MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. – August 4, 2022 – BOTE, the longstanding leader of innovation in the paddle board, kayak, and water lifestyle space, is proud to announce that its 2023 Rackham Gatorshell Paddleboard was awarded Best in Category, Boats and Watercraft, at the 2022 ICAST tradeshow.
The redesign of the platform, now with the ability to add BOTE’s APEX pedal drive and rudder system, transforms the Rackham into a crossover between a hybrid, pedal-drive kayak and a SUP watercraft.
The Rackham has long been a favorite for fishing with its incredible stability, glide, capacity and long-list of fishing ready add-ons, including BOTE’s Tackle Rac, Bucket Rac, Sand Spear, and Paddle Sheath, among others. Gatorshell is BOTE’s proprietary material used across its range of hardshell paddleboards. Composed of ballistics grade composites, Gatorshell creates a no-compromise outer shell that is smooth, solid, and extremely tough.
“The new Rackham Gatorshell + APEX is the ultimate cocktail of everything that’s great about both SUP and kayak pedal drive,” said Corey Cooper, BOTE CEO and co-founder. “We’ve preserved every element of the Rackham and kept it extremely simple. The only tweaks we made was adding our “clear view” pedal port and connection points for our patent-pending inflatable Aero SUP Paddle Seat. The board literally transforms from a pure stand up paddleboard to pedal-drive kayak in seconds. Simply pivot the APEX drive out of the water, stand up and paddle. We hope the Rackham Gatorshell + APEX will be the flagship of the paddle sports fishing space.”
The full set of details, specs, graphics and features will be available when the new Rackham Gatorshell launches in Summer, 2023.
BOTE is driven by a singular yet broad-reaching mission: To Stand Apart through industry-shaping innovation, fresh ideas and simplicity to create a product that defines a lifestyle. It is this mission that keeps BOTE pushing the boundaries of both technology and style to bring customers a product that not only looks beautiful and performs flawlessly, but that stirs the soul and inspires adventure. Born from stand up paddle boards and now pioneering inflatable kayaks, floating dock systems, and more — BOTE continues to strive for advancement and embrace individuality.

Best Tower Paddleboards For 2022 – Paddling Magazine
Best Tower Paddleboards For 2022 On the market since 2010, you might be familiar with the Tower Paddle Boards name thanks to their stint on ABC’s Shark Tank. On the show, they received the backing of Mark Cuban and have since provided the joy of paddleboarding to over 50,000 customers and grossed over $36 million in sales. Tower paddleboards are best suited for novice paddlers who are looking for a well manufactured inflatable paddleboard (iSUP) at a low price point for general recreational paddling, playing at the beach, and taking a workout onto the water. Tower focuses on durable and rigid inflatable SUPs for the entry level market. Tower standup paddleboards don’t excel for any specific or specialized SUP pursuits. Rather, their all-purpose paddleboards are suitable for a bit of everything: introductory SUP surfing in waves, fitness paddles, SUP yoga, and leisurely touring adventures around the cottage or lake. Tower Paddle Boards is the “home of the $429 paddleboard”, an affordable investment for new paddlers. At this price point, you might be expecting the flimsy, single-layer iSUP common to no-brand online retailers. However, Tower paddleboards are built with a tough double layer of PVC and hold up exceptionally well to the inevitable bumps into rocks and docks. The reason that Tower can offer this low pricing is that they sell large quantities of boards direct-to-consumer through their website rather than through retailers. Their paddleboards are only available online or through factory-direct purchase at their retail showroom in San Diego. The Tower Paddle Boards inflatable board packages are also low priced as they are fairly bare bones—they do not come with a leash or a carry bag, unlike a lot of inflatable paddleboard packages from other SUP brands. Tower’s most popular model is the 10’4” Adventurer 2, which is comparable in quality and price to Body Glove’s 11-ft Performer model sold at Costco for $500 (although Body Glove also includes more bang for your buck by adding in a leash, storage bag, repair kit and dry bag). Jimmy Styks is another comparable SUP brand to Tower, with a slightly higher price point. Tower paddleboards are meant for the vast market of novice paddlers and weekend warriors who are simply looking for a reliable way to get out on the water without too much of an investment. Adventurous or experienced paddlers likely won’t find what they are desiring in board design or features in Tower’s product lineup. Overall, Tower Paddle Boards sells some of the most affordable, good quality paddleboards on the market today in the category of beginner inflatable standup paddleboards. Keep reading to find the best Tower paddleboard for your needs. Our picks: Best Tower paddleboards for 2022 Here you’ll find our picks for the best Tower paddleboards.

