Features of the BIC Sport Cross

BIC paddleboards are known for their tough-tec epoxy construction, which make their boards extremely durable. The molded watertight EPS foam core gives structural rigidity to the board, while the extremely tough outer polyethylene skin gives maximum impact resistance. You can play rough with the BIC Cross SUP and not worry too much about denting or damaging it.

The unique keeled nose of this BIC stand up paddle board offers excellent glide and enhanced tracking ability, making it an easy ride, especially on flat water and in low surf conditions. The soft EVA foam wave-groove deck pad offers good traction and is comfortable underfoot.

There are 10 deck attachment points on this BIC Sport SUP, which allow you to add accessories – for example fishing rods and cooler boxes, making this an incredibly versatile board. There are also six deck attachment points for securing gear, although there is no fitted bungee storage system. There is an ergo-grip carry handle in the middle of the board.

The large flat deck could also work for yoga and is great for families, making this a great all around paddle board.

To sum up our BIC SUP review: This stand up board delivers great performance at a reasonable price point. Its stability makes it suitable for beginners while its versatility makes it a good choice for an adventure board – be it fishing, yoga or fitness.

Recommended Accessories

Carbon Fiber SUP Paddle

We recommend a carbon fiber paddle, and particularly love the 3-piece adjustable paddle from Super Paddles. It is very easy to put together and take apart and is adjustable from 72 to 86 inches. Most importantly it is super light at just 2.8 pounds, and is strong and durable.

SUP Carry Bag

Protect your board with a bag. The BIC Sport paddle board bagsare specially designed to for their boards. Constructed using extremely durable and heat resistant PolyPro fabric, this SUP carry bag has heavy duty zips, a padded shoulder strap, carry handle and is perfect for day surf trips and general board storage.

SUP Leash

Wearing a leash is always a good idea. This BIC Sport coil leash stretches to 11’ long but the tight coil means it doesn’t get in the way or drag in the water. It has a padded below-the-knee strap. Suitable for flat water conditions.
