Gear Spotlight: BOTE’s Rackham

BOTE just released this brand new board at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City last week. They are really pushing the market with what accessories a SUP board can offer.

Combining our best selling 12′ HD with the advanced features of our 14′ Ahab, the 12′ Rackham is the most versatile paddle board we have ever offered. Featuring displacement hull technology, the Rackham paddles effortlessly. The recessed standing platform and thick bow keep the paddler and gear high and dry…And speaking of gear, the Rackham sports a capacity of near 400 pounds. Stow your paddle in the Paddlesheath®, your fishing rods and tackle in the Tackle Rac®, and stake out via two thru holes–One of which is Power Pole® Micro compatible. -BOTE

The Rackham will be available in four different editions: Classic, Native, Realtree and Bug Slinger. This will be a great board for piling all your gear on and going out for an adventure.

The greatest feature on the board is the Paddle Sheath. I’m hoping this little feature will  be on many boards in the future. It appears to be a quick easy and way to store your paddle while you do something else. It can be a real struggle to figure out where to put your paddle so it doesn’t float away while you’re resting. As long as this feature works as well as they are advertising, its going to change what we look for in a board.
