Like the confluence of two rivers coming together to form a bigger more powerful one, New River Gear purchased Salamander Paddle Gear in 2008 and this year have allied the two well established, respected product lines into one, Salamander Paddle Gear. Innovation and quality are two distinguishing characteristics that permeate both companies resulting in an assemblage that is quite logical and very exciting!
