Lets go paddleboarding!

Keep your fitness on track while enjoying your time in the Heart of Florida’s Emerald Coast!  We all know that stand up paddleboarding can be a lot of fun but did you know that it is also a great low-impact workout?  When taking a spin on a paddle board you will use your entire body water to propel the board.  As you glide across the water your whole body is engaged. Paddleboarding is great for core strength, balance, endurance and let’s not forget to mention how enjoyable it is.  It’s no surprise that SUP is one of the fastest growing watersports in the world and a on a paddleboard is a perfect way to explore the waterways of Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Okaloosa Island!

BOTE Board’s home base is right here on the Emerald Coast and they offer high quality, easy to use stand up paddleboards and gear.  Their top-notch products are known for their stability, innovation and design elements.  They combined the love of paddling and fishing and designed the world’s first fishing specific board!  For avid fishers, BOTE’s motorized ROVER may be a perfect fit.  Interested in inflatable SUP?  BOTE has an inflatable line called AeroBOTEs.  These boards will fit into a backpack and quickly inflate into a fully sized SUP within minutes. Take a moment to stop into one of BOTE’s retail locations in Destin or Fort Walton Beach to check out all they have to offer. Upon entering, you’ll be impressed by the vibrant designs but also the functionality of their products and vast selection of accessories and gear.

While visiting the Heart of Florida’s Emerald Coast take some time to give one of our favorite local pastimes a try!  If you’re a novice or experienced paddler BOTE Board has you covered.  BOTE Board even offers opportunities to try their board styles out at their free demonstrations.  Starting March 6th, BOTE Board demos will be held at Liza Jackson Park in Fort Walton Beach.  Please contact BOTE for more information.  See you on the water!
