WORLD OF WATERSPORTS

DEVELOPED & PRODUCED IN FRANCE

BIC Sport is THE worldwide watersports specialist. Founded in 1979 and long-established on the Breton coast in France, BIC Sport was created by Baron Bich, a man passionate about the sea and sailing who used his industrial prowess and know-how to develop modern windsurfing, the first grass roots board sport of the 1980s. Quickly established as the world leader in windsurf manufacture, BIC Sport has, in the last twenty years, diversified into other market segments including surf, kayak, junior racing dinghies and, most recently, into Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). BIC’s core values of quality, durability and affordability form the foundation of the brand’s reputation and opened up the world of board sports to hundreds of thousands of lovers of the elements, thrill-seekers, and those simply happy to spend time close to nature, out on the water, doing something environmentally sound. In fact, BIC Sport has made respect for the environment a priority in every stage of how it’s production systems are organised. This committment has now been ratified by the Ecoride organization *.


Sup Surf Windsurf Kayak Sailing Boat Every BIC Sport manufactured board has been conceived by an expert shaper and made in France using production systems that faithfully reproduce perfect copies of the original prototypes. The unique construction and materials guarantee you many years of reliable, high performance service. Today, BIC Sport is acknowleged as the pioneer of mass-production surf boards in the highly demanding surfer market ; but it’s also one of the European leaders in the Sit-on-Top kayak market thanks to its range of innovative products that have won them numerous design awards. On the competition scene, BIC Sport created a brand new concept in junior windsurfing with the BIC Techno 293 One Design board, which has now become the officially recognised race board for Under 17 riders worldwide. This monotype/formula race class has grown at an incredible rate in over 30 countries already. Now BIC Sport has re-created the same energy with its junior race dinghy, the truly innovative O’pen BIC, which has totally remotivated the world of junior sailing. Latest into the board sports roster, Stand Up Paddle, is currently an area of specially dynamic development. It’s a sport that’s growing at a phenomenal rate, one that represents more than ever the values of simplicity and accessibility that have made the BIC brand such a long-standing success.

Sustainable development: a major priority for BIC Sport

BIC Sport has been manufacturing watersport products for over 30 years. Long before there was any awareness of environmental issues, it was keen to use a « clean » manufacturing process whereby materials could be recycled, and the production process did not involve gas emissions. From start to end of life-cycle, BIC Sport products are environmentally-friendly.

Eco-Design and Environmental Awareness Low energy consumption

No pollution

• Short production cycle • Short infra-red heating cycle • Low electricity consumption

• Closed circuit cooling of the moulds • No gas emissions • No solvents

Few resources used

100% recyclable

• Rejection rate < 2,5 / 1000 • Surplus material systematically recycled back into the production process • A capacity per mould 5 times greater than standard techniques

• The O’pen BIC, the kayaks and the dinghies are boats that can be entirely recycled at the end of their life-cycle. They can be crushed and recycled for other usage.

Ecoride recognition Developed by EuroSIMA Cluster in collaboration with the ADEME, Ecoride is a tool which provides the ability to measure and determine environmental efforts of companies within the boardsports industry. BIC Sport got this recognition thanks to its implementation of an environmental management system for the entire company.

Awards • O’pen BIC : « Bateau Bleu » prize awarded by the Fédération des Industries Nautiques in 2007. • Kayaks : Several « Etoiles du Design » between 2002 and 2010, with particular emphasis on their environmentally-friendly concept.

ThE mAChINERy

DEVELOPED & PRODUCED IN FRANCE

BIC Sport is the proud owner of an industrial tool that is unique in the world, capable of three different manufacturing techniques : thermoforming, thermoforming around a polystyrene core, and blow moulding/blown extrusion. BIC Sport is the only manufacturer in the world to have these three manufacturing techniques available on one production site. This enables us to produce six different product types.

Hollow Twin-Sheet thermoforming The principle : two slabs (deck and hull) are heat-moulded in an aluminium mould then pressurefused together. The whole thing is then cooled and taken for finishing in the workshops. Products using this technique : kayaks, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;pen BIC, tenders and dinghies

Thermoforming around a polystyrene core The principle : a polystyrene blank is covered with fibreglass layers which is then impregnated with resin before being moved to a mould containing two prepared thermomoulded ASA finishing sheets. The mould is pressure-sealed, then cooled, the finished product extracted and sent for finishing. Products using this technique : CTS windsurf boards, E-Comp surf boards, ACE-TEC SUP boards.

Blow moulding/Blown extrusion The principle : a tube of extruded (molten) polyethylene is gravity-moulded and then shaped by being blown against the inner walls of its hollow mould. Next itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooled, taken out of the mould and moved to a steel shaper where it is expansion-filled with high density polyurethane foam. Products using this technique : Beach windsurf boards, ACS surf boards, DURA-TEC SUP boards.

Gérard Dabbadie

The pioneer Hardcore surfer since 1969, Gérard Dabbadie shaped his first ever board in 1973. Since then more than 10,000 boards have been born from his hands... A serial French Champion, 1975 European Champion, Gerard has been custom shaping for some of Europe’s top surfers for years under his brand name Superfrog. In 1993 BIC Sport got involved in surf boards and called in Gerard to help them deliver the first ever mass-production board in the history of surfing : the 7’9 Natural Surf, which was an instant hit and helped create the BIC legend. The adventure went on, with the release of new «Dabbadie» signature shortboards and longboards. All manufactured in their tens of thousands and all worldwide successes. For the last few years Gerard has also been BIC Surf’s commercial director in France, helping him keep his close ties to the surf scene that has always driven him.

The expertise With over 20 years of experience in the Action Sports and Paddlesports Industries Jimmy has done it all: brand manager, marketing director, product developer, US National Champion kayaker, coach/instructor and brand ambassador. When SUP began to appear in America, Jimmy was quickly hooked and put his knowledge and experience into the development of the sport. Currently BIC Sport’s SUP product and marketing manager, he works in close collaboration with shaper Patrice Remoiville on the direction and development of new boards, paddles and product refinements. An ACA-certified instructor and instructor trainer, he’s heavily involved in the direction and evolution of SUP, and his rigorous approach to all aspects of the sport is a real plus for both the product development and promotion of BIC SUP.

Big passion, big talent

Eric Terrien

Eric is a board sports fanatic. Son of windsurfing parents, he got into watersports during his childhood. Starting with sailing, he moved onto all sorts of boarding (bodyboard, surf and windsurf) during the early 90s while living on Reunion in the Indian Ocean. As the 90s became the noughties he set up home for himself in the Canary Islands to live out his windsurf dream. It was a little later, in Australia, that he discovered SUP... «I spent two years on the Australian west coast, where I first saw a SUP in the waves. In 2007 I visited Hawaii and saw how the sport was really taking off. Back in Perth I got myself straight onto a huge 12’ SUP. By the time I got back to Europe the following year I was totally hooked !». Eric won the first competition he ever entered, at Las Palmas in the Canaries in 2009, but it was in Hamburg in June that year that he caused a sensation by finishing 2nd at the Jever SUP World Cup, just behind Ekolu Kalama, the big man of that particular moment. That proved to be the start of a top level SUP career that has seen him dominate the sport in Europe since. Eric is currently ranked in the world top 5.


The experience Patrice has the strength of vision and purpose needed to head up the development of SUP boards at BIC Sport. A graduate of the French Atlantic school, this board fanatic has more than 25 years of shaping, composite materials and polyurethane foam-work experience to draw on. He’s BIC SUP’s commercial director for France, spreading the word on the competition and promo tours, giving him access to direct feedback from riders of all skill levels. He’s currently based at our new research and development centre in Vannes, Brittany. This is where he works in close collaboration with riders Eric Terrien and David Latastere, and our man in America, Jimmy Blakeney, on all our new boards and accessories.

