Bic Sports Background
Founded in 1979 by the Bich family, of BIC pen fame, BIC Sport grew from the family’s passion for water-sports and expertise in sustainable manufacturing.
BIC’s core values of quality, durability and affordability form the foundation of the brand’s reputation and has opened the world of water-sports to hundreds of thousands of water sports enthusiasts, thrill-seekers, and those simply happy to spend time out on the water enjoying nature.
The following showcases the passion, drive and commitment of BIC Sport to not only build better boards and boats, but to encourage and inspire an active, environmentally aware lifestyle based on the one thing on which we all depend: WATER.
By the late 1980's BIC Sport was a world leader in windsurf manufacture, and over the following 20+ years the company utilized their technological manufacturing skills on other passion projects including surf, kayak, junior racing dinghies and most recently, Stand Up Paddle-boarding (SUP).
BIC’s core values of quality, durability and affordability form the foundation of the brand’s reputation and has opened the world of water-sports to hundreds of thousands of water-sports enthusiasts, thrill-seekers, and those simply happy to spend time out on the water enjoying nature.
In fact, BIC Sport has made respect for the environment a priority in every stage of how its production systems are organized. This commitment has been recognized by the Ecoride organization and other business awards such as the Prix du Bateau Bleu.
Every BIC Sport product is developed by a passionate team of designers and made in France using high tech production systems that faithfully reproduce perfect copies of the original design. BIC Sport’s exclusive construction methods and materials deliver many years of reliable, high frequency use.
Today, BIC Sport is acknowledged as the pioneer of production surf boards in the highly demanding surf market. It’s also a European leader in the Sit-on-Top Kayak market thanks to a range of innovative products which have won numerous design awards.
Most recently Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is an area of dynamic development for the company. The sport is growing at a phenomenal rate and represents more than ever the values of simplicity and accessibility that have made the BIC Sport brand such a long-standing success. Over the past several years BIC Sport received the following awards recognizing its achievements in SUP: GEAR OF THE YEAR award by Outside Magazine, America’s leading outdoor publication, for the Wing 11’ and 12’6, BRAND OF THE YEAR awarded by the EuroSima organization and GEAR OF THE YEAR award by Men’s Journal Magazine, another leading US publication, for the 12’6 SUP AIR inflatable board.
On the competition scene, BIC Sport created a brand new concept in junior windsurfing with the BIC Techno 293 One Design board, which has now become the officially recognized race board for Under 17 riders worldwide. This monotype/formula race class has grown at an incredible rate and is now established in over 40 countries. BIC Sport injected the same energy into sailing with its junior race dinghy, the exciting and innovative O’pen BIC, which has motivated the world of junior sailing in over 30 countries. In Stand Up Paddling the BIC SUP One Design Challenge was recently launched using the award-winning Wing 11’ & 12’6. This unique and inclusive race series takes place throughout the world in local SUP communities, allowing participants to test their speed and skills with everyone using the exact same board.
O’pen BIC celebrated its 10th birthday in 2016, along with the production of its 8,000th boat. Designed specifically for juniors, our little dinghy has blown a big breath of fresh air through our sailing world, close to the new-generation skiff concept, very fast and very simple. 100% open, self-bailing, rapid and responsive, with an up-to-date versatile rig, the O'pen BIC offers kids a machine that delivers maximum fun while helping them learn the skills and reflexes to enjoy racing on current, high-performance equipment. Hundreds of sailing clubs around the world have opted for the O'pen BIC, for a new, fun way of teaching sailing to appeal to youngsters attracted to new sail sports.
The O’pen BIC has also ruffled the feathers of the traditional race scene, with race formats and simplified rules that focus more on fun and improvement than just race results. Innovative courses and rules, on-water refereeing, and even freestyle encourage participation and a variety of sailing skills.
At international level, the class is more action-packed than ever, with an ever-increasing calendar of international regattas and events. This summer's World Championships in Quiberon, France, brought together 205 racers from 15 countries. Our best ever entry. In our homeland of Europe there are more and more participants and competitions : many nations are seeing a rapid growth of O'pen BIC fleet and taking advantage of that dynamic to encourage more and more young converts to sailing.
Some of the national championships offer a totally innovative take on competition sailing. UN Regattas in America and Australia are great examples, mixing a cocktail of anything-goes freestyle sessions with classic regatta racing, with the emphasis on fun as well as finesse.
Look out for the O’pen BIC to show-case this innovative “Un-Regatta” format when thirty-two VERY lucky youngsters are selected for the America’s Cup Finals in Bermuda. O’pen BICs will be the half time show, broadcast world-wide, between Race #1 and Race #2 of the America’s Cup Finals, June 17, 2017. Learn more about this exciting event on those pages.
