For the northern hemisphere winter is the time for wind and swell, and the two together can mean one thing… great SUP downwinding. We’ve got hold of arguably one of the best downwinding boards in the business – the SIC Bullet 14′. As well as doing a full SUPboarder review we’re going to be doing a series of videos using the SIC including a ‘getting into downwinding series’ teaching the downwinding basics and more. Starting on lakes and estuaries on windy days then moving out into open ocean swell to catch some endless glides.
The SIC Bullet may be the ideal board for downwinding but that doesn’t mean you need to have it to go downwinding. We will be talking about taking your 10’5” downwinding too.
Downwinding is a fantastic side to our sport and it’s so simple. It involves travelling in one direction only, downwind with the waves and wind on your back. It doesn’t have to be about crossing oceans. It really can be for everyone. We look forward to showing you what downwinding is all about.
Remember these first look videos are not full SUPboarder reviews, they’re not even close! They are unedited, gut feeling videos showing what’s in the box and how they look for the first time.