Patrice Remoiville

Peter Pan

The icon Peter Pan got his nickname at a surf contest in the 60s when the announcer couldn’t pronounce his full last name, Panagiotis. Today «Pan» is a surf legend of the eastern coast of the USA with more than 40 years of round the clock surfing under his belt and induction into the Surfing Hall of Fame in 1996. A versatile waterman, Peter has directed numerous surfing competitions and holds countless shortboarding, longboarding, bodyboarding and kneeboarding titles. His motto: “Function over fashion”. He likes to compare his surfboards to the original Volkswagen Beetles. They are designed to be an easy ride for a low price, so everyone can get around. Pete is a colourful character and one of surfing’s greats, he’s been an integral part of the BIC Sport Research and Design Team for more than a decade.

Cross over generation Carine Camboulives and Manu Bouvet have both been part of the BIC Sport team for several years. Their shared passion for windsurfing led them to set up home on the island of Maui, the board sports mecca, nearly 20 years ago. Into windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing and Stand Up, Carine and Manu are living their dream, and as a couple have become a symbol of the multi-sport «crossover» scene. They’ve used their board sports as a pretext for a series of extended foreign trips, looking for as-yet undiscovered board sport destinations. Their photos and articles covering their travels are in all the media. Their vast experience in board sports is invaluable to the BIC brand.

In addition to the best-selling 9’6, 10’6 and 11’6 all-around models, two new boards now round out the ACE-TEC range, the 12’6 & 11’ WINGs, which are the result of serious development work by our international team of riders, most notably Eric Terrien. With a hull design that is stable, smooth and efficient, the WING models are ideally suited for general touring, longer outings and fitness sessions. There are also three specialty boards for added versatility; a 10’6 WIND windsurf model with deck mast-track, an 11’6 WIND windsurf model with mast-track and retractable daggerboard, as well as the 10’6 FIT-SUP (Fitness-SUP) with a full-length deck pad and deck attachment points. • DURA-TEC, as the name implies, features BIC’s legendary durability in an exclusive, nearly indestructible construction technology. DURA-TEC boards, available in 9’4, 10’4 and 11’4, are user-friendly with solid performance at a budget-friendly price. They are ideal for families, clubs, schools and novices looking for value and low-maintenance, stress-free performance. • With its eye-catching Clear-Epoxy construction, the new C-TEC range combines a classic aesthetic with the solid strength

C-TEC

BIC Sport thermoformed construction, fine-tuned for performance Stand Up Paddling. These boards are made from a molded, low-density polystyrene core wrapped in fiberglass and epoxy resin with a durable, UV resistant ASA polymer skin for added protection. This unique technology produces stiff, lightweight, high-performance boards with proven durability and exact shapes. If you’re looking for a premium board without the premium price, ACE-TEC delivers.

DURA-TEC technology features a molded polyethylene shell (similar to the shell of our rugged kayaks but lighter weight) injected with polyurethane surfboard foam for authentic boardsport performance. This exclusive BIC Sport technology allows your new Stand Up Paddleboard to survive knocks and bumps that would see a fibreglass board out of the water requiring repairs.

C-TEC (Custom-Technology) SUPs are constructed with a light polystyrene core wrapped in several fiberglass layers with clear epoxy resin and finished with a full bamboo reinforced deck for added beauty and durability. C-TEC boards deliver proven shapes with advanced epoxy construction for optimized performance.

(*ACE-TEC = Advanced Composite Engineered-Thermoformed Epoxy Construction)

C-TEC

Pure! The C-TEC range comprises a selection of the best boards shaped by two of the big names in the business, to satisfy even the most demanding of riders. Peter Hosking (Australia) is the name on the Classic, designed for mixed flat and wave riding, and Patrice Remoiville is responsible for the new Wave Pro, a wave board designed in collaboration with our rider David Latastere. Both ranges are made using C-TEC, a very aesthetic and super strong clear epoxy constuction including a bamboo-reinforced deck.

Classic Series - Wood

Wave Pro

The BIC Classic shapes are an industry leading icon thanks to their authentic longboard design with the perfect balance of flat-water glide and wave riding performance. The 2013 models keep the best of the original shapes with design tweaks to improve performance and stability for a wider range of users. All Classics feature a full Bamboo deck for added strength as well as beauty. Ideally sized for the athletic beginner or riders ‘moving up’ to their first performance oriented SUP board. Premium deck pad, carry handle and FCS fin included.

The new Wave Pro series was built from the ground up for maximum surf performance without sacrificing user-friendly accessibility. A unique chine, bottom contour and rocker profile combined with a pulled in tail and 5-fin configuration delivers maximum speed and manoeuvrability off the tail. Dial in the size that’s right for you and you’ll have a one-board quiver. Designed and tested in the European surf capital of Hossegor, France with BIC SUP pro rider ‘Davos’and input from the international team of SUP riders. Shaped by Patrice Remoiville. Comes standard with carry handle, 5 fin-box set-up, FCS Kai Sallas performance thruster set. Deck pad not included to allow for custom grip set-up and minimal weight.

RACE-TEC

Eric Terrien's replicas

Directly modelled on the winning shapes used by our international rider Eric Terrien, the Race Pro boards are no-concession boards for expert level riders, but which will be of huge interest to the intermediate level paddler too. Designed for maximum speed and control by our shaper Patrice Remoiville, they’re manufactured in RACE-TEC, a composite construction that is ultra light weight and ultra rigid. Proven winners on the competition podiums, and for sheer paddling pleasure.

RACE-PRO 12’6’’

RACE-PRO 14’0’’

If you’re looking to be competitive in the 12’6 ‘stock’ class, the Race-Tec 12’6 will put you in contention. This board is a result of multiple versions of Eric Terrien’s winning 12’6 boards, blending the best characteristics into a single platform that features speed without the quirkiness that can go along with narrower race designs. Designed to excel in a variety of conditions from calm flatwater venues to challenging and choppy open ocean courses.

14’ers are fast, and fun to paddle, especially for longer distance race courses, or long-distance adventures. The Race-Tec 14’ features a unique hull design that reduces drag and maximizes speed. Low entry-rocker increases efficiency and moderate tail-rocker allows for control, manoeuvrability and glide when catching bumps. A water-shedding deck keeps the nose up and out of chop. Designed by Patrice Remoiville along with pro rider Eric Terrien.

DEVELOPED & PRODUCED IN FRANCE

When BIC Sport launched the first mass-produced surf boards at the beginning of the 90s, they opened the door to tens of thousands of new surfers by offering quality boards at reasonable prices. To maintain the BIC Sport quality guarantee for its surf boards, top class board shapers are used to bring those boards to readiness for the mass market. The boards are then faithfully reproduced in their thousands using its special production tool/ manufacturing facility, based in France and unique in the world. The thermoformed ACS and E-Comp boards are made in aluminium moulds, giving 100% accurate reproduction of the final shape for every single board rolling off our production line. The 2013 BIC Surf collection is wide without being over-elaborate, and simple enough to meet the needs of riders of all skill levels : from the pro rider looking for high performance, reliablilty and light weight, to the beginner looking for stability, easy paddling and all-round strength.


SURFING!

