Board Tech Details – We’re obsessed to deliver the best!

 

Glide Rocker 
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.
 
Carbon Construction™
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.
 

All-Around Shape
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.
 

Leash D-Ring
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.
 
 

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.
 

Stomp Pad
A 1.5” stomp pad allows for precise control and maneuverability of your board.

    :

    Straight up awesome board! Had the opportunity to paddle one in CO last time I was out. Love the shape and size of the board. Tracked well in flat water and was super stable when we hit some rapids. Pretty easy to surf too! Probably the broad I recommend to most when they ask for the best all around board. Just a hoot to ride!

    :

    This board does it all. I’ve run rivers up to class III, surfed it in the ocean and toured flat water. The carbon stringer makes it super stiff and it’s durable, packable and fast. I couldn’t ask for more from an “all-around” board. If you’re looking for a single board that shreds in all conditions, this is it.

  3. 5 out of 5

    :

    The Carbon Straight Up has unparalleled rigidity to any other inflatable. The carbon haul adds speed and combine the carbon sheath with the drop stitch technology for the ultimate stiff board. I was able to demo this board to an up and coming WV SUP instructor who needed a board she could travel with for an exam. She aced it.

  4. 5 out of 5

    :

    The Carbon Straight Up was easy to maneuver, tracked well on flat water even when the winds picked up. Definitely a board I’d choose as a one quiver board that I could use on lakes, rivers and for SUP YOGA.

  5. 5 out of 5

    :

    An incredible blend of stability and speed! Performance all around seems like an impossible category, but this board will make you a believer in the fabled quiver killer. The carbon stringer and glide rocker make this board stiff and fast. At 32″ wide it retains it’s ability to glide and adds stability. After paddling it on the swollen class III water of Gore Creek I can confidently say that this board is perfectly at home in whitewater as well. A well executed paddler’s dream!
