From the darkest shadows of BOTE's Darkroom, comes the HD Gatorshell - our toughest board yet in our most popular shape to date. We combined our most versatile paddling platform with our toughest construction methods to produce this masterpiece of design and innovation. Sporting the same design and standard features, the Gatorshell HD stands apart with its extremely durable outer shell, which is 6x stronger than our handcrafted epoxy boards and just as beautiful. So If your looking for a "one board for everything" that provides superior abrasion and impact resistance, then the HD Gatorshell is for you.
Years in the making, our new Gatorshell Technology is poised to be the next game changing innovation to be introduced by the Darkroom gurus at BOTE. In our quest to constantly improve upon the products we make, we’ve achieved something truly special. Incredibly strong and stunningly beautiful, our new line of Gatorshell boards are the toughest we’ve ever made.
Classic style boards feature exotic wood inlays and the designs are a tribute to traditional maritime themes.
