"LOVE IT"

This is my third BOTE paddleboard and I Absolutely love it along with all their products. The flexibility and small footprint when stored is amazing and the stability is awesome especially compared to the gator shell boards since I sold my truck. It’s up and running in minutes and you will love it too.

"AWESOME FLY FISHING SETUP"

I've had a handful of trips to get this thing broken in and I am very pleased with it's performance. This is my first SUP and this one is more stable than expected. I like all the attachment points for coolers, and accessories. Makes this really easy to get setup the way I want it. Definitely recommend!

Great Board for larger paddler

While a little on the heavier side, it is a great board. I'm ~265 and am completely stabile on this board in open water. We used them for the first time in the keys on several back country paddling trips and couldn't be happier. The Rackham Aero, takes just a little longer to inflate, but It's great to paddle. Only thing I wish it had was an additional D ring at the front like my HD does to tie a rope to, rather than having to tie the rope around the handle.

Solid Board

I’m on the heavier side (280lbs) and I load the board up with my cooler and fishing gear. Even with all that weight it’s solid and super stable. I take out on the inter coastal and flats and fish for hours with no problems. Love this thing, I’ve tried a few others and they just aren’t stable once you put a lot of weight on them. With this that’s not a problem anymore. Love it!!!

Zero Core!

I love it; probably even more than my sailboat!! I also bought the XL chair as well and reviewing the specs, my hypothesis was correct... they fit together perfectly. I live on my sailboat at a local hotel and marina resort in Redondo Beach, CA and everyone wants to check it out and hear more. I'm the retired special operations guy tooling around marina with his Malinois pup on a wicked cool BOTE sit-down paddle board. I tell everyone, it requires and works zero core! LOL. Thanks for the amazing products and can't wait to see what you guys dream up next. Cheers! Duncan and his no name dog

Rackham Aero

This thing is crazy stable. I've had it out on windy days with 2 labrador retrievers that are constantly moving and have never once felt the least bit unstable. I'm 6'3" and 225 lbs so finding a good fit for me wasn't easy. I highly recommend this board for anyone looking for stability and a good weight capacity.
