Rigged for Adventure
Hala Gear, born on the banks of the Yampa River, started with a vision to create gear for whitewater stand up paddling and has emerged to lead the way in the design of inflatable boards. This vision has since spread beyond the river to offer incredible SUPs and accessories in every segment of the sport.
Launched in 2011 by Steamboat Springs athlete and schoolteacher Peter Hall, Hala Gear designs and produces a line up of stand-up paddleboards and accessories that deliver performance, durability, innovation, and quality.
Through the years, Hala has led the charge in whitewater SUP and inflatable technology. With multiple patents and designs that define categories, Hala's boards ignite unique adventures and are used worldwide to push the limits of SUP.
Steamboat Springs, CO has proven to be the perfect grounds for growth since the beginning. The Yampa River and a dedicated crew of local paddlers keep the brand reaching for the next level.
Thanks to our amazing and supportive local community and a growing base of people that love to paddle, Hala has grown exponentially over the years, including their retail shop and brand showroom - Hala GearSpace.
Located on Yampa Street in downtown Steamboat Springs, Hala GearSpace sells and rents SUPs and a plethora of raft and kayak equipment for the paddling lifestyle. We are so lucky to have one of the best ‘town runs’ in the entire United States, right in our backyard and we have unlimited access to whitewater, surf holes, and flatwater - allowing us to test and become very in touch with our gear.
