Freestyle your way down the local river, playing in pockets and holes along the way. A smaller version of the Atcha, the 86 is great for those wanting to surf in tighter pockets, like a playboat, and is a perfect fit for our smaller riders. This innovative design is exceptionally agile and persistent in whitewater. The Stompbox fin system retracts inside the board upon contact with unanticipated rocks allowing for running the shallowest of rivers year-round. So hop on an Atcha 86. You’ll be amazed at how an 8’6”x34” board IS enough.
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 10 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.
Service and warranty after purchase is handled directly by Hala Gear.
