My BIC 10'4 ACS SUP; has been my 1st SUP purchase. The price(~$700)was a good price point for my budget which intrigued me to try SUP. The board is made from thermoformed polyethylene. It is a solid/sturdy board. Two smaller persons can paddle around on it just fine. It is light in weight (~33#'s); which is plus to load/unload from it's storage rack &/or on/off a vehicle by oneself. It is a stable board & handles small surf well. It has a padded/rubberized/cushioned area for your feet placement & a carry handle. Pros inexpensive; good start up SUP Cons -a bit low riding in the water; water tends to ride up a bit on the edges. -also; the stock rudder tends to snag on weeds in shallow waters. Usage exercise/touring

Recently purchased the BIC SUP 10'4 to get into the sport of SUP. The price was right/was marked down nearly 1/2 off the retail price due to small manufacture flaws from a local dealer-which have NOT interferred with use/performance. Have used it (2) times thus far. Once on flat water & once on a more choppy day. Was able to quickly master it/balance without falling. Able to paddle straight/lean into turns & beginning to do maneuvers such as yoga & standing on the tail to elevate the nose. Pros Price. Ease of use for a beginner/stability. Maneuverability. Size/weight for transport. Cons Found that the fin tangles while paddling in weedy bays & makes paddling difficult. Will be getting a replacement fin specifically to aid in paddling in weedy areas. Usage Flatwater touring. Surfing on windy days.
