The Full Review

I took the BOTE Traveller stand up paddleboard on a 14 mile trip up the Willamette River. It responded well, it likes a faster current. It was smooth and fast with good edge control. The sport would be great for anyone who's looking for adventure are wanting to do a little more distance and carry more gear.

The Good:

Lots of room for storage. The great handle for carrying in contact points for shoulder strap. Cuts through the water really well when weighed down.

The Bad:

A little heavy to carry, the paint scratches easy.

The Bottom Line:

An awesome board for adventure.
