For the third straight year, SIC Maui's RS standup paddle board has been awarded 'Best Race Board' in the Supconnect Awards. No other paddle board has accomplished this honor. RS stands for Rocket Ship and the board does just that. For 2020's upgraded version of the RS the board has been made even faster and stronger. The refinements are slight, but the improvement to top-end speed is significant. The nose has been pulled in slightly from the wide point giving it even better into-the-wind performance, acceleration, and top-end speed. The volume from the rails has been stacked back into the top deck and shaped into a higher center peak to sheer water and pop up more quickly when the nose punches through chop. The nose of the 14’0” was lowered by approximately 1/4”/635 cm, and the tail reduced by 1/2”/1.27cm to optimize the waterline while the rocker line of the 12’6” remains unchanged based on the rider feedback. The cockpit has been lowered slightly. And to top it off, the all-new Super Fly (SF) construction has been a massive leap forward in durability, stiffness, and overall performance. With a full PVC wrapped core to give the board tremendous impact resistance with its tip-to-tail / 360-degree rail-to-rail wrap, few boards can compare.
