The 2018 Carbon Playita is a medium-length ocean surfer that’s geared towards skilled paddlers. Low-volume rails enhance the Playita’s responsiveness when initiating carves, and its fish tail is sure to grab and lock you to the wave early and generate tons of speed while surfing.
Carbon Construction is a further improvement on our Fusion Construction boards. We begin with our lightweight and durable Fusion Construction, then we take woven Carbon & Aramid that has been compressed under intense pressure to form a stringer and apply it to the top and bottom of the board. The Carbon Playita has the highest percentage of its surface area covered with this material of any board we make, stiffening its rigidity by an unmatched 400%. The result is the closest performance to a hardboard, with the conveniences that are specific to inflatables.
Board Tech Details – We’re obsessed to deliver the best!
The full rocker is responsive and snappy whether you’re carving from the back or walking to the nose. Catch waves from way outside with the speed of the Playa. Learn more about Hala’s rockers.
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.
|4.75” Low Volume Rails
With the slimmest rails, you can dig into the wave and ride the rail all the way down your line.
|4 Soft & Centralized Rigging Points – remove
Soft rigging gives you the durability of our triple reinforced metal D-Rings without knuckle busting. Centralized rigging moves the rigging points closer to the deck pad and can be safer due to reduced space between rigging straps and loaded gear.
| 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.
| 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.
