PERFORMANCE

The SKYLAKE 9-6 S3 AQUA is designed for pure fun. Perfect in Lake - River - Coast environments you can set it up to paddle with friends one day, and take it out in surf the next.

Speed and tracking are both achieved with the use of a single center fin that will also have the effect of keeping the tail loose when SUP surfing. Add side bites for more stability and hold on flat water, up to class II rapids or coastal chop. It will keep its responsiveness in all conditions.

SKYLAKE S3

COLE REINTSMA

ACA LEVEL II INSTRUCTOR FLORIDA

Paddled close to 150 miles through the Grand Canyon on the Skylake S3. Near a month long rafting trip with coming and it was amazing to have a board that weighs so little but kept up with everything I wanted to do on it. It's a really fun board to ride on boat wake waves or surf with and it fits in the back of my car without having to deflate it!

By far my favorite place to ride my ERS SUP Board is in small surf all along the east coast. I purchased this board specifically for those conditions and have been more than happy with the performance. I like that I can have fun in the ocean on days when the waves are not big enough for traditional surf boards and would otherwise be looking for something to do. An added benefit of this board is that it performs great in all other conditions as well. I have taken it on flat water and it is stable enough for me to have fun for hours. I have yet to take it on a river, but I think it would also perform great on slow moving rivers. I can't wait to use it for other activities like fishing and yoga. Very happy to have purchased such a versitile board that fits my needs perfectly and then some. Would definitely recommend ERS SUP Boards to anyone interested in purchasing an inflatable SUP. Thanks!

We use my inflatable SUP primarily in the ocean. I purchased this ERS SUP to replace my older and longer boards. I enjoy paddling out past the surf zone to leisurely cruise the coastline and find it a fun challenge to get out and come back in without wiping out!

I also enjoy lots of other locations for the beautiful scenery. My husband has an inflatable kayak and we explore some local lakes after hiking. Most often we are renting a house on a beach somewhere in North Carolina, however, with the favorites being Hatteras Island, Wrightsville or Emerald Isle. My son is a surfer so he loves to "steal" my board and ride some waves. I really like how you can customize the fin box for ocean, lake or sound.

Having recently purchased this board, so far we have only tried it on the beaches and bays around
Rehoboth Beach, DE. I love it so far! Looking forward to next month when we will bring it to Hatteras, N.C.
The picture I am submitting is from yesterday at Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware. I wanted to paddle out and explore some bay beaches in search of sea glass. The hunt was fruitless save for one nice piece but the choppy channel currents were a fun challenge! You can see the Cape May/Lewes Ferry as it passed behind us.

I love getting out on the water for adventures with my girlfriend and kids. Our ERS SUPs are the perfect way for us to hit the water. We've mainly used them for paddling Lake Julia in DuPont State Forest or floating the French Broad River here in western NC. I was able to fit 2 boards in one of the bags and strap it to the back of a cargo bike for getting to Lake Julia from the parking lot. We used cars to shuttle between take out and put in for floating the river due to time constraints but will use a bike to shuttle sometimes too. This summer we plan to get them out in the surf which is why I chose a shorter model SUP. First on the agenda is taking them along for a trip to the Pacific NW. That spurred another purchase: wetsuits! I'll be taking them to the gulf coast as well when visiting family in Pensacola, FL and I'm sure we'll get them out to Folly Beach, SC at some point too. That's our favorite beach that's not quite as far away. Other plans include paddling Lake Jocassee in SC to see a few of the waterfalls that feed right into the lake. Last time we borrowed kayaks and my back didn't feel that great. Looking forward to standing up the next time we get out there!

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.
