As one of the best paddle board brands and premier performance SUP designers in the industry, SIC (Sandwich Islands Composites) has created some of the most elite performance stand up paddle boards on the planet! SIC SUP models stand alone like no other, and for those who are all-in on the sport, owning a SIC SUP is as good as it gets! Here is some more insight from the brand's 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.

Known the world over as one of the most premier stand up paddle board brands in the business, Starboard is most known for their innovation in design that produces the finest boards you can buy. Year after year they create best-in-class designs that sets the highest mark standards in the industry, and have some of the highest elite athletes as team riders in the sport. Here is some more insight from the brand's perspective:
Over the years your support has made it possible for us to keep on developing better gear, help young riders become world champions and start our journey in becoming a better brand for the planet. Our SUP range has evolved over the last 15 years. It’s been really fun to work with our product managers Ollie O’Reilly, Raul Delgado and Film Wattasunthon on what we believe is the future of the sport. Our range has always been broad, ahead of the game and it is all reflected in the 2022 board and paddle offerings. In Feb 2021, we signed an MOU with ICF, the International Canoe Federation, becoming their Official Environmental Action Partner. We are now an experiment on how a sports federation and private sector can activate environmental work on a broader scale. One of our targets is to see Paris 2024 become a 10 x Climate positive event, by reducing emissions and eventually “drawing down” 10 times more CO2 than what all travels and facilities emit. As the Olympics has good media coverage we can showcase the power of reforestation. The 2021 ICF SUP World Championship in Hungary will already set the trend by becoming 10 x Climate Positive. Thanks for believing in us, making our dreams come true and paddle with us for the future.

To this day, Jim is obsessed with hydrodynamics and has decades of experience with scientifically testing paddle mechanics and strain gage force analysis, and has an extensive background in composite technology applications. In layman's terms, the more Jim puts into it, the more you'll get out of it.