Best Inflatable Paddle Board of 2022 for every purpose!
🏆Best Inflatable Paddle Board of 2022 for every purpose! The question people ask me a lot is of course which inflatable paddle board is the best for this year to carry along easily for trips or holidays that is also very stable and suits its purpose.As with previous guides I am not only focusing on the best inflatable paddle board by quality overall, but the best value for money. As most readers appreciate good value (and I sure know I do!) boards should also be affordable, otherwise nobody would be able to purchase them and I would be writing a really long guide with no purpose! For this reason I have written this guide, which is focused on the best inflatable paddle board for 2022 in each specific type. If you are completely new to Stand Up Paddle boarding and have no idea what you are looking for, read “Important factors when choosing a Stand Up Paddle Board” Of course you can use an all-around inflatable paddle board if you want it for multiple purposes. To be fair most things can be done on an all-around board (hence the name), but these things can be done better on a specific board aimed at this purpose. For this reason I have created a top selection of boards for the next types of best inflatable paddle boards: Note: I have made this guide for adults, or at least teenagers. Read about the best paddle boards for kids here. All-Around Paddle Board All-Around paddle boards are, as the name says, suitable for many purposes. This mostly includes relaxing paddling, (smaller) tours and SUP Yoga. Again: there are better boards for touring and SUP Yoga, but an All-Around board will do just fine for this.“But Tom, isn’t every paddle board an all-around paddle board if I really want it to be?” Sure, you could do Yoga on your racing board, but as stability is lower because of the shape I would not recommend it for SUP Yoga. If you really want to I cannot stop you though 😉 So without further ado, here are the all-around 3 best inflatable paddle boards for this year. Top 3 of all-around best inflatable paddle boards for 2022 Bluefin Cruise 10’8″ ✓ 24.9 lbs / 11.3 kg ✓ $499 (currently) ✓ 10’8″ x 32.9″ x 6.3″ ✓ Max. weight 287 lbs. / 130 kg. ✓ Incl. paddle, leash, pump, kayak seat Bluefin Cruise Carbon 10’8″ ✓ 33 lbs / 15 kg ✓ 799 (currently) ✓ 10’8″ x 32.3” x 6” ✓ Max. weight 330 lbs. / 150 kg. ✓ Incl. paddle, leash, pump , kayak seat Goosehill Paddle Board ✓ 20.5 lbs / 9.3 kg ✓ $344 on Amazon ✓ 10′ 6” x 32″ x 6″ ✓ Max. weight 440 lbs. / 200 kg. ✓ Incl. paddle, leash, pump Bluefin Cruise 10’8″ The Bluefin Cruise is an amazing inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board that offers very high quality and complete package that even includes a 2-in-1 fiberglass paddle and a kayak seat, so you can even sit down when Stand Up Paddling.

