Heat Score - 86

BOTE Board has released one of their premiere SUP surf boards, The 'Jackalope' in the 2014 line up. The 8'6" mythological legend is available in Chainmail or Native construction types both impacting a stellar composition for performance and durability. The Jackalope is a hybrid of sorts inheriting its name from the 'fearsome critter' to have horns of an antelope and the body of a jackrabbit. A clever name to depict the run you'll get aboard this adventurous platform.

1. New WATERTRIBE Sup Record


Heat Score - 90

The WaterTribe Everglades Challenge is no joke. It's a serious adventure race from Tampa Bay to Key Largo, spanning 300 miles and open to any water craftsmen and women who think they're up to it. Last year Shane Perrin set the bar by being the first stand up paddler to finish, and this year, amidst the sailboards, hobbie TI's, kayaks and canoes, a stand up paddler from South Africa named Justin Schaay finished the race in a new record time of 4 days, 20 hours and 41 minutes.
