In the face of a rush towards elite-level performance boards and the seemingly endless models that have appeared since the year 2000 (supplied by manufacturing in the Far East) BIC Sport has opted to do things very differently. We’ve concentrated our efforts on a smaller, focused range of products and have invested in establishing monotype/formula competitions for the long-term health of the sport. With manufacturing based in France we’ve been able to respond rapidly to the sport’s changing trends using exclusive, highly efficient production methods and technologies. Our 2016 Windsurf Collection consists of four series of boards concentrating on a limited number of models: TECHNO, NOVA, BEACH and SUP WIND.
• The new 240 D TECHNO is the perfect tool for getting started; a wide, stable and light weight board.
• The NOVA 240 D incorporates a full deck pad for comfort and ease of use. It’s designed for clubs, schools, and for any beginners looking to learn fast and progress quickly on one board.
• With the BEACH series you’ll find the unrivalled strength and solidity of our legendary DURA-TEC construction, combined with imaginative modern shapes. A robust, durable board at a price that will suit sailing schools, clubs and families looking for simple, accessible fun on the water.
• SUP is the most recent arrival in the BIC Windsurf range. Our three SUP WIND models are the «missing-link» between windsurf and the new paddle sport that is coming of age. The 11’6 is a huge success with families and clubs looking for a quality all-purpose board: great for SUP, great for windsurfing.
As for competitive windsurfing, BIC Sport has been steering a very different course from its market rivals lately. After winning numerous World Championship titles around the year 2000, BIC has turned its attention to establishing monotype Competitions and developing the Techno 293 One Design as the worldwide official competition race board for juniors. This has made Techno 293 OD a true windsurfing phenomenon, one of the most dynamic race class in the world.
The BIC Sport vision of windsurfing is simple: learn fast, progress quickly, get into regattas and racing, spend time having fun on the water! We see windsurfing as one of the most accessible and affordable ways to get under sail and keep things simple.
We wish you many unforgettable sessions in 2016 and hope to see you out there!
