11'6 SEARCH

11'6 SEARCH

Versatile and very stable

The 11’6’’ Search is an ideal all-around SUP for novice riders up to 260lbs/120kg and will perform in the surf zone for more advanced paddlers up to 300lbs.
Its substantial volume and width offer excellent lateral stability without compromising performance. Volume is evenly spread throughout the board and its finely balanced rocker and longboard-style outline make it easy to handle in flatwater conditions without reducing agility in the surf zone. The 11’6’’ is also a great choice for families looking to bring along the kids or pets.
Oxbow’s Search series features performance-minded surf designs blended with confidence-inspiring stability and a moderate rocker profile for versatility in flat-water conditions.
A soft EVA deck pad comes standard on all 10’6 models as well as two attachment points on the front of the board for adding bungee cord to secure water bottles, sandals and other gear. These attachment points can also be used to add accessories such as a camera or cell phone holder.

Technology

Oxbow ACE-TEC boards are built in France using proprietary thermoforming technology and a sustainable manufacturing process with zero emission, low energy consumption, no solvents and an extremely low rejection rate. With over 30 years of proven consistency and quality using these techniques, we know molding. The distinguishing features of Oxbow’s molded technologies can be summed up in two words - PRESSURE and PRECISION :

PRESSURE: All Oxbow ACE-TEC boards are made in molds that apply tons of pressure during the manufacturing process to bond the boards together perfectly, in one shot, over the whole surface.

PRECISION: In order to handle the significant pressures used during this process Oxbow boards are made in precision engineered aluminum molds that precisely replicate the original board shape to the nearest millimeter, ensuring an exact replica of the shaper’s original design every time.

This combination of PRESSURE with PRECISION is unique in the world of SUP board manufacturing, resulting in industry leading consistency and quality.

Oxbow SUP

Oxbow is the name for a river that takes a meandering path on its journey to the ocean. Born in the mid-1980’s in Normandy, France, the Oxbow brand found inspiration in this idea – a desire to wander and an understanding that life is about the journey, not the destination. Choosing nature and the relationship with the ocean as it founding value, the brand puts emphasis on the quality of its products and the pleasure they bring, providing new twists on fashion with an unconventional approach.

Oxbow developed alongside some of watersports greatest athletes, such as Laird Hamilton, pioneer of tow-in surfing, kitesurf, foilsurfing and stand-up paddle surfing. For 30 years, Oxbow has never stopped exploring new territories and supporting riders in pursuit of their passions.

The early 2000s saw the emergence and incredible growth of Stand Up Paddle, a new sport born from the convergence of these waves of enthusiasm. Oxbow has lent its support and experience to many top riders and events that have given visibility and an enduring legacy to the sport, including Laird Hamilton, pioneer of tow-in surfing, kitesurf, foilsurfing and stand-up paddle surfing. For 30 years, Oxbow has never stopped exploring new territories and supporting riders in pursuit of their passions.

Around the same time in France the Bich family, of BIC pen fame, united their passion for the sea with expertise in sustainable manufacturing to found BIC Sport. Today BIC Sport is a world leader in boardsports manufacturing, designing and building paddleboards, surfboards and windsurf boards using exclusive construction technologies in Vannes, France.
