Hey, yall!  I'm happy you're here! Welcome to my corner of the beautiful Emerald Coast.

 

I'm Julie, all five-foot-two inches of bubble enthusiasm that welcomes you to paddle.  I am happiest when exploring or on the paddleboard. I am a huge fan of Jesus, family, friends, and good coffee. When not on the board, you'll find me hanging around town, probably listening to one of my favorite bands and with the loves of my life, Ken and Lottie.  

 

JuleZ SUP Tours came about when I knew I was hiding from the world and the paddleboard I grew to love dearly. The love of the water inspired this dream in 2016 when I first started paddling.  Going out to the water to paddle became a self-healing journey that I feel led to share with others, especially after experiencing the world's weight drop off of me when on the board. Today, I love nothing more than sharing this experience with others. 

My husband Ken and I moved to 30A in 2014. I love living here alongside my Hero, Master's Boat Captain, and retired Fireman. I have two boys, Taylor (24) and Zachary (21). Taylor makes my heart smile every time I hear his name. Zachary was in a tragic car accident and passed away at the young age of 16.  

 

JuleZ30A will forever be lived in the Memory of Zachary Spears, who will forever be 16, forever loved, and forever missed.
