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. SIC SUP - BAYONET (SF) 14'0'' x 24.5" - Front - 103326

    Elite Downwind | Performance Fitness | Touring The Bayonet Series is pushing the limits of what is possible in downwind performance paddling. This 14'0'' x 24.5" board is for more accomplished and elite downwind paddlers. This board is often used by serious touring and fitness athletes as well. The Bayonet continues to take top positions at the major downwind and channel crossings in Hawaii and around the world. With its strengths in early planing, maneuvering and top-end speed, the Bayonet continues SIC’s legacy of having the fastest downwind boards in the world. These boards edge well, plane up in sub-twenty mph winds, and stay on glide longer. They do take a bit more agility with the squarer rail shape, which promotes stability on the narrow widths but are not as forgiving as SIC’s Bullet series boards which have a bit more rocker and generous under tuck on the rails. The Bayonet’s lower rocker profile means that the boards are really fast at low speed.

  3. SIC SUP - BAYONET (SF) 17'1'' x 25'' W/FAST - Front - 103328

    Touring | Downwind
    Victorious in prestigious races such as the M2O (Molokai2Oahu), M2M Challenge (Maui2Molokai Challenge), Olukai and many more, the Bayonet 17’1” continues its open ocean dominance and perpetuates SIC’s legacy in downwind and channel crossings. Whether a world-class paddler or advanced recreational paddler, you have never experienced the speed and handling like that of the Bayonet.
    The Bayonet was specifically designed to be stable and plane early in lighter winds and smaller swell. Its lower rockered nose and bow design pierce through wind and chop with ease. More volume and deck contour were added to the decking to shed water and return swiftly to the surface when the nose pokes. These features come in handy when paddling on bumps with a closer fetch, whether you are paddling on a lake or the Columbia River Gorge where waves are tighter together than on an open ocean swell such as a Maliko run in Maui. The balanced outline provides surprising rail-to rail stability for the board’s overall width. SIC’s proprietary Foot Actuated Steering Technology (F.A.S.T.) system gives the Bayonet unprecedented directional control. It is also designed to be locked off if need be and has multiple failover systems.

  5. RS (SF) 12'6 x 20 Youth

    Elite Race | Fitness | Touring The RS Youth boards are scaled down versions of the current RS 12’6” x 23.5” and their volumes (12’6” x 20.0” at 196L and 12’6” x 22.0” at 217L) are perfectly scaled for the smaller and lighter youth paddlers who are looking for nothing short of the fastest designs on the water.
    These boards are molded to ensure that every board that comes off the line shares the same rocker line and overall consistency of shape with the master shape. Like the 2020 RS 12.6 and 14.0 adult models, these boards have been fined tuned in rocker, outline, and volume to further increase their speed and overall performance.

  7. SIC SUP - RS (SF) 12'6 x 23.5" Youth - Front - 103337

    Elite Race | Fitness | Touring The RS has become a huge favorite amongst paddlers of nearly all levels and garnering the prestigious SUPConnect “Race Board of The Year” award in both 2018 and 2019.
    The RS has now been fine tuned and made even faster and stronger. The refinements are slight but the improvement to top-end speed is significant. The nose has been pulled in slightly from the wide point giving it even better into-the-wind performance, acceleration and top-end speed. The volume from the rails has been stacked back into the top deck and shaped into a higher center peak to sheer water and pop up more quickly when the nose punches through chop. The nose of the 14’0” was lowered by approximately 1/4”/635 cm and the tail lowered by 1/2”/1.27cm to optimize the waterline while the rocker line of the 12’6” remains unchanged based on the rider feedback. The cockpit has been lowered slightly.
    The all new Super Fly (SF) construction has been a massive leap forward in durability, stiffness and overall performance. With a full PVC wrapped core to give the board tremendous impact resistance with its tip-to-tail / 360-degree rail-to-rail wrap few boards can compare.
