Hopefully the link will work

SIC have a few updated models for 2019 RS 14 x 21.5 and 12'6 x 20 ?

Bayonet 12'6 x 26 and a 14 x 24.5 which should be a beast in the right hands

Those widths are making me feel very old. It would be embarrassing to turn up to a race with a 14x26 RS when there are people on versions that are 6" narrower! I'd be starting with such a handicap they'd hardly be any point. You might as well give out the prizes on the basis of how narrow each person's board is.

Maybe I should join the surf shape class...

Oh well, I guess it was frankly a bit daft that old farts like me should be racing anyway. It was fun while it lasted. There was a moment there where I could beat - or at least stay with - people half my age. But now I can't even stand on the boards they use! That's progress, I guess.

"But now I can't even stand on the boards they use! "

Take the positive stance from this Area10...at least now you don't even have to pretend you like racing the young kids...

We've had an RS 14 x 21.5 on pre order for a couple of months so hopefully it will be here end of this month early next. Not for me as I think the 23 is my limit but my lad should fly on it

Hi Tim!

The 24.5 is super stable, so guys are going narrower now: 23 for ocean conditions and 21.5 for pure flatwater. I'm going 23'' but wouldn't mind having a 21.5 for the flats

I will be trying the 21.5 but at my age and weight I think it will be have to be very very flat

You'll be fine in flat stuff, in terms of staying on. I paddled a 14x21.5 a couple of years ago and didn't get wet. And you have better balance than me. But the problem I had was in being fast as well as staying dry. I lost so much rhythm and power staying upright that I'd probably have been faster on a 10-6x30 surf shape!

I won't tell you that as there is no change except for the narrower models

They'll probably be lucky to sell more than 4 of the 21.5" wide boards in the whole of the UK. So it's mainly a marketing exercise really, I guess. Maybe more will be sold in Oz, but there won't be that many people who can paddle a 21.5" wide board in the sea.

But I'm glad they've kept the same design. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And keeping a design for a while might help secondhand board sales. At the moment, depreciation on carbon boards is so steep that you'd have to be a millionaire to buy a new one at anything like RRP.

Well one is sold already and it wouldn't surprise me if we dont take a second over here after that one arrives and is tried by a few people

I'm not sure, I bought a 23" wide this year because it feels just as stable as the 24.5" RS to me. I'm just under 5'9" so that helps... but in waves and chop I didn't feel an advantage going wider. I think the question will be how much volume will the 21.5 have... at 185 pounds I can't go much smaller in volume without pushing water. ... but it is not out of the question. So maybe 6 boards will sell in the UK and 15 in the US.
