Get BOARD with Team YOLO

Posted by: Ursula Zamora on Friday, January 11, 2013

We are happy to introduce to you the newest sponsored athletes of Team GoL-Team YOLO Board!

Team YOLO is comprised of 13 male and female paddleboarders from across the country. All elite riders, they range in age from the youngest teenage team member to more experienced team members who spent time in other water sports...and even an actor fro "General Hospital"!

Team YOLO is competeing in the Orange Bowl Paddleboard Championship-the largest Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) event on the East Coast will take place in Miami on January 13th, 2013. Navigating a course that will start in Biscayne Bay and run up the Miami River against the backdrop of downtown Miami’s skyline, participants will compete for the largest purse prize on the East Coast while supporting a good cause – positive adult mentor relationships for at-risk children. All proceeds from the event will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami.

The theme of YOLO Board is very much in the hearts and minds of its founders Jeff Archer and Tom Losee. After being introduced to the sport of stand up paddleboarding (SUP) in 2005, the lifetime watermen instinctively knew that the world-renowned beaches and diverse waterways of Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast would be a perfect match for SUP and the lifestyle it inspires.

With the motto “You Only Live Once” as the company’s guiding principle, the idea of YOLO Board was born. The two set out to introduce SUP to the Sunshine State with the production of a variety of high quality, stable and soundly designed stand up paddleboards. Making SUP accessible and easy for anyone, no matter the age or skill level, has been the company’s foundational goal since Day One and continues today.

YOLO Board’s community-minded values are at the heart of each and every board produced, be it a design for the recreational soul paddler or the elite pro racer. Since opening its doors in 2006, the company has grown into a beloved lifestyle brand with bi-coastal headquarters in Santa Rosa Beach, FL and San Diego, CA, as well as an expanding family of YOLO Board rental and retail ambassadors both nationally and internationally. Even more inspiring, is the evolution of the “YOLO” lifestyle and the interconnected community of water sports enthusiasts living each day to the fullest, forever exploring the world around them.
