BIC Sport takes on SIC in a Global Rights Package

In a move this past weekend that rocketed through the stand up paddling industry, BIC Sport reached an agreement with FLOW Sports, Inc. for the worldwide rights to operate, market and sell SIC (Sandwich Island Composite) stand up paddleboard products.

Flow Sports, Inc., the owner of SIC, confirmed it has completed a global deal with BIC Sport, a world leader in watersports for over 35 years.  This merger promises a bright future for SIC as a premium, performance stand up paddleboard within the BIC portfolio.  BIC Sport’s global marketing reach also promises that SIC will now become available to over 90 countries across the globe.  In short, BIC Sport is going BIG with SIC!

“BIC Sport is proud to add SIC to its portfolio allowing us to offer this iconic and prestigious brand within our family of brands.  This deal caps off BIC Sport with a premium, performance brand with world-class products from the recreational paddle enthusiast to the most elite paddlers in the world,” says  Thierry Verneuil – President of BIC Sport.

SIC already hosts such elite performers and brand ambassadors as Seychelle Hattingh, Kody Kerbox, Jeremy Riggs, Caio Vaz and Lina Augaitus.  This consolidation of brands brings a level of performance to BIC previously unseen before.  Everybody wins!

Their success in water sports is undeniable.” Scaturro went on to say, “I have had the privilege to visit the factory in France and am blown away with the state of the art technology that BIC Sport uses to manufacture their products. I think we can learn a lot from each other.”
