YOLO on the Bayou

We are brand new to the YOLO family and have a fun story.

I have been dreaming of a SUP board since April 2008 when I saw one in Hawaii.

We live in Lafayette, La and went to a demo event hosted by Pack & Paddle this morning.

Here is the fun/interesting story...
I was on a 12ft Soft Top while my 12 and 10 yr old sons were in a Kayak.
We had a visitor on our demo ride...a 10 ft GATOR!
I was a little nervous, but stayed calm (outside). This demo ride was only my 2nd time on a YOLO Board, a novice at best.
The gator checked us out for a minute or two and then disappeared. I’m assuming that was his seal of approval.
We ended up buying a red one and we played on it for two hours this evening AND can’t wait for tomorrow!!!
Family time at its best – on a YOLO, on the water!
