Without question, this is a great board that anyone would enjoy having on the water. It’s extra wide, stable and is great for a wide range of paddlers. However, there’s still a question of whether or not to purchase. Sadly, Bote’s own reputation creates an issue here since they are known for having so many optional attachments, such as paddle holders, Scotty mounts and the like. It seems like they were tasked with making a “normal” SUP and did a fine job, just nothing special.
