bote travelinkDetails: The BOTE Board innovators have found the missing link in the new Patent Pending Travelink™ Carry System. Due out late July/Early August, the Travelink™ system was designed to get you to your paddling spot more easily, comfortably and without 'dead arm' syndrome. By simply clicking in the Travelink™ adjustable carry strap to the latch points in the rail of the board, you remove all weight from your hands and carry the board more safely and ergonomically with your shoulders and back. After a few sand dune climbs and gusts of wind you'll wonder how you ever carried your SUP without Travelink™.
