Now that we’re rested after the long drive home, and settled back in on the boat, here’s my post about the last day of the show. Well…technically the second day of the show.
Since we already got our board, and a big pile of brochures for new toys, not to mention 2 long days of walking around the Convention Center, I decided to cut it short. Most of the post show fun was Friday night anyway.
11′ ACE-TEC CROSS Adventure
BIC’s new 11′ CROSS Adventure is an updated version of the original 10′ CROSS. It has a keeled nose for increased glide, and full rail-to-rail volume offering great stability.
With its increased size, the new board is even more stable than the original, and designed for riders up to 300lbs. Featuring 10 attachment points, the CROSS Adventure is a great board for fishing and cruising.
The CROSS Adventure sells for $1,299.95 on Amazon, with FREE shipping.
Speaking of the CROSS…I finally found it! After wandering around the show for a few hours, I stumbled across that electric motor I mentioned from Demo Day. And completely by accident.
It was sitting in BIC’s booth, right where I was told it would be, and the very first place I stopped that day. Not only that, but it was attached to the 11′ CROSS Adventure, the first board I looked at.
The ELECTRAFIN has a top speed of 4-5 miles per hour, depending on the board you’re using with. Run times are 2 hours at top speed and 6 hours on low speed. A wireless remote that can be attached to your paddle is included.

New Color For The ACE-TEC Wing
As I mentioned in my post about Demo Day, BIC Sport is doing away with Wing Limited in blue. Starting this year, they’re going to be making this board in red, which I personally think looks even cooler.
Only the 11′ model was on display at the show. The 12’6″ version was available on Demo Day to try out, though. One of my reasons for going to the show this year was to get a Wing Limited, so I jumped on this board as soon as I saw it.
No one is even selling the new red Wing yet, and we left with the only one at the show strapped to the roof of our car. Sparky is the first to have one!
That’s It For Now!
I have to do some clean up to do on the boat for Airbnb guests tonight. And we need to get the lettering on this new SUP. In the next few I’ll start posting a lot more details, including reviews on the new toys I saw at the show.
