BOTEINNOVATIONS BOTE was founded with the purpose of evolving the paddleboard industry from its surfing origins to a distinct culture built on conceptually simple, aesthetically pleasing and functionally innovative products that appeal to people from all walks of life. From fishing to fitness, we have rapidly redefined SUP by pursuing our mission: STAND APART through industry-shaping innovation, fresh ideas and simplicity to create a product that defines a lifestyle.

Travelink™ The Travelink™ is an adjustable carry strap that latches to the rail of your board in order to help with easier transportation.

10

Bucket Rac The Bucket Rac five-gallon accessory works Receivers

is designed to hold a standard bucket, or KULA cooler. This in the front or back Tackle Rac on Rac compatible boards.

Tackle Rac The Tackle Rac can be used on any Tackle Rac compatible board. It instantly transforms your BOTE board into the ultimate fishing adventure skiff.

Paddle Sheath™

Stashpod

Grab Handle

The Paddle Sheath™ allows the paddler to insert the blade end of the paddle into the slot (located on the bow of the board), freeing up your hands for other activities.

The Stashpod is a convenient storage container with an integrated bottle opener. It’s the best place to “stash” your keys or hold your beer.

Redesigned to be the most comfortable Grab Handle found on any paddleboard. No more numb fingers or weak leverage while transporting your board.

Paddle Strap

BVA

Stakeout Options

The Paddle Strap is an integrated channel on the side of the board with accompanying bungee straps that allow for quick and easy storage of your paddle when not in use.

The BVA foam pad uses the heat embossed “B” logo texture, which is the process of heat stamping the grip texture directly onto the deck pad.

Anchor your board in place with our Stakeout Options. Utilize a “stake” or BOTE’s Sandspear into the mud or sand in order for your board to stay in place.

Bungee Straps

Wheel Rac

Power-Pole® Micro

Adjustable Bungee Straps allow for quick and easy storage of extra gear and are available on all of our board models.

Easily slip the Wheel Rac into the Wheel Rac Receivers and rock & roll. The Wheel Rac’s oversized balloon tires will glide over almost any terrain with minimal effort.

BOTE TECHNOLOGY Years in the making, our new Gatorshell Technology is the next game-changing innovation to be introduced by the Darkroom gurus at BOTE. In our quest to constantly improve upon the products we make, we’ve achieved something truly special. Incredibly strong and stunningly beautiful, our new line of Gatorshell boards are the toughest we’ve ever made.


TOUGHEST.YET.


14


ABRASION RESISTANT An abrasion resistant outer shell means you don’t have to sweat the small stuff, like that time you got too close to that dock.

BEAUTIFUL FIT & FINISH Gatorshell BOTEs are constructed to the highest standards in the industry and feature uniquely beautiful designs on par with our hand-crafted epoxy boards.

GATORSKIN TEXTURED DECK PAD High-quality, heat-sealed multi-textured deck pads feature a unique gatorskin embossed texture only found on Gatorshell models.

SEAMLESS CONSTRUCTION Our proprietary process allows for seamless construction. No cheap looking rubber gaskets or unsightly fissures down the sides of our boards.

INNOVATIVE FEATURE SET Gatorshell BOTEs feature all the innovative features found on our hand-crafted epoxy boards, so you can outfit them the way you want, for the things you like to do.

RESPONSIBLY CRAFTED IMPACT RESISTANT Gatorshell construction is 6x tougher than our hand-crafted epoxy boards giving you the freedom to be, well, yourself.

The advanced plastics we use to build the Gatorshell BOTEs are made from partially reclaimed material. As if that wasn’t good enough, excess material from it’s construction is again repurposed, meaning less waste, and that’s good for all of us.

BOTE TECHNOLOGY

SOUL SEARCHING For years we’ve experimented with advanced materials and came to recognize the benefits of producing a board from advanced plastics – lightweight, strength and durability. Unfortunately, simple plastic is, well ... ugly. At BOTE we don’t do ugly. If we were going to develop a board from advanced plastics, it needed it to have character and soul like the rest of our line-up. With our new proprietary Gatorshell technology we’ve created an advanced plastics board with the look and feel of our classic construction, resulting in another stunningly beautiful BOTE.

m((lleesss)s) Seeaam

SEEMINGLY SEAMLESS A challenge we faced while building boards from advanced plastics was fusing the upper and lower halves of the board without leaving unsightly seams. Most manufacturers simply accept this as the way it has to be. It doesn’t. With our Gatorshell boards, we’ve achieved seamless construction by combining all new materials with ballistics grade composites. The result, a no compromise outer shell that is smooth, solid, and tough…very tough.

16


6X TOUGHER The goal of utilizing advanced plastics is to create a tougher product with increased impact resistance. According to energy impact comparisons, our Gatorshell board achieved 6x tougher construction vs. our hand-crafted epoxy boards. We conducted extensive tests within our Darkroom lab, not only with our own products, but also products from other manufacturers to ensure that Gatorshell outperformed anything it came up against. 6x force was the maximum our equipment was able to measure, which resulted in zero damage to our Gatorshell board.

