"LOVE MY BOTE"

After months of searching and researching for the perfect paddle board, I finally decided on the boat flood, and I have NO REGRETS! First of all, it addressed all my issues I had with my previous board. It has extra storage, a bungee for my paddle, and an amazing storage pod/cup holder!! And I purchased the shoulder strap, which make transporting it so much easier! Second of all, it’s beautiful!! The quality of this board is so amazing. The pictures online don’t even compare with how it looks in person. Third, the other brands charge hundreds extra for all the bells and whistles, this board has it all integrated. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with this purchase.

"I LOVE MY NEW FLOOD"

Easily manageable weight. Seems to be very durable and very well made. You can see pride in the work. Extremely stable even when loaded with my gear, cooler, and tackle rack. Paddles smooth, fast, and effortless really. I am extremely happy at this point and time. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.

Everything I expected and more

Its hard to buy a paddle board theses days, no dealers have inventory you can see or demo. Most online retailers have sold out of what you want. So when I decided to buy a Bote it was with a bit of a leap of faith as I live on the West coast and their simply are very few Solid Bote boards on the waters I paddle. They look good on the web, and owners rave about them so I crossed my fingers and went for. I am an intermediate paddler, about 6’3” and 220. The board handles like a dream ! Tracks really well and the glide is great,. I upgraded from an entry level Board works board. It was a good first board. But nothing compared to this. Last summer I demo’ed Surftec and a higher end board works. They were nice but the ride was nowhere near the Bote. I really like having a lot of the features I initially thought I wouldn’t use. But the most important thing i can offer is this. I judge a company not when everything is going smoothly- its when things go wrong you find out how good they are. My board was delivered at 3:00 pm pacific time on Friday of Labor day weekend.The driver opened the door and I immediately saw the box- strapped to a pallet that was broken in two! The outer box was a disaster forklift holes the works. I thought this is going to be trashed. I opened then box the board was 100% perfect! Not a scratch. The paddle however was a mess. I called customer service- 2nd ring they answered. I(6:00 on a Friday before 3 day weekend!) Matt said email me pictures and don’t accept the paddle. He put a paddle in the mail that day i had 4 days later. That’s the service you should expect from a premium brand product! I wholeheartedly recommend Bote and thier products. I subsequently bought about $400 of accessories! BTW- the one drawback of owning a Bote is you have to get used to people asking you about your board! They are real eye cacthers!

Gorgeous Board

Very happy with my hard board, started out with an inflatable but this new board is so fast. Gorgeous manufacturing and such a great company. I ordered last minute and got my board before my vacation. It’s gorgeous and so well built and packaging, customer service and transit company were all first rate. Love this board and would not hesitate to buy Bote in the future. Big fan!

Great SUP

I’m 205lbs with limited SUP experience. I live on the East Coast of S. Florida. I have used this SUP for recreational purposes. Here is my take, the 10”7” Flood is a great SUP. I have tried it in light ocean surf and it is stable and likes to plane on a following sea. I have not caught any large swells as none have presented themselves, but just feeling the characteristics on some light 1ft swells the Flood wants to surf and gets up on plain easily. I tried it in the intercostal waterway and it handled flat water exceptionally well- it tracks straight and is not unsettled by low wake zone boat wake. . The track pad is great for bare feet- however it’s just about as heavy a board as I want to lift onto a roof rack. Note the Breeze is about 10lbs lighter in the same length “big difference” for lighting it up onto roof Racks - we have both Note Boards - the stow area for key fobs leaks water water - so use a dry bag. The Flood carbon paddle is way better than the Breeze paddle - stiffer better shape in the water- Flood turns easier these Breeze- but Breeze is slight more stable (wider). Love them both - they are admired we get compliments an inquiry every time we use them - aesthetically they are both works of art. Loving the SUP life - try it !

Note Flood 12’

Best paddle board I’ve owned. I paddle it, surf it, fish from it, it tracks well in the water and the round Kula, aka cooler, I bought for it makes a great seat for fishing. I love it!
