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 - 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.

  10. SIC SUP - OKEANOS (DF) 11.0" x 28.0" - Sup Connect Award - 103330

    Race | Tour | Cruise | Fitness
    The Okeanos, one of the most exciting boards that SIC launched in 2019, has quickly been hailed as one of the greatest new fitness and touring boards on the market, winning the SUPConnect “Best Touring Board” and “Best Overall Board” awards in 2019.
    This touring and fitness board paddles with ease and is capable of maintaining a fast and efficient glide. The nose chine in the bow helps to soften the ride in rough waters and track extremely well under power in wind and cross-chop. The generous tail width and full, squared up rails help make this board very stable. The wide point in the front section of the board has been shifted forward which also adds to the overall stability.
    The board has also been outfitted with numerous tie downs to mount your cargo and can handle quite the payload. It is also super stable rail-to-rail making this a great board to fish from. The finbox configuration is also outfitted with a standard U.S. finbox for your main stabilizing fin, however side fins can be added for additional tracking and stability. You can also run the board with two shallow draft side fins in shallow rocky waters to provide a stable platform to rest the board on land when you have substantial gear tied down to the decking.
    The Okeanos is built in SIC’s Dragon Fly (DF) construction which is constructed with a full oak wood veneer wrapping the core - tip-to-tail / 360-degree rail-to-rail wrap. This is arguably one of the most durably constructed composite boards on the market today and it remains at a very competitive weight and affordable price.
