ERS 12-6 V3

THE INFLATABLE TOURING SUP WITH SPEED AND OUTSTANDING TRACKING


The Earth River SUP 12-6 Touring is the board that lets you cover the most distance with the least effort. Unlike many other boards in the 12’6” class, the ERS Touring is a full 32 inches wide, making it impressively fast without feeling tippy. 12’6” class boards are a luxury that many paddlers deprive themselves of because their length makes storage a challenge. This inflatable, which rolls up to fit in a car trunk or backpack, solves your storage problem and puts you on a board that will let you glide past all but the fastest race boards.

DESIGN AND SHAPE


LENGTH – 12’6″ / WIDTH – 32″ / THICKNESS – 6″
WEIGHT – APPROX. 27LB / RIDER WEIGHT – UP TO 350LB

PERFECT FOR: Lake, coastal, or waterway exploration, paddling with passengers or cargo, overnight expeditions, racing on choppy water, for paddlers of all sizes. Can also be used in small surf and rapids.

PERFORMANCE

The Touring 12-6 is an all-round dynamo of a SUP board that combines renowned Earth River SUP features and performance, into a board that is designed for long distance paddling and increased weight handling. It also allows a great deal of fun all round paddling and isn’t just constrained to covering distance.

Glide is the strength of this board but it doesn’t come at the expense of stability.  Beautiful tracking and speed combined with performance features and tail pad enhancements not found in standard touring boards gives you a ride that performs on the long paddles but has the flexibility to mix it up in other types of water.

An incredible touring shape that doesn’t follow the typical ‘touring’ board class design parameters. Fast, but also stable which helps in chop and a beautifully graded rocker that I’ve even run through a few pocket waves with. It will handle a ton of weight and performs almost like an all rounder. For distance it’s an amazing ride that tracks like it’s on a wire but keeps the features in the tail area for easy leverage into shifts and full degree turns. Great for up river attainment training workouts and because it’s super stable for a 12.6, it can actually handle fast moving water and class II rapids with short fins or no fins which no other board in this class can go close to doing.

JOHN GANCARZ

I use the 12-6 V-II as my instructor board because it’s fast and can hold an extra passenger or two without a problem. The versatility of the fin system allows me to switch up sizes according to the type of water I’m operating on. Even with the added materials for rigidity, this board remains light and maneuverable when out of the water allowing for easier portage over difficulty terrain. This came in handy when we ran out of time to paddle around a cove for 8pm fireworks display at the DC Wharf. Without hesitation, we climbed a 10 foot wall along the Potomac River, threw our boards over it, and were able to hike to the other side and put back in with time to spare. Would’ve never tried that with a hard board!

Now that I’m land-locked again my favorite board is the ERS 12-6, which makes for easy transitions between mountain lakes and swiftly flowing rivers. The width makes the board extra stable when the afternoon wind and boat chop picks up on the water, and on those glassy early morning paddles it glides as smooth as any hard board I’ve paddled. The length of the board and the built in cordage on the front end is a really important feature for me, since I’m planning some overnight expeditions this summer. Tip: Carrying capacity can be extended easily if needed by running bungee cord through the front D-Ring!

Love this giant for exploring the river and doing long distance runs. Despite its size it’s fairly light weight, and it stability makes it super fun in the rapids, and playing around with your footwork. For flatter days it tracks effortlessly, and makes for a super chill ride.

Sarah Sackville

The ERS 12’6″ V3 felt super solid from the moment it was inflated. It was the first thing I noticed, it felt particularly stiff. So it wasn’t a wonder that when I got on board I felt as solid as a cement block. I put this down to some great materials and manufacturing. The shape of the board makes for a great touring board as the slender body with a narrower nose and tail helps with the glide. Additionally, the rocker in the nose has been carefully engineered to give the best assistance in challenging conditions but not hindering you covering distances on flatwater.

JASON BRADLEY

At the end of the day, if you’re in the market for a fun inflatable touring SUP that performs extremely well and is backed by a solid warranty, the Earth River SUP 12-6 V-II is a fantastic choice. This is a board that’s designed for serious use by a company that’s super passionate about both the sport and the gear they make, and there’s a reason why these boards are currently in use at several ultra-demanding SUP instructional schools.

STEVE HERNANDEZ

Could not be happier with my ERS 12-6 Sup I’ve owned it for a few years now. I paddle near the keys and will mostly take it out most early mornings as I just enjoy the relaxed feeling of paddling endless scenery. The best recreation purchase I’ve made in a long time and it was well worth investing a professional level board.

DOUG WILLIAMS

FLORIDA

I really enjoy my ERS V-II, inflatable SUP. I had 2 surgeries on my stomach and was looking for something lighter that was more manageable for 1 person to carry. After a fair amount of research on the internet and You-Tube, Earth River SUP seemed to prevail in quality and the company backing up their product. I have a heavy duty board and feel very confident with it as it is very durable. That is important to me because I take the SUP in the Gulf of Mexico, Naples/Collier County, Florida. I also take it into the inlets, mangroves and feel confident with the board that it is safe for me and my family. My wife and I ride the board together and find it to be very enjoyable and great all around exercise for the core and cardio. What a great sport and what a great board for family use. Thank you for a great product and great customer support.

ULTRAGRIP DECK PAD

Grip you can trust in the toughest conditions. We've worked at refining a rubber compound to produce a stronger and up to 40% thicker deck pad than other well known high end SUP brands. In addition to its traction advantages we have kept the compound light so as to avoid adding unnecessary weight to our boards. 

The Ultra Grip diamond structure works by channeling water to increase dry surface contact. It's incredibly comfortable to stand on even for hours on end - and will perform every time, in any type of water.

EXPERT RECOMENDATION

These are expert users of the Earth River SUP 10-0 that have been asked for their opinion on the board. These users have extensive use of these boards and choose to use them in there SUP instruction programs on a daily basis.

GREG MILLER

ACA LEVEL IV INSTRUCTOR
POTOMAC RIVER, MD

“The 10-0 is a great board that is performs in whitewater, surf, and flatwater. It turns on a dime and was designed to be a board that offers a lot of fun. The 33” is a nice stable platform on a short board but still allows you to get a nice technical stroke down.

We use the several 10-0s in our fleet and even first time students take to it with ease. Uniquely designed, and built like a tank”.

“A really fun take anywhere, and do anything board. I’ve done several whitewater outings on it and the extra buoyancy really gives a nice lateral sway, to feel your way through. It’s feel does take a bit of getting used to, but once you find that balance point and get a sense for its unique shape and balance it’s a blast to ride”.

ENHANCED DYNAMIC RAIL™

The next generation in advanced rail technology. The Enhanced Dynamic Rail™ is built right into every Earth River SUP V3 board. There are no unwieldily rail rods to fit and carry each session, no extra weight from excessive PVC layers or ineffective ‘carbon’ layered rail tape. The EDR is designed to enhance the ERS experience in active / moving water environments such as surf, rapids or rougher water to give you a better paddling experience. Riders will apply force at a multiplier of their body weight when leveraging turns / making adjustments in rough water and the Enhanced Dynamic Rail provides resistance when you need it – without affecting the glide of the board on flat water or carrying weight when you are off it.
