Founded in 2009 by Magda and Corey Cooper, BOTE's roots were very modest. BOTE literally grew from the simple concept of developing a stand-up paddle board that is designed to be fished from–a board that would justly serve fisherman, surfers and paddle enthusiasts alike.
Create the most versatile watercraft on the market. A paddle board that is lightweight, stable, stealthy and hydro-dynamically efficient for a great paddle experience. The board must be versatile enough to accommodate the lifestyles of fishermen, paddle surfers, and fitness enthusiasts.
By starting with an idea–and a lot of work–the first BOTE was produced in Corey's workshop. While rough around the edges, this board laid the foundation for the next steps. By utilizing the latest in 3D CAD simulation and analysis software, BOTE was able to refine production methods and develop a board that is truly unique while maintaining reasonable production costs.
BOTE recognizes that most US coastlines and inland areas have not been exposed to stand-up paddle boarding because it is a relatively new sport in the mainland US and most paddle board companies focus their marketing efforts towards the already established surfing and paddle boarding cultures. Conversely, most coastal and inland areas have strong fishing cultures. BOTE's ability to meet the needs of both paddle surfing and fishing cultures has bridged the gap and advanced the next evolution of the paddle board.
