NRS Big Earl! A SUP Review!

Aaron wrote 988 days ago:


The Big Earl is a great inflatable board!   It has everything you need in a portable SUP.

- Very stable design

- Removable skegs

- Extremely Rigid

- Bombproof pump and carrying bag

- Great price…$995

We took our SUPs to the Little TN river.  It was a medium flow with plenty of technical class 2 rapids.  Lake levels were down so we were able to paddle the narrows which added 3 more class 2+ rapids.

I removed the skegs knowing that the river was shallow.  The Big Earl handles just fine without the fins.  It turns well, grabs eddies and you don’t have the fear of getting superman’ed off the board in the shallows.

I was able to strap my Watershed drybag to the front tiedowns and there were no problems.  This board was designed to haul your gear.  It is wide and stable allowing you to take gear and not lose stability.

I love the weight of inflatable SUP’s!  At 29 lbs you can take this board anywhere.

I filled the board to 15psi and it was perfect for warm water and a 60 degree day.  That was 2 weeks ago and the board is still inflated.  It hasn’t lost any pressure.

If you are looking for an economical and rugged inflatable SUP, look no further.  This board from NRS will do the trick.

I haven’t tried it on anything above class 3, but I’m looking forward to paddling it down some great rivers in Mexico this year.

You can find the NRS Big Earl at:

Have a great winter everyone!

See you on the water!

Badfish Stand up Boards!

Aaron wrote 1164 days ago:


Mariela and I went to Colorado for a few weeks in May and June.  If you’ve never been to the rivers out west, you are missing out.  We stayed in Buena Vista, CO and surfed/paddled:  Numbers, fractions and the BV and Salida Playparks.

We were able to surf Some of the Badfish Boards, both down river and surf.  Mike and Zach are at the forefront of river surf design.  It was awesome to surf some completely original designs.

River Runner surfingRiver surf is a new very new medium.  Kayaks have been surfing river waves for years but SUP boards are relatively new.

Badfish stand up Boards are available in a variety of sizes.  5′ 11″ to the 9′ river runner. They are all hand crafted in Salida,CO.
