What's the Craze About Honu's Newly Designed 185 Fin Box?
A fin box that is absolutely unique to Honu. The Honu 185 Fin Box is ground-breaking for three reasons combined. It can fit more than one kind of fin. The overall footprint of the design is 50mm shorter than the leading brand used on high-end boards--makes board-packing a lot easier. It is extremely strong and durable.

Honu Stand Up Paddleboards as a brand has been established now for more than 20...

Honu Stand Up Paddleboards as a brand has been established now for more than 20 years. With its roots firmly planted in Bondi Beach, Australia, Honu was founded under the principle of providing good quality surf and paddleboards at affordable prices. Fast forward to 2021, and those same principles still apply, but with a few noteworthy changes.
