ERS 12-6 SKYLAKE BLUE

THE TOURING SUP WITH SPEED, BALANCE AND AN EXTENDED DECK PAD


The Earth River SUP 12-6 SKYLAKE BLUE is the rugged solution to covering large distances, and will glide a rider, or riders, of any weight to their destination. The SKYLAKE design extends the deck pad while keeping it light. We envisioned the SKYLAKE BLUE 12-6 to be a touring class SUP that allowed riders to enjoy it as a great all round board – it can also catch a small wave if you’re game. A single standard US fin box allows configuration of your perfect fin setup and keeps it simple, meaning more time on the water.

This ride is perfect for riders looking for a little speed on their next paddle. Compared to race boards the durability is unmatched. Because this board is inflatable the stability is also supreme compared to hard boards. I’d take this board touring with any load of weight on the front. It’s the perfect adventure board with the combination of it’s portability in the air or a vehicle and speed and stability on the water.

I have owned two other boards, one a hard and the other a inflatable of another reputable brand, and the ERS board has been by far my favorite. The quality of materials and overall feel off all their products have been far superior and most importantly, the company stands by their product. I had an issue with the bag and paddle, they were easy to get ahold of and they sent me replacements right away. the owner was also very helpful before I made my purchase by answering any questions I had. I use my 12’6″ for play with the kids and for exercise. I was worried it would be too big but it handles great and I have found it to be a great all arounder. I have actually been looking at getting another SUP and definitely getting another ERS!

We like to take the ERS Board to various small reservoirs. The first time I tried it was at a near by reservoir called East Canyon. My girlfriend took to it right away. I did not. I struggled at first. Another place that is great for paddling is a Smith Morehouse Reservoir as well as Causey Reservoir. This summer we are going to see how our dog Duke likes to board.

I LOVE my ERS!!! I’ve been able to take it to many lakes in Utah. I enjoy it on my own but I am also able to navigate easily with another person on it with me. My nieces and nephews also love it! I’ve traveled with it to Hawaii. It was super easy and convenient to take as a checked bag and to transport to rivers and beaches in Hawaii. I definitely recommend it! This is a purchase that you will never regret!

NEW IN 2019

ENHANCED DYNAMIC RAIL™

The next generation in advanced rail technology. The Enhanced Dynamic Rail™ is built right into every Earth River SUP SKYLAKE 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.

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.

“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”.
