The Hala Luya ( 8’8 x 38″ x 6″ + 3″ ) is our big water / whitewater board. Featuring an industry-first shaped inflatable rail using our patent-pending DoubleStack™ Construction. The innovative construction features inflatable shapes like chines on a kayak for whitewater maneuverability, surfability, and enormous stability. The Hala Luya has the shaping capabilities of a hard board mixed with the myriad advantages of an inflatable. If you are looking for whiter water, bigger drops, and a board that lets you progress further than ever before, then Hala Luya, you’ve found your board!

+ Full – length traction pad
+ Raised stomp pad at the tail for control
+ Reinforced stainless D-rings for rigging
+ Perfect rocker profile for agility and surfability
+ Removable 4” side bite click fins – quad set up
+ Flexible, 5th fin in an unbreakable fin box. Retracts into board upon contact with rocks
+ All Hala boards use the toughest drop stitch available
+ Due to size, this product may incur an extra fee for airline travel, depending on how well you pack, and how nice the airline employee is feeling. :).


Fins Center: 4″ Retractable Fin, Side: 4″ Click Fins, StompBox™

• PSI – Performance Shape Inflatable™
You want your board to perform at the highest level possible so the versatility can match your appetite for adventure. Precise rocker and shapes make the board more fun, and they take more time and money to create. We are willing to throw down for that.

• Precise Sidewall Reinforcement
Our sidewalls use two PVC layers specifically manufactured for superior air holding. Unlike typical PVC tarpaulin, the specialized sidewall material features internal fibers coated in liquid PVC before incorporation with the outer PVC layer, making the layers more durable and resilient than ever before.

• Fin
Now you can choose to remove your side fins, and can use any tab-style fin with this box. Click in – click out, no tools needed. Click it in for flat water or surf, lock it down with grub screws for whitewater use.

• StompBox™
The first-ever spring-loaded fin system that retracts upon contact with submerged rocks and then instantly springs back into fin operation. This innovation alleviates the dreaded “supermanning,” or flying off the board due to abrupt stops when fins strike shallow rocks.

• Raised Foot Index
A central index that lets you know where your foot is on the board, and allows you to find the stringer lines for optimal control and balance.

• Travel-tough Rolling Backpack
Designed in house by Hala Gear, the board bag gets a new look and improved features.
Rolling wheels make transportation easier, re-designed shoulder straps and hip belt result in more comfortable carrying of the board. Improved zipper outline make packing your board up less of a hassle.