FLOAT HIGHER Because plastic is less dense than epoxy, our Gatorshell boards are more buoyant as compared to their epoxy equivalent. This makes them float higher in the water for a more comfortable paddle, while also adding increased capacity. BOTEBOARD.COM

BOTE TECHNOLOGY Our AeroBOTEs are not pool toys. The technology behind our AeroBOTEs is second to none. BOTE inflatables transform from a form factor small enough to fit in a backpack into a fully functional SUP in minutes. This system allows for superior ease of transportation and storage. Don’t worry about scratches and dings because the military-grade PVC skin is virtually indestructible. The inner core of our AeroBOTEs has tens of thousands of composite fibers that connect the top and bottom halves of the board and when under pressure create solid board rigidity. So let your adventurous side run wild and take your AeroBOTE with you!

NO POOL TOYS. Don’t allow inferior inflatable boards steal your joy.

20


ABRASION RESISTANT An abrasion resistant miltary-grade PVC outer layer means you don’t have to worry about dropping it in the parking lot or running it into a rock.

BEAUTIFUL FIT & FINISH Our AeroBOTEs are designed to be the best looking highest quality boards on the water. People won’t believe you when you tell them it’s inflatable.

INTERNAL COMPOSITE FIBER CORE The internal chamber(s) are comprised of tens of thousands of composite fibers attached to both the top and bottom halves of the board. This dropstitch technology makes these boards rock solid.

MAX STYLING BOTE developed the industry-leading process of printing designs and textures to increase the aesthetics for our AeroBOTEs. No more boring color blocks. INNOVATIVE FEATURE SET AeroBOTEs feature a staggering array of innovative features found nowhere else on the market. Like our solid boards, you can outfit them the way you want, for the things you like to do.

BRANDED TEXTURE DECK PAD High-quality, heat sealed multitextured deck pads feature a unique branded “B” logo texture, providing unparalleled comfort and traction.

ho is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived, or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed? We could have stayed on shore, in the status quo, played it safe and moved on. But where is the fun in that? We wanted to wander into the storm! The unknown breeds fear and excitement but can also spark some radical change. Change, in our case is embodied by the all new Rover project. So, we decided to make a trip to the Florida Keys with our motley crew and embark on a not-so-harrowing adventure with the main goal of putting the new Rover through it’s paces. Thanks to our pals at Mellow Ventures in Key West for dialing in the madness for us, because of them we all returned as happy campers.

SPIRITUAL

ADVENTURE

o many, yoga is a form of exercising. To others, yoga is a lifestyle filled with morals to live by on a day-to-day basis. In an effort to bring together a group of people to learn and practice the virtues of yoga all while being immersed in nature, BOTE Ambassador TJ Mangrum put together a retreat in Cape San Blas, FL.

A couple of months ago, I was brainstorming an idea that had been on my mind for quite some time.Yoga retreats these days tend to be incredibly expensive with overwhelming travel. To most, this is not feasible monetarily or time-wise. Which is when a lightbulb went off—we have so many amazing state and national parks within driving distance in the South East, so why not create a legitimately affordable and accessible yoga/SUP retreat? And this is where the retreat began to take fruition. When I first considered what I wanted a retreat to be-besides being affordable and accessible, I also wanted to leave the lightest “foot print” in our state parks, as possible. I wanted to offer people space to breathe and exist in nature. I believe, for many of us, experiencing nature in direct support of us can be foreign. Living

solely on the support of the raw ground beneath us isn’t something most people are often able to experience. To be in nature and experience the sun at mid-day and the stars in the evening, can only help with our awareness of how we daily interact with nature and our environment. I know that when I spend even an hour

trip. And I will never be able to thank the people who helped me create

Once I had the boards and destination lined up, I collected the most amazing group of Yoga teachers to facilitate this project with me. Jessica McChesney (everything outdoor/nature loving guru), Erik Brownsword (spreadsheet/ love/Harry Potter enthusiast), Charlie Graham (life enthusiast), Elizabeth Ocheltree (spirituality enthusiast). We planned out every detail of the construction of our retreat. Through their enthusiasm and hard work, we were able to collect donations for food from Patagonia and Suja, as well as Lara Bars to munch on throughout the weekend. These donations helped create an even lower cost for the retreat which enabled us to donate over 50% of our profits to charity. We donated directly back to St Joseph’s Peninsula State Park as well as Cultivate Union, a charity for yoga education. We gave back to what gave to us. During our three day retreat we practiced land yoga on the beach, SUP yoga in the bay, beautiful story time by the fire, meditation on the beach at sunrise, stargazing and meditation under the New-moon at night, SUP adventures around the peninsula, a ceremonial fire celebration, and ate AMAZING yummy food. All under the umbrella theme of Ahimsa. Ahimsa is a principle term used in the yoga community that means nonviolence. Non-violence to anything; nature, others, the Self, etc. We spoke of treating others and ourselves with compassion, grace, and understanding. We asked campers to recognize the vocabulary they use within their own thoughts and how they choose to speak to themselves; to understand and practice Ahimsa in whatever medium they were able. This retreat was a surreal experience for me. I authentically feel as though all of the people, all of the support, all of the magic was deliberate. Everything fell into place with ease and positive, purposeful work. People felt impacted

ADVENTURE

OTE ambassador, Landon Mace travelled the world while serving his country, which only made him appreciate his country, especially his home state of Oregon even more.

