Bill Parks had two passions: paddling and business. So in 1970, with $2000 in savings, he started NRS (Northwest River Supplies). As a business professor, Bill provide fellow enthusiasts with products, and also allowed him to put his teaching to work. Watersport enthusiasts love NRS for their wetsuits, neoprene shorts, rashguards, nylon dry tops, neoprene gloves, socks and paddling booties. NRS is the brand of watersport accessories that we are very proud to carry in Ocean River. We have a long running relationship with NRS so if you cannot find something, we are pleased to research and find it for you.
