YOLO Board has teamed up once again with Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort for the 3rd Annual YOLO Board Mileage Builder Series.

The race event consists of a series of four endurance-building races that take place from May to August, with race paddlers competing for the champion title. All events will be held at YOLO Board Adventures at Baytowne Marina.

Scheduled race dates (weather permitting) are May 25 (one mile race), June 15 (two mile race), July 20 (three mile race) and August 10 (four mile race). There’s also a 1 Mile Fun Race and Free Kids Race at each event.

There’s a one-time entry fee of $85 per racer for the four race series, which includes a complimentary event t-shirt, four pre-race clinics, refreshments and other swag. Single race entry is $35 per person the day of each event. Registration starts at 8:00am followed by pre-race clinic at 8:30am and races at 9:00am. All events are open to the public and provide spectators the chance to cheer on their favorite racers and be a part of the world’s fastest growing watersport.

Sponsor Abita Brewing Company will generously provide beer and root beer to all racers!

For info, call 850-622-5760 or visit YOLOboard.com.


Bryan Kennedy and Forrest Williams are working on a fun video for Bryan’s new song, Peace, Love & Bare Feet (remember, that was the winning song title submitted by Jen Quinlan in our 30A contest last year!) — and they need your help:

STEP 1: Using your phone, take a brief family-friendly video of yourself (less than 15 seconds) making a peace sign, a symbol of love, and/or a video of your bare feet.

STEP 2: Email your video before June 1, 2013 to email@bryan-kennedy.com.

That’s all! Once Bryan receives enough video clips, he’ll produce the video and then we’ll premiere it in front of 200,000+ 30A fans worldwide! So be creative and, most importantly, HAVE FUN!

We just passed 200,000 fans on 30A’s Facebook page shortly after midnight. While it took us three-and-a-half years to reach 100,000 fans, it’s taken less than 12 months to double our size!

To put that number into some perspective, 30A’s Facebook following is larger than the populations of many major U.S. cities, including Little Rock, Arkansas (pop: 195,314); Mobile, Alabama (194,914); Salt Lake City, Utah (189,899); Knoxville, Tennessee (180,761); Jackson, Mississippi (175,561) and Tallahassee, Florida (182,965). It also ranks 30A ahead of many nationally known brands such as Coastal Living (73,081 fans), The New York Post (96,896 fans), The Atlanta Journal Constitution (48,667 fans), Salt Life (185,489 fans) and The Chicago Tribune (71,710 fans), just to name a few. WOW!

We would like to sincerely thank all 30A fans everywhere for supporting our business and beach community.

We plan to celebrate this major milestone during the 30A Day Street Party at NatureWalk this Saturday, May 18th from Noon until 6pm. The party is free and open to the public, and will feature live music by Dread Clampitt, The Forrest Williams Band and Cadillac Willy!

Seagrove Redfish

Thanks to Brittany Godbee for sharing this photo of her brother Jared Hall and the monster 44-inch Redfish that he caught last night in Seagrove. Reeling him in took over an hour, but after a quick photo opp, the giant fish was released and swam off into the Seagrove sunset!

Thanks to Tibor Pollak of Acme Oyster House for sharing these manatee photos that he captured with his GoPro along Miramar Beach yesterday!
