L2 Outside's Black November Sales Event

Posted by Kat Olinger on

Once Halloween is ended and all the candy is eaten, L2 Outside prepares you for the upcoming winter holidays with our best sales event of 2018.  The time for end of season board sales has come!  All of BŌTE's 2018 fiberglass, epoxy and aero boards are greatly discounted and include a FREE carbon fiber Axe paddle* with purchase.  Whether you're buying for yourself or a loved one, be prepared for excitement all around. 

Let's talk about the Axe paddle.  BŌTE's go-to paddle is the lightest, strongest and most affordable carbon fiber paddle on the market.  With a fixed height and different colors to best suit your board or mood, the Axe weighs just over 16oz with a convex blade length and width of 17.4" by 8.5".  Made from full 3K carbon fiber along with carbon fiber grip, they are typically priced at $244.99 - yours FREE with a fiberglass or gatorshell board purchase

The main differences between a typical fiberglass BŌTE board and a gatorshell board are weight and toughness.  Fiberglass is lighter, making it great for the paddler concerned about paddle time (lighter boards typically do go faster!), and also make it a breeze loading/unloading from your storage or vehicle.  Gatorshell boards have extra layers of epoxy around the entire board, giving it a layer of protection to withstand bumps on rock or docks, even help protect from those pesky hidden underwater tree limbs and such.  Gatorshell is especially great for those paddlers who may be loaning out the board to friends or for use by the entire family at the lake or beach house.  Each fiberglass or gatorshell board comes with a fixed height Axe paddle and removable fin.

BŌTE's Aero boards are all constructed from military grade PVC to take on any challenge you may have to paddle through.  With BVA deck pads, carry handle, bungee at front and rear, plus D-rings for all your attachments - Aero boards are stuper stable and come with all the accessories you need: adjustable paddle, fin, push pump, patch kit, and owners manual (+paddle sheath on all Bugslinger models +sand spear sheath on Rackham and Rover).

Post-Riverbend River Clean Up Sweep

Posted by Kat Olinger on

Many thanks to our Scenic City community!  L2 Outside's June 23rd cleanup event for the downtown river area conjured almost 40 volunteers and several small businesses.

Congregating at 6:30am to plan the day's cleanup, Randy Whorton with Wild Trails helped to assign all volunteers helpful roles and determine which river areas to sweep for different teams.  From 7-9am, several trash bins were filled and miscellaneous items unearthed along the riverbanks.  

During the clean-up, L2 Outside provided 20 paddle boards and ten kayaks for volunteer use, as well as chicken biscuits from Chick-Fil-A.  Generous donations from other businesses included early morning coffee/paddle-fuel from Mean Mug Coffeehouse, and river aids via Wild Trails, Chattanooga Cycleboats and Chattanooga Paddleboards.

Much gratitude for all those who assisted in this year's Post-Riverbend River Clean Up.  We deeply appreciate your time donated and hope to see you on the river again for 2019!     The L2 Crew

Tennessee River SUP & Kayak River Clean Up

Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 6:30 AM - meeting at L2 Outside, 131 River Street

Hello River Friends-

Just like you, we love clean rivers. The weekend following Riverbend we are stoked to host a river clean up project.

On Saturday June 23rd we will need 25 or more key volunteers to assist in a 2 hour river clean up campaign. We will send teams out from public launch under Market Street Bridge to go upstream and downstream to sweep the shoreline and pick up any litter that is in the water. L2 Outside will be donating 25 stand up paddle boards and 10 kayaks to assist with this project.

Please RSVP via the event page, located here. This allows us to track an expected headcount and manage supplies. This is a great way to clean our local river, get some sun, burn some calories, and help conserve the best asset of the River City. All you need to do is RSVP and then show up.

P.S. We will have FREE Chic-Fil-A biscuits for all volunteers. Thanks for making a difference!

Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM (EDT)
Public Launch under Market Street Bridge - River Street, Chattanooga, TN 37405

All those borrowing boards/kayaks from L2 Outside will want to arrive at our storefront about 6:30am for safety video watching and safety waiver signing.
