Josh Collins has now been paddling for over a month, making his way into the East Coast of Florida. His mission, to raise awareness for TBI and PTSD, has been set in motion and is beginning to make headway. Although he has been hit by the flooding in Louisiana, gale force winds, and storms that have produced 6+ foot waves, Josh is keeping his head up and moving forward.
Many city goers are under the impression that standup paddle boarding depicts an incredibly calm, slowed down lifestyle, which does not seem fathomable in the hustle and bustle of urban areas. Despite this belief, BOTE Photographer, Sean Murphy, took a trip to Detroit to show that urban paddling is for anyone and the best view is from water.
We sat down with Rob McAbee, BOTE Creative Brand Director, to see how he designs some of the most unique boards in the industry and learn a little bit about his creative process and the future of BOTE.
In an effort to use our boards for as many activities as possible, our Creative Brand Director, Rob McAbee, went on a trip to explore hunting and fishing on our inflatables through an untouched region of Florida.
