The river is calling.
If you say Hala Rado really fast three times it almost sounds like Colorado, where Hala was born and the rugged rivers inspired the design of the burly Rado Inflatable. A dual-layer drop stitch construction and a stable Dynamic Shape make this board the perfect river companion for any expedition. A full rocker will help you shred surf or tackle whitewater, and a swallowtail shape enhances balance. The four fixed side fins help you maneuver through tight corners, and the center Stompbox fin retracts on contact, meaning you no longer have to fear hidden rocks. As you paddle, the EVA deck pad offers a cushioned grip while the raised stomp pad helps maintain responsive control, and a foot index keeps you centered. Get ready for the long haul with grab handles, 12 rigging points, and kayak seat compatibility. Tie down your tent and fishing gear and be pleasantly prepared for whatever the river throws your way — even a portage or two. The Rado comes with a hand pump, travel case, and repair kit, so you can grab your favorite paddle and head for the river straight out of the box.

Great Durable Board
If you are looking for a durable board that will last you a long time, this is it. Its thick PVC is great for people that are a little rougher on their board than others. It is inflatable and rolls up to put in the travel luggage it comes with so you can fly or pack it in your trunk for adventures you will be traveling to. Its rocker profile helps you power up and over waves or through holes for making whitewater river trips more enjoyable. Hala makes great SUPs and this is definitely one of my favorites I have purchased from them.

My dog's favorite board!
I was looking for a board that was rugged enough for the river but could also be used for paddle camping trips. The Hala Rado was exactly what I was looking for and I quickly fell in love. Some of my favorite features are all of the d rings and soft rigging points on the deck, the stompbox fin system, and the rocker shape that helps it handle the whitewater. This is also the board that I used to teach my dog how to SUP. It's unbelievably stable and gave her plenty of room to move around. We both love it!

Monster board, monster good times
If you've been on some other whitewater SUPs, like the Hala Atcha, this thing feels like a beast. But you'll notice this tank is amazingly easy to maneuver, and it's big enough for a huge haul of your gear rigged to both the front and the back. Tons of D-rings in just the right locations, and handles make it so you can bring it up from the water's edge with a buddy without having to take anything off! It still has Hala's signature playfulness, with a full rocker and narrow tail, and it's super easy to balance on. Lots of fun for big water, overnights, SUPing with your dog or small children, or just cruising your backyard run on a fun, stable, playful board.

Do it all!
When you are looking for a do it all kind of board this one is heard to beat. I will say with the rocker profile it is geared a little more towards rivers, which i have the stompbox on mine too. When on lakes it still tracks super well, for how wide it is. The width makes it crazy stable and plenty of platform space to move around. I just took it into the Boundary Waters (multi day paddling trip with portages) and the board was amazing up there! I am so happy I added this one to my fleet of board. I see myself grabbing this one over a some of my others. Just a well rounded board.

Great Whitewater board and touring board
This is board is facile on the whitewater with it's stability and responsiveness. Yet, it's sleek profile makes it perfect for touring on flatwater, in the ocean or lakes. The retractable fin and rocker shape make it perfect for a nice long whitewater ride. I feel safe on this board--it is sturdy and you don't have to worry about the sharp rocks. It feels great to go through rapids and drops. I have to recommend this to whitewater SUP enthusiasts! Hala boards in general are amazing and well built. I feel safe on the rapids with this awesome board!
