Hala Gear has been making impressive inflatable SUP boards since 2011, and they always seem to push the current envelope of design in the paddle board world. Hala SUP boards are known far and wide for their high-performance, great stability, and unique designs.
Hala’s current SUP lineup consists of boards ranging in size from 7’6″ to 14′. Their SUP line is pretty versatile, and includes paddle boards for whitewater, flat water, racing, expedition, surfing, touring, and fishing.
Hala Gear offers one of the best SUP board warranties. They cover all of their boards for 3 years against manufacturer defects. The company is based out of Steamboat Springs, CO, so they’re super easy to deal with.
Hala only uses the best materials on their boards, and while Hala SUPs may cost a bit more than many other boards on the market, their top-notch quality and awesome 3 year warranty make the extra investment well worthwhile in our opinion.

Hala SUP Reviews
Hala Atcha 9'6"
Measuring 9’6″ x 36″ x 6″ and weighing in at 29 pounds, the high-perfomance Hala Atcha is an extremely stable and responsive whitewater SUP that is pretty tough to beat.
This board is the big brother of the little Hala Atcha 86, and is also available with Hala’s optional StompBox fin system.
Hala Atcha 86
The 8’6″ x 34″ x 6″ Hala Atcha 86 is a super fun surfing and whitewater board that is very easy to maneuver. It has a nice rocker profile and a 5 fin setup for great tracking.
The Atcha 86 is the smaller sibling of Hala’s Atcha SUP, and it can be equipped with the optional Hala StompBox fin which retracts whenever coming into contact with rocks.
The Hala Luya is a board that is designed for the most serious of whitewater paddlers who need a bulletproof SUP that will perform insanely well when things get rough.
Measuring 8’8″ x 38″ x DoubleStack 6″ + 3″, the Hala Luya has a unique raised rail design that offers increased bracing and stability for the most intense of conditions. To check the current price of the Hala Luya whitewater SUP, click here.
Designed for ocean and river surfing, the Hala Gram is an attention-getting board with an extremely unique shape. Measuring 8″ x 30″ x 4.75″, the Hala Gram features a nut shape with a swallowtail and low volume rails for the ultimate in wave riding performance.
This board is a perfect example of Hala’s dedication to innovation and cutting edge design. Click here to get more information and the current price of the Hala Gram.
At only 6’11” x 30″ x 4.75″, the Hala Milligram is a super compact little board that is designed to be a ton of fun for surfing. Whether you’re tackling whitewater or surfing ocean waves, the Hala Milligram’s unique shape and bombproof build quality result in a board that performs insanely well and is built to handle whatever you can throw at it.
The smaller dimensions also makes this a great choice for kids and smaller paddlers. For more details on this Hala model, click here.
Measuring 11’11” x 42″ x 8″ and weighing in at 42 pounds, the Hala Daze is obviously not your typical inflatable paddle board. The Daze is essentially a large stand up raft that can be loaded down with tons of gear or used for tandem paddling fun.
This super stable SUP makes a great whitewater or fishing rig, and the swallow tail gives it great maneuverability.

Hala SUP Warranty Information
Hala does not offer a return policy for refunds or exchanges.
Hala’s iSUPs have a 3-year warranty, which makes them stand out. Their 1-year warranty on paddles is as good as it gets as some only offer 60 – 90 days. We find their warranty to be simple to understand and we like that the information was easy to find on their site. As a bonus, if you register your board online with Hala, you get a chance in their drawing for a new paddle of your choice!
A notable service is that non-warrantied, damaged products (wear and tear, misuse, or neglect) may be repaired at a nominal charge. This is an uncommon offering, but welcome!
