“An inspiring board that will take you to new adventures.”
The Expedition Eco has been designed in collaboration with Norm Hann, a coastal expedition leader and Great Bear Rainforest conservation paddler in Canada. This board has been built to explore coastlines, lakes and rivers. It is a stable and powerful board that you can load up with overnight gear to take you on your next adventure. Norm’s ongoing input into the features and design of this board come directly from the years of experience and thousands of miles of multi day expeditions, distance races and numerous coastal adventures.
One of the things that attracted Norm to the Sunova brand was the use of traditional wood materials and their incredible attention to detail and design. The Expedition Eco is made using Paulownia Wood which is a tree that is native to SouthEastAsia and is the highest strength to weight ratio hardwood on Earth. It’s also fast growing and is plantation grown in many parts of the world making it an eco friendly wood and the ideal material for building the expedition board which has to stand up to the demands of coastal expedition life. Wood has a completely different feel when you are paddling it, providing that connection to something naturally made.
Using a combination of natural materials and new design technologies, Sunova is making some of the highest performing boards with the lightest, strongest and toughest constructions. Double vacuum, fully wrapped sustainably sourced wood sandwich boards.
