I went for a paddle yesterday and there was a guy on a SIC RS 14x24.5. What a great looking board. He was no slouch and he was gone. He paddled around both islands about 1.5-2 ks longer and I took the short cut between the islands. So I came out infront and as he overtook me I thought I could get a tow from him. Nope,he was gone again. I have only tried this a few times though.
 Anyhow I go and see him and have a chat in the car park. He has owned various boards from various brands and does the odd race. He loves this board. Not as fast as others at certain times but overall over a 10 k race he loves it and will not change boards again for awhile he said. A little heavier than some but great construction.
 It is just a beautiful looking board. All the curves look right. It glides through the water beautifully. The one thing he said at 85 kgs it could have a little more volume or higher sides for winter paddling here. He didn't won't to go wider to get more volume.
I love my SIC RS. After years of changing race boards I now have no desire to change - the RS is just so pleasant to paddle and it’s so well thought-through in terms of design and the little things that affect day-to-day ownership enjoyment.

The only thing it’s not so great at is big downwind. But I have specialist boards for that. And for little downwind ripples it is great, and pretty much everything else too. And obviously, it is fast, as Seychelle etc are showing, in a wide range of race formats.

Mark R really scored with the RS design. He apparently went through many prototypes honing the design, and it shows.

I have to admit A10, I really do like the looks of the RS. I’d love to test paddle one, but I don’t know of anyone locally who handles them. Oh well, probably saves me some money and the need to look for space to store yet another board   ;D
