Sage Wisdom From Jimmy

Hala is an incredible company to work for because it allows you to pursue your professional goals while still being able to do the things that really matter at the end of the day like enjoying life on the water. We definitely embody the work hard, play hard culture. It's awesome to spend time in and out of the office with such a hard-charging crew that is so passionate about not only the sport but the places and water that we paddle on. You can definitely see this energy come through in all facets of the company and it's definitely something to be proud of.
