Product Highlight Image

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. 

And like all the range of 2022 boards, the Sorrento comes with a Bravo SUPer pump, the best hand pump available. (in our humble opinion )

Transportability and convenience is one of HONU’s biggest advantages, in our opinion. Yes, the SUP is well made, feels very stable and looks great with a modern design and funky colours. But, by making it easy to use and to be able get out on the water with a minimum of effort, we’re convinced…

멋진 여행을 가져다 줄 패들보드

나는 처음으로 Honu sorrento를 선택했으며, 높은 품질과 깔끔한 디자인에 매우 만족합니다. 첫 운행에서는 좋은 경험을 하였으며, 한국에서 바다와 강 그리고 호수를 탐험할 계획을 가지고 있습니다.

A paddle board that will bring you a great trip
I chose the Honu Sorrento for the first time and I am very happy with the high quality and neat design. I had a good experience on my first trip, and I have plans to explore the seas, rivers and lakes in Korea.

Great board !

I trades my 12'6 yolo race board for an inflatable and I am so glad I chose the Sorrento ! It's a beautiful board and the finish feels high-end. I have taken it out twice so far at 15 ish PSI and 18 PSI and the board is very rigid even at 15 PSI. It's faster compared to other inflatables I've tried, and even though it's not the widest board it's pretty stable. I am 140 lbs and I had my 75 lbs German shepherd on the board both times. She moved around quite a bit but so far we've managed to stay afloat. I am very happy with the board so far and can't wait to take it on our next paddleboarding trip !!

Sometimes you can just feel quality and potential underfoot as the beautiful scenery passes by..this is one of those boards..

Before riding the Sorrento, it was just an appreciation of the board graphics, choice of trimmings and the ethos of the current Honu paddle board company. In reality up close this truly is one good looking board (much better lines and graphics than the competition) and hard to find fault with the design work and smooth lines with tasteful cargo bungees and great choice in FCS longboard directional fin.

I have no real experience with inflatable boards, coming from 14’ pvc sandwich construction of the Jimmy Lewis m14 and sidewinder 14’ 25” as well as NSP 11’ 31”. I have to say the Sorrento looks “the goods”, now down to the nitty gritty..

The only thing I feel that needs attention is the main centre handle (fore and aft are fine as they are). The position needs to be placed further aft a smidge to achieve centre balance for my liking, is too long (allowing board drop whilst carrying) but most importantly a little sharp on the edges when carrying any distance and cuts into the hand. Perhaps more rounded incorporating some neoprene to take the edge off? More like the current hard board handles.

Now for the goodness..this board is heaps stable and rigid (I am 5’11” and 90kg, when inflating your gauge will not cut in till 7psi board pressure, so keep going! Maiden voyage for me was only 15psi and was plenty rigid), in fact in cross chop because it is inflatable, I feel offers “cushion stability” allowing your feet to flex into the board itself ever so slightly instead of hard…

Once I ordered my board, it was delivered within days. Great service.

I love the product, very good quality. I am not very strong and can not pump it up with the pump provided with the board.

I will have to buy a battery operated pump, otherwise I cant use my board.

Apart from that, my board is amazingly strong and sturdy. I will be doing some long paddles on it, so it will be well used.
