By popular demand, SIC introduced the Okeanos Air-Glide model in 2020. This board is modeled after the Okeanos Composite model in terms of dimensions and design. The Okeanos appeals to a large target group of paddlers and can be loaded with a lot of gear on both the bow and the stern due to a generous configuration of luggage straps. The board can be equipped with a single center fin or with two additional side fins for stability and better tracking. It can also be used with just the two side fins in flat water, rivers and even whitewater. The FST technology (Fusion Skin Technology) makes this board very stiff and durable, so it can keep up with fixed touring boards even with the larger payload.
We tested the Okeanos and were surprised how well it paddles, especially with a lot of weight. It also makes an excellent base for the BAJAO Cabin.

Technologies and Construction
FST (Fusion Skin Technology) the stiffest material you can make an inflatable with. This material has a low stretch, high strength skin that is heat welded to the outer PVC skin. This stiffer skin ensures that the board is super stiff at pressures as low as 15psi, although it could be inflated to 20 psi
The boards are built using a tight drop stitch process.
