SAN DIEGO, California – YOLO Board San Diego is excited to be a part of the up and coming seaside community of Point Loma. The complete standup paddleboard (SUP) outfitter has recently relocated from Old Town San Diego to a new store at 1055 Rosecrans Street in the heart of Point Loma and within walking distance to the water. Area SUP enthusiasts will now be able to find everything needed for a great day on the water, and enjoy an array of YOLO Board offerings from SUP Yoga to demos to special company-sponsored events.
“We’re thrilled to be located so close to the water and to become a part of Point Loma’s thriving town center,” said Andie Johnson, YOLO Board Ambassador and San Diego store manager. “The picturesque and protected Shelter Islands waters are ideal for SUP, offering both calm waters for beginners and open ocean access for the more adventurous paddler. We’ve received a warm welcome from the community and are looking forward to expanding YOLO Board San Diego’s program offerings and growing the local SUP community.”
The new store features a Hawaiian vibe with bamboo accents and a custom build-out from YOLO Board Elite Rider, paddle designer and master craftsmen E.J. Johnson. Customers can shop and test the complete line of YOLO Board standup paddleboards as well as pick up the latest paddles from YOLO Board and Kialoa and accessories from top brands such as FCS, Hinano and Kreed Eyewear.
