SIC Bullet

In this video #2 we look at weather forecasts, tides, and how to find the best locations to get you on the water for your first successful downwinder. This video is done in a vblog style and we aim to provide you with all the information and inspiration needed to give downwinding a try.

Downwinding is great fun, and to give it a go for the first time you really don’t need to have the latest specialist kit or be a super athlete. We really hope that this video series will give you the confidence to get out on the water in the wind with the kit you’ve got in the garage, and give downwinding a go!

This new SUPboarder video series is all about feeling the wind on your back and how to get into one of the most exhilarating sides to our sport… Downwinding. It’s one of the simplest SUP disciplines and it can be done almost anywhere, from narrow rivers to open seas. This series of 3 videos is going to give you all the downwind information you need to get you on the water safely.

Starting off with this video #1 we talk about what exactly downwinding is and we take a look at the basic gear needed to get you on the water safely for the first time. Look out for video #2 where we will be doing a small estuary/river downwinder and giving you all the information you need for a successful first downwinder. And in #3 we will be talking about going on more adventurous paddles in more open water/sea states.

Downwinding is great fun, and to give it a go for the first time you really don’t need to have the latest specialist kit or be a super athlete. We really hope that this video series will give you the confidence to get out on the water in the wind and give downwinding a go!

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.
