1.5” STOMP PAD
A 1.5” stomp pad allows for precise control and maneuverability of your board.
STEP FLAT CENTER HANDLE
A sliver of the deck pad is removed from under the handle so that it “steps flat”. No more of your handle getting in the way while you’re walking your line. A removable padded neoprene handle provides comfortability for carrying the board.
DIAMOND GROOVE DECK PAD
A diamond grroved EVA deckpad allows for maximum traction through the gnarliest of whitewater sections while still being gentle enough for the bare hands and feet in your downward dog.
RAISED 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.
SOFT & CENTRALIZED RIGGING POINTS
All of our rigging points are now made of high quality webbing to prevent the knuckle busting that metal rings cause. And since these webbing rings are designed as close to the center stringer line as possible, you don’t have to sacrifice performance when you need to strap heavy gear on board.
ROCKER STIFFENING PVC STRINGER
An additional layer of PVC runs through the center of the board to further enhance the stiffness of these boards.
BOTTOM D-RING FOR TOWING
Tow your board from the D-Ring rigging point located under the nose. This comes in handy on multiday river trips or for tying your board up when you want to take a break.
PADDLE STASH RIGGING
With one hand, the bungee chord up front conveniently and quickly holds your paddle when you’re doing yoga or reeling in the catch of the day!
FUSION CONSTRUCTION (TM)
Fusion Bi-Layer Drop Stitch brings precision and efficiency to this construction. Think lean and mean yet lightweight. We are able to use less material overall by utilizing a new manufacturing technology that maintains overall durability. Learn more about Hala’s board construction.
4.5” GUMMY CLICK FINS
These gummy side-bite click fins are flexible and durable for paddling shallow, rocky whitewater and perfect for control on flat water or low volume river waves.
8” FLEX CENTER FIN
This board includes our classic “surf shape” fin for good tracking and quick reaction.
A rounded tail allows for an even and quick realease while touring. When surfing you can expect long drawn out turns and speed due to the increased surface area.
RIVAL B-LINE PADDLE WITH NO TWIST HANDLE
The Rival B-Line is the most valuable inclusion paddle on the market. With a carbon shaft, a progressive blade shape, and a now twist indexed upper insert, you just can’t find a higher performing low budget paddle.