ACS | E-Comp | SuperFrog | G-Boards The ACS boards are still super stable with, for example, the Hype range now incorporating a brand new tail pad design. As light weight and sturdy as ever, the E-Comp board series is enlarged this year with the introduction of a new beginner board, the 9’6, a fantastically versatile 4x4 longboard that is easy to ride and incredibly light under the feet for a board with such big volume. Completely re-looked and re-newed in 2012, the Superfrog series keeps its place as BIC Surf’s top of the range brand, with its classy «clear epoxy» finish. A superb range of boards chosen by master shaper Gerard Dabbadie for all intermediate to expert level riders. With nearly 30 years experience, BIC Sport is the biggest single-brand manufacturer in the world. And our mission statement «Respect the past, invent the future» has never been truer.

Quality boards at a reasonable price When you learn to surf, there are three key elements that help you enjoy the experience of those first waves : 1. A shape well-adapted to beginners for easy progression 2. A strong, hard-wearing board that won’t be easily damaged 3. A quality board at a reasonable price Our ACS board range gives beginner and intermediate surfers the advantage of a tough, easy board at a budget price.

5’10’’ Fish

6’7’’ Shortboard

7’3’’ Mini Malibu

Dynamic performance!

Up your surfing performance with the 6’7’’ Shortboard!

No wonder this is the world’s single best selling surfboard!

Looking for a board that will accelerate through cut-backs, off-the-lip and midface manoeuvres? You’ll be stoked with the new heights that this performance driven, durable, shortboard will take you to. Intermediate surfers agree it’s the perfect first shortboard, advanced surfers will find this a reliable board across a wide range of wave sizes and conditions. Smaller kids will love the 6’7” as it offers plenty of board to get them going as its standard shortboard dimensions have been slightly increased to cater to more of a beginner/ intermediate market.

The Mini-Malibu is the perfect all rounder. A fabulous entry-level board for new surfers, it features a refined combination of stability for ease of paddling and enough performance to make it a fun board for the more advanced surfer. Versatile and a joy to ride, the Mini-Malibu surfboard will take you from your first ever surfing experience through to gliding down the unbroken wave face or ripping up the lip! Durable enough to survive learn-to-surf wipeouts that leave other boards on the beach, this low-cost board will bring you hours of fun in a great range of wave conditions.

The versatile Pocket Rocket is renowned as the ideal first surfboard for grommets as much as it is regarded as an excellent small-wave board for accomplished surfers of approximately 45-70kg. Truly reflecting its name, the Pocket Rocket is a dynamo that offers the stability and buoyancy of a longboard with the manoeuvrability of a shortboard packing a lot of volume into its short length. The secret is its short, fat design that incorporates a wide nose and tail, allowing the Pocket Rocket to catch waves early for a board of its size. While suitable for small children just starting out, it nonetheless packs a punch when ridden by a more experienced surfer.

ACS Hype & Wahine

The Hype and Wahine series ACS construction surfboards now come with re-designed factory-fixed tail pads. They help with improved rear foot grip and pressure during your moves, giving you even better board control.

Light & durable Easy to ride 7’9’’ Natural Surf 2

8’4’’ Magnum

9’4’’ Super Magnum

An updated design of an old favourite!

Learning to surf as an adult

For everyone to surf on !

Built to give performance to bigger surfers, the Magnum’s exceptional volume makes it easy to paddle and catch waves, no matter your size or ability. Offering its riders a fast learning curve, its mid-range length keeps it loose and fun in a wide range of surf conditions. Intermediate surfers will gain confidence and progress quickly by catching heaps of waves and easily turning this board through the faster sections of any break. This durable, ACS built, 8’4” Magnum surfboard will fuel your surfing addiction!

The new 9’4’’ Super Magnum follows in the footsteps of the celebrated 8’4’’ with a very clear aim : guarantee easy access to the surf experience for any size of rider. An even easier ride than the 8’4’’, its big and well distributed volume makes surfing your first waves simple for all levels of rider ! Paddling, take-off and surfing become childplay ! The 9’4’’ Super Magnum’s big volume doesn’t inhibit in any way its superb agility and speed through the tightest of carve turns, making it a great board for fast progression for beginner surfers. The 9’4’’ Super Magnum’s superstrong ACS construction opens up the surf experience to anyone who cares to try.

Perhaps the most versatile of the ACS range, The Easy Rider is everything its name promises - an excellent combination of longboard stability and manoeuvrability, with just enough length to make it easy to control. Its user-friendly design provides ample flotation to catch all types of waves while the performance shape enables ‘down-the-line’ fun for first timers to advanced surfers. The Natural Surf 2 gives lightweights and smaller surfers an easy to carry, durable and stable “big-board” feel for starting out. However, heavier or bigger surfers will enjoy the mid-range length and proven performance for their transition to shorter boards and bigger surf conditions. Our original 7’9” Natural Surf gained a reputation for versatility, long-lasting and affordable surfboard – so we added subtle changes such as a nose-protector.

ACS Padded For beginners and surf clubs

The ACS PAD series takes all the benefits of the ACS’ s great shapes with unbeatable durability and couples it with a Segmented EVA deck pad. Meaning there is now no need for wax, ensuring the board stays clean for longer while providing unbeatable traction and a great indicator of where to stand on the board. A great option for surf schools and any surfer that wants to spend more time surfing and less time waxing.

E-Comp

Light weight stiff boards BIC Sport’s E-Comp (Epoxy Composite) construction technique produces a board that is approximately 30% more durable while being almost identical with regard to stiffness and weight when compared to a similar polyester constructed surfboard. To accommodate the needs of more advanced surfers, E-Comp surfboards provide shapes that not only suit the intermediate surfer, but also experienced riders who know how to ride a surfboard.

7’9’’ Performer

9’0’’ Longboard

9’4’’ Nose Rider

Performance perfection!

A longboard with no limits!

A legendary longboard

Combining that elusive blend of versatility and performance with unbeatable durability, the 7’6” Performer lives up to its name! Possessing the stability and ease of a longboard with integral design elements of a quick-turning shortboard, the Performer offers you the chance to pump up your surfing technique while decreasing your board length. Able to embrace a wide range of wave conditions, it offers heaps of fun and a versatile ride through its tested, refined and proven shape. Constructed via BIC Surf’s E-Comp Technology, a light weight EPS foam core layered with epoxy resins and fibreglass is thermoformed with an epoxy-hybrid outer shell.

Handling both small waves and pumping swell with style, the Classic Longboard offers both beginners and seasoned noseriders a ride with endless possibilities! No matter if you are looking to hang five, get tubed or perform a roundhouse cutback, the Classic Longboard is with you all the way. Effortlessly bringing together modern technology with old-school style, our 9’0” will satisfy surfers of all levels. Beginners will appreciate its volume and a forgiving outline, while advanced wave walkers will be impressed with the way it handles pumped up swell and rides sweetly through the high-line into and out of radical sections. Built with the durable E-Comp construction, the Classic Longboard will last you many years and through thousands of great surfs!

Designed by the legendary shaper Darrell «Rooster» Dell, this 9’4’’ is the preferred longboard of many intermediate and experienced surfers who want a longboard that combines superb design, smooth wave entry and speed with exceptional manoeuvrability. Darrell’s 9’4’’ design is lightly concaved with conventional rocker through the nose, which then flows into a flattened area. From there it moves into a rolled V, pronounced under foot to provide easy rail to rail transitions. Managing to deftly combine the delicate combination of those two critical design factors ensures that the board is the ultimate in versatile surfing, with all the characteristics of regular construction with regard to weight and stiffness, and the sturdiness of E-Comp Technology.

The 9’6 E-Comp Big Boy is a big volume longboard designed for big boy (and girl !) surfers. With an easy pick up and take off, you can surf the waves with ease thanks to its feather weight, The 4x4 Longboard even noseriding the seemingly smallest waves. This light but super-strong board is a great option for beginners looking for long term value : you can learn all the surf basics on this, the easiest (along with the 9’ ACS) in our surfboard range, then use it ever after as a 4x4 longboard. Top surf fun always available.

