SUP Rocker Profiles
What Is SUP Rocker?
From the beginning Hala Gear set out to make the highest-performing inflatable SUPs on the market. We think one of the most important SUP performance characteristics is Rocker profile, and each of our four profiles is unique to the design shape (and intended use) of the paddleboard.
Rocker is the upward curve found in the tail and the nose of a SUP (it can be seen best when looking at the board from the side). In some cases, the rocker can run well into the middle of the board's length.
Whether you're looking for maneuverability, speed or both, Hala's precisely designed and manufactured, performance-oriented rocker types outperform the competition.
Hala’s River Rocker curves precisely from tip-to-tail for superior maneuvarability and surfability. Punch big holes, surf small pockets and big river waves, and hop eddy fences like a pro.
Hala’s Surf Rocker features the minimal rise found in the tail of our Glide Rocker and the precise curve found in the nose of our River Rocker. Your center of balance sits farther back to allow the nose to naturally stand tall providing the perfect mixture of speed and maneuverability on the face of any wave!
Hala's Progressive Rocker is designed to be playful in the waves and snappy along the flatwater sections of river. The nose rocker is punchy, the middle of the SUP is reasonably flat, and tail rocker gives you quick directional control. This paddleboard strikes the perfect balance between the sportiness of River Rocker and the speed of Glide Rocker.
Hala’s Glide Rocker features a mellow nose rocker, a flat middle for traction, and minimal tail rocker for optimized glide and speed. Yet, it keeps enough maneuverability for responsiveness in any environment. Feel the speed with our glide rocker.
