    Gatorshell Technology

    Incredibly strong and stunningly beautiful, BOTE's new line of Gatorshell boards are the toughest they’ve ever made.

    For years they’ve experimented with advanced materials and came to recognized the benefits of producing a board from advanced plastics – lightweight, strength and durability. For BOTE's team, simple plastic is, well... ugly. If they were going to develop a board from advanced plastics, it needed to have character and soul like the rest of their line-up. With their new proprietary Gatorshell technology, they’ve created an advanced plastics board with the look and feel of their classic construction, resulting in another stunningly beautiful BOTE board.

    A challenge they faced while building boards from advanced plastic was fusing the upper and lower halves of the board without leaving unsightly seams. Most manufacturers simply accept this as the way it has to be. It doesn’t. With their Gatorshell boards, BOTE has achieved seamless construction by combining all new materials with ballistics grade composites. The result, a no compromise outer shell that is smooth, solid, and tough…very tough.

    The goal of utilizing advanced plastics is to create a tougher product with increased impact resistance. According to energy impact comparisons, the Gatorshell board achieved 6x tougher construction vs. the handcrafted epoxy boards. They conducted extensive tests within the Darkroom lab, not only with their own products, but also products from other manufacturers to ensure that Gatorshell outperformed anything it came up against. 6x force was the maximum the equipment was able to measure, which resulted in zero damage to the Gatorshell boards.



    Because plastic is less dense than epoxy, the Gatorshell boards are more buoyant as compared to their epoxy equivalent. This makes them float higher in the water for a more comfortable paddle, while also adding increased capacity.

    An abrasion resistant out shell means you don’t have to sweat the small stuff, like that time you got too close to that dock.

    Gatorshell BOTEs are constructed to the highest standards in the industry and feature uniquely beautiful designs on par with their hand-crafted epoxy boards.

    BOTE's proprietary process allows for seamless construction. No cheap looking rubber gaskets or unsightly fissures down the sides of the Gatorshell boards.

    High-quality, heat-sealed multi-textured deck pads feature a unique gatorskin embossed texture only found on Gatorshell models.

    Gatorshell BOTEs feature all the innovative features found on the hand-crafted epoxy boards, so you can outfit them the way you want, for the things you like to do.

    Gatorshell construction is 6x tougher than BOTE'S hand-crafted epoxy boards giving you the freedom to be, well, yourself.

    The advanced plastics they use to build Gatorshell BOTEs are made from partially reclaimed material. As if that wasn’t good enough, excess material from its construction is again repurposed, meaning less waste, and that’s good for all of us.



    • BUNGEE STRAPS - Adjustable Bungee Straps provide quick and easy storage of extra gear and are available on all board models.
    • STASHPOD - The Stashpod is a convenient storage container with an integrated bottle opener. It’s the best place to “stash” your keys or hold your beer.
    • PADDLE SHEATH™ - Located in the bow of the board, the Paddle Sheath™ allows the paddler to insert the blade end of the paddle into the slot, freeing up the hands for other activities.
    • BVA DECK PAD - The BVA multi-textured deck pad is heat sealed to shed water and provides plenty of cushion to reduce fatigue and anti-slip traction.
    • GRAB HANDLE - Redesigned to be the most comfortable Grab Handle found on any paddleboard. No more numb fingers or weak leverage while transporting your board.
    • COOLER TIE DOWNS - Tie down points on the deck of the board, perfect for lashing down a cooler (or other gear).
