Based off our best selling Classic Straight Up board, this all-around board is aimed towards new SUP adventurers. The progressive rocker creates a fun ride on any water. And being a tad narrower and shorter than the Rival Hoss, the smaller board size of the Rival Straight Up is ideal for those looking for a faster ride and more maneuverable board. It is also optimal for our smaller all-around riders. Fusion Construction makes this board extremely lightweight, durable, and easy to transport. And we take the preparation work out of it, offering our Fusion Construction boards in a straight-to-water package.
Grab the Rival Straight Up and get on the water.
Board Tech Details
We’re obsessed to deliver the best!
● Progressive Rocker
The Rival Straight Up has a progressive rocker that is designed to be playful in the waves and snappy along the river. The nose rocker is punchy, the middle is reasonably flat, and the tail rocker gives you quick directional control, striking a balance between the sportiness of the full rocker and the speed of glide rocker.

Fusion Construction (Fusion Drop StitchTM)
This construction is made with Fusion Drop StitchTM material that is about precision and efficiency. We are able to use less material overall while utilizing a new manufacturing technology and maintain overall durability. Think lean and mean yet lightweight. Learn more about Hala’s board construction.
● Smaller Board Size
Rival Straight Up’s 10’ length and 33” width makes it a dynamic all-around board for those looking for more maneuverability or for smaller all-around riders. Learn more about Hala board sizes and shapes.
● All-Around Shape
The outline of this board gives you the stability to feel confident on any water, with a sleekness that provides speed and quickness. Learn more about Hala’s board shapes.
● Straight-To-Water Package
Like all of our Fusion Construction boards, the Rival Straight Up comes complete with a floating oval-shaft aluminum travel paddle and travel-tough rolling backpack so you have all the necessities ready to head straight out the door and into water.
● 8 D-Ring Rigging Points
Triple reinforced D rings provide rigging points to strap on your gear and keeps it secure as you paddle.
● Leash D-Ring
A triple reinforced leash d-ring is located on the back of your board to attach a quick release or ankle leash to. But remember, using a leash properly requires knowledge and attention.
● Step Flat Handle with Removable Neoprene Handle Cover
We removed a sliver of the deck pad under the handle for a “step flat” feature to eliminate the annoyance of the handle getting in the way while you’re walking your line. And a removable paddled neoprene handle provides comfortability for carrying the board when you are out of the water.
● Croc Skin EVA Deck Pad
The fusion construction boards have a deck pad that is smooth and gentle on the feet, while the “croc skin” texture provides grip and traction.
● Stomp Pad
A 1.5” stomp pad allows for precise control and maneuverability of your board.
● Travel Ready Board
A board that can go anywhere, this board packs up and rolls out with you. Combined with our Grafik Travel Paddle, you’ll have the ultimate, portable setup for adventure.
● Designed in Steamboat Springs, CO
All of our products are designed right here in the Yampa Valley.
