ERS SKYLAKE 10-9 S3 | GREEN


The ERS SKYLAKE 10-9 S3 GREEN is the most versatile inflatable SUP on the market. If balance is your number one priority and you want a SUP for varied environments, then look no further. Nothing comes close to the blend of balance, toughness, and portability that the SKYLAKE GREEN brings to the water. Recommended as an all-around board for beginner to intermediate riders up to 225lb and advanced riders up to 245lbs that want to seek adventure, and need a board to keep up. 

THE Lightweight Paddle Board with The Best Stability


Stability is the focus of the 10'9 but it isn't a big and unwieldily behemoth like many boards on the market that are just big, bulky and wide without the proper attention paid to the real factors that create a stable design.

DESIGN AND SHAPE


LENGTH - 10'9" / WIDTH - 34" / THICKNESS - 5" / WEIGHT - 22LB / RIDER WEIGHT - Up to 225LB (245LB for advanced riders)

PERFECT FOR:  Riders of all sizes - touring/exploring lakes and coastal waterways - fitness paddling - and occasional yoga, surfing, and whitewater.

Skylake Green 10-9 S3

PERFORMANCE

We built the SKYLAKE 10-9 S3 board is based on the classic 11-0 shapes that we have refined over the years. The original 11-0 was built by us in 2012 and was the first 34" width inflatable SUP manufactured. It's a proven design with upgraded construction and features that will please even the most discerning SUP enthusiast.

It's surprisingly quick across the water due to its low profile 5" construction and has excellent turning and tracking.  An excellent all round board that focuses on a solid stable glide without sacrificing the fun.

This is the evolution of the board shape that Paddlestroke SUP and ERS developed back several years ago because there wasn’t an inflatable board specifically designed with both stability and close to the water glide in mind. It is a SUP that will have you up in seconds your first time, but won’t get old or boring because of the slimline five inch depth. The permanent fins bounce off anything and it is a perfect board for a paddler who just wants to get on the water with as little fuss as possible, but still wants a board of amazing quality and performance. The build quality and features of this board are distinctly ahead of its competitors and its longevity is proven you never have to worry about an issue with an ERS board. At Paddlestroke SUP we put our boards through a brutal schedule each summer and the SKYLAKE Green boards form the core of that fleet and they perform every time.

We used to use both Red Paddle and ERS for several years and also tried several other brands in 2018 as a concept but the ERS boards have always been the far and away best in class and preferred by both my instructors and students. In 2019 we have replaced every board / brand we had and went exclusively with Earth River SUP Green models. We have used the 10-9 in its various iterations over the years as our main teaching and instruction board since 2012 and it has consistently been our preferred board. For first timers it provides and incredibly stable platform that we have not seen another board go even close to matching, including hard boards or composites. Paddlers are up on their feet within minutes and excited to paddle which is the best reflection on our business as a teaching and instruction school. We also run a Yoga class that we used to use a variety of boards but we would have return student all requesting the ERS so we decided it was time to make the switch to running them exclusively.

The ERS Skylake Inflatables have been an amazing addition to our college outdoor program at Johns Hopkins University. We primarily use the boards to introduce new paddlers to SUP which is where the Skylake excels. The many features create stability for any paddler; this is the perfect board to get people started while entertaining the experienced paddler. Even more importantly for our program, the boards are incredibly durable and easy to set up. The full kit with bag and pump is important for any user. We also love supporting a local small business! We are excited to continue growing our SUP program while adding SUP fitness and yoga experiences for the Hopkins community.

When my sister and brother in law first raved to me about their ERS SUP board I was excited to try but being that I have been a fan of kayaking for many years didn’t think I would like it enough to purchase my own. Then I actually tried it and couldn’t believe how much more versatile it is than a kayak. I love all the different ways I can play, standing, kneeling, doing yoga, and laying down to sun bath. It’s fun to jump off of to go swimming and easy to get back on from in the water, plus with the amazing stability made it easy to balance from my very first time. Being able to deflate it for travel and storage is such a huge plus and the carrying case that came with it makes it so easy to pack and move. All summer I had been borrowing my brother in laws to go paddle boarding with my sister, but made the plunge to purchase my own for the family sailing vacation we went on this fall in the Chesapeake Bay. It was a fantastic trip and inflating all the SUP’s while on the sail boat was easy. My favorite none conventional activity that I love my SUP for it to find a beautiful place to anchor and apply a French clay body mud mask! So relaxing to lay in the sun will it drys and then just jump in for a little swim to rinse it off. Super happy customer!

Ultragrip Deck Pad

Grip you can trust in the toughest conditions. We've worked at refining a rubber compound to produce a stronger, higher density 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 UltraGrip 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.  Providing exceptional comfort and grip, partnered with a removable neoprene handle it creates a clutter free flat surface that is great for all SUP activities.

ENHANCED DYNAMIC RAIL (EDR™)

The next generation in advanced rail technology.  The Enhanced Dynamic Rail is built right into every Earth River SUP SKYLAKE board. There are no unwieldy 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 apply force at a multiplier of their body weight when leveraging turns / making adjustments in rough water and the EDR provides resistance when you need it – without affecting the glide of the board on flat water or carrying weight when you are off it.

ERS X9 CONSTRUCTION

ERS is known for the best performance and reliability and in the industry, which starts with superior board construction. The X9 method using SKYLAKE Fused Laminate creates a permanently sealed board outline that is fused during fabrication to create a rigid structure without requiring high inflation pressure or excessive volume.

ERS SUP boards are hand built one board at a time by skilled technicians under ISO9001 manufacturing certification to ensure consistent and repeatable processes and attention to detail in each individual board. The result is a board with better glide, unmatched rigidity, and proven longevity.
