"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!

Aero HD Bugslinger

Incredible Paddleboard. Use it in lakes usuall but ran the Colorado River last weekend which was low and not so much as a scratch from multiple rock hits. Amazed @ it's durability. Love the fact that it's compact so I can keep it in the truck and paddle board on a whim when free time is found.!

Love the whale shark design on my new HD Aero 11’6” inflatable paddleboard. Not only does this board handle well, is made of the highest quality, but it also has this amazing whale shark design which I love!!! Easy to pack up and transport, easy to carry anywhere! Can’t say enough good things about Bote, this is my second purchase, and I’m a customer for life!
