John Amundson started his paddleboard company, Amundson Hawaii, after 30 years of shaping surfboards. Amundson paddelboards are built for a whole range of styles including all around, race, yoga, touring and cruising, and a few women specific models. The all around paddleboards are designed to be super comfortable to paddle, very durable, and affordable.

Amundson Spark paddleboards are a great value because they use the Fusion-Tech molded technology of their higher end boards but at a really affordable price. These boards sport a full length EVA deck covering including the rails. The are multiple plugs for attaching tie-downs, one on the nose for hooking up a tow line or anchor, and two plugs- one on the tail and one in front of the handle for attaching your leash.
The rails on the Amundson Spark boards are also covered with Gator Skin material for added protection against scratches, dings and accidents in general. In addition, the Spark Series boards have a very comfortable Easy-Carry handle that makes picking up and carrying your board pretty painless.
Fusion-Tech uses a waterproof EPS foam core that is pre-molded to the shape of the paddleboard before it is put into the laminating mold. This ensures that the board’s skin is completely bonded to the core allowing for a more durable and consistent quality paddleboard.
