We bought a BIC Sport last year and had it at a family reunion. It is a well built stable board. Out of all the Kayaks and Sup boards we had it became the favorite of everyone. It is an easy board to put more than one person on. It was stable easy to handle in difficult condition and held allot of weight. You would buy a different board for speed. If you are looking for a stable easy to handle SUP this would be a good one especially at its price. I have not tried it in the surf yet. I would like to hear others experience with that.

I have used this board for paddle boarding & wind surfing lessons. Great board , stable,easy to maneuver- a joy to use
Enjoy using it for wind surfing, as well as, paddleboarding- very solid & has held up well over the past 5 summers of 2 week summer camps.I can get across the Lake pretty quickly, while getting a great core workout!:)
I use it for recreational wind surf & paddle board lessons - would love to own one....hint, hint
I love my 11' Bic SUP...
I love my 11' Bic SUP Ace-Tec. I'm a bigger guy at 6'3" and and 280 lbs, and this board is steady and easily balanced. I had ridden a few other boards prior to this one and stability was always an issue. The length/width and displacement on this board make super comfortable.
Perfect length width and displacement for a big guy. Easy enough for a novice and tough enough for a pro.
It's very large, so storage is a bit of an issue.
Primarily used for exercise and touring on flat waters.
My Bic paddleboard dream...
My Bic paddleboard dream is very much alive. I tested Bic cross platinum and loved it.
Large enough for my "on the heavy side" frame. Sits high above water. Has plenty of area for my dog to sit or stand. It's of course a cross so its versitile on many different water ways. I also like the width and thickness of board.
May be hard for me to carry as I've only short arms. Thats about it. Otherwise its perfect for me.
Touring by my local river n for excersice n strength training.
The BIC Ace-Tec Cross is...
The BIC Ace-Tec Cross is wonderful for SUP yoga, both in the pool and out on open water! The board is very stable in the water and easy to paddle. The divided grippy-mat surface allows a firm anchor for the hands and feet in yoga poses. Its classic styling looks great!
Divided mat for a firm grip; stable ride; easy to handle
Aggressive grippy surface makes knees sore after a while
Everything like the 10'...
Everything like the 10' CROSS but larger for more stability. Making it one of the most user friendly boards out there. Can hold weight up to 285lbs. Used for family outing and fishing.
Great for all around SUP'ers and families just beginning.
Best for only flatwater therefore not as versatile as other BICs
