Description

The Carbon Straight Up is a wildly popular board that combines all-around dimensions with glide performance and rigidity that is unequaled by its competition. Smaller paddlers find this speedy setup ideal for everything from cruising across flatwater to easy whitewater. This year’s Straight Up has been redesigned to be even faster and more rigid than previous versions with narrowed shoulders and a lengthened carbon stringer. Have the need for speed in a versatile setup? The Hala Carbon Straight Up is the board for you!

"If you are or hope to become a serious paddler, the Hala Carbon Straight Up is worth the investment and will last through years of adventure." - OutdoorGearLab.com

More Info

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.

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!

INFLATABLE CARBON TECHNOLOGY
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.

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.

SQUARE TAIL
A squared off, blunt tail adds stability while still keeping it responsive and maneuverable.

GLIDE ROCKER
Hala’s glide rocker features a mellow nose rocker, a flat middle for traction, and minimal tail rocker for optimized glide and speed. Yet, it keeps enough maneuverability for responsiveness in any environment. Feel the speed with our glide rocker.
