Scalloping the Port St Joe on BOTE boards

BOTE does Black's Island

Black's Island is located in the Florida Panhandle about one mile of the shore off Port St. Joe in St. Joseph Bay. It is the ONLY island in the bay that has any building, people or power on it. The island, owned and operated by Jeff Bowman, has 25 "bungalows" that resemble something from Figi or Bora bora. It is spectacular. Surrounding the island is miles of grass bottom teaming with sea life, from huge sharks to tiny sea scallops. The scallops are what bring people here.

Initially when I started paddling with my son Tristan, he would sit in between my legs without moving an inch, then gradually he started dipping his hands in the water, then he moved on to moving all over the board and having a blast. By the end of his first summer on a paddleboard, he would walk all over my board and made me work a little harder on stability.
