"HANDS DOWN, THE BEST"

The HD Aero has been a great paddle board. I have used it from lakes and ponds in Colorado to canals and inlets in Florida. Extremely stable and tracks efficiently. Love the ability to travel cross country with it and be ready for the water within minutes of arriving. I would highly recommend this board for anyone looking for a fishing paddle board.

"ABSOLUTELY LOVE"

I absolutely love my board. I love being able to pack in my board just about anywhere I want. It’s so sturdy and universal. I take both my 3 and 5 year old on the board when we paddle. It’s such a perfect size and the stability is awesome. My 3 year old took a nap the entire second half of our paddle trip!

Great all around performer!

For those of us who can’t afford a different board for every occasion this is one that will do it all. Unlike most things that are multifunctional but mediocre in everything this excels at all. Very happy with my decision to purchase from Bote and this model specifically.

I have another high quality hard board, due to my back issues it is hard for me to balance so I don't use it. I love the sturdiness of the BOTE board and it's light enough for me to carry myself.

Whale shark HD Aero

I’ve been paddling for about 10 years on and off all on solid boards and This was my first time ever riding a Inflatable, it was a little shaky at first. But after about 5 minutes I got the hang of very quickly. It rides very smooth and can take choppy waters. It’s an awesome looking board, a head turner for sure. Setting up and deflating does not take long, 10 minutes max, I’m very happy with the board and want to buy my wife a board next. Only complaint is that it didn’t come with an ankle Leash when it really should have when you pay $1,000. Overall super happy with my board.
