Meticulously shaped to strike the ideal balance of speed and stability. The V3 12-6 is designed to bring fun and versatility to a class that is often pigeonholed as only for distance paddling. Fast, stable, and so versatile it can run whitewater, be an ideal board to take the kids or pets on a paddle, or even push through the wave break to explore deep water coastline.
The Earth River SUP 12-6 Touring is the board that lets you cover the most distance with the least effort. Unlike many other boards in the 12’6” class, the ERS Touring is a full 32 inches wide, making it impressively fast without feeling tippy. 12’6” class boards are a luxury that many paddlers deprive themselves of because their length makes storage a challenge. This inflatable, which rolls up to fit in a car trunk or backpack, solves your storage problem and puts you on a board that will let you glide past most hard boards. It also allows a great deal of fun all round paddling, and isn’t just constrained to covering distance
PERFECT FOR: Lake, coastal, or waterway exploration, paddling with passengers or cargo, overnight expeditions, racing on choppy water, for paddlers of all sizes. Can also be used in small surf and rapids.