With full support from his wife Kelsey, Landon follows his true passion – fly fishing. Landon appreciates the simple things nowadays, like being able to grow out his hair and have a real mustache, but it’s really all about the fish. It’s all become very clear for him. “Before I go to bed, I’m sitting there thinking about fish, when I wake up, I’m thinking about fish.That’s the reality of it. It’s a passion that really just consumes me.” It was a natural evolution for Landon to become a guide on the rivers he knows so well. Now, on any day, Landon can be found wading, casting, tying flies and guiding others who share his passion for fly fishing. Landon doesn’t take for granted the place he calls home. He’s surrounded by everything he loves – his wife, the mountains, and the rivers. He spent years serving his country and now he gets to do what makes him the happiest. That usually involves grabbing his dog and a fly rod, then heading out to chase fish.

FAR

NORTH

ADVENTURE

I

t’s true, getting to the untouched places left in the world takes a commitment to real adventure. When your destination is only referenced by the weather service as a grid number, and can only be accessed by float plane, you know you’re on the right track. Division No. 18 is in Saskatchewan Canada’s far north, and is as remote as it gets. Like, Alaska North remote. It’s frozen over for most of the year, and for most Americans, they’d be hard pressed to point it out on a map. So why go there? Inside Division 18 is Milton Lake, and specifically the Milton Lake Lodge. We heard that it’s one of the best places on earth to fish for Northern Pike, and as far as we knew, we were going to be the first people ever to do that on stand up paddleboards. Everything at the lodge has to be flown in, from food to ATVs...everything. Because of the small cargo area on the float plane, bringing hard boards wasn’t an option, so we packed up the inflatables and headed out. Our plan was simple; fly fish with a local guide and some seasoned anglers, one of them being Rebekka Redd, famed in the fly fishing world, but brand new to standup paddleboard fishing. She expressed to us a desire to challenge herself, and took this one head on. The plan worked, the Pike fishing was off the charts, and Rebekka was killing it. We seemed to land fish after fish. Even the new anglers got in on the action and quickly became enthralled with SUP fishing. You could creep up on these huge pike just sitting on the bottom and they wouldn’t even move. Everyone loved this new perspective that the boards provided. The weather was epic the entire first day, with perfect paddle fishing conditions. We soon learned how quickly that can change. The following few days were completely unpredictable. Sunny skies and fairly warm temperatures would quickly give way to dark clouds, high winds and storms that had us hunkering down for protection from lightening and hail. As harsh as that sounds, it was just all part of this great adventure, and even if I could, I wouldn’t change a second of it. Overall, the trip was magical, almost surreal. I got to escape with great friends, create some awesome new memories, and ultimately take part in a new experience that went beyond myself, and extended to our entire crew. The fishing was incredible, and the people who run the lodge were amazing. Not many people know about The Milton Lake Lodge and Division no.18. I used to be one of them, but now that I do, I’ll certainly never forget it.

FAMILY

ADVENTURE

t’s a challenge. Balancing work and leisure, raising your kids, focusing on the simple things that really matter. For the majority of us, myself included, the struggle to do so is very real. But in reality, it’s

the accumulation of these diverse events that make you who you are. Growing up, I spent a lot of my time at my grandparent’s house in the woods. Playing in the dirt, hunting for food, and spending time with family were not only the basis of how I spent my childhood, but also the building blocks for who I am as a person. As I grew up and moved away to bigger cities and spent more time in the office than in daylight, I began to really appreciate the lifestyle that living in the outdoors offered. Now, with three kids, I realize the importance of exposing them to the simpler life. Teaching them to work with their hands and step away from our technologically oversaturated world is not easy, but I find that when we leave our everyday lives, step off the grid, and just enjoy each other’s company and everything nature has to offer, it brings us back to the fundamental basics of what it’s all about.

TRAVELINKSYSTEM

| TRAVELINK™ SLING Shown with optional Hitchhiker pouch

BOTE board innovators have found the missing link in the new patent pending Travelink™ carry system. The Travelink™ system was designed to get you to your paddling spot more easily, comfortably and without ‘dead arm’ syndrome. By simply clicking in the Travelink™ adjustable carry strap to the latch points in the rail of the board, you remove all weight from your hands and carry the board more safely and ergonomically with your shoulders and back. After a few sand dune climbs and gusts of wind you’ll wonder how you ever carried it without Travelink™. The best part is it’s permanently flush mounted into the rails of the board - when you aren’t using it, you won’t notice it. There is  zero effect on  the  paddling dynamics. Travelink™ latch points can also be used to lock and secure your board. A SMARTER WAY TO TRANSPORT YOUR BOARD.