The Best Tower Paddle Boards in 2022 – DIVEIN
Tower Paddle Boards: The Best Paddle boards from Tower Tower SUP Board Accessories The Tower inflatable paddle board package is quite limited and only includes the bare essentials necessary for functionality. That said, some of these accessories are of good quality and should be considered in the medium range of the market. Specifically, Tower provides a 3 piece adjustable aluminium paddle and a manual high pressure pump. Paddle: The 3 piece adjustable aluminium paddle provided by Tower is a pretty standard one for moving about on the water. It provides a flexible blade that is reinforced with metal ribs, in order to make powerful strokes easily manageable. This paddle is lightweight and durable. It does the job, but the carbon model is better. Pump: The manual high pressure pump is great for blowing up the board in close to 10 minutes to the recommended 11 PSI. However, we would like to see a dual action version with future models of this board as it would make inflation faster and easier. Further Optional Accessories from Tower Tower 3 piece adjustable carbon kevlar paddle Tower 12v electric paddleboard pump Tower iSUP D-ring accessory Tower Paddle Board Features Tower inflatable SUPs are renowned for their durability and stability. The drop stitching construction on all their boards provide a very rigid frame for these boards. The boards are all also made of military grade PVC material called Hypalon, and this multi-layered fabric is what makes these boards so durable. All the Tower paddle boards have a high-weight capacity, supporting up to two adults, making them ideal for recreational use. Although these boards are virtually indestructible the iSUP range are lightweight making them easily transportable to and from the water. They are also known for the softness of the fabric making them ideal for any yoga paddle boarders. All Tower inflatable paddle boards come with a pump, paddle and repair kit. Although the package is not as comprehensive as other brands on the market, notably iRocker, this iSUP package is perfect to get you started. A Tower paddle board is ideal for paddlers who want a recreational or touring board because the stability and maneuverability makes Tower boards perfect for all levels of paddle boarders. The rigid material allows for good tracking and the majority of their boards are fast on the water, ideal for lakes or coastal areas. The most noticeable downfall to the Tower iSUP range packages is that they often don’t include a travel backpack in which to store your board. Why we recommend Tower SUP Boards Tower boards and their iSUP range are undeniably durable and stable, making them ideal for paddle boarders of all levels. Their durability and stability make them easy to paddle on without compromising on speed, track or manoeuvrability. The Tower iSUP packages are comprehensive and include the basics required to start your paddle boarding experience. Tower has a lot of experience in the industry and this shows through their manufacturing of their boards. The materials used ensure stability when on the water and do not compromise on durability. The high-weight capacity makes them ideal for lots of different activities including yoga and recreational paddle boarding. The Tower iSUP range is comprehensive. It has everything from touring boards to boards made for sport. Put the all-around Adventurer board into the mix and they have successfully made a range which caters to the needs of a variety of levels. Tower has a great reputation, their products are made out of the best quality and will last you a long time. We like this company quite a bit. They don’t sell through any retailers, ensuring that all their products are bought directly from them and that they can provide each customer with good quality customer care as well as offering a 2 year warranty for each board.

Something about this SUP just seems to hold the attention of that grimy little herd of backpackers.While I think it’s mainly that little bison itself that keeps my friends coming back to this board, to me, the performance of the Atoll 11’ can hold its own.Being 11’ x 32” and just 21 lbs, the Atoll 11’ provides enough volume on the water for a wide range of paddlers without needing to be heavily built. On top of its accommodating stability though, its tapered shape and single fin set-up allow this SUP to pick up speed without much effort from the paddler, and its lightweight build allows for an impressive level of maneuverability, given its longer length.And while there are some changes we’d make to the included accessory kit, namely the side fins, we’re happy to see Atoll include the essentials to get their paddlers out on the water the day their package hits the doorstep.This lightweight, mountain-esque SUP would make a great choice for paddlers that are frequently hiking into paddling spots, or paddlers that want a little more speed capabilities without sacrificing stability or the ability to bring along gear.We think the Atoll 11′ would be great for paddlers whoPrefer a lighter, more minimalistic SUPWant a combination of speed and maneuverabilityNeed the option to load up with, but don’t want to clutter of excess featuresFrequently backpack into paddling spots and need a lighter SUP with a comfy backpackPaddle in flatwater, slow moving river, and sometimes encounter waves or chopAtoll 11′: Spec SheetMain Category: All Around, InflatableBoard Dimensions: 11’ x 32” x 6”Listed Board Weight: 21 lbsListed Max Capacity: 315 lbsRecommended PSI: 12-15 PSIFins: 2+1 (2 fixed side fins, one removable center fin)Paddle: 3-piece carbon fiber hybridMaterials: Dual Layer fusionPrice Range: mid-highWarranty: NonePerformance Review of the Atoll 11′ Stand Up Paddle BoardThe Atoll 11’ is a lightweight and relatively quick SUPOverall Score: 9.0/10Stability: 9.2/10Speed: 9.0/10Tracking: 8.8/10Maneuverability: 9.2/10Construction Quality: 8.8/10Features/Accessories: 8.9/10Check PricesStability Rating: 9.2/10The Atoll 11’ provides enough stability for SUP novices and paddlers carrying a moderate amount of gear without succumbing to a bulky or heavy feel on the water.I actually brought out a friend who’s newer to SUP’ing to try out the Atoll 11’, and it ended up being one of her favorites for its stability and lighter build.

We hope the Rackham Gatorshell + APEX will be the flagship of the paddle sports fishing space.” The full set of details, specs, graphics and features will be available when the new Rackham Gatorshell launches in Summer, 2023.
