An intense focus on quality and design has made Earth River SUP (ERS) stand up paddle boards the best and most versatile inflatables on the market. Pumped Up SUP has worked very closely alongside ERS with both entities starting around the same period and evolving together as a part of the Maryland / Virginia / DC paddling communities. We’re very proud to represent ERS and see it grow from a dedicated project to make a better and more rugged inflatable SUP for rental and paddling schools, into a leader in inflatable technology and manufacturer of world class paddling equipment.
ERS boards excel in stability, tracking, and agility and include performance enhancements such as configurable fin systems and ergonomic kick tails, allowing the rider to perform at the highest level in varied conditions. Gregory 'Suggz' Miller was running rapids and surfing inflatable river surfers when it was just a bad idea and was a formative presence early in the river paddling scene. This experience with a 40+ year surfing background lead to the ERS design philosophy of Lake, River, Coast and each board series has specific advantages to ensure you are riding the best performing inflatable SUPs in its size and shape category.
The Earth River SUP product line is organized into three lines - SKYLAKE GREEN, SKYLAKE COLOR, and ERS DUAL series - which are differentiated by the board’s material layering build and fin system.
The boards in this series are made with a lightweight but highly durable fusion unilayer construction and fitted with three permanently attached unbreakable polymer fins that eliminate any concerns about fin loss or breakage, allowing the paddler to focus entirely on the paddling experience. The Green and Color series feature a ultra grip texture deckpad and removable handle wrap.
The Skylake Green series is extremely popular for SUP lesson and rental programs being favored by business owners who want the ultimate reliability from their SUP fleet.
The boards in this series share the lightweight and durable construction of the Skylake Green series, but feature the Lake-River-Coast (LRC) configurable fin system, which lets the rider adapt the board to different water and terrain conditions by swapping out different types of performance-enhancing fins in the center and side fin boxes.
The Skylake Blue series comprise boards favored by SUP riders who are looking for lightweight versatility and performance.
The boards in this series add an additional discrete layer of industrial-strength PVC-coated fabric to the board construction for a board that holds up to demanding use in the most challenging paddling environments. DUAL boards are also fitted with the LRC fin system and come with an expanded assortment of fins for more precise tuning of board dynamics.
DUAL boards feature an ERS 'Ultra Grip' in a diamond cutout shape to enhance water runoff and micro texture anti slip technology to ensure the best ride in whitewater or surf.
The most popular all-around board shapes in the ERS line, the 9-6, 10-7, and 10-9, are available in all three constructions.
The 10-7 (10’7”x32’x5”) board outline is the “go-to” shape in the ERS collection, as it strikes a perfect balance between length, width, and thickness, crosses over adeptly between flat water cruising, surfing, whitewater, yoga and fitness paddling and works for all but the lightest or heaviest riders. The 10-7 is a perfect board shape for all types of paddlers as it provides an extremely versatile SUP that excels in all water. The 2021 model features the ERS proprietary Enhanced Dynamic Rail (EDR) that further enhances board performance, and provides a superior ride to any other board in its class.
The 10-9 (10'9”x34”x5”) shape meets the needs of riders who want some extra stability to gain confidence while learning or to more easily handle choppy water conditions. It's fast across the water and can be used for surfing small waves and larger whitewater (DUAL). These variants make great boards for Yoga too as the center handle wrap is removable so you can lay completely flat on the board while not giving up the attributes that make it a great all round SUP for casual paddling. The DUAL is an exceptional board designed for stable cruising but it is geared up for whitewater or surf.
The 9-6 (9’6”x31”x5”) shape provides a more compact and agile option that is very fun to ride in surf and whitewater (DUAL) and takes less energy to carry and inflate. This board suits people of smaller stature as an all round board, but allows a great deal of flexibility for riders of all sizes who want to get a little more adventurous with their paddling pursuits. A lightweight versatile shape that can be used in any type of water.
The 10-9 (10’9”x30”x5”) and 11-2 (11’2”x32”x5”) SKYLAKE GT boards are extensions of the SKYLAKE BLUE series designed for a blend of touring and all-around recreational paddling. These make great performance boards for those that enjoy long paddling sessions that cover a lot of distance.
These boards are similar to the Skylake Color range, just being a little more narrow and with lower rockers to increase cut and glide for straight ahead paddling. The squared of tail also aids with speed and faster turning on a longer board.
The 12-6 (12’x32”x6”) is a touring shape designed for covering distances with enhanced glide, but wide enough that you can paddle leisurely without much concern for your balance. It brings something different to the touring board class in that it has been designed as a fun multipurpose board that isn't confined to the typical touring class board design parameters.
This board is a personal favorite of ERS Designer Gregory Miller who routinely takes it through whitewater and into the ocean purely for fun. It's a touring board that allows a much wider range of paddling than most on the market, and is the choice for those who want a long board with all-around features.
The 10-0 ERS DUAL (10’x33”x6”) is a crossover board designed for dynamic performance in whitewater and ocean surfing, while having increased volume for heavier riders and plenty of speed for flatwater paddling.
It's a short, fun board that provides a unique entry into the ERS lineup for paddler who wants a great whitewater board that crosses over to other disiplines without bringing the bulk and sluggishness associated with large whitewater specific boards. Perfect for the adventurous paddler looking for something different in their quiver.
All ERS SUP boards come with a convertible backpack/rolling bag and dual action manual pump. SKYLAKE COLOR, GT, and ERS DUAL boards also come with an assortment of fins with mounting hardware. The rolling backpack is sturdy, has oversized wheels to facilitate travel through airports, and is generously sized to leave extra room for additional gear and clothing while traveling. The included manual pump is a compact and lightweight dual-action design, which makes the inflation task as efficient as it can be with a non-electric pump.
Earth River SUP boards purchased from Pumped Up SUP also come with optional discounted carbon hybrid paddle (or choice of full carbon paddle discounted upgrade), a coiled, straight or hybrid leash (or upgrade to a releasable river leash), and a handy handheld pressure gauge. Other accessories that you shouldn’t be without can be added at a discount at the time of board purchase, including an ERS 12VDC electric pump and a choice of personal flotation devices.