The French touch! Designed by top class shapers, they’re made with a new light weight Epoxy/fibreglass laminated polystyrene core. This technique differs from the more traditional polyester/fibreglass around a polyurethane core by being lighter and having vastly superior mechanical qualities, delivering a much better feel on the water.

Egg / Fish

Hydro Fish

Longboard

2 x EGG boards and a FISH make up the short board part of the Superfrog range. The EGGS are designed for surfing in the smallest waves. Their relatively thick profile and comfortable width make them ideal for bigger and more experienced surfers and also great fun for intermediate/lighter weight riders in any kind of conditions. 5’8’’ Egg : short and wide, the 5’8’’ Egg has been shaped to let you surf even the smallest waves. Going hard in soft surf is exactly what it likes ! 6’2’’ Egg : this board is designed for riders looking for great fun and good progression. Its shape gives it excellent glide allowing you to surf in your natural style without forcing. 6’0’’ Fish : A classic shape that has endured since the 70s, this is also the must-have weapon. For light surf and for surfers who don’t want to move on to a Mini-Malibu or Longboard. Can be configured for tri-fin (thruster) or old-school twinzer fin set-up.

Four Peter Hosking signature shapes make up this range that combines versatility with performance. From 6’0’’ to 7’0’’ (for each size of rider a board to suit !), the Hydro Fish are for riders looking for a board that’s shorter than a longboard or mini-mal, without dropping down to a shortboard. The Hydro Fish have enough volume for an easy take-off, good manoeuvrability and board speed. They’re fitted with FCS Thruster M5 fins, and come with two extra fin plugs for a quad configuration.

The completely new Superfrog longboard series is a cocktail of traditional shapes and more modern ideas. They have all been shaped by Gérard Dabbadie. The 8’2’’ is a compact, versatile, high performance board that combines tradition and modern thinking, with its swallow tail and subtle wingers. In the same spirit, the 9’ has a more classic overall style combined with some more modern touches that give the board excellent glide and you an easy ride. The 9’2’’ sits squarely in the longboard tradition, its classic lines giving you a «pure longboard» ride including knee-drop turns and other noseriding moves.

g-Boards

Soft boards for safe start To meet the needs of the surf club and school sectors, we’ve conceived the G-Boards, a range of foam construction boards with a very clearly defined performance specification chart : easy-riding G-Boards with the kind of performance to make complete beginners feel totally safe. They deliver fun and excitement right from the start, giving a high level of solidity, made of materials chosen specifically for their resistance to bumps and knocks, with the all-round strength to take it all in their stride. The G-Boards range has been assembled by top board shapers and is manufactured from the highest quality materials : The core of the board is made from a slab of closed-cell, fully watertight foam. A stringer gives the board good stiffness along its length, and the «Slick Skin» polyethylene skin gives excellent glide, cushioning bumps and offering impressive knock-resistance. The cushioned EVA foam anti-slip deck pad gives superb comfort under your feet. The flexible, series-mounted fins are super-efficient and give excellent stability. The G-Boards range is divided into two categories :

G-Boards Classic

G-Boards Original

The G-Boards Classic (red) have been designed for complete beginners who want to buy their first foam board at the right kind of price. The quality and knock-resistance of the materials used gives beginner surfers the confidence to start surfing in total safety without risk of injury to themselves or damage to their board. Sizes : 5’6’’ Kid, 6’6’’, 7’0’’, 7’6’’, 8’0’’

The G-Boards Original (blue) are essentially the «original» G-Boards whose strength and reliability have become the stuff of legend. Also designed by top board shapers, they are easy to ride, super-safe, and made of materials chosen for their exceptional durability. Hyper UV and knockresistant, they’re the ideal board for surf schools and surf rentals with intensive usage. Sizes : 8’0’’, 8’6’’, 9’0’’

DEVELOPED & PRODUCED IN FRANCE

Since the year 2000, excessive elitism has led to an ever-accelerating race towards newer, better models made almost without exception in factories in Asia. In the face of this trend, BIC Sport chose to go a somewhat different route, with a French-based production, the selection of models on offer and investment in the competition circuit. Manufacturing base. BIC Sport is the only manufacturer producing windsurf boards in France, a situation that allows us to exploit an industrial system that is in itself high performance, but also unique in the world. It also enables us to respond quickly to new trends in some of the most important and biggest world markets. 2013 product range. Our individual designs are well defined and limited in number to help make it easier to choose the best board for you. The 2013 Windsurf range comprises 5 different clearly indentified models : • The Techno range is aimed at riders seeking a high performance freeride/funboard with quality fittings, responsive but also easy to ride. • More innovative is the Nova range, lighter weight boards incorporating a full integral deck pad. This is a design aimed at windsurf schools and at beginners who want a board that will help them learn the basics fast, but also help them progress rapidly. • The Core 293 D and 160 D, are designed to make windsurf and funboard as simple as possible for everyone. Inexpensive, easy to ride, they are fitted with a daggerboard for extra stability.


WINDSURFING!

T293 OD | Core | Techno | Nova | Beach | SUP Wind • The Beach series combine the exceptional durable strength of polyethylene construction, quality modern design and unbeatable price to deliver a board that will suit both windsurf schools and families simply looking to get out and have affordable fun on the water. • SUP is the latest arrival in the BIC Windsurf range. The two brand new SUP Wind designs provide a superb missing link between windsurfing and the brand new sport of SUP that has set the board sports market alight in the last couple of years. The 10’6 and 11’6 SUP WIND boards are super-versatile, enabling you to do both sports with just one board, on the flat or in small waves. Competition scene. BIC Sport has also invested itself heavily in this important area. After winning several World Championship titles at the beginning of the 2000s, BIC Sport started looking increasingly at monotype racing as the way forward, and developed the Techno 293 One Design as a monotype board for junior international racers. Today, Techno 293 OD is THE most dynamic windsurf class in the world, with the recent World Championships attracting 350 young racers from 26 different countries spanning 5 continents. The T293 OD Class is also now working to develop a new T293 OD+ Class that will open up this competition to older riders, with the 8.5 rig and a 50 cm fin. With a new competition format focused on planing, this promises to be a great development for the future. A truly phenomenal windsurf class. Learn, progress, race, or simply spend time on the water !

Technology BIC Sport is the only windsurf manufacturer in Europe and the only one to have mastered composite material technology, thermoformed in aluminium moulds, a technology which guarantees the exact replica of the original shapes designed by the shaper and riders. Several techniques are used and the material is optimised according to the sailing programs.

CTS / TS This technology is relevant to the CTS and TS boards, which are boards made from a low-density polystyrene core, covered by a fibreglass coat with carbon fibre reinforcements. Resin is then applied UD glass to this fibre, and the whole mix undergoes a high-pressure thermoforming procedure in one 160gr single process. That gives optimum results from the materials, reducing weight and Cellular structure + Glass fiber giving a performance equal to more expensive sandwich construction boards 50gr Polystyrene core 20 gr/l but with much better resistance to knocks than Epoxy Sandwich. ASA sheet • CTS : Stiffness, light weight and strength. Incorporates uni-directional 0.8mm carbon fibre reinforcements along the rails and under the footpad (Techno 293 One Design). • TS : Compromise weight/strength with glass fibre reinforcements at UD glass all the important points on the board 200gr (Techno / Core / Nova).

