SIC “Sandwich Islands Composites” is the vision of master shaper/designer, Mark Raaphorst. Mark has more than 20 years experience building surfboards, windsurfers and outrigger canoes.
He is credited as being one of the pioneers of SUP and for creating some of the most winning race boards in the world. SIC boards are designed for speed and agility. Their sleek styling, piercing waterlines, quality craftsmanship and attention to detail have also earned SIC the reputation of being the “Ferrari of SUP boards”.
SIC boards are inspired naturally by elite racing, but also from a lifetime of lessons learned. These lessons have led to a reputation for some of the fastest, smoothest gliding, most maneuverable boards in the world. SIC is also seen as an innovator whether it is in composite or hollow construction, its Active Steering System and its futuristic Standamaran™.
Whether you are a seasoned pro in either open or flat water racing or the weekend surfer. Whether you are looking for better fitness, touring or just all-around fun; SIC has something for you. This range is simple, yet concise and will be offered in a few constructions that will meet the demands of the most elite competitors in the world. SIC will also offer more durable and economical constructions for those that appreciate performance but do not measure their success in ounces.
