      A:

      I'm 5' 9" and 140lbs. The Earl 4 seems just right for me, but I think it would it would be sluggish if you're any more than 160lbs.

      A:

      I would say go with the Earl 6. I'm 5'8" and weigh 175 lbs. the Earl 4 is great when I'm solo, but when the Captain is aboard (weighing 15 lbs.) we end up taking on a little water (see Photo).

      A:

      One of our experienced SUPers says "An experienced surfer should be able to treat this like a long board Waves that are not too steep should be surfable. Won't work well at all for river surfing, regardless of experience. For that, choose either the Czar or Tyrant."

    Q:

    Can we exceed the weight limit if we bring a children on the paddle board (sitting a a different position than the paddler)? I have an Earl4 and I enjoy it. Now the kids want to come with me. I understand that a single heavier paddler could flex the board by exceeding the weight limit of 190lbs. But if the weight is more distributed is it ok? Thanks,

      A:

      Mary, when deflated and packed in its carry bag it measures ~ 33" x 20" x 8". The board itself weighs only 21 pounds. In the bag, with the fins and repair kit it weighs close to 30 pounds.

      i experienced this problem until i read the directions and realized the valve has 2 positions ..... turn to the right for one way valve (for inflating board) .... turn to the left for 2 way valve (for deflating board) - good luck!

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      It sounds like you have some debris in the sealing surface of the valve. Follow the steps in this video for cleaning the valve - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/how_to_troubleshoot_boat_valve.asp - If you have to remove the valve for cleaning, be careful not to lose the inner portion of the valve inside the board.

    Do you know of any bungee netting I could buy to fit the d-rings? What would the best small dry bag to use that also might fit the d-rings?
    Asked on 7/22/2013 by Sloot from Brooklyn

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      A web search for "bungee netting" brings up many choices. Or you can tie up your own with our Bungee Cord, Item # 1842. The NRS HydroLock Grommeted Dry Bag, Item # 2974, with its extra tiedown points is a good choice. If you need something larger, take look at the small Expedition DriDuffel, Item # 2955.

      Pete, if it's adapters to connect to the valve that you need, the Leafield Valve Adapter, Item # 14821 is the best. It screws onto the Leafield C7 valve for a secure coupling with the pump.

    Best Uses

      Comments about NRS Earl 4 Inflatable SUP Board - Closeout:

      Selling points for this board include portability, affordability, compactness, quality name brand manufacturer. I've used this board on both ocean surf and flatwater and am extremely happy with its performance.
      Other pros: it only takes 5 minutes to inflate and 3 minutes to deflate, more durable than hardboards.
      Cons: the last bit of pumping to get it to 15psi gets tough (consider it a warm up to your session), I weigh 155lbs and at times I felt some flex in the board while paddling in rougher seas, keep some spare parts on hand for those pump fittings in case the dog eats one or two.
      Not sure whether it was my inexperienced paddling skills or the fact that it is 4" thick, but I found it a challenge to cut in surf. I've yet to paddle a hardboard, but am thinking it will be a thinner profile thus easier to cut, and less prone to flex in heavier surf.
      At 10'6" it is a big board thus I'm considering a smaller board (either the NRS Tyrant @ 9' or a hardboard) specific for paddle surfing

        Comments about NRS Earl 4 Inflatable SUP Board - Closeout:

        Got it a week ago and took it to Block Island, RI. Kept the board inflated all week, didn't lose any pressure and it rode well in ponds, the bay, and the ocean. No big waves there to test that but it felt pretty stiff in the chop. Only problem now is my I've and kids want their own. Going to buy a pump with a pressure gauge but the included pump is fine.
