Hala SUP Reviews

Hala SUPHala 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.
