SUP + Playboat = Peno

Whether it's a long, glassy curler or a steep, munchy frother, the Hala Peno Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard specializes in handling play park surf waves like a boss. Taking a note from the banana-shaped playboat designs common in the kayaking world, the Peno is fully rockered, so it's highly resistant to nose-digging. Besides having the slashability of a hard board, the Peno also features Hala's Core Construction, so it'll shrug off wear and tear when you're dragging it over rocks to surf Corner Pocket in Durango's Santa Rita Park. Surf's up!

Surprisingly stable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I expected this board to be squarely until I got out on the wave. AT 210 pounds it had plenty of float and slid easily over the eddy line. Even more surprising was how I was able to paddle back into the eddy when I blew off the wave. The peace of mind knowing if I hit a rock or shot it into the rocks and It would be ding free built huge confidence. Great for kids to learn on as well.

Inflatable with rails!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been paddling the Hala Peno for the last 6 month on my local feature and loving it. The wave can change between trashy (more like a hole) and a wave and the Peno handles both conditions. The rails makes it super responsive and easy to carve and break into a wave. Haven't paddled any inflatable SUP with this responsiveness.

A pure pleasure to paddle! 5 out of 5!

This board is great for getting into river surfing or progressing in the sport! I love it because no matter the conditions, shallow, rocky, I don't have to worry about breaking my board. I love taking it to the Montrose Whitewater park and surfing! Such a great board and very unique design!
