SAN CLEMENTE, California - There is only one week left in the SIC Maui (Sandwich Islands Composites) Charitable Acts contest where the winner receives a SIC X-12.6 Air-Glide inflatable stand up paddleboard. To enter the contest share a photo of yourself doing a charitable act via the SIC photo app and the winner will be selected at the end of the June.
“We’ve been working with an organization in Hawaii, Paddle Imua for two years and they gave us the inspiration,” explained Belar Diaz, SIC Global Marketing Director. “The work that they do for kids with special needs to get them to experience the ocean inspired everyone at SIC and that’s what made us realize that people do extraordinary things everyday. With this contest we are looking to hear about the charitable acts that inspire your local community.”
Air Glide SIC inflatables are in a notch above the rest. All SIC designs are derived from their composite counterpart. This means tested geometry and proven performance translated to inflatable DSC technology “Drop-Stitch Construction.” SIC’s selected the best inflatable factory in the world to build its collection. DSC makes these boards durable, functional, fast and maneuverable. The boards are six-inches in thickness and boast 20+ PSI, which provides maximum stiffness and minimal flex. This equals speed, maneuverability and the widest possible weight range for paddlers of all sizes. Aesthetically, they mirror the same stylish design language as their composite brethren and consistent with the high value appeal that is distinctively SIC. They come complete with transport bag, high volume pump, three piece adjustable paddle and low drag removable fin system.
“Inflatables truly represent the versatility of SUP, adding the additional bonus of ease of transport and storage,” said Diaz.
“With the innovation in technology in recent years, they have gone from recreational toys to high performance boards that meet the majority of people’s expectations. In some countries inflatables represent the majority of the market and at SIC we took notice and designed several models following our philosophy of Five Star Performance that we put in all of our products. The X-12.6 Air-Glide truly exemplifies the best blend of fun, fitness & performance.”
The Charitable Acts contest runs the entire month of June 2015. Click here to access the app to upload your photos.
