Rinse off With Clean Water After each Use

Rinsing off residue, debris, and salt water from your board will ensure it stays looking new for years to come. A damp cloth or Magic Eraser will also safely remove any dirt or scuffs that may have occurred while in use.

STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE

Always store your paddle board in a cool, dry place or a shady area out of reach of direct sunlight to avoid bubbling underneath the deck pad and fading of colors.

KEEP OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT WHEN NOT IN USE

The sun can cause the colors of your board to fade over time so it is best to keep your board out of direct sunlight to maintain vibrance in the paint colors.

"Best on the Market"

After drooling over a BOTE board for 3+ years I finally pulled the trigger on a 12' Rackham. The fit and finish is second to none, and it is a fishing machine. It is incredibly stable, allowing much better visibility for sight fishing since I'm no longer worried about falling over like I was in my 14' kayak. Now I'm wishing I hadn't waiting 3 years to buy one!

"Excellent Paddle Board"

Excellent paddle-board. I’m 6 foot, 220 pounds. And, accommodates my size quite nicely. I take the board out on the Florida Intracoastal Waterway where it can be a little choppy and windy. And the board handles great.It has met all my expectations. I’m quite happy and would recommend the board to anybody.
