2020 9'2 PEAK LONGBOARD X28"
The Peak Longboard bring traditional longboard performance from surfing to a SUP Board. Essentially this is a subtle combination of excellent glide for early take-offs and speed along the wave face, driving and graceful turns off the tail on the face off the wave, and noseriding stability.
These boards maximize stability in a SUP context with a flattened deck shape that extends the volume out towards the rails. A little volume has been added to the center of the deck profile and the rails are slightly more steeply pitched to maintain sensitivity while riding waves, even with the added stability and glide while catching them.
Featuring our authentic wood construction, the Peak Longboards will allow you to cruise the waves with style.

The C-TEC construction has been specially designed to come out with light and rigid SUP OXBOWs for optimized glide while retaining good impact resistance. The success of this technology is mainly due to the choice of Innegra / Carbon hybrid fabric over the entire length of the board which is associated with a low density polystyrene core. The main advantage of this composite is to combine the rigidity of carbon and the impact resistance of Innegra.
- Ultra light EPS foam core, for minimal weight.
- Innegra carbon fiber sandwich, for minimum weight, excellent rigidity and increased durability.
- Localized reinforcement on key impact zones, which improves the durability of these zones while reducing the overall weight.
- Matte brushed finish for superior glide and better protection against the sun.
- "Diamond Groove" grooved deck pad for maximum grip.
Oxbow, or the idea of constant movement and wake found in board sports. A reference that anchors nature as the founding value of the brand. Born in the mid-80s, the company of Normandy origin has created an avant-garde style carried by the windsurfing fashion at a time when this sport symbolized the new "sliding generation". During this decade, BIC Sport is riding the same wave by becoming the world's largest manufacturer of windsurfers. It's the era of pastel shades, fluorescent and bleached hair ... In the two companies and in their respective teams of athletes, we find the bubbling of ideas and styles that marked a whole generation of enthusiasts .
The 90s initiated a new cycle with diversification towards other emerging sports. The Breton company BIC Sport has opened its production to surfing, notably manufacturing longboards, as many boards which have made it possible to initiate tens of thousands of enthusiasts in this sport and to make them discover a new lifestyle.
At the same time, Oxbow, which has meanwhile migrated to the southwest, contributed to the aura of European surfing by domiciling in France some of the world’s super stars in this sport. It supports the biggest longboard events and sponsors the best representatives of the most extreme sports. During the same years, OXBOW turned to the world of snowboarding and motocross while BIC Sport consolidated its position in windsurfing and surfing and initiated new sporting practices in these two activities. It is the birth of the "cross over" with which all enthusiasts still identify today.
The end of the 2000s saw the emergence of Stand Up Paddle, born from the convergence of these sports and these passions. BIC Sport has invested all its know-how to create a full range of innovative boards. At the same time, Oxbow supports the best athletes and the major events that structure this new sport.
Over the destinies of these two French companies, we find the same values, the same passions and the same roots in the world of skiing. Their coming together now appears quite natural. The fruit of this collaboration: a new range of Stand Up Paddle made in France * by BIC Sport displaying the Oxbow colors. From this alliance is born a global offer which offers winter sports enthusiasts complete equipment ranging from boards and paddles to technical textiles for sport [&] lifestyle.
Who can say what the next board sport will be? One thing is certain, BIC Sport and Oxbow are now joining forces so that you can practice Stand Up Paddle and discover the magical sensations of sliding in the heart of nature with the best products.
