Shade for Rafts - Introducing River Sombrero

A rafting friend and I started a new business www.riversombrero.com bringing bimini tops to rafts. Please have a look!

"River Sombreros" provide 30+ square feet of shade and handle river breezes without taking the top down. They fold back quickly and compactly for running rapids. We developed a frame mount to easily attach the bimini to a frame and move it to your desired position. We also worked with the manufacturer on pole placement to create room for oar movement. Since we're opening a new market, the manufacturer has given us excellent pricing that we are passing on to customers. It's a very good product in a wide range of sizes, colors, and fabrics.

Through the end of May, use the discount code "freeshipping" to get free shipping on a River Sombrero top! Any questions, please feel free to email [email protected]

Thanks for checking out www.riversombrero.com!

Can you set it up to shade the front of the raft ? Turn it around so it folds forward ? My wife and kids ride up front. Thanks

Swimteam101, the top pivots at the center point and folds forward or back - you just unclip either the forward or rear straps and fold like an accordion either direction. You just have to make sure the poles clear your oar locks when folded down (only an issue if you are mounting to the frame and not to decking).

You can mount the top wherever you want and turn it around if you like. Place it so you have free oar movement. Hope this helps.

hmm...works for me - maybe a network problem when you tried? Try typing in River Sombrero — Welcome to your browser.

oops, that didn't appear correctly. Try typing the website name into your browser.

Yep- Pastorius. The logistics of a photo shoot made it a lot easier to go someplace where the raft isn't always floating away! Plus it was too early for a river trip

That makes sense- I just saw the La Platas in the background and at first was trying to figure out how you would have gotten that angle from the river before it occurred to me that it must be Pastorius.
