Community and Environment
At Earth River SUP, we consider our product to be an accessory to something much larger and more valuable: the natural environment in which we and our customers recharge our souls with air, water, nature, fitness, and community.
Our ethos is molded by the experiences we have had that transcend SUP as a sport and deepen our connection with nature. Paddling alongside dolphins or manatees on the coast. Exploring the flowing waters of a river while spotting eagles overhead and being spotted by families of deer gazing at us from the woods. Getting out on a lake and feeling the sense of contentment that results from just beingon the water. These are the experiences that remind us of the incredible natural resources we have -and are in danger of losing if we don’t take care of them. This page is devoted to the causes and organizations we support and the resources that give meaning to our products.
