The Stuff We Can't Live Without

HALA GEAR RIVAL PLAYA 11

If you’re looking to do more exploring than you are river surfing, the Rival Playa is the call. For one it’s the most stable board we called in (it’s six inches thick and 11 feet long), but it’s also kitted out with ample rigging points for stowage. We also appreciate how easy Hala makes the process. Their “Straight to Water” package includes a rolling backpack with their B-line paddle included. And the “Stomp Pad” midship makes for a maneuverable feel.
