Strong & Stunning: Meet BOTE's Solid SUP Boards

When it comes to solid stand up paddle boards, finding the best board for you can be a labor of love. It's equal parts exciting and may be slightly overwhelming, given the optionality. The technology in solid SUP boards can vary greatly. Seemingly simple aerodynamic shapes can completely change your experience on the water. Micro design tweaks to a paddle board can transform it from fishing vessel to surfing shredder to all-around recreational rover, and plenty of things in between. So, how do you choose which is the best paddle board for you?

Well, you're asking the right question. And you've come to the right place. At BOTE, the solid stand up paddle board holds a very special place in our hearts. It was our original baby, after all. Sure, we always intended to build a company built around the idea of the "Expandable Platform"—where at the center of each BOTE product, you've got a damn fine paddle vessel, yet sprouting from the paddle-first focus is an innovative collection of add-on features and accessories. But before there were add-on accessories—before there was AeroBOTE™ Technology or badass floating docks or multi-purpose inflatable kayaks—there was the solid stand up paddle board.

Today, our lineup of solid boards is more diverse and robust than ever. With the introduction of our proprietary Gatorshell Technology—which is six times tougher than our epoxy boards and products from other manufacturers—we completely revolutionized the solid SUP board space. And with the appropriate care, your solid stand up paddle board will last for the long haul.

The hard part isn't deciding whether to get a solid paddle board; it's deciding which one is right for you. Whether you are a complete beginner looking to get on the water for the first time or a seasoned long-distance ocean paddle board maniac, BOTE specializes in creating varying board styles to ensure there's always a style that fits into any lifestyle.
