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. BULLET 11'0

    The Bullet 11.0 is truly a one of a kind board in the 11 foot range. Derived from its larger Bullet series counterparts, this board is the ideal companion for the lightweight paddlers who are looking for an all-round board. Due to its lightweight and EZ-Grab handle, it is easy to load on and off the car for transport. The main focus lies on recreational fitness paddling. Regardless of your intended use: flat-water fitness, open ocean gliding or small wave surfing, there is no better board in the world that covers all these disciplines as well as the Bullet 11.0.

  2. BULLET 12'6

    The Bullet 12.6 has taken on its own identity in the world of SUP. A scaled down version of the Bullet 14, this board is the mountain bike of the water. Whether looking for a board that glides with ease around the harbor or you want to catch some bumps in the open ocean or lake, the Bullet 12 is for you. The Bullet 12 can often be seen in local surf lineups on smaller days, as this board can do it all. This makes it perhaps, the most well rounded board in the world. If you don’t want to have multiple boards in your quiver then you want the Bullet 12.6.

  3. BULLET 14'0

    The Bullet 14.0 is one of the most winning downwind boards in the world. This master of open water has also proven to be one of the most versatile fitness and touring boards in our line. With slightly more rocker and volume than the Bullet 14V2, this board is more stable and forgiving than its flatter rockered counterpart, the V2. The additional rocker allows the board to fit nicely into the wave troughs and maneuver with ease on the face. It is less likely to pearl its nose in the gangliest of conditions and makes beach landings in pounding shore break negotiable. The full volume rails and rail tuck give the board more glide and stability with ease over slop and side chop.

  5. BULLET (SCC) 14'0

    The Bullet 14.0 V2 is the ultimate downwind racing machine. This board is offered with and without the SIC F.A.S.T. Steering. The outline’s widest point has been shifted slightly forward and the rocker flattened, which provides the rider with better stability when powering up in lower wind ranges and smaller chop. You would think that straighter rocker would cause the board to pearl easily, however, the narrowed tail brings the nose up, mitigating purling and unlocking top end speed by reducing wetted surface area. The board has slightly lower volume than the Bullet 14 TWC, but maintains its iconic full volume rails and gradual tuck to promote stability, which incidentally also reduces paddler fatigue over long races or touring distances

  7. BULLET (DCC) 17'4 w/FAST

    The Bullet 17.4 is the fastest open water board on the planet bar none. It is THE must have board for any open-water elite racer who wants to strike the podium or is serious about their glide. This downwind missile has a narrower outline and more gradual rocker, which keeps you in the energy zone of the swell, maintains the highest average speed, and can maneuver quickly to catch bumps from any direction. Its Panel-V tail design keeps the nose elevated in the troughs and in the chop.

  8. Bullet Air Glide 14.0

    Not everyone has the space to store a 14 foot+ paddle board or a vehicle to transport a 14-footer, let alone a 17-foot board, but that shouldn’t keep you from owning one. With the Bullet Air-Glide inflatable now anyone has access to the beach and a high-performance board. Made from the Finest Drop Stich Construction (DSC) and the stiffest Fusion Skin Technology (FST) these boards are light, stiff and fast. They are great for adventure and fitness paddling and designed after their composite counter-part (the Bullet composite) so they are ready to drop in and power up on the windier days for those looking for a compact downwind board. Don’t let your tiny spaces keep you from the vastness of the open water.
