Bote Paddleboards

So you first heard about Bote Boards from us about a month ago when we featured them as a fly product newly on the scene. Now they have blown up and I haven't wanted something this bad in awhile. Savings has begun, I shall get a SUP (Stand Up Paddle). Looking at a few brands but Bote is one that definitely has my attention! Check it...

The Birth of a Legend
Founded in 2009 by Magda and Corey Cooper, BOTE's roots were very modest. BOTE literally grew from the simple concept of developing a stand-up paddle board that is designed to be fished from–a board that would justly serve fisherman, surfers and paddle enthusiasts alike.


Create the most versatile watercraft on the market. A paddle board that is lightweight, stable, stealthy and hydro-dynamically efficient for a great paddle experience. The board must be versatile enough to accommodate the lifestyles of fishermen, paddle surfers, and fitness enthusiasts.


By starting with an idea–and a lot of work–the first BOTE was produced in Corey's workshop. While rough around the edges, this board laid the foundation for the next steps. By utilizing the latest in 3D CAD simulation and analysis software, BOTE was able to refine production methods and develop a board that is truly unique while maintaining reasonable production costs.


BOTE recognizes that most US coastlines and inland areas have not been exposed to stand-up paddle boarding because it is a relatively new sport in the mainland US and most paddle board companies focus their marketing efforts towards the already established surfing and paddle boarding cultures. Conversely, most coastal and inland areas have strong fishing cultures. BOTE's ability to meet the needs of both paddle surfing and fishing cultures has bridged the gap and advanced the next evolution of the paddle board.

Be sure to check out Bote Boards via their site and Facebook page! I hope I can get my hands on one sometime soon, definitely an idea I've had in the past that someone else had first (paddle board + fishing).
