SIC board models stand alone like no other, and for those who are all-in on the sport, owning an SIC SUP is as good as it get's! Here is some more insight from the brands perspective:
Paddling is a dance with the flowing tides, it is tranquility, and it is the exhilaration of venturing out into the vast expanse of the deep blue. Even if you are taking your first strokes away from the water’s edge, deep within, you have always felt the sea allure and chased after it from your earliest memories. For most of us we have felt the sea’s allure from an early age and have chased after it in our own ways. While we all answer the same call, we are likely from infinitely varied backgrounds, and yet we all find our common likeness when we gather at the water’s edge and venture out beyond the shoreline. We may have chosen different instruments to play out our adventures; however, we each seek to harmonize with the elements in a symphony of water, wind, and waves. We seek individual experiences, and yet we are united in our common quest. We are more alike than we are different. We are a community of watermen and waterwomen, and we are all Bound By Water.
For all of us at SIC, hitting the water is not only about fun but also part of our job. We have the privilege to dream, create and test boards. We learn something new every time we are on the water and from each other’s experience riding and trying new gear, and then we get to put them into production for your pleasure. Looking forward to 2021, we focused on pushing the limits of performance in all disciplines. We also wanted to develop gear that performs nicely for the entry-level and recreational all-around performance because we believe that the waterman / waterwomen lifestyle should be aspirational and accessible to all. Whether new to the sport or searching for the ultimate in performance, we welcome you to the SIC Ohana and hope that you enjoy what we have created for you.

With NSP's extensive network of top shapers and team riders, they have created staple SUP designs and ground-breaking proprietary constructions that will keep them as leaders in the industry for years to come! Here is some more insight from the brands perspective:
NSP was born in 2001 from the vision of Bruce “Buzz” Hansen, a life-long surfer, skater and all round waterman. While working on Maui as a custom surfboard builder, Buzz had an epiphany about producing affordable, versatile, durable and great performing surfboards. Buzz correctly realized there were everyday surfers who needed an affordable board that performed in Hawaii, yet they didn’t require “custom” or specialized competition or extreme surf boards. Creating amazing products, firmly maintaining our surfing roots while we expand in other exciting watersports with the best possible designers, engineers and materials involved. And last but definitely not least; “Nature”. Choosing repurposed, recycled or renewable resources wherever we can is essential to us as a brand, creating a more sustainable future for ourselves and our sport.
NSP began selling in Hawaii and Australia in 2002 with immediate success, making surfing more accessible. In 2007 NSP was one of the first brands to produce SUPs based on the brand’s original concept of performance and value. Today, NSP is one of the world’s largest brands in recreational surfing and stand-up paddle boards. Everyday new enthusiasts, young and old, go out and introduce their friends and family to the freedom of the sport and the brand. Since 2013 NSP has produced some of the fastest SUP race boards on the planet, quickly racking up some of the most sought after and prestigious titles with the help of national and international athletes. In almost 20 years, with hundreds of thousands of boards produced, our core values remain the same. NSP stays true to the vision of creating the best performing, affordable, durable surf and paddle boards in the world.
