planing and downwind sup is the MTB bike of SUP by sic maui

Standard Characteristics: Considered the mountain bike of the water, planing hull boards have no limits on where they can go. These boards are most recognizable by their flat planing bottom, pointed nose and pin tail shapes. While the original shapes were derived from open ocean and downwind designs, these shapes have proved to be the most well rounded, sea-worthy, allaround shapes in SUP. Planing boards have less rocker than a surfboard which means they track and glide very well although not as well as a displacement hull. They are designed to excel in cross-chop, side-chop with a tail wind or wave scenarios and can be surfed in small to mid size waves. If you are looking for a board with unbridled access to any condition for unlimited fun, then there is no better design.

  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 inside 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.

  2. INFLATABLE SIC SUP - BULLET AIR-GLIDE (FST) 14'0" x 28.5" - Deck - 105226

    Downwind | Tour The Bullet series Air-Glide boards just got a serious upgrade in both performance and safety.
    The Bullet now has a double air chamber with the second air chamber running from just in front of the fin box through most of the board. This not only creates a fail-safe should you ever have a problem with the main chamber when offshore, but it also helps to make these longer length boards even stiffer and perform even better in touring and downwind conditions, at the lowest possible weight and 15-20 psi.
    The Fusion Skin Technology (FST) is used on both the outer body and inner bladder, making these some of the stiffest and safest boards on the market. Now you have compact performance and safety all in one board. This board also complies with many of the new regulations for offshore paddling, whereby a board needs to have a secondary air chamber.

  3. SIC SUP - BAYONET (SF) 17'1'' x 28'' W/FAST - Front - 103329

    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. SIC SUP - BAYONET (SF) 14'0'' x 26" - Front - 103327

    Elite Downwind | Performance Fitness | Touring The Bayonet Series is pushing the limits of what is possible in downwind performance paddling. This 14'0'' x 26" 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 is 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.