On the Beach boards, the outer skin is made out of polyethylene, the same as that used on BIC Sport kayaks with their proven strength. The internal construction is a high-density polyurethane foam with its massive knock-resistance properties. This technology means we can produce ultra-strong boards which suit perfectly the needs of windsurf schools, and that of individuals just getting started.

With decades of experience in windsurf and surfboard manufacturing BIC Sport is a pioneer of thermoformed composite construction technology. Over the past few years we’ve refined the ideal composite lay-up for SUP, with ACE-TEC as the result. Three sizes suit the needs of experienced riders and newbies alike with a unique combination of durability, light weight and performance shapes. All ACE-TEC boards come standard with the FCS fin system, a premium diamond groove EVA deck pad, ergo-grip carry handle and integrated rail guard.

T293 OD

The Techno 293 OD is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest windsurfing class Now internationally approved as THE monotype windsurf board for under 17 riders, the Techno 293 One Design has seen its production figures explode in just a few short years. Today, more than 8,000 Techno 293s are sailing somewhere in the world, inspired and supported by a competition circuit that never ceases to grow. The 2012 World Championships held recently in Medemblik, The Netherlands, brought together more than 340 competitors from 26 countries and 6 continents. The 2012 vintage is especially promising as it has shown an evening out of numbers among European countries. This shows how the class has established itself and the energy it has generated, creating in Techno 293 OD not just the biggest windsurf fleet, but one of the biggest fleets in the whole worldwide sport of sailing. If you want to compete on equal terms with high quality equipment, at a reasonable price and without getting into an arms race, the Techno 293 OD is your board ! Get all the latest info, news and competition dates at www.techno293.org

Techno 293 OD Start, progress and race What helped the Techno 293 OD become such a successful Class Racing board was its general performance and easy control. With a high volume and moderate outline, the Techno 293 OD provides a stable platform for learning to windsurf. A daggerboard provides directional stability and makes sailing upwind a breeze. In light winds, the near 3 m length helps the board really glide through the water, making windsurfing an exciting option in sub-planing conditions. Once the wind gets up, the concave hull helps boost the board onto the plane making for great funboard sailing. Its lightweight and solid construction ensure that performance and durability remain even after intensive use. Competition aside, the Techno 293 OD is ideal for learning and leisure funboarding. This versatility enables clubs to reduce their overheads and equipment costs by having just one board model from learning right through to racing. With high quality fittings it really is a reliable, high performance board, comfortable in all water conditions.

Learn to windsurf with a taste of funboard action

The new Nova 205D is geared towards heavierweight riders or for schools who want stable, light, big volume boards, and fitted with a retractable daggerboard. This board is also great for progressing on, thanks to its relatively moderate length, its reduced weight and forward footstrap positions. The Nova 205D is fitted with an integral pad for a totally anti-skid surface which also helps protect the rider in case of falls. There’s no better board to learn how to windsurf!

More for the lighter-weight riders, the Nova 160D is designed for learning and progressing. Stable and easy to ride, fitted with a daggerboard, its short shape makes it simple to carve and jibe, even in light winds. With a good volume all around the board, any wrong foot position won’t be noticed. It is a light board that gets fast up to planing, and thanks to its short length, it will give exciting funboard sensations. Very fast in light to medium winds, this is a board on which you can progress quickly when riding in footstraps and when jibing. Excellent board that will suit beginners as well as funboard enthusiasts alike. Powered by FCS

bEach

Easy riding boards, super strong and a superb price The Beach boards have been designed with sailing schools in mind, to offer them strong, practical and modern equipment. They are made using the technology already applied to BIC Sport kayaks and surfboards: the outer skin is in polyethylene, the same as that of BIC Sport kayaks, whose solidity is well-known, and the core of the boards is made of the same high-density polyurethane foam that is also inside the BIC ACS surfboards. Both Beach boards offer particularly good stability as well as being easy to handle, so that beginners can start to learn various moves. A new EVA foam pad, very hard-wearing, comfortable and anti-skid covers the deck. Both boards come with a retractable daggerboard that is solid and easy to handle.

The right balance : stable and fun

The Beach 225D has the most volume, making it specially ideal for heavier riders looking for a very stable board to learn on. It is fitted with a retractable daggerboard and with carry handles at the front, side and rear, which help to carry the board in and out of the water and are very useful for handling it in the water during the learning sessions. It is a very solid board, and with its particular volume and its EVA-foam pad covered deck, it is particularly apt for both sailing schools and windsurf-enthusiast families on their holidays.

The Beach 175D is a more compact board, and is suited to lighter-weight beginners. It glides well in light winds while maintaining good manoeuvrability. It is fitted with a retractable daggerboard and with carry handles at the front, side and rear, which help to carry the board in and out of the water and are very useful for handling it in the water during the learning sessions. It is a very solid board, and with its particular volume and its EVA-foam pad covered deck, it is particularly apt for both sailing schools and windsurf-enthusiast families on their holidays.

DEVELOPED & PRODUCED IN FRANCE

Since releasing its first ever kayak at the beginning of the 2000s, BIC Sport has always paid close attention to the details of design, manufacture quality, equipment and fittings on its kayaks to deliver maximum fun. From the easy-access Sit-On-Tops to the higher performance Sit-Ins, and including the light weight and easy to transport inflatables, our 2013 collection has something for all tastes : kayaks that are well-designed, stable and practical and that will quickly become the centre of all your holiday activities. Manufactured in France, BIC sport kayaks are also ecologically sound, using energy-efficient and non-polluting production techniques, recyclying all our off-cuts back into the manufacture, to deliver a kayak that is recyclable at the end of its life. For 2013, the collection has been restructured to help clarify things. Each range has been named in relation to the type of kayaking it offers. So, « Beach », « Sport », « Performance », and « leisure »… will help guide you to choose the exactly right kayak.


PADDLING!

Sit-On-Top | Sit-In | Inflatable | Fishing As for new models, the rigid Sit-On-Top range is enlarged with the arrival of two new 4 metre+ boats : the more versatile Java and Borneo, complementing perfectly the celebrated Bilbao and Tobago. They incorporate a number of innovative design features and are as easy to handle on land as they are out on the water. They’re also available as «Fishing» models, specially adapted for all your angling needs. Already offering some great options, our Inflatable range grows even more with the addition of a brand new model, the Nomad HP 1, a single-seater high pressure design. It comes with all the technical savvy that helped make the two-seater Nomad such a big success when launched last year. And there’s a full range of accessories and paddles available to help ensure you get the very best out of your kayak every time you set sail. Wishing you some great on the wateraction and fun !

Design

Creative designs Innovative products Gliding sensations THD - Tri Hull Design : designed for fun The unique THD shape provides the optimum in speed, comfort and stability for BIC Sport Kayaks. The result of 30 years of BIC Sport watercraft design and innovation, the THD shape has been developed to provide improved gliding and stability while maintaining maneuverability. Inspired from current tri-maran designs, the THD shape features a central section (1) for increased gliding, two outside hull sections (2) to stabilize the kayak and two intermediate concaves (3) to create lift and an optimal mix of water and air for heightened performance. These designs have also been picked up on by the Observeur du Design, which has awarded BIC Sport numerous prestigious "Etoiles du Design". These Etoiles were in recognition not only of the kayak design, but also of BIC Sport's TST construction technology that is environmentally friendly.

Ergonomics

YAKKAir and Nomad: tomorrow's inflatables The choice of materials and the design of the YAKKAir and the Nomad have been the subject of an enormous amount of research, resulting in kayaks that are light weight, good looking and deliver great performance. The dynamic, double-concave hull gives the kind of handling you’d normally expect from a rigid. A revolution in inflatable kayak design. An award has actually been granted to this concept end of 2009 with our YAKKAir HP 1 having been rewarded with an Etoile du Design.

