If you want a fast all around fitness/race board that has a bit more width for added stability then the X-12 is your board. Stability means you can paddle further with less fatigue. Stability is also the key to SIC boards winning pedigree as founder/shaper Mark Raaphorst’s design philosophy is: You are fastest when standing on your board rather than lying in the water next to it. The wave piercing bow and dual zone rocker offer low drag in “displacement mode” while in calm waters and is stable when in “planing mode” in choppier, off wind conditions. Sharp rails at the tail shear water to maximize speed.
The X series boards feature a wave piercing bow, displacement hull and a highly efficient “2-phase” rocker- line that keeps the X series boards in glide mode between strokes. Full rails encourage stability so the rider can put his energy into the power-zone of the stroke rather than wasting precious energy to maintain balance. Sharp rails at the tail shear water for drag reduction and unleash nearly unlimited top-end speed.
