BIC is one of the windsurfing gear manufacturers who make no compromise when it brings something new on the market. Either it is a sail, a board or any other equipment, their team spends a lot of effort in the process of research and development to make sure that any rider out there will be satisfied. The Core windsurfing board mixes speed with control to offer a great freeride session. And even more it is quite affordable and a great choice for a rider who is looking for top quality at a fair price.

The board features a slightly wider profile and a compact outline. This ergonomic shape makes it sprint at high speeds trough the waves. The volume is proportionally distributed to create optimal floatability as well as stability. The board can be powered up really easy even in light wind and can reach very fast an impressive speed. It has a good acceleration as well as early planning and jibbing abilities. It also has extra grip, so the sailor can perform fast turns and rotations and focus on the ride, while the BIC Core remains responsive and provides only positive feedback at any move. For the beginner and less experienced sailor who loves freeride BIC has created two Core versions that are more forgiving and easier to use. They are called Core D and pack extra volume to assure maximum stability and feature a daggerboard system for enhanced control, grip and to optimize the power delivery. The Core D is also fast and can reach a nice speed when it is fully powered up, but remains stable all the time and offers a comfortable safe feeling.

Both BIC Core and BIC Core D are built on a Thermoformed Glass Composite structure. This construction assures that the board is stiff, highly durable but light at the same time. With the addition of the Core for the 2010 Board lineup, BIC is definitely going to have a word to say in freeride style. BIC Core is best used with a 5.5 to 8.5 square meters sail, while the Core D works great with a 2.5 up to 8.5 meters wide one.

It is a great board for any rider. Powerful enough for the advanced one and forgiving for the beginner.
