BOTE Paddle Board

BOTE paddle board is a very popular company that makes a lot of different paddle board, both inflatable and hard boards. Besides Stand Up Paddle Boards this company also produces kayaks (even a pedal kayak!), skiffs, inflatable docks and a lot of water sports accessories.

Because their assortment is so big I will only take the inflatable paddle boards and relevant accessories on this page and give an overview of this whole collection. However, in other guides that are more specific to the topics of their other products you will surely manage to find their relevant items.

A lot of their boards have the same name, but have different designs available that also can vary in the size of the grip deck and functionality, but I will mention the different versions per board and show the design varieties.

Included with the purchase of a BOTE Paddle Board

BOTE paddle board offers a good package with every paddle board as you can see on the pictures. Not even everything is visible on the pictures (probably hidden in the backpack 😉), seeing at least a hand pump is included with all boards to inflate them.

One thing I want to recommend everyone is to also purchase a coiled leash when purchasing a paddle board. For some reason none of these packages include one and they are only sold as an extra, but for your safety please always purchase and wear one!
