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 weights 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!

Pure awesome in the shape of a SUP board. The SKYLAKE 9-6 S3 is a board I’ve been on all winter while surfing up and down the west coast. I’m on a several month road trip so wanted to keep my boards as small and light as possible and this board shreds and packs up to almost nothing. The flex fins actually work really well in the coastal waves I didn’t feel the need to switch them out to the semi flex side bites. Swapping out the center to something shorter also lets me put someone else on the board without worrying about them bottoming out. It’s an incredible board that not only surfs well, but is a great compact all-around shape that is really smooth across flat water, chop and is great on the river.

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.
