The innovative leader in water sports continues to grow with an immersive community-driven retail experience

BOTE, a longtime leader in innovation in the stand-up paddleboard, kayak and aquatic lifestyle space, today announces the grand opening of its newest retail location in the paddling paradise of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Featuring BOTE’s iconic black and white flagship retail design on the outside, packed with eye-catching patterns on the inside, this new location embodies the brand’s personality and intense commitment to next-level style. Combine that with its location in the heart of water-obsessed Fort Lauderdale, and what you have is a new hub for water lovers from all walks of life.

Adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean and known for its beaches and shipping canals, Fort Lauderdale is an ideal location for BOTE’s latest flagship store. The 3,600-square-foot retail space, a 100-year-old building with high ceilings and wood beams, immediately envelops you in a sense of what the BOTE brand stands for while making you want to get out on the water. With BOTE’s full line of stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, docks and more, customers won’t have a problem getting from the shop to the surf the same day. Whether you’re looking for a beginner’s stand up paddle board or a seasoned pro looking for the perfect kayak for fishing, BOTE retailers have you covered.

“We are pleased to open another flagship location, and in such a watersports-loving place as Fort Lauderdale,” said Zack Eckert, BOTE’s vice president of sales. “One of the best ways to experience BOTE is by visiting one of our retail stores, especially with the extensive knowledge of our staff and the community we warmly call BOTE Nation. We like to think of it as an extension of the total immersion experience, where customers will visit the store and learn about their other resource to enhance their love of paddle boarding, kayaking and the aquatic lifestyle.”
