14'0" x 28" Tracer Description

Launched in 2015 and lauded for their impressive performance, smooth feel on the water and eye-catching graphics, the Tracer series has been updated to improve speed and glide as well as comfort and stability. The flat section under foot has been extended forward towards the nose to improve stability while a lower profile piercing nose increases efficiency by smoothly parting the water on entry. A squared off 'chisel' shaped tail reduces drag and the standing area was revised to more efficiently shed water. Deck attachment points make it easy to secure extra gear for extended trips. A new brushed white Carbon-Innegra finish throughout the board looks great, reduces weight and improves durability while protecting the board from overheating in the sun.

Great Board

After 3 years with my 12'6" Ace Tec Wing, I got a 14' x 28" C-Tec Tracer a couple of weeks ago, and so far I am loving it. My board is new from BIC so it has the 2015 upgrades to improve stability, performance and sun resistance. Another great surprise is that the new 14' board now has the side carry handles that to date have only come on the 12'6" models--a welcome and unexpected bonus.

This board is not sold as a race board--the Tracer World Series boards are sold as racing boards. Rather, this is a touring board but it is noticeably lighter and faster than my Wing. It is not as stable as the wider Wing, but it's fine, even at my 240 pound body weight. The foam pad is far more comfortable on bare feet than the pad on the Wing. The Tracer has 4 bungee attachment points, in addition to front and rear attachment points, allowing things easily to be carried. The flat white painted areas have a cool whitewashed look that I like a lot, thought that will be a matter of personal taste. I'm sure it keeps a lot of heat from being absorbed by the board when left in the sun. The board has 2 vents--one front and one rear, and warning stickers advise that the vents be open on aircraft.

The only quality issue I have found early on is that the bright warning stickers that surround the vents are unbelievably crooked. A kindergartner could have done a better job with these. Plus, the warning stickers are made so that they don't peel off cleanly. Instead, the top layer comes off in pieces, leaving a very tenacious adhesive behind that is an enormous pain to remove. WD-40 did little to help dissolve it, so I resorted to 3M automotive adhesive remover, which was a big help. I was very worried it might damage the finish of the board, but it didn't hurt it.

At $2100 the board is not cheap, but I think it's very worth it. So much so that my beloved Wing is now on craigslist.

I absolutely love this...

I absolutely love this board. I'm taking mine on some 20 km trips or just for sundowners with the lady. The rocker is nice and high, so it just cuts through side waves and chop. Once you get used to it, then it's very stable and performs well in deep water. Here in Estonia, we have some ferries traveling about in the bay, so we get regular small sets of waves. This board doubles in speed each time you can catch a helping bump. Figure out your logistics how you transport this board and also get a bag for it. Pros Very nice glide, goes straight effortless, large surface area, light weight, loads of room for gear, excellent padding material, gopro suction cup mount holds well on bare carbon Cons Fragile (in 1 yr I managed to hit a hole into mine, but with some Solarez, faux sun and spray paint repaired it easily) Usage For touring, surf, yoga, exercise, thinking about racing it this year on some 5-10 km distances.

Really fast and...

Really fast and predictable board that loves to glide but isn't impossible to turn. Stable in beam seas. Light and well made with really cool graphics. Recently I took 3rd on a 20 mile open crossing of Lake Superior on this board. Really love it. Pros Light, fast, well made, recessed nose rigging, stable, comfy. Cons Fin is small. Added Futures JB Keel and it rips. Recessed tail rigging would be a plus for touring. Usage Touring, racing, teaching.

62 year old male 5'8" 230 pounds wanting to go faster than my 14' exocet marlin carbon. Use in intra coastal waterways. Needed something for racing that has enough volume to support the winter gains! Pros Glide, weight, way it cuts though waves, looks, has bow attachment! One of the few boards a heavy guy can use! Cons Wish they had put the side handles on it! It needs a different fin! I'm experimenting, it sure is squirrelly going down wind! Water does stay where you stand so when you sit down you get wet butt! Usage Racing, exercise,
