Paddling off Waikiki Beach I have run into my fair share of tourists floating on partially deflated blow-up pool toys. Hundreds of yards from the safety of the beach I doubted any of them would have survived a swim back to shore. Pointing to Diamond Head, I would explain that when they cleared the lee of the iconic landmark things could get a little gnarly. My view of inflatable watercraft at that time was that they were death traps for tourists.
Companies like Hala Gear have changed my negative opinions about Inflatable watercraft. Born on the rapids of Colorado's rivers, Hala brings a white water tough mentality to all of their products. Reliable, durable, and packable, a Hala inflatable SUP board will get you to and through your rowdiest of adventures. - Dave Chun
