THE LUMBERJACK OF INFLATABLE SUP
Hala Gear is all about rivers. The Hala Gear product range includes boards for downstream runs, boards for park and play river surfing, even boards for jumping waterfalls on something like the sadly discontinued Hala Luya.
The folks at Hala experiment with new ideas. Spring-loaded fins that retract into the board, double-decker inflation chambers, novel stringers concepts, and uniquely shaped river paddles can all be found in their product line. This is a candy store for whitewater junkies who want to play with different toys.
Most of Hala’s boards can be found in our inflatable whitewater SUP board category. To learn more about different type of inflatable whitewater boards, check out our whitewater paddle board buyer’s guide. Hala’s boards are mostly 6” thickness which increases the fun and challenge factor in whitewater. Some of their entry level boards meet the criteria to fit in our all around board and stability board categories though although they are secondary applications for these shapes or sizes. Hala boards are very specific purpose, so go into your purchase planning to add to your board collection and eventually own a quiver of boards for different river features.
