Paddlers looking for adventures large & small on an extremely stiff iSUP. Those wanting a board that is capable of touring & overnight trips one weekend and a SUP racing event the next but don't have the room for a large fibreglass board.

Sorrento Highlights

An award-winning design that has been Independently tested as one of the most rigid paddleboards on the market. The X-woven material combines 3K carbon stringers and rails that are now welded for ultimate strength & durability. Get all this category-leading performance with a board that still weighs just 10 Kg.

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

Designed for those wanting to paddle further. The Sorrento paddles easily in a straight line while remaining stable enough for all but total beginner paddlers and has enough anchor points for weekend camping tips. This sweet spot of speed and stability makes it the perfect board for riders who want to go far, fast, on their morning paddle, leading a local SUP event or weekend camping adventure.

Crafted from our 5.9" thick X-woven & fused material which is then enhanced by stacked carbon stringers & carbon/ welded rails. The rails are made by using heat+pressure welding to mechanically fuse the inner rail with a 25mm wide strip. Then a 50mm 3K carbon rail is bonded into the rail for added stiffness and protection before the outer rail is finally applied.

Dimensions 12'6 x 30' x 5.9'
Volume 330 litres
Deck Construction X-woven PVC structure reinforced with Carbon/ PVC stringers
Rail Construction Mechanically welded inner rails - Carbon reinforcing - Outer PVC
Maximum Load 140 Kg
Board Weight 9.8 kg (21.6 lbs)

From 2023, the Sorrento board no longer comes with a pump or paddle by default, but rather gives you the choice to bundle them in if wanted. This keep our prices sharp and unwanted products (waste) down. 

Out of the box, the Sorrento includes: 

  • Heavy duty bag-pack made from 1680D Ballistic Nylon
  • 9" Touring ClickFin from Air 7
  • Valve tool & repair kit
  • Safety Leash

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.

3K CARBON STRINGERS

The Carbon II construction uses a 50mm 3K carbon strip under a 150mm viny panel top and bottom. This stacked construction improves the board's stiffness while keeping the design sleek and minimal.

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.

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!

Sorrento 12’6 Review

Excellent, tracks extremely well, very stiff even at the minimum suggested pressure, very light compared to other inflatable SUP’s I’ve it used. It cuts through the water nicely and handles choppy conditions with ease

Great Touring Board

This is a great iSUP. It is very stiff when inflated, and handles well for what you expect a touring board to do--it is fast and balances well. I went through a couple of big washes from considerate motorboat drivers who must have known I was seeing how the board handled, and found it surprisingly easy to stay upright. It takes some effort to turn, but you expect that from a 12'6" board with a big touring fin.

Honu Sorrento

Great board (iSUP). I’ve used on extensively in my SUP lesson business and taken one on a six week road trip from Mount Eliza to Bundaberg and return. Paddled it on the ocean, on rivers & inlets as well as inland lakes.

Most of the time it travelled on my roof racks inflated. I reduced the PSI pressure on warmer days.

Wonderful board

Dont want to duplicate what has been said by others in the past. Realy well presented board, beautifly rigid and pefroms realy well on water. Looking foward to getting it out for some longer paddles as a great additon to the quiver.

Niiice

The Sorrento is a light weight, high quality touring board that paddles very well and has good stability. Nice touches like the straps front and back, kick pad and mooring points. This board paddles almost as well as my previous Jimmy Lewis Sidewinder (carbon) at 14'x27" - and that is impressive. It also is a better design than my previous Red Paddle Sports 11'x30" as the Sorrento has no battens and is even more rigid.
