The river is calling.

The great thing about the Hala Rado is if you say it really fast it almost sounds like Colorado, the state that contains the rivers that inspired this Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard. This paddleboard has full rocker to help you punch holes in the water, and a swallowtail design that increases stability on flat or moving water. 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 breaking a fin on an unexpected rock. As you paddle, the EVA deckpad absorbs impact to reduce your energy loss, so you can ride for longer without fatigue. The Rado comes with a hand pump, a car pump, a travel case, and a repair kit, so you can grab your favorite paddle and head for the river right away.

Great all-rounder and a beast for rapids

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this board as a multi-purpose board from running solid WW to family trips on flat water (not sluggish on flat water and tracks well and maintains speed). For white water, it is stable yet responsive and the rocker makes is easy to keep your speed and maneuver in rapid. It is also ideal for longer trip (have done about two overnighters) and takes the load and still remains easy to paddle.

Family loves the board with even my 7 year old being able to paddle and turn it.

One of the great features on the board is the Stompbox. I paddle a lot of shallow rivers and the fin retracts easily enough not to snag on rocks.

Bombproof and versatile!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It is simpler to ask, "what can't you do with this board?" Because the answer is, "Nothing". The Rado is the board that can hang with you when you want to paddle everything. Gliding on flatwater with a lunch cooler two kids and the pup? No worries. Paddling 72 miles of whitewater and amazing views in the Yampa Canyon? Gotcha covered! It's built for abuse, dropped it on the asphalt? No problems here, still ready to paddle. Smashed the fin off a rock? No need for concern, it's still there. The best part is, having all these burly characteristics it still has performance built into every design feature! A triumph of SUP engineering!

Rocks a River and Floats a Family

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Hala Rado is a fantastic paddleboard to run a river, float your family, or fish for trout in a high mountain lake. In addition to being super stable in whitewater, it still has great maneuverability and has the great addition of the stompbox fin in low water environments. When not on the river I take my 4-year-old out on the deck for floats on our local body of water. I also frequently take this board fly fishing. It also is great for overnights with lots of rigging for any expedition on water. If you're looking for an all-around great paddleboard for rivers AND lakes - and looking for an absolutely indestructible and innovative design, this board is for you!
