2018 was a good year, having won Race Board of The Year for the RS and equally as exciting winning Brand of The Year for the second time in less than five years. However, we never let that recognition go to our heads, and throughout 2019 we worked tirelessly to create and refine our lineup, which has led to an amazing collection for 2020. Read more
Some of these highlights are a refined RS where we fine-tuned the rocker, outline, and volume distribution to make this rocket ship even faster. We redesigned the Bullet, taking in feedback from paddlers around the world, our team, and the best of the Bullet v1, v2, and the Bayonet. Then made this popular touring, fitness, and downwind board faster, more stable, and more forgiving than the iconic Bullet of the past.
Refining and redesigning took us a few years to do because we could not go backward on this fan favorite. We have taken our time getting into the rapidly evolving foiling market and will introduce three new foil boards for surfing, SUP surfing, and a SUP/Wind convertible board. I am proud of this small but very effective range. I have made countless prototypes under my Skunkworks brand Flying Dutchman, so these boards have been tested thoroughly, or else I would not be putting my signature on them.
SIC has further expanded its surf offering, which supports my vision of SIC being a brand for waterman and waterwomen, and not just a paddleboard brand. After all, my journey began as a windsurfer, and that led me to Maui, to outriggers, and eventually SUP, and now foiling as well. At the end of the day, it’s all about fun. And for or all of us who chose this lifestyle, we are all one and the same. We are all Bound by Water. "
Aloha and Mahalo nui loa to all. See you on the water!

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.

The BULLET (UNL) 14'0'' x 27.5'' with F.A.S.T. steering 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 (UNL) 14'0'' x 27.5'' with F.A.S.T. steering handles any condition even better than its predecessors while being faster, more stable, forgiving, and more durable.
