The Bote HD is the board that changed the industry! The HD bow was what really set it apart, making it easier to plow through any chop, staying quieter and straighter on the water. Since then, BOTE has added every feature you can think of, and then some to their flagship board. Paddle holder, Travelink, Tacklerack and more, all standard. Add to that the new Gatorshell Technology, AND included carbon paddle (a $250 value!), and now the best board out there is also one of the more affordable!
