Hala’s glide rocker features a mellow nose rocker, a flatter middle for speed, and just enough tail rocker for responsiveness in any environment. Feel the speed. Learn more about Hala’s rockers.
You get an elite board that performs like a hardboard with the portability and durability of an inflatable. This is not your run of the mill stringer technology. These boards have measured up to three times more rigid in flex testing than your standard inflatable. Unidirectional Carbon + Fusion Drop Stitch is combined with aramid fibers and compressed at 200,000lbs by an extremely high-end machine in California. But don’t just take our word for it, get on a board and feel the difference! Learn more about Hala’s board construction.
The outline of this board gives you the stability to feel confident on any water, with a sleekness that keeps you moving quick. Learn more about Hala’s board shapes.
Smaller Board Size
The Carbon Straight Up is a dynamic board that is great for those looking for more maneuverability or for smaller riders.
8 D-Ring Rigging Points
Triple-reinforced D-Rings provide rigging points to strap on your gear and keeps it secure as you paddle.
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.
One Front and One Back Rubber Handles
Carry this board easily with the help of a friend to and from the water while all your gear stays secured.
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.
A 1.5” stomp pad allows for precise control and maneuverability of your board.
A board that can go anywhere, this board packs up and rolls out with you. Combined with any of our travel paddles, you’ll have the ultimate, portable setup for adventure.
