Hey guys, first post on SUPZONE!  Here is a freshwater perspective on up-winding on the same SIC bullet 14 (apologies for the shakiness on the hip cam).  For those who haven't upwinded on freshwater, the distance between freshwater wave crests is much tighter = more waves to paddle through.  I agree that the nose of the SIC tends to wander in heavy upwinds, but the increased rocker is perfect for the tight freshwater waves of my lake (Lake Champlain).  The first part of these vids has good upwind footage.
