BOTE Sea Isle City
The Piola's started paddling the beaches of southern New Jersey in 2002 when they opened their first store T.I. Kayaks in Ocean City. The couple introduced the sport of kayaking to thousands of beach-goers and locals who were looking to step away from the grind. One year later and 40 miles south, Chuck and Tricia opened their second store in Stone Harbor, NJ changing the name to Harbor Outfitters. Today Harbor Outfitters has 3 stores and 2 paddle centers along the South Jersey coast in Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Avalon and Stone Harbor, NJ.
“Being together on the water as a family and community is our passion; we want to share our enthusiasm of coastal living with people both near and far. Life on the water is simple and organic; it's what keeps us motivated and stimulated to better ourselves and the world we live in.”
Fast forward to Sept 2007 when the sport of paddleboarding came from Hawaii to the North East & into our lives. And so the love affair continues. Chuck and Trish, along with daughter Adeline, have been serving customers and friends for 15 years as an outfitter and are currently celebrating their 10th anniversary offering the sport of paddleboarding. Currently, the couple is happy to open and announce a brand new, unique paddleboarding experience: Bote Sea Isle City!
“As a family and community, we enjoy surfing, paddling, sup yoga, touring, and sup fishing. With the Bote products we can put families and friends on comfortable, beautiful, and innovative products creating memories that will truly 'Stand Apart'. Bote Sea Isle City will take our customers onto the sandy beaches of Townsend's Inlet and beyond where our story began and continues.
Be Water, My Friend,
Chuck and Tricia Piola
