  • Aggressive nose & tail rocker
  • New Honu SUPer bag-pack
  • Hardboard-like surfing performance

IDEAL FOR

Paddleboarders wanting a surf-specific SUP that can perform as close as possible to a fibreglass board. For those who want a capable board to take on far-flung surfing adventures. 

Bondi Highlights

Surf SUPers will love the shape and rocker line that produces a 4" thick board, emulating the performance generally expected from hardboards. A pure surfing SUP with a Twin+1 set of Volan fins and a hard rail edge that, combined, helps the paddler take off and turn with ease.

When setting out to design the new Bondi surfing SUP, the goal was to produce a no-compromise board that would perform as close as possible to a fibreglass equivalent. More than 18 months in development, the new Bondi is for the surfing purist, with every last detail, down to board-specific finboxes designed to produce a board capable of handling surf of any size with confidence.

Available in two sizes, 8'8 and 9'5 and just 4" thick, constructed with our X-woven material with Honu's exclusive Welded Carbon Rails. Both sizes feature an aggressive outline and rocker that is further enhanced by a hard rail edge that finishes just in front of the Volan keel fins. All working together to make steep take-offs and powerful bottom turns an easy undertaking.

SUP surfers will appreciate the time spent in developing the Futures-compatible fin system that includes performance fiberglass fins. The twin+1 setup is designed to provide the surfer with flexibility to tune the ride. Start with all three fins for the most stability, but removing the centre fin, leaving in the twin keels provides a fast and loose ride more advanced paddlers will love.

Heavy duty 1680D wheely backpack with easy access internal storage pockets for safe and secure accessories storage.

4 YEAR TOTAL CARE WARRANTY

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.

WELDED 3K CARBON RAILS

Exclusive to Honu, this complex construction uses heat+pressure welding to fuse the inner rail with a 25mm strip. Then a 50mm 3K carbon rail is bonded under the outer rail layer for ultimate stiffness & durability.

X-WOVEN & FUSED DROP STITCH

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.

UNIVERSAL FIN SYSTEM

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.

TEXTURED DIAMOND TRACTION

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.

Loving my Bondi 9'3

I'm really loving this board. I'm super happy with the rigidity of the board. This is my first inflatable SUP and I really wanted something that felt like a hard board (which is what I'm used to) and the Bondi does the job well. It's super evident how much care and pride has gone into this board, from the design elements to the high quality construction. I couldn't be more stoked!

GREAT BOARD - TICKS ALL THE BOXES

After doing some research on the best inflatable SUP for surfing, the Bondi ticked all the boxes for quality, lightness and rigidity. Mark was very helpful in my early days with the board and the family will be able to have a Summer of fun.

Love it!

I’m a petite 5’1” female weighing <110. I wanted a board that’s light weight and maneuvers well. My first board was huge and although it also worked, I prefer my Bondi. My husband is of average size and he found it scary and harder to balance on than the 11”6’ board we both got initially. We are still fairly new to SUPing having just started in July. We’ve mainly used our SUP in calm reservoirs but also in some larger lakes and bays with some small waves. I’m bringing my board with me to Hawaii next month to try SUP surfing! So, this board can work as a versatile all around board for a petite person who wants the option to level up. It may not be good as the first board for an average size male beginner.

an inflatable surfboard that is rigid and thin enough to truly surf!

I’m fortunate that I stumbled upon Honu, and their friendly and competent leader, Mark.

The Bondi 9’3 is exactly what I hoped it would be!

I thought the soft and convenient carry strap might be in the way, but it helps find the centerline when I jump to surf stance without having to look down. And it’s a place to push my front foot against. The tail has a comfortable step deck that provides great traction.

The paddle is a work of art! Bamboo blade fused to carbon 3 piece. Most ergonomic handle I’ve held! Ultra light.

I’m 145# and wanted to go as small as possible so I asked Mark about the 8’6.

He said “Nah mate. That for kids. You want the 9’3”. He was right!

This board is FUN FUN FUN
