ERS 9-6 V3

THE BEST INFLATABLE SUP FOR AGILITY – LIGHTWEIGHT AND JUST ALL ROUND FUN


The Earth River SUP 9-6 is a versatile all-around board in a smaller package. It is lightweight and portable, easy to inflate, and highly maneuverable and quick on the water. It is a favorite of the more adventurous among our riding team. While it excels in surfing and whitewater, Its 31” width makes it stable but still sleek enough to be used for touring and general paddling. 5 inches of thickness give it enough volume for intermediate riders up to 220 lb and novices up to 170 lb. Riders who have found the standard 10-11ft board size to ‘big’ have enthusiastically taken the reduced weight and size of the 9-6.

DESIGN AND SHAPE


LENGTH – 9’6″ / WIDTH – 31″ / THICKNESS – 5″ / WEIGHT – 22LB / RIDER WEIGHT – UP TO 200LBS

PERFECT FOR: Lighter riders, air travel, paddle surfing, and whitewater or any other pursuit where class leading maneuverability, and light weight are valued.

PERFORMANCE

The 9-6 V3 is a ride like no other. The slightly reduced size and weight give it and incredibly fast turning arc but maintains the stability that our all round boards are renowned for. It holds it own with the 10-0 in moving water yet maintains the stability of our 11-0 boards for smaller riders.

Run a single short center fin to keep the tail loose when surfing and switch it up to a longer fin when paddling flatwater. Add side fins to increase hold and stability and you have a board that really has no equal in versatility.

This is one of the most fun boards in the ERS V-II/3 range rivaling the 10-0 depending on the conditions. It’s an evolution of one of the original designs aiming at something that felt a bit more like a surfboard for some waves, but it also doubled down on being a great compact ride for a smaller rider. Plenty of the local riders have run these over the years through rapids but it’s equally at home surfing some small ocean breaks or just on a serene lake or flatter river section.

This is the board I spend most of my time riding and I take it everywhere! It’s great on the beach when there is waves, and fun to play on even when it’s flat. I take it through the everglades and national parks and have even put it through the whitewater around the Potomac when I’ve been back in Maryland. This is the perfect SUP board for anyone looking for an all round SUP that you can adapt to ride anywhere and a board I don’t think I will ever stop riding.

The ERS 9-6 is my go-to board when I want to play. It is so maneuverable! I’ve enjoyed experimenting with the different sized/shaped fins. We live full-time on the road in our fifth-wheel trailer, so weight and space are important to us. This board is light and very compact in the duffel. It definitely fits our lifestyle. 

INCLUDED

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.

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 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.
