River Surfer / Park & Play Surfboard

6’11” x 32” x DoubleStack™ 3”+ 3”

The 2017 Peño has been completely recreated to be the best park and play inflatable on the market. Whether it’s a long, fast wave or a steep, thrashy hole, the Peño will dominate like no other freestyle surfer.

Ride the thinnest railed inflatable that will carve, perform and freestyle like a hardboard.

Product Description

The Hala Peño is bringing all new elements into action.

The patent-pending DoubleStack™ construction divides the board into two sections giving this high volume board the rail benefits of a hardboard-like surfer. The wider 3” bottom chamber provides an edge to delve into the wave with precision while the stacked 3” top chamber gives you a sturdy platform to base from.

A 32-inch width creates stability as you paddle downriver to your next play feature, but stays quick and responsive in the wave. And a 6’11” length gives you a smooth ride that can take on larger waves while still fitting into those smaller pockets. Pair that with a  full rocker and you’ll have a fast ride on this responsive, ding-free and travel-ready freestyle board.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the “tent” that is created with this DoubleStack™ construction, you will notice upon the first inflation of your Peño, some mild wrinkling on the nose of the board. We recommend that once you inflate your board, place it in the sun for a max of 20 minutes, which will further expand the material and erase the wrinkles permanently.

Leash D-Ring

    The Peño, my go-to river surfer. It’s rigid, responsive, quick, and bomber. Don’t worry about shallow rivers and rocky bottoms with the indestructible 4 and 1 fin system.
    But it’s more than a river surfer, it’s a low volume down river runner for narrow pool drop rapids. Smaller paddlers will love it as their daily river runner.

    I love this board. SUPER maneuverable!! Just a blast to ride. If you plan on hitting any fast moving rivers you should be on this board! Hands down fun in Whitewater. Not great for flatwater. Ride the boards how they are meant to be ridden GET A QUIVER!

    I’m a big fan of the Hala Peno! It had me laughing all the way down the river, making me feel like a little kid again! It’s great for river surfing and for short, smaller paddlers like me. It turns on a dime and is now my go to board for teaching SUP Yoga as I can paddle around my students quickly. It’s still the perfect length for plank pose and a complete blast in rapids!

    The 2017 Peno is the ultimate park and play board. The 3″ rail makes surfing the board fun, responsive and playful while the 32″ width creates a ton of lateral stability for going downriver and goofing around at the whitewater park.

    The Hala Peño is the best inflatable river surfer on the market, hands down! It’s the first inflatable board that I feel like I can really engage the rails for turns. The volume in the tail also means you won’t flush easily. Significant rocker lets you fit in anything from steep, green waves to smaller holes. And the fin box options mean that you can experiment to your heart’s content to find the perfect fin setup for your favorite wave. You can tell a lot of thought went into the design for this board, and like every other Hala board, the construction is bomber. How could this board get any better? When you’re done, you can roll it up into the fantastic travel bag Hala provides and check it in your luggage to your next adventure. Great things do come in small packages!

    Thanks Peter for a very fun and versatile river tool. I am an expert downriver paddlers but this is my 1st season park surfing and I am having a last and progressing quickly. I like the ability to paddle down river as well. Great design and excellent construction quality. Look forward to paddling with you again, too!!! Thanks, Doug

    I have been paddling the Hala Peno for the last 6 month on my local feature and loving it. The wave can change between trashy (more like a hole) and a wave and the Peno handles both conditions. The rails makes it super responsive and easy to carve and break into a wave. Haven’t paddled any inflatable SUP with this responsiveness.

    A pure pleasure to paddle! 5 out of 5!
