The Wish List: Hala Atcha 86
The Hala Atcha 86 is a smaller version of the whitewater-class defining Hala Atcha. The Atcha 86 is for larger riders looking for a sportier whitewater board, and smaller riders looking to stomp whitewater. This board features a spring-loaded fin system that retracts upon contact with submerged rocks and then instantly springs back into fin operation. This innovation alleviates the dreaded "supermanning", or flying off the board due to abrupt stops when the fins strike shallow rocks.
