“I am in love with the Hala Atcha! It’s nuts how compact and stable this board is.” – Jacky Dustin
Board Tech Details – We’re obsessed to deliver the best!
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.
QUICK GRAB HANDLES
Located on the side of the board, these handles allow for a passenger to hold on tight or for a quick recovery in the event that you go for a swim.
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!
CORE CONSTRUCTION (TM)
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.

PATENTED 4.5” STOMP BOX(TM) 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.
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.
Gives you two balance points in the tail, instead of one, so the board resists tipping. It gives a bit more bite to your turns while surfing. Allows for water to bail off the top of your board quickly and symmetrically for a controlled recovery in whitewater paddling.
BACKCOUNTRY ROLLING BACKPACK
A rolling backpack designed with each rolled board shape in mind. This roller doubles as an ergonomic padded backpack that can be carried anywhere you go. The straps easily stash for when you check your bag. Fits your board, pump, and collapsible paddle.
Hala’s River Rocker curves precisely from tip-to-tail for superior maneuverability and surfability. Punch big holes, surf small pockets and big river waves, and hop eddy fences like a pro.
