In 2011, Hala Gear was born on the banks of the Yampa River in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and pioneered by Peter Hall. The company started with a vision for creating whitewater stand up paddling gear and has emerged to lead the way in the design of inflatable SUPs. This vision has since expanded beyond the river to include a variety of SUPs and accessories for every segment of the sport.
As a small company, Hala Gear tries to support and give as much as it can. In 2022, Hala partnered with over 25 organizations and donated more than $13,000 to nonprofit organizations that support local river communities, protect endangered river corridors, and help create paddling opportunities for all.
All Hala boards comes with a 5-year warranty. Hala SUPs were already top-quality, and now they've added an extra seam to the traditional 2-glued-seam SUP system giving you 3 seams. What's even cooler: they mechanically weld the third seam, because glue can fail. Seams are sealed with heat and weight to mechanically bond the seam for life, allowing them to extend their warranty and offer the best SUP on the market.
