Home » Who is Hala Gear?


For Hala Gear, 2017 means continuing to push design limits.  We are proud to launch updates to our line knowing that we have the most unique and performance-focused line of inflatable SUPs the market has ever seen.

Since 2011, we have been helping define what an industry-leading inflatable SUP looks like. As our components, materials, and shaping concepts have evolved, we have worked to keep our MSRP in the same range, choosing to add value to the offering each year rather than raising price.

2017 will be no different.  Our Carbon Hybrid Inflatable™ and Glass Hybrid Inflatable™ material additions, combined with our outline and rocker enhancements, mean our performance SUP line has a hardboard feel like no inflatable ever has.

Hala will also introduce Rival™, our board line that uses industry-leading, light and tough Fusion Drop Stitch™, combined with a floating aluminum paddle, and a simple and tough component offering that rivals our more component-rich Hala boards.

Hala is proud to offer our most complete line of gear for 2017, and that means we have something for everyone.


Pick your ride, and paddle on!

    Do the new 2017 boards still have the foot rest for use with the kayak seat attachment? Why did you move from 8 d-rings to 4 soft rings on the Playa?

    Hey Peter,

    This is Chris Cohen, Roddy Beall’s really short friend who used to come to Steamboat all the time. I have been thinking about buying a SUP for a while and I was wondering what you would recommend for someone tiny like me?

    I would really appreciate your advice.

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for reaching out! It’s great to hear from you. I think that the Rival Straight up would be a great fit for you and your height :) It is a great all around and you’ll be able to maneuver and have good control. Feel free to email sup@halagear.com with any questions or more information! Thanks again Chris,
