The Straight Up is for the paddler looking for a traditional SUP shape – it’s your “Straight Up” SUP shape. The Straight Up is the great board for your lake workout and exploration. It’s the perfect choice for smaller paddlers and people looking for the feeling of a classic SUP board. The traditional shape surfs well, loves the river, lake, and touring, and whitewater.
The Straight Up inflatable stand up paddle board is for the paddler looking for a traditional SUP shape – the “Straight Up” SUP shape! The Straight Up is quick, agile, maneuverable, and yet still is quite stable and rigid due to the 6″ thickness.
At 33″ wide, the Straight up inflatable stand up paddle board is a more sporty and slightly less stable alternative to the 35″ Hoss BT. It’s sporty and fun for whitewater (more agile than the Hoss BT), and more universal than the Hala Atcha – it’s a great family board for the lakes, family, whitewater, raft trips,
fishing, and multiple riders.. The tip-to-tail traction mat makes this a perfect SUP board for yoga!
But there’s more! This board is the smart alternative to a sit on top kayak when you combine this board with the kayak seat and the Butterknife.

Bigger was just the first piece of the puzzle – it solved stability, and enhanced the inland paddling experience, but didn’t allow us to maneuver quickly enough.
For 4 years, we have been prototyping shapes and rocker profiles, finding the perfect blend of stability and agility that we call our Progressive Shape Inflatables. From flat water to whitewater to river surfing to beach surfing, you will feel the design differences that make Hala inflatable SUPs stand out.
Hala’s Rocky Mountain headquarters gives us a unique angle for designing paddle gear. Whether stomping big whitewater, doing yoga with friends, or surfing and touring your favorite water, Hala boards are built to let you live your adventure.
We use and abuse every piece of equipment we make, and we spare no expense to make sure your Hala Gear lasts. We use unbreakable fins and fin boxes, triple reinforced D-rings, and the highest quality drop stitch and PVC. Innovation is key, and we love to push the limits. Our versatile designs open up new ways of paddling your water. The Butterknife and optional kayak seat allow you to explore the water in your own way, and the plentiful rigging points let you load up to cover the miles.
We use the highest caliber material in manufacturing our boards. We take the extra steps to reinforce our boards in key places so that they are as rigid and functional in your application as you need. They are the most fun and responsive inflatable boards you will ever ride.
We are so confident in our construction methods, that we give the best warranty in the industry. Tour operators and rental hubs have used our bomber inflatables. The boards have been exposed to sun, rocks, elements, animals and people of every size and shape. They have been dropped, dragged and smacked.
