We had the pleasure of getting out on a SUP for a weekend of car camp action in Colorado’s Flattops and we’ve got a new favorite piece of 4-wheel access camping gear.

Hala Gear hooked us up with their ‘Hala Fame‘ board, which is basically a super-sized model that boasts uncompromising stability and utility on the river, lake, or ocean (*admittedly not a great surfer). The board is specifically amazing for those outdoor enthusiasts that like to throw and line in the water and pull out trout by the dozen.
The board includes multiple “star points” where you can affix their RAILBLAZA® rod holders, coolers, dry bags, and much more. If you’re the type whose less likely to car camp and more likely to go on an expedition down untrammeled waters, the excess size and stability allow for camping gear to be easily loaded and unloaded by the user.
“IT WILL INSPIRE CONFIDENCE IN NEW PADDLERS AND ALLOW MORE SEASONED PADDLERS THE ABILITY TO CARRY DAY’S’ WORTH OF EQUIPMENT FOR EXTENDED BACKCOUNTRY TRIPS”
But what we loved most about the board was the ability to easily fit 2-3 people at once in the lake’s calm waters from our easy-access camping site. This makes the board a great fit for friends and family looking to stay aboard the same vessel during water-based outings.
