Last year the 2021 Honu Sorrento was a test winning board in our Touring board. But that didn’t stop Honu from working hard on their 2022 board to make it even better. With its new rail construction the 2022 Honu Sorrento is, for its weight, the stiffest board we have ever tested!

Welded Carbon Rails

The rail construction combines a heat/pressure welded inner rail with a 3K carbon band. This unique construction increases the board's durability and rigidity, and is exclusive to Honu.

Product Highlight Image

Woven & Fused Drop-stitch

X-woven drop-stitch produces the strongest & lightest boards possible. The PVC nylon threads are woven together in a carbon fiber style instead of the usual knitted pattern that results in a stiffer, lighter PVC.

Product Highlight Image

Stacked Carbon Stringers

The top & bottom stringers on the Sorrento combine a 50mm 3K carbon layer with an outer 150mm vinyl stringer that runs nose to tail. This combination provides rigidity and the classic minimal aesthetic Honu boards are known for.

4 Year Total Care Warrenty

Every Honu SUP is covered by our 2+2 warranty. That is 2 years of warranty replacement & 4 years of repair. And that's repair for any damage, not just manufacturing faults.

When the 2021 Sorrento won the award against the biggest SUP brands in the world, we were already deep into the 2022 redesign. We had some bold plans to take what we already knew to be a great board and make it an industry benchmark, and was in the early stage of prototyping our new rail construction.

We have taken a great board and made it even better! 

Designed for those wanting to paddle further, it has enough anchor points for your backpack, water bottle, snacks and extra clothing. At 12'6" long by 30" wide, the Sorrento paddles easily in a straight line while remaining stable enough for all but total beginner paddle boarders. This sweet spot of speed and stability makes it the perfect board for riders who want to go far, fast, on their morning SUP paddle or lead the way on a weekend camping adventure. 

So what is new in 2022?  The board keeps its 5.9" thickness crafted from our light & strong X-woven material and overall outline, but from here, we launch into a list of improvements, some of which are 100% unique to Honu. The welded rails is something we are very proud of, but as you will see, we have made improvements just about everywhere. 

Welded Carbon Rails 

The rail is now constructed using heat+pressure welding that mechanically fuses the inner rail with a 25mm wide strip. This process is complex and tedious but forms a highly durable join. Then a 50mm carbon rail is bonded into the rail for added stiffness and protection before the outer rail is finally applied. When taking a close look at the rails on the new Sorrento, you will see a series of parallel lines. It is this complexity of our construction that creates these. 

Stacked Carbon Stringers 

The carbon stringer is now reduced to 50mm top and bottom for 2022, but is bonded under a 150mm vinyl strip. This stacked construction has improved the board's stiffness while simplifying the styling of the board, something we are sure our paddlers will appreciate. 

Upgraded Accessories 

It is delivered with the all-new Sorrento SUP backpack with a larger front pocket and improved side storage areas. The wheeled backpack also gets improved shoulder straps that are more contoured and padded for longer hikes into remote paddling spots.

The Sorrento impressed us in every aspect of our testing, from speed and tracking to overall construction, and even surprised us in the maneuverability category. To be honest, it was pretty difficult to write the ‘cons’ list on the chart at the top of this page.

This was a really popular board with all the testers, as shown by the test results. It paddles really well. It's fast, relatively stable and its stiff and light.

Sorrento 12’6”

Fantastic board! Fast, tracks straight even into a breeze, plenty of buoyancy with a couple of kids on board.

Great board and excellent customer service

It’s a great portable touring board with little flex, Tracks well and has glide a little better then you’d expect from an inflatable board. The fin supplied is pretty basic and just molded plastic and swapping out with a G10 or carbon fin adds better tracking performance. The pump is a smaller volume then I’d expect to be provided with a board that requires such a large amount of air but adequate. My first board delivered had some manufacturing faults that were addressed immediately upon notification, A new board was sent immediately without question with the team at Honu going above and beyond to ensure I was happy. The construction has some minor manufacturing cosmetic imperfections but that said it’s backed by a outstanding warranty to give you peace of mind and based on experience they received stand behind it 100%.

Thanks Mark and the Honu Team, I look forward to many hours on the water.

Jay.

Very happy

I am new to paddle boarding and had only paddled hard boards with the club about 5 times. Living on a boat an inflatable board made sence, easier to store keeping the deck clear. Mark was quick and more than happy to answer all my questions. The board feels solid at 18psi and while I am only a novice it is a board that I will grow into not out of . A few of the other club members have tried the board and all comment on how solid it feels and how well it glides. All in all I am very happy with the service, board and on going support from Mark and the team at Honu. Oh, the bamboo paddle is great too, lightweight and strong. Found it a bit tight to assemble at first but no movement once set up.

Exploring Nth West Tas rivers

This is my second review, I love adventure paddling,be it SUP or ocean ski. The Sorrento is perfect for this,other reviews talk about lightness, quality,all 👍.bottom line is this is far better than my solid sup, handles well even in a strong head wind, go on your knees and paddle, being confident with stability, easy to stand back up on. I could rave on! Oh and I own a number of top paddles, the Honu suits the Sorrento far better ,highly recommend getting both,again quality 👌
