FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SIC (“Sandwich Islands Composites”) Team SIC Sweeps in Big Surf at the Punta Sayulita Longboard & SUP Classic on Production SIC X 12 PRO
SAN CLEMENTE, CA, March 12, 2014- SIC MAUI
Team SIC’s Georges Cronsteadt and Lina Augaitis finished first on both days of racing. Held in very large surf, Saturday’s Elite race was a 2k BOP style for three laps. Georges and Lina were in a class of their own from the start. Lina left the women, and most of the men, behind on her X 12 PRO catching good waves from the final buoy on every lap. Georges Cronsteadt looked like his normal self with his effortless stroke in the challenging conditions.
“This was a great weekend for SIC,” said Braly Joy, Director of Marketing SIC. “To see Georges looking so strong so soon after surgery is amazing and to have our newest member of the team Lina Augaitis beat most of the Elite men was awesome.”
On Sunday, it was again team SIC all alone in the distance race. Racers started on the beach and had to navigate out through big surf. After the horn, it was only Georges Cronsteadt on his X 12 PRO that made it through the breakers without falling and never looked back. Lina was very fast on the long course and finished an incredible 5th overall, with only the top 4 men finishing before her.
SIC is a division of FLOW SPORTS, Inc. headquartered in San Clemente CA. FLOW Sports Inc. acquired SIC in July of 2012 and is now distributing the brand globally.
