Home » About Hala Gear


We are Hala Gear.

We are rigged for adventure.

We believe inflatables are the future.

We believe quality should never be compromised and durability is always built in.

We believe in safety first.

We believe everyone should have access to their local waterways and we support Friends of the Yampa River organization amongst other waterway based conservation efforts.

We encourage you to leave your desks to paddle, play, roam, adventure as much as possible.

We try to keep our HQ fridge full of beer.

We believe that SUP paddling can be for everyone.

We believe that water was meant to be played on, whether it’s frozen or not.

We believe you shouldn’t go down a river without a paddle.

We believe that when you are choosing your new board, go with your gut.

We believe color makes everything better.

We believe dogs make great co-pilots.

Since 2011, Hala Gear has been constantly pushing the boundaries of design and innovation in the inflatable space to make your adventures better.

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,
