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. Learn more about Hala’s outlines.

Larger Board Size
The larger size of the Hoss makes it a sturdy board, supplying a stable platform for hauling gear and a great fit for our larger 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.

Travel-Ready Board
A board that can go anywhere, this board packs up and rolls out with you. Combined with any of our travel paddles, you’ll have the ultimate, portable setup for adventure.

The best in the business. We’re confident about the capability and durability of our boards. That’s why we’re willing to back it with an industry-leading 3-year warranty. We’ve got your back!

    I jumped on the prototype at Outdoor Retailer Demo last summer. It was the end of the day, and everybody was packing up. I was told about the carbon stringer and rigidity properties it added. With ample skepticism, I paddled out a few feet and started jumping in the center of the board. IN. CREDIBLE. We aren’t Hala dealers (yet), but I can say that this is one of the best, if not the best iSUP out there in terms of rigidity. You won’t be disappointed, but my staff will be if we don’t get a couple of these for the fleet.

      Thanks for the feedback Bill! These boards are awesome. The Carbon Stringer makes them 3x stronger in flex testing than other inflatables. Definitely excited to get some in your fleet.

    The Carbon Hoss is a great board for someone who is looking for an all around board with performance. I have paddled the Hoss on the lake, down the river, ocean and even raced it at the US Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC. This board can do it all. If you are looking to do a multi-day trip it can handle it too. It has multiple d-rings to allow you to strap your gear down if you decide to bring along dry bags for a trip.

    I have had my Hoss Carbon for a little over a year now, and it has been one of the best recreational products I have ever purchased. Being able to roll it up in a bag enables me to take it with me anywhere I go in my small RV. Its allowed me to paddle in areas I would never have thought of simply because I have it with me. Its far more rigid than other inflatables I have tried, and the surface is plenty grippy for the feet. Its also easy to take a lot of food/gear, etc with you since its thicker than most boards, hence more buoyant. It makes a great swim platform as well. Removable/ replacable fins are great, especially when you are going from deep to shallow water. Hope it lasts a long time.

    Finally got out on our new boards this weekend (my husband got the Carbon Straight Up). I am not the strongest paddler and I felt very comfortable on the Carbon Hoss. Did not feel wobbly when standing up! Our daughter (who is 10) thought the Hala boards steered a lot better than the other brand of board we own. I have a feeling we will be getting her a Hala board in the near future and ditching the other. Roller bag is nice. Lighter and easy to carry when inflated. Pumps work well and are easy to use, too.
