1st Annual Five Flags Paddleboard Classic

Last weekend marked the 1st Annual Five Flags Paddleboard Classic, hosted by Coastal Paddle Company. The race was held at The Grand Marlin on Pensacola Beach. It was a little windy, with some chop, which made for a challenging, but fun race!

There were numerous BOTE boards there, and our new 12’6″ Matte White Wraith SS made it’s debut!

BOTE also racked in the trophies! Magda Cooper won 1st in the women’s 12’6″ Elite division on the Matte White Wraith SS; Pete Buzzelli took 1st in the men’s 14′ Elite division on a Matte Black Gonzo SS; Tanner Chechak came in 1st in the Kid’s 1 Mile Kids division on a 9’6″ Monster; and first time racer and new BOTE owner Ashley Chrisman took first in the women’s 1 mile division on her Wraith SS.

A number of other BOTE paddlers placed as well, and everyone did awesome considering the conditions! Check out the official results:

BOTE had a great time and is looking forward to the 2nd Annual Five Flags Paddleboard Classic!


Thank you to Coastal Paddle Company for the results and always a BIG thank you to Paddle Destin for the support and the pictures!
