Fun for daze.
With massive, reinforced eight-inch sidewalls, tons of buoyancy, and a weight capacity in excess of 350 pounds, the Hala Daze Stand-Up Paddleboard is built to tackle multi-day river trips, big days exploring the lake, or even a casual evening honing your SUP partner yoga skills. Now, you may be thinking a board with these dimensions is going to handle about as well as an elephant in a pair of overalls, but with a progressive rocker profile, nimble pointed nose, and responsive swallow tail, the Daze behaves more like a rhino in a tutu.
Hala built the Daze with a wide deck for enhanced stability on flat water and to also provide extra space to carry gear during overnight trips. The fixed quad fin setup keeps the board stable whether you're playing in the bay or running rapids, while a removable center fin makes it easy to track across glassy lakes or sections of flat water. The Daze comes ready to go with an easy-to-carry rolling backpack, inflatable fin protectors, and two pumps (one 12V electric and one hand), so you're never stuck trying to inflate the board with just your breath.

This board is new this year, and it's so fun to play with the possibilities of what having a big board can do.
I work at a SUP rental/lessons company, and we have a great time renting out the Daze to groups of 2-4 people. When I teach kids groups, it's always a blast to put 4-5 kids on the board and let them work together to paddle around.
When we had a photographer come to take photos of the kids groups, we knew that he would have no chance of falling off and consequentially ruining his camera equipment on the Daze.
