Looks very nice but I've never heard of them and don't see any internet presence for them in the usa.
You've never heard of SIC Maui??? Or this particular model? SIC Maui are one of the main SUP brands, and this model is obviously new, so presumably will be available soon. SIC boards are generally excellent.

No, never heard of the brand.  And there are 2 (renters, no dealers) within 200 miles of me, so not that popular here. Big in Europe maybe? It certainly looks nice!

Odd. I am relatively new to SUP - coupla years. I am only 150 miles inland. so maybe there is a bigger presence. When I paddle with groups on lakes around here, if a paddler is on a composite hard board that isn't rented there is probably a 50% chance it is either a SIC, Starboard or Boardworks.

Im 6-8 hours inland. Nearest SIC dealers From me are 4 hours one way and 3 hours the other. A couple bullets around here (quite a few SIC models in the okanagan)but most shops inland In B.C. are dropping their high end brands, including SIC. Big move to shops paring right down and carrying only one or two brands catering to the recreational market. One SIC dealer at a shop in the okanagan told me they are selling inflatables at a 10-1 clip compared to their hard boards and the recreational hardboards are whats moving for the composite market. The high end niche market is dying quickly and shops are done with sitting on inventory inland here.
