“It always strikes me how accessible remote paddling is these days with the invention of inflatable SUP boards. Their performance is stellar and as long as there’s a body of water, you’re dialed. Inflatables are the absolute way to go for adventure/destination paddling and our BOTE boards had us covered–fishing and paddle yoga included!”

– Erin O’Malley, Owner of Sunset Stand Up Paddle

A New Ambassador

Brand new to the SUP scene and the entire family is along for the ride on our new Bote tools/toys. I went with the HD Bugslinger because I planned on doing some fishing modifications when not cruising with the family. Rack system works great for carrying multiple rods. Stability is great. Cooler doubles as a seat on longer days. Given I find myself in shallower waters while fishing, I'm glad I have the thicker skin/PVC. Weight is negligible for me when carrying and provides a lot more confidence if you bump a branch or floating log. Despite the larger size, this paddles and maneuvers well (still feels like a SUP, not a boat). Overall, I'm thrilled. Well done Bote team!

Me and my family have enjoyed our new board, it’s very easy to put away and use. Also we love the design and look forward to making other purchases in the future.

HD Aero Bug Slinger

I moved from a house to an apartment. My HD Gator board was too big to fit in the elevator. I sold it and purchased the inflatable HD Bug Slinger. Great choice. I enjoy the convenience and as always the great quality build of BOTE products. By my measurements the board is a few inches shot of 11’ 6”. That mattered to me as I am 6’ tall but I did not notice much of a loss in stability from my 12’ 6” solid board. The manual pump is OK but I highly recommend getting an electric pump. Get out there!

This board is fantastic! It's so stable and stiff fully inflated. It's just as sturdy as my wife's hd hard board! It definetly exceded my expectations. Thanks again Bote!