The seat ergonomics of the whole BIC Sport kayak range have been particularly developed for optimum paddling comfort. • The seat is roomy and comfortable, and is also inclined and padded to keep the paddler in place, and relieve leg pressure while using the foot braces. • The centre of gravity is positioned low for better stability, but above the flotation line so that the bottom of the seat stays dry. An optional seat is available as an accessory to optimize comfort. • The comfortable paddling position of the YAKKAir HP and Nomad kayaks gets similar attention to detail, with a dry paddling position on a rigid base, fully fitted backrest and foot stretchers that gives paddlers unrivalled comfort for an inflatable.

Equipment

Functional equipment Durable construction BIC Sport kayaks are particularly well equipped with practical and quality accessories: abrasion protectors, mesh, mooring straps, carry handles, and watertight hatches on the "Fishing" kayaks. These details make for comfortable kayaking and contribute to your kayak's durability. 1- Foam pads on the seats = better paddling comfort 2- Rubber-coated or Integrated front and rear carry handles = protection from dings and scratches and easy launching. 3- Abrasion protectors front and rear = 6 for greater protection + easy launching. 4- Safety lines = for easy re-entry into kayak. 2 5- Elasticised straps = for secure carrying of equipment and easy accessibility. 6- Transport net = stores your equipment within easy reach.

TST - Twin Sheet Technology : exclusive construction technique Twin sheet Technology creates a product that is lighter and stronger than rotomoulded products. These qualities, coupled with our UV resistant polyethylene, give BIC Sport kayaks exceptional durability. Durable and rigid: With 30 years experience in the design and manufacturing of water sports equipment, BIC Sport has used its vast knowledge to make BIC Sport Kayaks fast, comfortable and stable. The hulls of all BIC Sport kayaks have clean fluid lines despite their compact size. These characteristics give the kayaks excellent gliding and stability qualities.

BIC Kayaks | Sit-On-Top |

BEach

Sit-On-Top for everyone Stable, designed to be simple and affordable, the BEACH series kayaks are the gateway kayaks for our Sit-On-Top range, the easiest way to get out and have fun on the water while you’re at the beach. They are made to BIC Sport’s usual high standards, and their deck and cockpit design make them easy to use and very well suited to family and group activities. The Trinidad and Kalao models can be fitted with a small motor.

Ouassou*

Trinidad*

Kalao*

The fun kayak

Duo compact

The family kayak

The Ouassou is designed as a versatile and manoeuvrabile kayak ideal for beach fun. The stern handles let you hang on and swim and allow easy access on board. The Ouassou also handles surf and waves comfortably. The ‘spatula’ shaped hull is derived from surf longboards and rodeo kayaks. The slight keel and lateral rail design provide directional stability and excellent tracking. The Ouassou’s optional knee-strap system also allows you to secure your body to the cockpit when you are looking for greater control in waves or whitewater. In the 2013 version, the Ouassou has three inserts on its hull. These inserts are to enable a set of soft Thruster fins to be fitted, which will improve its performance in waves. This set of fins will be available as a separate accessory. Its compact form and light weight make this a kayak that is easy to manoeuver, transport and store.

The Trinidad is a kayak purpose-built for leisure : compact, capable of taking two adults and a child on board, it’s highly versatile and stable making it suitable for all kinds of situations. For family outings, the ergonomic seats and stability are very reassuring for when you are far from the beach. And for serious paddling and exploring, solo or two-up, its very low-draught, hull design and wide rear storage area are really useful for getting where you want, wherever that is, for going further, faster. As a final bonus, the Trinidad can be fitted with a small electric motor to give it even more possibilities.

The Kalao is quite the 4x4 of the kayak world. Equally at ease on the sea, rivers or for fun, it really is the kayak for all adventures. Like all BIC Sport kayaks it features plenty of innovations. The fluid, stable hull design makes it simple for a family of two adults and two children to all ride together in complete comfort. That makes it the first true 3 (adult) person Sit-On-Top on the market, with 3 proper ergonomic seats. Essentially, the Kalao combines capacity of the old style family canoe, with the safety of a Sit-On-Top kayak! The other big first : it can be adapted to take an electric motor. The largely flat hull design with very little water draught is extremely stable and allows the kayak to go almost anywhere. Such aspects as storing your belongings while kayaking, as well as carrying and transporting your kayak have all also received detailed attention. One other important point : it’s unsinkable.

Whether you’re paddling for sport, exploring, diving or having a quick paddle with the kids, the quality of its design makes all activities possible with comfort and ease. The fluid hull shape provides a nice smooth ride, while the deck shape and quality extras allow you to carry almost any load with optimum stability and guaranteed safety. Its size and reduced weight make it easy to stow and transport.

The new Santiago fits the gap between the Bilbao and the Tobago. Very stable, with excellent glide and high manoeuvrability even at low speed, it’s a very versatile kayak for lakes and open sea, and is aimed at people looking for easy paddling but high performance option. The standard production fittings are perfectly adapted to serious use : an adjustable seat, big adjustable footrests, giving you a high-comfort paddle position. The dry box, front storage locker and wide rear platform mean you can carry everything you need for all your excursions.

The Tobago is the perfect kayak for all the family and all uses. Its ergonomic seating positions and well researched design provide for several possibilities of use: 2-adult paddling, with 1 or 2 children... The central seat, in the shape of a motorbike seat, is very practical for kids. There is also space for a bag or container when out on an excursion. The fluid hull lines mean it’s also well suited to sport kayaking, with the additional crew of your choice, all with maximum comfort and safety. The Tobago comes with a wheel at the rear, for easy transport in car parks, bow protection and elastic straps to secure your equipment. EVA foam pads cover the seats. The Tobago is a fast, stable and comfortable sea kayak.

PERFORmANCE

Further, faster Much longer than our other boats, the three models in the PERFORMANCE series are aimed at a more sporty market, offering a wider range of paddling styles and options, but still easy to use. Joining the Scapa, which has already more than proved itself commercially, two new models bring the range bang up to date. The Java and Borneo models arrive with a fistfull of innovations.

Java

Borneo

Scapa*

Great glide and ride comfort

100% convertible mono/duo

Fast cruising

New for 2013, the Java features above all an excellent glide/stability ratio, it’s a high performance sea-going singleseater, longer than the Bilbao to allow you to take on even more ambitious outings and trips. Combining an innovative hull and a neat design, it also gives you equally high quality features : a wide, flat rear storage area for carrying sizeable loads, integral wheels/rollers for easy transportation, plus a moulded deck insert for storing the wheels/ rollers while sailing, all conceived to help you get in and out of the water with the minimum of effort. It also includes excellent and comprehensive extra equipment enabling you to customise your boat for fishing trips and excursions.

Inspired by the legendary Tobago, a best seller for 10 years now, the new Borneo is a brand new family oriented double Sit-On-Top, with a number of innovative features, notably the possibility of solo use in equal paddling comfort to double. Its innovative shape and generous dimensions give it great glide whilst retaining reassuringly comfortable stability. It’s also got a large rear section including a big flat storage area. There’s innovation in the equipment and fittings too, like the integral wheels/ rollers for easy transportation. And there’s a moulded deck insert for storing the wheels/rollers while sailing. Clearly a future benchmark boat in its category.

With its narrow, water-cutting bow section and clean hull shape, the Scapa is a boat that is designed for speed. The look matches the feel in every way but still retains the excellent stability and added safety and comfort you expect from a BIC ‘Sit-On-Top’.With excellent speed, the Scapa is a true sport boat designed and built for fast cruising and physical conditioning. What’s more, it’s an excellent boat for learning sea kayaking. Even in difficult sea conditions, the Scapa holds its course thanks to its superb glide and reassuring stability. The molded baggage storage area behind the cockpit allows you to load up with diving tanks, as well as fishing or touring equipment.

