When can I get another one?
Great sturdy and stable board that I feel like we can take anywhere!
I bought the Rado after the other Hala board I wanted was out of stock and I have to say that I am pleased I have this board in my arsenal. It's a great size for my husband to join me on the water and we will be putting this board to good use with some overnight trips we have planned in the future. All the extra rigging points are great to have for tying down coolers and other camping and fishing gear. The construction of this board is very sturdy and we both feel very stable on the water whether its flat or moving. I have also stolen this board for my SUP yoga classes and I feel completely solid throughout the entire class.
Hala SUP and Great Service
I've purchased two Hala SUP's from the CKS Main Street in Buena Vista, Colorado over the last three years. My first was the Carbon Hoss and second was the Rado. The staff has always be extremely helpful and very well versed with the Hala brand. On my first purchase, I didn't know anything about the SUP's and this store took time to educate me and take me through all the necessary items needed for a safe SUP experience. After I got it home and gave it to my son for his birthday I immediately regretted my purchase... I should have bought TWO!!
Fun days and big adventures!
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!
Hey Buckley, thanks for the review! The Hala Rado is truly a do it all expedition board!
