It's an undeniable fact that humans love being by the water. No one really knows why (though I like to believe it's because we evolved from a walking fish, and being by the shore makes us feel closer to our roots). Why humans like being in and/or on the water is still a mystery. We're not great at swimming, we can't breathe underwater, and we can't see predators that could be out to get us. Still, we persist.
Personally, I love being out on the water, kayaking, boating, or floating aimlessly on a pool noodle into a busy shipping lane on the St. Lawrence River. If, like me, you also enjoy water, you should check out BOTE's Labor Day Sale on kayak and paddle board bundles.
For a limited time, you'll be able to save 10% on a bunch of inflatable kayaks and paddle boards that also come with a slew of neat accessories like carrying cases, coolers, stands, and more. I own an inflatable BOTE and can tell you, straight up, these things are made to last. I've taken it through barnacle-riddled mangroves and into the mighty ocean. It's never punctured and holds air better than a blimp. Check out the kayaks & paddle boards below and grab yours from BOTE before they sell out.
