Earth SUP

logo Earth SUP by BIC Sport

Gliding silently across the glassy surface of a lake, exploring new waterways with only your board and paddle, interacting with nature at its wildest, and the only trace that is left behind is your wake…
SUP is an activity that can help you relax and unwind, discover and explore, or take you on your ultimate adventure, Deep into Nature.

At EARTH SUP our mantra, Deep into Nature, is as much about the equipment we use as the places we go. The board and paddle are the tools we use to engage and interact with our surroundings.

We feel the same principles that guide us in our daily lives should be applied to the equipment we build and use. EARTH SUP is a new Paddleboard range of products which, wherever possible and feasible, aim to build and source our gear with construction techniques and materials that respect the environment in which they are used:
  A focus on on bio-sourced, renewable and/or recycled materials
  A production process that respects sustainable development, limiting waste by minimizing use of fossil fuels, painting & toxic resins.
  A commitment to ongoing research and development to progressively increase the quantity of bio-sourced, sustainable materials and the reduction of waste in the production process.

Unfortunately it is simply not possible today to build a board with zero impact on the environment. For example, at the core of every EARTH SUP board is an EPS (Expanded PolyStyrene) core, as no other feasible alternative exists. However, with EARTH SUP we’ve made the pledge to be better, and to continually develop the range of products so that wherever possible, we will make changes that make a difference.

Construction planche de paddle Earth

Fast-growing, it re-crops quickly, has a dense root structure to help stabilize soil and reduce erosion and grows well in fire-damaged forest zones. Its large, dense leaves rapidly create a rich floor loam after leaf drop.

Its light, straight structure and resistance to water or resin absorption makes it a favorite among airplane and boat builders. These characteristics make it an ecologically sound and material with ideal mechanical properties for the production of light weight, highly durable SUPs.

Construction planche de paddle Earth

Modern growers have by and large kept to the ancient methods in producing the high quality flax that now serves as the base for developing tough, durable fibers for industrial applications. The excellence of their product stems from a unique combination of damp ocean climate, rich soil and a highly prized understanding of historic techniques handed down through the generations.

Flax is leading the way in the quest for clean, high-performance materials. Growing flax requires neither irrigation nor defoliant chemicals and also is a carbon sink. Useful right down to its roots, flax produces no waste. Researchers have achieved considerable progress in adapting the long flax fibers to production of highperformance composites.

Construction planche de paddle Earth

“Cork” is actually the bark of the tree, formed by build up of dead plant cells that protect the living tree trunk and branches.

It takes 8 years for the bark to grow sufficiently for harvest. Its high rot-resistance and waterproof qualities make it a much-used material in modern eco-homes. A soft, supple feel under foot, non-slip properties and beautiful aesthetic help explain why we’ve chosen to use this material in the deck pads of all EARTH SUP boards.
