The Hala Rado is a great board for the larger paddler that wants to use their SUP in both whitewater and flatwater settings. With blended features taken from our river shapes and all-around shapes, the Rado is a strong performer in high volume flows where smaller boards might be overwhelmed. The Hala Rado’s high weight capacity is perfect for overnight camping, extended expeditions, or paddling around the lake with extra passengers along for the ride!
For whitewater, the use of a standard leash is not advised. A quick release leash, helmet and an inherently buoyant life jacket are important safety equipment in moving river water.
The ERS 12VDC 20PSI Electrical Pump will inflate this board to 15PSI in approximately 12 minutes.
2021 UPDATE - As of April 2021, Hala boards are shipping with a yellow Bravo brand pump instead of the red color pump with the Hala sticker shown in the product photos.
The change from STOMP BOX 1.0 to 2.0 requires the entire fin assembly to be inserted and removed each time the board is inflated and deflated. The 1.0 version was integrated into the board, where the 2.0 version on 2021 series Atcha, Rado and Radito boards require inserting the fin box at a specific point in the inflation process and removing the assembly during deflation before folding the board.
Hala includes a ‘Carbon Lever-Lock’ paddle with this board, which will serve as a starter paddle, but under review we did not feel its material composition and weight is representative of a performance carbon paddle. We have written an informational guide on buying a SUP paddle, and we offer exclusive add-on paddle purchase options for Pumped Up SUP customers.
Service and warranty after purchase is handled directly by Hala Gear.
