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.
KAYAK SEAT COMPATIBLE
Four soft rigging points near the center of the board are designed with the geometry of our kayak seat in mind. Strap on this seat and liesurely paddle along with the help of our Patented Butterknife Paddle.
ROCKER STIFFENING PVC STRINGER
An additional layer of PVC runs through the center of the board to further enhance the stiffness of these boards.
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.
2.5” FIXED FINS
These 2.5” fixed fins make shallow water more accessible and create low draft, high-performance tracking. Indestructible and designed for rugged terrain and unmistakable durability.
8” FLEX CENTER FIN
This board includes our classic “surf shape” fin for good tracking and quick reaction.
A squared off, blunt tail adds stability while still keeping it responsive and maneuverable.
Hala’s Progressive Rocker is designed to be playful in the waves and snappy along the river. The nose rocker is punchy, the middle is reasonably flat, and the tail rocker gives you quick directional control, striking a balance between the sportiness of the River Rocker and the speed of Glide Rocker.
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.
