The Manta, while primarily a SUP surf foil board, is also a lot of fun on shorter downwind runs and longer runs for advanced paddlers. This board is designed to catch waves and swell which would not normally be ideal surfing conditions, however, they are a blast on the Manta. Don’t miss a day on the water when the conditions are less than ideal.
This board pops up on foil, glides on low energy swell, and can carve up a storm. You could call the Manta your ‘daily driver.' This board is stable and has enough length, volume, and glide to lift you up onto the foil in the big blue, yet has a low enough swing weight that you can also drop-in, kick out, and pump your board back out to the lineup for another ride.

Full PVC Sandwich with Co-Woven Kevlar/Carbon - SIC’s highest end foil construction with a full PVC sandwich wrapping the EPS core (top, bottom, 360 degree rails) for a light, stiff and very durable construction. The board is wrapped in co-woven kevlar/carbon weave as foiling introduces new challenges in terms of coping with the load from the foil and the impact from the paddle. This construction address weight, strength, and durability like few if any other boards on the market. These boards are molded to ensure great lamination strength and that every board is precisely like the master shaped by Mark Raaphorst.
FOIL SUP / SURF / SAIL
SIC has stepped into the foil market with a tight collection of thoroughly tested shapes, high-performance construction, and beautiful graphic execution. Mark Raaphorst has been one of the leading designers of foil boards developing refining his foil designs for the last 3 years. As with all SIC products these boards have been tested in the waters on Maui as well as put to the test by team riders like Eric Terrien who has also been a pioneer and top competitor in windsurfing, SUP, and now foiling. Terrien won a number of races in 2019 on the prototypes which have led to the 2020 production designs. Terrien turned heads in April of ‘19 at the Kelt Ocean Race in France where he finished 1st in the foil division and set a French first when he also finished ahead of all of the SUP racers in this prestigious downwind event.
