Paddleboards

My inspirational quote for 2018 and what drove my work on the new 2019 shapes is: “Be the work of art in your backyard”. This slogan helped me go beyond my normal “make it fast and make it sexy”, and allowed me to conceive of slightly humbler designs focused on inspiring and giving confidence to paddlers looking to explore new places or go beyond geographic, emotional and physical boundaries.

These new designs reach back to voyager roots as opposed to the traditionally competitive pedigree that SIC has become known for. This year, I wanted to fuse performance with the culture and art I see in my backyard every day, from the Pacific Ocean to the lush forests of Maui.

In the Okeanos this inspiration is manifested in a more traditional look using natural wood and ocean-inspired line-art to symbolize voyaging and the waterman lifestyle. Aesthetically, the artwork spilled over into SIC’s new cruising (Saber and Sage) and surf shapes (Slice) which offer a balance of progressive shapes combined with a natural and organic appearance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m known as a guy who loves to make the fastest boards on the water, but I also love cruising and surfing with my friends and most of all my wife, Donna. Getting back to the roots of paddling for pleasure helps me remember what compelled me to leave the Netherlands when I was 16, to chase my dreams of becoming a waterman and master the craft of shaping.

Thank you for supporting SIC and for all you do to inspire me. While it may seem like I am a one-man-show, please know that there is whole team of passionate people and paddlers contributing to the creation of SIC’s great products. From our team of athletes to the folks in sales, marketing, customer service, shipping, finance, logistics, R&D, QC... There are many people working hard to ensure SIC’s aspirations are achieved and that you get the best products possible. SIC has a very special ohana and we hope that you feel this care and the aloha in every SIC product.

I look forward to seeing you on the water

Mahalo nui loa to all.

  1. SLICE (GCC+) 8'6'' x 28

    SUP Surf | Explore
    The Slice is a performance surf SUP for the rider just getting into SUP surf as well as advanced recreational and competitive paddlers. Nothing was held back on the performance characteristics, so make no mistake, these boards rip. Not everyone has balance like a cat or can paddle with the board submerged to their knees, so we focused on stable shapes and volume distribution down the center line of the board giving you enough float to comfortably paddle out to the break and stand tall in the lineup.
    The rails have been profiled allowing you to edge into the face of the wave and slice through the water when powering through your turns. These boards are perfect for paddlers looking for stability without sacrificing performance. The Slice Performance is built in SIC’s Glass Carbon Composite + Innegra™ (GCC+) construction.

  4. SIC SUP - BULLET (DF) 11'0 x 28.5'' - Front - Back - Side

    Downwind | Performance Fitness | Touring
    The BULLET (DF) 11'0 x 28.5'' has truly become a classic and both defined and dominated downwind and fitness/touring for years.
    The Bullet has won SUPConnect awards for Best Board Overall and Best All Around Board and won accolades from Men’s Health and Outside Magazine to mention a few. With this kind of legacy we had to take extra time and care on this newly designed Bullet to ensure that this updated shape was a significant evolution from its predecessors.
    We kept and fine tuned the design starting with the rocker line which is similar to the back end of the Bullet v2 but with more nose rocker more closely related to the original Bullet v1 and F14. We added a similar nose and volume as the Bayonet which recovers extremely well when the board does poke. The deck shape sheds water quickly. The widened chisel tail and the squared up rails with forgiving under-tuck handle exceptionally well in side chop, side slipping into an ocean swell, and surfing waves as well as providing additional rail-to-rail stability. We added a slight convex to the bottom nose section to mitigate nose slap when paddling head to wind.
    The BULLET (DF) 11'0 x 28.5'' handles any condition even better than its predecessors while being faster, more stable, forgiving, and more durable.
