2020 5'8 DARKHORSE SIC
The soft board revolution is on and they are no longer thought of as simply a toy. The fusion of great shapes and highly engineered construction come together in a vortex of style and performance.
The Darkhorse features a glass wrapped EVA core and wooden I-Beam stringer making it unlike other soft board on the market today. This creates a fun, lively, high-performance feel. Its FCS Fusion compatible finboxes are glassed in and PVC reinforced to give you maximum lateral stability and drive through the turns. The foam backed HDPE skin makes the Darkhorse durable and offers more protection for when you get tossed in the shore break.

SHAPED BY JON HENDERSON SANTA CRUZ
“SIC worked with veteran Santa Cruz, California shaper Jon Henderson to create the Drifter. Henderson has been shaping boards for more than 30 years and has honed his craft and shapes through his custom brand and while shaping for many other leading surf brands throughout the years. Henderson understands that a shape like the Drifter needs work in waves everywhere and has therefore drawn on his decades of experience to design a board that can be surfed in breaks around the world.
