Larger Whitewater / Downriver Playboard

9'6″€ x 36″ x 6″€

Hit your line as you stomp whitewater on a stable board that is playful by nature. The Atcha, the original board that defined whitewater inflatable SUPs, is perfect to play your way down a whitewater descent.

It’s a great fit for larger paddlers and those looking for more stability. Catch steeper waves and navigate the river in a whole new way. It’s the best downriver plus “surf on the fly” board ever made, brought to you by the company that is leading the charge in whitewater SUP and inflatable technology. Like the price? Good.

After obsessive prototyping, the 2017 Atcha finally satisfies our desire to make the best even better.

Paddle the revamped 2017 Atcha, updated from the board that won the
2016 SUP Connect Gear of the Year award.




A design so good, we had to make two!

The 9’6 Atcha is perfect for those seeking more stability in a responsive and sporty design while also offering a good platform for larger riders. Just like the 86, the Atcha is designed to intuitively correct itself when your line is thrown. How? The center of control is condensed by a unique outline and precise balance point.

The full rocker gives you punchy playtime without nose diving. And with one simple step, sharp lines of the swallowtail have you surfing from the back. Bring along gear without compromising performance with our 6 rigging points that are now soft and centralized and give you the choice of gear location. And your run can go undisturbed with the Hala patent pending retractable Stompbox™retractable fin.

This board is full of design surprises to make your adventure better.

Board Tech Details – We’re obsessed to deliver the best!


Full Rocker 
The full rocker curves from tip-to-tail and combines with the 9’6 platform to make this board punchy in whitewater and playful for surf on the fly. And it is ridiculously responsive regardless of where you stand on the board. Punch big holes, surf smaller pockets, and hop eddy fences like a pro. Learn more about Hala’s rockers.
Core Construction™
These board can take a serious beating and you can keep on cruising with our burly Double-Layer Drop Stitch material. How do we make our boards so rugged? A second layer of thick, liquid PVC is poured over the raw drop stitch material for the best abrasion resistance available. Burly material for a burly board on your burly adventure. Learn more about Hala’s board construction.

Larger Board Size 
The 9’6 provides a solid platform in a playful design, perfect for larger riders and those wanting more stability. Learn more about Hala’s board sizes.
Unique Outline 
This gives you one precise center of control when combined with the rocker. The outline tapers from the nose to the widepoint, allowing for reduced leverage on the front of your board. Smaller shoulders create more directional control and prevent you from pearling. And the tail steps down aggressively so the board stays agile and easy to sink and rise — no “tank ass”! Learn more about Hala’s outlines.

Precise Balance Point
A board that intuitively corrects itself. The widest point of the outline, near the back, meets the rocker’s natural balance point for an exact center of control. It makes the board extremely responsive and allows you to surf the tail with one quick, easy step back.

Sharp Outline Swallowtail 
Gives you two balance points in the tail, instead of one, so the board resists tipping and gives a bit of more bite to your turns while surfing from the back. Learn more about Hala’s Shapes. Learn more about Hala’s outlines.

Patent Pending Stompbox™ Retractable Fin
No more supermanning off your board! The fin retracts into the board upon contact with unanticipated rocks for an undisturbed run, allowing you to paddle the shallowest rivers and creekiest lines, year round. See the Stompbox™ in action here.
6 Soft & Centralized Rigging Points
Rig your gear closer to you on the deck pad for heavier loads or choose to place lighter loads near the front.
Soft rigging gives you the durability of our triple reinforced metal d-rings without knuckle busting.
Centralized rigging moves the rigging point closer to the deck pad and can be safer due to reduced space between rigging straps and loaded gear.

D-Ring Rigging Point Under The Nose
Tow your board from the D-Ring rigging point located under the nose. This pushes the force and weight up to make towing easier and faster.

Leash D-Ring
A triple-reinforced D-ring is located on the back of the board to attach your leash onto. But remember, using a leash properly requires knowledge and attention.

2 Side Cloth Handles
Quickly grab your board and get back on when you swim.

Foot index 
Located just before the stomp pad is raised EVA on your deck pad. It is a small, centralized rectangle so you can easily step your foot back to the center of the board without ever taking your eyes off the water.

Stomp Pad
A 1.5” stomp pad allows for precise control and maneuverability of your board.

Travel-Ready Board
A board that can go anywhere, this board packs up and rolls out with you. Combined with our Grafik Travel Paddle, you’ll have the ultimate, portable setup for adventure.

3-Year Warranty
The best in the business. We’re confident about the capability and durability of our boards. That’s why we’re willing to back it with an industry-leading 3-year warranty. We’ve got your back!
