Gear Up your SUP: The Ultimate Guide to BOTE’s Paddle Board Accessories
From a rack that stores your gear to a cooler that doubles as a seat, BOTE accessories allow for a level of customization not found anywhere else in the paddle board market. Carefully crafted with you in mind, each BOTE accessory allows for more comfort, convenience and utility while on the water.
If you’re new to the sport, it’s helpful to understand the application of each accessory and how it can enhance your paddle boarding experience. Below you’ll find a description each BOTE accessory, why you might need it, and which BOTE paddle board allows for it.
The Ultimate Paddle Board Accessories:
Hands down the most versatile paddle board attachment. The BOTE Tackle Rac was designed with the angler in mind, hence the two marine-grade rod holders. But anyone can appreciate the pegs on either side, which are perfect for hanging your backpack or strapping down gear for expeditions. Creative members of the #BOTENATION have even stuck an umbrella in the rod holder for some much-needed sun protection during a leisurely paddle. Divers rig their dive flags to a pole to give them better visibility.
The BOTE Bucket Rac offers two additional rod holders than the BOTE Tackle Rac. It also snugly wraps the BOTE Kula 5 or a five-gallon bucket, securing it to your paddle board so it can function as a bait well (or cooler or gear storage). Its low profile allows you to utilize it on either the front or back Rac Receivers, a configuration that’s possible for the BOTE Rackham, BOTE Rackham Aero, BOTE Rover and BOTE Rover Aero. Those with a lot of gear will opt for both the Tackle and Bucket Rac.
A must-have for shallow water, the BOTE Sandspear can be used as a stakeout anchor or push pole. To anchor, slide the spike down through the stakeout holes in any compatible paddle board. When you want to creep silently across a flat, turn the BOTE Sandspear around and push your paddle board with the foot end.

A cooler, seat, bait well, rod holder, cast net holder, equipment storage...about the only thing the BOTE Kula 5 can’t do is paddle for you. As the ultimate attachment for any BOTE paddle board, it can be secured either through the BOTE Bucket Rac or cooler kit. NOTE: the cooler kit comes with two straps and a clip for paddle storage, which can be screwed into your BOTE Kula or a wall at home.
The paddle board was never meant to be a land-moving animal. That’s why the Travelink™ Sling is the missing link in getting your board to and from the water without ‘dead arm’ syndrome. Simply click the adjustable carry strap into BOTE’s integrated latch points and you can carry your paddle board hands-free. It’s safer, more ergonomic, and after a few hills and gusts of wind, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.
A leash is second only to a life jacket in importance when on a paddle board. Make sure you’re never separated from your board with this 10’ coiled leash. With a padded velcro ankle clasp and key pocket, it’s where safety meets functionality and comfort.
All you need to use the BOTE Rac Systems with BOTE’s Aero inflatable boards are these receivers. Simply screw them into the receiver plates of rack compatible boards and you’re ready for the water.

BOTE GATORSHELL & EPOXY BOARDS
Small but mighty, the Travelink™ Hitchhiker is a water resistant pouch for storing all the little things while paddling. Quickly attach it to the sling (or just about anything else) with its two velcro straps.
The BOTE Tackle Rac’s best friend, this web is perfect for stashing items while fishing or paddling. It’s the perfect size for a small tackle box and small dry box with room to spare. Or it can keep your shoes high and dry while on your paddle board. Comes with six bungees to securely attach to the Tackle Rac.
it’s hard to beat the convenience of the BOTE AeroPump. Just set the desired PSI, press a button and walk away.
While a hand pump is included with each BOTE Aero inflatable, it’s hard to beat the convenience of the BOTE AeroPump. Just set the desired PSI, press a button and walk away. It automatically shuts off when it’s reached pressure. If you won’t have access to an electrical source, the BOTE Aero Foot Pump also works great and lets you save your arms for paddling.
