The Hala Straight-Up brings to life the belief that recreational paddlers should be able to find a high-quality inflatable paddleboard with bomber construction in an affordable package. This SUP Kit includes an industry-leading Lever-Lock Adjustable Carbon Paddle, Backcountry Rolling Backpack, Fin, a Hand Pump, and a Repair Kit.
Designed with local Northwest Colorado gems Dumont Lake and Pearl Lake in mind, the Hala Straight Up has extra width at the nose to inspire confidence in all paddlers, providing an ideal balance between stability and maneuverability.
Why choose the Straight Up over our other all-water SUPs? This design inspires confidence in any paddler - even on Day 1 on a SUP. This SUP shape is similar to the Hoss but smaller and it is more stable than the Playa.

1.5” STOMP PAD
A 1.5” stomp pad allows for precise control and maneuverability of your board.
STEP FLAT CENTER HANDLE
A sliver of the deck pad is removed from under the handle so that it “steps flat”. No more of your handle getting in the way while you’re walking your line. A removable padded neoprene handle provides comfortability for carrying the board.
DIAMOND GROOVE DECK PAD
A diamond grooved EVA deck pad allows for maximum traction through the gnarliest of whitewater sections while still being gentle enough for the bare hands and feet in your downward dog.
RAISED FOOT INDEX
Located just before the stomp pad is raised EVA on your deck pad. It is a small, centralized rectangle so you can easily step your foot back to the center of the board without ever taking your eyes off the water.
SOFT & CENTRALIZED RIGGING POINTS
All of our rigging points are now made of high-quality webbing to prevent the knuckle-busting that metal rings cause. And since these webbing rings are designed as close to the center stringer line as possible, you don't have to sacrifice performance when you need to strap heavy gear on board.
INFLATABLE CARBON TECHNOLOGY
You get an elite board that performs like a hardboard with the portability and durability of an inflatable. This is not your run-of-the-mill stringer technology. These boards have measured up to three times more rigid in flex testing than your standard inflatable. Unidirectional Carbon + Fusion Drop Stitch is combined with aramid fibers and compressed at 200,000lbs by an extremely high-end machine in California. But don’t just take our word for it, get on a board and feel the difference! Learn more about Hala’s board construction.
FUSION CONSTRUCTION (TM)
Fusion Bi-Layer Drop Stitch brings precision and efficiency to this construction. Think lean and mean yet lightweight. We are able to use less material overall by utilizing a new manufacturing technology that maintains overall durability. Learn more about Hala’s board construction.
FIXED 2.5” UNBREAKABLE SIDE BIT FINS
This lower-tech, but higher durability setup is ideal for those who have no preference on their fin configuration. These non-removable 2.5" fixed fins are very durable, perform very well in shallow water, and stand up to whatever beating is thrown their way.
8” FLEX CENTER FIN
This board includes our classic “surf shape” fin for good tracking and quick reaction.
A squared-off, blunt tail adds stability while still keeping it responsive and maneuverable.
Hala's Progressive Rocker is designed to be playful in the waves and snappy along the flatwater sections of the river. The nose rocker is punchy, the middle of the SUP is reasonably flat, and the tail rocker gives you quick directional control. This paddleboard strikes the perfect balance between the sportiness of River Rocker and the speed of Glide Rocker.
