YOLO Board announces that actor Ingo Rademacher will be offering both private and group stand up paddleboard lessons in the South Walton area from Aug. 8-26, 2011.  Best known for his role as Jasper “Jax” Jacks on General Hospital, Rademacher is a German-born US-based Australian television actor and long-time waterman who enjoys SUP (stand up paddleboarding) in his spare time.  Rademacher will offer his fans the opportunity to experience exclusive and personalized one-on-one instruction in either a small group or private lesson.  A fan of South Walton, Rademacher is making time for the SUP lessons during his family’s vacation to the area.

“SUP has such a broad audience, and I love that so many people can experience it because of its incredible learning curve for first time paddlers,” explains Rademacher.  “While in South Walton for a one month respite between film projects, I saw the unique opportunity to team up with YOLO Board to teach something I’m passionate about and to connect with my fans.  SUP is great exercise for so many reasons—it’s a low impact sport that gets people out on the water, and it’s so much fun that you get a workout without even knowing it.”

Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday beginning August 8th and continuing through August 26th, Rademacher will host one hour group SUP lessons for $100 per person.  Sessions are limited to five people to ensure an intimate and personalized experience.  Group lessons with lunch following the lesson are $200 per person (lunch only is also $200 per person).  Paddlers also have the opportunity to schedule private sessions with Rademacher at $350 per person for the first hour and $100 per person for each additional hour.  30A.com (www.30a.com) will be hosting a giveaway via their Facebook page where one lucky paddler will win a private session.

“We’re stoked to have Ingo in the area to share his knowledge and enthusiasm with local paddlers and fans,” said Jeff Archer, Co-Founder of YOLO Board.  “Ingo enjoys paddling with his wife and young son, and is a great ambassador for the sport as both an advanced paddler himself and for showing how SUP can truly be a multi-generational family activity.  YOLO is honored to have the opportunity to work with him and excited to show him the amazing paddle destinations we have here in South Walton.”
