Product Description

This is the ultimate fishing and expedition board. With new cut out sections on the EVA deck pad, you can attach RAILBLAZA® fishing StarPorts to hold your fishing rods.  8 rigging points are now soft and centralized to hold down loads of gear without sacrificing performance and improving safety. And they are also strategically placed for our adaptive paddlers to have custom security.

On either side of the Fame are two additional rubber handles for your extra rider to grab onto. Float with confidence on a variety of water with our Core Construction™ built for rugged environments and creating a well respected, stable platform. Plus the Fame’s slimmed down an inch in the ol’ waistline, making it 36” across, providing a more responsive board. Climb on the Hala Fame and cast out to your next destination.

Fun Fact: Hala FAME =  For All Members of the Earth. The Fame was created for an adaptive athlete who is a good friend of Hala Gear Owner, Peter Hall. The triple enforced rigging points and high stability of the board gives the opportunity for more people to experience the joy of being out on the water.

Board Tech Details – We’re obsessed to deliver the best!


Progressive Rocker 
Hala’s progressive rocker is designed to be playful in the waves and responsive along the river. The nose rocker is punchy, the middle is reasonably flat, and the tail rocker gives you quick directional control, striking a balance between the sportiness of the full rocker and the speed of glide rocker.

Core Construction™
These board can take a serious beating and you can keep on cruising with our burly Double-Layer Drop Stitch material. How do we make our boards so rugged? A second layer of thick, liquid PVC is poured over the raw drop stitch material for the best abrasion resistance available. Burly material for a burly board on your burly adventure. Learn more about Hala’s board construction.
36″ Inch Width
By taking the width of the board in, we’ve increased maneuverability without sacrificing stability.

A squared off, blunt tail adds tons of stability while the rocker keeps it responsive and maneuverable. Learn more about Hala’s Shapes.

RAILBLAZA® StarPort Friendly
2 cut out sections on either side of the deck pad leave room to easily mount RAILBLAZA StarPorts™. Add on any RAILBLAZA attachments including fishing a Rod Holder, a Camera Mount Adapter, or G-Holds (for paddles, nets and more). Attach them when you want, take them off when you don’t; easy as that

8 Soft & Centralized Rigging Points
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.

Two Additional Rubber Side Handles
For additional riders to hold onto and makes it easier to get on and off the board.

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.

Unbreakable Fixed Side Fins
Fixed side fins are indestructible by design and created for rugged terrain and lasting durability.
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.
3-Year Warranty
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 had the pleasure of using this board on two occasions: Once on a day trip down the Wood River in Rhode Island and on a 3 day, 55 mile trip down the Battenkill River from Manchester, VT, to Greenwich, NY. I can say with certainty that Hala boards are built to last. Our team spent 3 days scraping rocks, dragging the boards over downed trees and slamming into boulders with no noticeable damage to the boards.
    On the Hala Fame I had numerous dry sacks and a cooler filled with ice, food and canned refreshments. The total weight with me on top approached 300lbs. The board handled as well as a 300lb, almost 12-foot SUP can with no center fin (we decided against using fins in an effort to improve maneuverability and reduce draft). I was able to maneuver around trees and boulders while feeling very much in control.
    The Hala Fame is super comfortable and stable. It will inspire confidence in new paddlers and allow more seasoned paddlers the ability to carry days’ worth of equipment for extended backcountry trips. Versatility is where the board really shines; I can see this board fitting well with families, anglers, white water and river paddlers and of course as an amazing beach toy. Get out there and paddle one, you will not be disappointed!

    The Fame is a great stable board for anyone looking for a SUP fishing board, overnighter gear hauler, and even a running whitewater. I have used the Fame to do all and I am very impressed how well it performs to be such a large board. I also use the Fame to teach whitewater SUP lessons to my students who are struggling with balance on the river and it brings them confidence immediately! The Fame is a large board but the progressive rocker allows the board to be very maneuverable when its loaded down with gear or just being used in whitewater.