REcrEaTIonal / SEa kayak

Easy access, top Performance The Adventure series, 100, 120 and 150, is the logical extension of the Sit-On-Top range. They enable you to move on smoothly from gentle summertime leisure paddling to more sporty and demanding kayaking with ease. Their performance and glide are superior to the classic Sit-On-Tops and their wide cockpit makes getting on and off the water very easy.

Adventure 100

Adventure 120

Adventure 150

Compact Sit-In

A great compromise

Sea kayaking for all

The Adventure 100 is an easy paddling Sit-In that’s great for lakes, rivers, lagoons and calm seas. Fast and surprisingly stable considering its compact size, it’s very easy to handle on land too and fits neatly on the roof of your car. The wide cockpit shape assures a hassle-free launch and land. The fittings include foot rests and an adjustable backrest that guarantee a comfortable paddling position. And it’s got ample storage space front and back. A versatile, compact and speedy Sit-In.

Slightly longer than the 100, the Adventure 120 Sit-In is just as easy to paddle but with a bit of extra glide and great for paddling on lakes, rivers, lagoons and calm seas. Fast and stable, it’s aimed at kayakers looking for a great compromise between extra glide and inexcessive volume. The wide cockpit shape assures a hassle-free launch and land. Adjustable foot rests and the high quality «Ergoflex Seating» seat give excellent paddle comfort. The padded knee rests add an extra and very welcome touch. The large forward storage area, plus a rear platform with integral elastic straps mean you can really load up with equipment. A fast, stable kayak with top quality fittings.

The Adventure 150 is the logical next step after our SOTs, enabling one to move on to a more physical type of kayaking, without difficulty. Its glide and performance is much better than that of a Sit-On-Top and its little skeg at the stern give it good tracking. Its wide cockpit gives good leg protection and it can be fitted with a spray skirt. Wider than more sporty types of kayaks, it allows more freedom of movement and allows one to get on and off easily without the fear of staying stuck. On the Adventure 150, it is therefore easy to get back in after capsizing, after a swim or an under-water diving session. Stable, compact, fast, it has been designed with comfortable volume, and is equipped with large hatches for storage. With the Adventure 150 you can go off on a trip with enough equipment (up to 135 Kg max load) and track fast without necessarily having had lots of practice.

RECREATIONAl

Beach sports The inflatable models in the Leisure range are designed for leisure paddling close to the beach or on lakes and rivers. Aimed at beginners and occasional paddlers, they’re stable, sturdy and light weight and are well fitted for and suited to family fun. They pack down into a carry bag but can be unpacked and inflated in minutes.

Kalyma

YAKKAir Lite 1

Family inflatable

Light weight and great fun

The Kalyma is a family fun kayak for beach, open sea and rivers. Comfortable, tough, aesthetically pleasing, stable and light, it combines an innovative shape with very practical fittings and features : removable seats that are also adjustable for leg length and fitted with storage pockets ; integral water resistant storage compartment, an integrated draining valve… The safety features include three independent inflatable sections, a removable rear fin and a guiding skeg. It can be used for 1 or 2 persons paddling in comfort. It comes with a carry bag, air pressure gauge and a repair kit.

Developed directly from the successful YAKKAir HP, the YAKKAir Lite is aimed specifically at coastal paddling close to the beach, for rivers and for other inland waters.Suitable for all skill levels, stable, strong and light weight, the YAKKAir Lite is the ideal way to get out on the water on your holidays. Folded down into its tough storage bag, it’s simple to transport either on foot or in the boot of your car. On the construction side, the same multi-material format as used on the YAKKAir HP (Polyurethane bladders + Dacron bladder sleeve, multi-tube bottom with a coated fabric outer skin) has been used. The rigid stiffeners at front and rear tips help to pre-form the hull, sharpening the cutting edge and further improving the already excellent glide. YAKKAir kayaks can be fitted with flexible deck cover to keep splash water out, without any hindrance to movement or safety. The YAKKAir Lite 1 has been conceived for one person use. Stable, fast, light weight and super comfortable, it’s a fully-equipped kayak with a comfortable seat coming as standard. The YAKKAir Lite 2 has been designed for two person paddling, but can easily be used solo by only mounting one of the seats in the centre of the kayak, where appropriate fittings have been incorporated in the design.

High pressure ! The principle behind these highly innovative inflatables lies in their use of multiple materials to help reduce weight, plus the use of a keel and bottom section inflated to high pressure to give the hull a superbly efficient V shape. Result : the YAKKAir HP and Nomad HP are light weight and high performance boats with the advantage of pack-down and storage into a compact carry bag. This means you can get to further flung and less accessible spots much more easily.

YAKKAir HP1

& HP2

Nomad HP1

& HP3

A revolutionary inflatable kayak

The first high pressure sea kayaks

The YAKKAir range is a true revolution in inflatable kayaks. The guiding principle of these innovative boats has been the use of multiple materials in the construction to help reduce weight, plus the combination of a keel and a high-pressure inflatable hull/floor to maximise the V effect and performance. The YAKKAir series are lighter, perform better and give a more comfortable ride than conventional inflatable kayaks as you are paddling in the dry thanks to the rigid high-pressure floor. Wind drag/resistance is reduced and they are easier to steer at sea, giving them a performance equal to that of existing rigid designs. YAKKAir kayaks are perfect for your seaside holidays : folded down into a carry bag, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re easy to carry on foot or in the boot of your car and are fully inflated for use in minutes using a high-pressure pump with a pressure gauge. YAKKAir kayaks can be fitted with flexible deck cover to keep splash water out, without any hindrance to movement or safety.

The Nomad uses the same concept that was such a success on the YAKKAir HP1 and 2, with a high pressure inflatable keel and bottom section of the hull, together creating a dynamic and high performance hull shape, all at a feather weight and giving an excellent paddle position. As for performance, the Nomad improves in having a higher bow section, its extended length, and a flexible decking system giving better internal protection and enabling even longer trips and excursions. With its decking system, the Nomad HP3 is ideal for longer double paddling excursions, having large space for equipment. It also makes it more viable for the more challenging conditions you find in the cooler seasons. Take out the decking and the HP3 becomes a vast, stable, top-performing family 3-seater. Brand new for 2013 is the Nomad HP1, a solo kayak that follows the same concept as the HP3 (higher bow section, flexible decking...) and of course gives you the same paddle-comfort and protection for your extended solo trips.

Fishing in total freedom The kayaks in the Fishing range enable you to get quickly and easily to the best spots, and to glide through shallows and rocky areas totally risk-free. Single or double-seaters, they set themselves apart from the rest with their beige or green camouflage colouring as well as by their angling-specific fittings (integral rod rests and racks, storage lockers...) giving you the freedom of hassle-free angling action.

Bilbao*

With its very rounded hull shape and narrow tips, the Bilbao Fishing has great glide and excellent stability, guaranteeing you complete safety for your solo fishing trips. The intelligent deck design and quality fittings allow you to carry any kind of load. Its reduced length and weight make it easy to store and transport.

