ERS Inflatable SUP Sizing And Uses
Find Your Ideal Size – Shape – And Board Type
Earth River SUP stand up paddle boards are the most verstile inflatables on the market. They excel in stability, tracking and turning and provide performance enhancements such as a custom shaped nose rocker and raised heel pads, so they perform in all conditions. Each board class has specific advantages and specific enhancements to ensure you are riding the best performing inflatable SUPs in its size and shape category. So, what size SUP board should you get? Quick answer:
For an all-around SUP board, look for a length between 9’6″ and 11 feet, a width ranging from 31 to 34 inches, and a thickness of 5 inches for optimal stability. If you plan to surf, stay on the shorter end of the range. If touring or racing are in your plans, consider a longer board in the 12’6″ class or the SKYLAKE GT™ series. This will help you narrow things down, but to select a board that is perfect for your size and weight and for the types of paddling you plan to do, check the descriptions below and click through to the board detail pages to find your perfect match.
