SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - SIC received two 2017 Supconnect Gear of the Year Awards with their SIC Bullet and Feelgood Series paddleboards. The Bullet Series was awarded the Best All Around Gear of the Year Award and the Feelgood Series won the Creative Gear of the Year Award. The 8th annual Supconnect Gear of the Year Awards were announced at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah this week, with the remaining categories to be announced at Surf Expo.
“It was an honor to accept the award for the Supconnect Gear of The Year Awards for best all around paddle board for the SIC Bullet Series and the Creativity award for our women's Feelgood Series,” said Anthony Scaturro of SIC. “On behalf all of us at SIC, thank you for your votes and support. Aloha and Mahalo!”
The annual Supconnect Gear of the Year Awards are comprised of 10 categories and decided with support from voters and feedback from retailers and the SUPconnect advisory board.
“The SIC Bullet has a notorious record of winning the Hawaii Cross-Channel Races and at the same time being widely used on flatwater for touring, recreational use and even surf,” said Andre Niemeyer of Supconnect.
“It’s no surprise that it has once again taken the win for the best All Around stand up paddle board of the year. The SIC Feelgood has stepped outside of the male-dominated shadows of SUP’s heritage and delivered an astonishing board that appeals powerfully to both the women’s and also men’s market.”
