MAUI, Hawaii - The race board that Connor Baxter rode to victory in last week's Maui 2 Molokai may have been painted like another brand, but the shape and performance was distinctly the work of Mark Raaphorst of SIC. There is a reason why the world's best SUP racers opt to have a SIC board under their feet in the open ocean races. Baxter knew he needed the competitive edge in order to defend his crown, racing this year's Maui 2 Molokai on a SIC Maui Custom Bayonet 17.1 with our SIC’s F.A.S.T. (Foot Actuated Steering System). Our next chapter in SUP racing and downwinding, the Bayonet Series board is scheduled to be released in 2018. This board is super fast in all conditions, planes early in sub 20 knots and flies in 20+, as proven by Baxter.

SIC Team Athletes also had a strong showing in the 8th Maui 2 Molokai Race. Kody Kerbox finished in the top 10 with a ninth place finish, clocking in 3:41:12. In the Women's Race Andrea Moller and Devin Blish finished in second and fourth places, clocking in at 3:58:16 and 4:07:41 respectively.
