  • NRS Earl 6 Inflatable SUP Board

    Q:

    What board would you recommend for choppy lake paddling ? Earl or Baron and how are the different ? Whick style fins should I use for better tracking ?


    Thanks NRS I work at a SUPChile

      A:

      The Baron will be more stable, the Earl a bit sportier. For lake paddling, definitely the longer 9" fin will give you best tracking.

  • NRS Earl 6 Inflatable SUP Board

    Q:

    Hey NRS,

    My name is Nicolas Buenaventura and I run a small company called SUPChile in Pucon. (Look us up on Facebook). I just started a small rental and instructional business and NRS is our biggest supplier through Ian Garcia's RiversLakes&Oceans boards, lifejackets and paddles were all about NRS !
    I have looked at bunch of different boards but felt like the Earl were the ones I wanted to buy for many different reasons, packing, maneuverability and transport to the beach every day.

    But I was wondering if the Baron 6 is really much more stable than the Earl 6 ?

    Which style fins would you recommend for lake paddling ?

    The lake in Pucon gets a little choppy due to wind and I feel the Earls are a little hard to stay on ... would the Baron make any significant difference in terms of stability against small waves ?

    Thanks Guys at SUPCHile we really enjoy all of your products .

      Nico, that extra 6" of width in the Baron definitely adds extra stability. I think you'll like it.

  • NRS Earl 6 Inflatable SUP Board

    Q:

    Do you really lose that much speed going from an Earl 4 to the 6? I weigh around 180 to 190 pounds, depending on the time of year.
    Asked on 8/21/2013 by greg from Oregon

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The 4 and 6 have the same dimensions, except for the thickness, so speed won't change. For your weight I think you'll like the 6 much better.

      John, it includes the K-100. It's a bit of work at the 15 psi, but it does the job.

  • NRS Earl 6 Inflatable SUP Board

    Q:

    I am torn between Earl 6 and Czar. I am 200 lbs, so I figured 6 inches is the way to go - that's clear. I live by the ocean, so surfing / choppy conditions is definitely on the menu, but I would also like a decent flat water performance (i.e. I don't expect a speed-demon, just good enough to do some distance without being a total drag). So, obviously, my concern for Czar is its flat water performance. The concern for Earl 6 is the surfing / choppy water part - how does it compare to Czar? Will it still perform decently on the waves? Please, help! I can't decide! :D

    Thanks!

    Asked on 6/10/2013 by Vladi from Manhattan Beach, CA

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Vlad, the Czar is definitely the better choice for the surf. Its length and width will make it more stable in big waves. It won't be as fast as the Earl, or track quite as well, but if your primary use is surfing, with secondary flatwater, the Czar is a better choice. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, if you want to chat about it more.

  • NRS Earl 6 Inflatable SUP Board

    Q:

    How do you recommend storing the Earl 6...that is, if it's going to be a couple of weeks between uses can it be left fully inflated, should some air be let out, or should it be completely deflated?

    I see a mention of 3 D rings; how would you recommend using tie-downs to hold a small float bag?

    This will be used on flat water, and some moving water and class 1, not likely to be used in the ocean. I'm an experienced kayaker, new to SUPs, 180 lbs and perhaps introducing friends to SUPs who might weigh more. Is this a good choice for those uses, and is it rigid enough to still perform ok on flat water?

    Thanks...
    Asked on 4/10/2013 by supper from Oregon

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Any inflatable is subject to over inflation when transported inflated in hot weather or when gaining altitude. If you're storing in controlled conditions you can leave it inflated, but I'd let some air out to take stress off the seams. We've added D-rings to allow multiple options for tying on a dry bag or other type of gear. The Earl 6 has plenty of flotation for you and your friends. You might also consider the Baron 6; it's wider and therefore more stable for beginners. And yes, it's plenty rigid for flatwater performance.

      Comments about NRS Earl 6 Inflatable SUP Board:

      I use this board in the local protected areas and some choppy areas. I'm a noob, so just getting the hang of it. I love it! I'm not interested in racing, so the speed is not a factor. It's a forgiving board and easy to recover balance from near mishaps. My friend wants one, too! I love that it fits in my vehicle! Tried it at a local Paddlefest and fell in love.
