Paddle Sheath

Paddle Sheath

As with BOTE rigid boards, we felt the need to free up our hands with our inflatables as well. The Paddle Sheath mounts to select models. Simply insert the blade of your paddle into the slot and free up your hands for other activities.

Sandspear Sheath

Sandspear Sheath

The Sandspear Sheath is an attachment for select models that mounts directly to the rail at the included mounting points. Place the spike end of a Sandspear through the hole to anchor your board in place.

“The Drift has opened up many previously inaccessible waters for me. It easily fits in a backpack, and I can still carry the rest of my fly fishing gear to reach those hard to get to fish. I've taken it on airplanes and in the back of trucks, down rivers, lakes, and small creeks and it has conquered them all flawlessly!”
