At NRS, we love the water, and nothing makes us happier than helping others enjoy it too.
NRS began in 1972 with a humble hand-typed catalog. The goal? Putting quality gear in the hands of boaters, headache and hassle free. We’re still committed to that original vision today.
Over the years, we’ve grown from a small Northwest-based whitewater company to a worldwide supplier of equipment and apparel for all types of on-the-water fun.
Whether you’re a river runner, touring kayaker, canoeist, fisherman, stand up paddler, or all of the above, we share your passion.
Water flows through everything we do. It carries us on adventures and connects us with one another. It’s truly the stuff of life, and we help you get out there and live it.