Santiago The Santiago Fishing is a superb base for your open-water fishing trips : stable, with great glide and very manoeuvrable even at low speed, it’s perfect for getting you to the best spot speedily and safely. The standard production fittings are comprehensive, with an adjustable seat which, combined with the wide, adjustable foot rests gives excellent paddle comfort. Good storage space has always been a feature of the Santiago Fishing, and for very good reason, comprising a dry storage, a storage locker, plus a wide rear platform that enables you to load all the gear you need for all your fishing trips. Not forgetting the three rod rests, of which one is pivoting for maximum freedom of movement. Trinidad

Compact but wide, the Trinidad Fishing is the kayak for double paddling. It’s a highly stable boat, designed for solo or two-person fishing trips. It’s got great storage possibilities for your fishing equipment. It can be fitted with the appropriate mountings to take a small electric motor.

Java New for 2013, the Java Fishing gives you above all an outstanding compromise between glide and stability. At more than 4 metres long, you can take on even more ambitious excursions than in the Bilbao. Its large rear storage area and integral roller system are great advantages for angling outings. Better still : comprehensive fittings and accessories giving you lots of options for personalising its set-up, for angling or other trips. The Java is also easily converted into a sea kayak. Borneo A brand new double-seater Sit-On-Top over 4 metres long and crammed with innovative features, the Borneo Fishing has great glide and is comfortably stable. The main innovation : you can switch between solo and double and keep exactly the same comfort of paddle position. A real plus for angling excursions. Its other major pluses : a sizeable flat rear storage area and an integral roller system. And it’s very simple to convert to a sea kayak. YAKKAir HP2

The YAKKAir HP2 Fishing is carried in a wheeled back-pack for easy transport, whether you’re on foot or by car. It only takes a few minutes to set up and is ideal for reaching difficult fishing spots. Its high-pressure keel and high-pressure floor with their solid PVC skin form a highly-efficient V shape hull. Lighter but as powerful and comfortable as a rigid Sit-On-Top kayak, the YAKKAir HP 2 Fishing can also be fitted with a protective canvas cover. It is made from sturdy material that will withstand potential damage from fishing hooks. The YAKKAir HP2 can also be used for solo kayaking, leaving lots of room for all your fishing gear.

SAILING!

www.openbic.com | class.openbic.com A wind of change is what the O’pen BIC has brought to the world of dinghy sailing for kids. Designed specifically for kids, the O’pen BIC is a true glide machine for real excitement on the water. The O’pen BIC, with its modern and powerful rig, is a fast boat, quick to respond, self-bailing, and is fitted by the best marine hardware manufacturers (North, Ronstan, Robline). The O’pen BIC is THE link between the Optimist generation and the new generation of sailing dinghies. Launched in 2006, the O’pen BIC has already convinced more than 5000 young sailors around the world. They love the fun they can get out of it, its capacity to react fast and its prowess. An ISAF international class is also very active for those who enjoy competitive racing. Racing enthusiasts benefit from an energetic international ISAF Class and from the motivation of many national federations who have selected the O’pen BIC for their clubs. This enthusiasm and appeal for the boat can be witnessed from the success of the last World Cups and from the many regattas that are organized around the world. In certain instances, some regattas at national level were able to organize very innovative race formats. The UN Regatta in the United States of America and in Australia are the best example: they put together a cocktail of ingenious freestyle sessions as well as more standard-type regattas, all in a very festive atmosphere which the young racers really enjoyed!


O’pen BIC

For fun, recreation, perfection & racing The hull of the O’pen BIC was designed with fun sailing as the priority. It is a modern boat where the hull is as open as possible, thereby leaving the helmsman completely free to move around and trim the boat to any wind and water conditions. When hiking, the large sides allow the sailor to set-up comfortably with his/her feet in the straps without placing any unnecessary stress on the body. The totally open and sloping cockpit means that there is absolutely no water in the boat either during sailing or just after a capsize. A relatively hard chine design was chosen for the bottom shape of the hull. Used by numerous modern boat architects, this design offers an excellent compromise between performance and stability. When reaching or broad-reaching, the boat accelerates quickly to planing speed. When close-reaching, the boat sets on its chine and has excellent performance up wind. The hull includes integrated carry handles for easy launching into the water and easy transport. The hull is made of thermo-formed polyethylene, which is both affordable and durable. The O’pen BIC is also produced in the spirit of sustainable development: low-energy consumption during the production process and all production waste is recycled. The hull is 100% recyclable, very durable in the long-term and requires minimum maintenance and upkeep. In 2007 BIC Sport was awarded the French Sailing Industry’s «Prix du Bateau Bleu» for the ecological concept behind the O’pen BIC.

O’pen BIC

The O’pen BIC accelerates quickly to planing speed High quality rigs The rig includes a fully-battened, 4.5m² mono-film sail with mast pocket, similar to that of a windsurf sail. Rigged on an epoxy mast, the sail has been designed with an open leech to give sailors maximum control and performance in windy conditions. The Cunningham tackle (6 threads + cleat) associated with the boom vang / boom safety attachment, allows sailors to trim efficiently the tension of the sail. The 4.5 m² & 3.8 m² dacron sail have been designed for clubs and can be rigged on the same mast and boom as the 4.5 m² monofilm rig.

The O’pen BIC breaks away from «classic» sailing International Class The aim of the International O’pen BIC Class is to provide an exciting format of international and national dinghy sailing for young sailors. The steady annual growth of the Events’ Calendar is proof that the Class’s formula of providing exciting race formats on an attractive boat is a great success. At present there are over 10 countries that have regular event calendars of national competitions, and the international World O’pen Cup is the pinnacle each year. The O’pen Cup event style is very original, with some highly innovative courses and race rules derived from funboarding, where races are short and quick, the course changes regularly and can include crosswind legs and freestyle moves or an adventure race, and protests are judged immediately out on the water so no racing time or effort is wasted! These improvements are in line with ISAF’s Introductory Rules of Sailing, and are quite a break from the last 40 years of «classic» sailing. O’pen Cups are a cocktail of fun and pure regatta racing, great for motivating our young sailors and keeping them hooked for life! More information on the Class rules and on the various regattas worldwide can be found on the Class website: http://class.openbic.com

More than 100 000 BIC boats have so far been manufactured and they have become a standard feature in the yachting world. The Sportyak 213 and 245 are stable, strong, light and 100% recyclable at the end of their life-cycle.

Focus on experience

Exceptional stability Their catamaran hull gives them much more stability than all flat or V hulls. This is a major advantage for hunting, fishing or the transport of equipment to an anchored boat. The Sportyak 245 can comfortably accommodate three people who can, if necessary, change sides without any risk of capsizing.

Comparison Sportyak 245 versus V-hull As soon as the weight is off-centre a V-Hull becomes unstable and dangerous, unlike the double catamaran shape hull of the Sportyak 245, which provides high stability and therefore prevents capsizing. Test done with two adults on the same side.

The safety of the double hull The double hull gives added safety to passengers. Even if a very violent impact made a hole on the outside hull, the inner hull would provide sufficient flotation to get back to shore.

The toughness of polyethylene The Sportyak 213 and the Sportyak 245 are made of polyethylene which makes them virtually indestructible. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about leaving them in dinghy racks or on the beach. UV rays, salt and every day impacts have no effect on them. When no longer in use, these boats are entirely recyclable.

Bumper Outside hull Inner hull

Light weight The Sportyak 213 and the Sportyak 245 are light which is an essential characteristic for a boat that is most of the time carried by hand and loaded onto roof racks. It is thanks to their double hull structure that even though they are very light, there has been no compromise on safety aspects.

Easily carried The Sportyak 213 and the Sportyak 245 are particularly easy to carry. Several carry-handles have been positioned around the Sportyak 245 to facilitate its beach-launching and handling. The Sportyak 213 can be fitted with a roller kit. The Sportyak 245 is fitted with wide rollers integrated into the design of the hull which do not affect in any way the boatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance on water, whether it is being rowed or powered by an outboard engine.
