Airlie highlights

A high-quality, performance board made to fit smaller people and kids perfectly. Made using the same X-woven and fused drop-stitch all the Honu boards use and crafted into a shape, size, and weight that will help confidence and fun on the water. Highly suggested to pair with an Element Junior paddle for the ultimate kids' SUP package.

The Airlie is an inflatable SUP for smaller paddle boarders. Designed for anyone under 60 Kg's, the Airlie is an all-rounder paddleboard best suited to flat water cruising through to small waves and runners. It's construction, materials, and shape produce a board that is ultralight and easy to manoeuvre in the water.

This inflatable SUP adopts the same shape as our larger 10'6 Byron. In addition to the outline and 4.7" thickness, the Airlie has some tail rocker, which provides stability in choppy waters and capability in waves. Like it's bigger Byron Cousin, the Airlie is capable or performing in a range of conditions that will provide confidence and natural skill development for its riders.

The Airlie is constructed with our X-Woven & fused drop-stitch material found throughout the Honu range of inflatable paddleboards. The structure of this material is different from standard double layer fusion boards and results in boards that are significantly lighter and more rigid. Honu boards are constructed to such a high standard that they now come with our market-leading 2+2 warranty, providing you with assurance for 4 years after purchase.

The Airlie 8'6 does not come with a pump or paddle by default. Instead, you have the choice to bundle them in if needed. This keeps our prices sharp and unwanted products (waste) down. 

Out of the box, the Airlie includes: 

  • Heavy duty bag-pack made from 1680D Ballistic Nylon
  • Bravo 9" dolphin fin
  • Valve tool & repair kit
  • Safety Leash


We will repair or replace your board, new-for-old, if there are any manufacturing issues within the first four years, including loose seams, faulty valves, or traction pad delamination.


Multiple layers of woven drop stitch are fused during the manufacturing process, where the polyester threads running through the vinyl are crisscrossed, similar to carbon fibre, making it light & stiff.


A universal fin system allows the paddler to try different fins to fine-tune the board's performance across various conditions. It also allows for quick replacement should the need arise.


Combining the tactile feel of a diamond grove with the grip of an alligator pattern provides the paddler with a confidence-inspiring platform that feels soft yet solid underfoot.

Perfect kids board that will last them into adulthood

Perfect size for our 8yr old. Super light so easy for him to carry, and time/effort to pump up is reasonable. He can get it started and we finish it off.

Have already taken the board out a few times since christmas and there’s been no issues.

The bag Is generous in size so you can add towel and change of clothes if needed.

We also bought the kids paddle which is the perfect size and fits in the bag (also comes with its own case too!)

We’ve got some higher-end brand SUPs in our collection, and friends have the cheaper entry level ones. This board sits nicely in the middle for price, but definitely up there for quality.

All round, we are very happy with our purchase and glad we spent just a little more for quality. Well worth it.
