Bic SUP offers the Cross Adventure in a 12-foot model for more fishing space.

We fell in love with the Bic Cross Adventure 11 after its release last year. Now there’s more to love with the 12-foot model. The new board still features strategically located leash plugs and gear tracks molded into the deck and anchored to take a beating. The attachment points are designed to accept all manner of mount and accessories including YakAttack’s new Command Stand bar. BIC worked with pro anglers to design the deck layout for the ultimate in customization. The deck is covered with non-slip and padding. A double concave hull pushes volume to the rails for stablity and creates a center ridge that improves tracking. The theme for BIC is durability and they back it up with Ace-Tec construction. This uses a tough blow-molded skin that is injected with foam for a board that can bounce around rocks and pilings without showing any abuse. For 2017, they are making five models with a new Tough Tec construction that sandwiches a foam core with a thermo-formed sheets for a SUP that is as tough as a kayak. We like the 11-foot Cross Adventure for fishing. They’ve even offered a new Quick Fin that doesn’t require tools to install. These high-quality boards offer all this at an unbelievable price. The 12-foot Cross Adventure runs 1499 and you can get into a 11(0) Cross for $749.

“Thank God my dad wasn’t a podiatrist,” jokes Ric about following in the footsteps of a famous outdoor writer. After graduating from Radford University and serving two years in Russia with the Peace Corps, Ric returned to Virginia Beach and started writing for The Fisherman magazine, where his dad was editor. When the kayak fishing scene exploded, Ric was among the first to get onboard. His 2007 book, The Complete Kayak Fisherman is one of the first tomes to introduce anglers to paddle fishing and hundreds of articles and seminars have brought countless anglers into the fold. When he’s not chasing every fish that swims, Ric teaches English at a school for at-risk teens.
