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.

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.

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.

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.

RAILBLAZA® ATTACHMENT POINTS
2 cut out sections on either side of the deck pad leave room to easily mount RAILBLAZA StarPorts™. Add on any RAILBLAZA attachments including fishing a Rod Holder, a Camera Mount Adapter, or G-Holds (for paddles, nets and more). Attach them when you want, take them off when you don’t; easy as that

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. Learn more about Hala’s board construction.

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.

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.

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

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.

RIVER ROCKER
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.
