The Okeanos, one of the most exciting boards that SIC launched in 2019, has quickly been hailed as one of the greatest new fitness and touring boards on the market, winning the SUPConnect “Best Touring Board” and “Best Overall Board” awards in 2019.
This touring and fitness board paddles with ease and is capable of maintaining a fast and efficient glide. The nose chine in the bow helps to soften the ride in rough waters and track extremely well under power in wind and cross-chop. The generous tail width and full, squared up rails help make this board very stable. The wide point in the front section of the board has been shifted forward which also adds to the overall stability.
The board has also been outfitted with numerous tie downs to mount your cargo and can handle quite the payload. It is also super stable rail-to-rail making this a great board to fish from. The finbox configuration is also outfitted with a standard U.S. finbox for your main stabilizing fin, however side fins can be added for additional tracking and stability. You can also run the board with two shallow draft side fins in shallow rocky waters to provide a stable platform to rest the board on land when you have substantial gear tied down to the decking.
The Okeanos is built in SIC’s Dragon Fly (DF) construction which is constructed with a full oak wood veneer wrapping the core – tip-to-tail / 360-degree rail-to-rail wrap. This is arguably one of the most durably constructed composite boards on the market today and it remains at a very competitive weight and affordable price.
Named after the ancient Greek god of the sea!
The Okeanos, one of the most exciting boards that SIC launched in 2019, has quickly been hailed as one of the greatest new fitness and touring boards on the market. These boards have hardly been able to stay on the rack in stores which is great because the Okeanos is even more beautiful on the water. Named after the ancient Greek god of the sea and the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer located in the middle of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, the purpose of the ship “Okeanos” is to systematically explore our largely unknown ocean for the purpose of discovery and the advancement of knowledge. A fitting namesake for this board as it too is designed for discovery and adventure.

This construction offers durability at a very economical price. The board is wrapped glass and with the full wood wrap on the rails replaces the need for Innegra™. These boards are also molded for strength and shape Consistency.
