Story:

This is my daughter, Brynn. She is 6 years old and rockin’ that extra chromosome! Brynn and I have been kayaking together for years, but I had always wanted to paddle board and she wants to be as close to the water as possible. Once she got big enough, my husband got me a ISUP for my birthday and our adventures began. I love the time we spend together on the water. Most of the time, it’s just the two of us and the memories we make are so dear to my heart. I remember when Brynn was first born…thinking anything fun we used to do would come to a complete halt and our lives would consist of nothing more than therapies and doctor appointments. Boy was I wrong! While adventures like this are totally normal for us, we sometimes hear other people (especially of kiddos with different abilities) saying “I can’t believe you do that stuff with her” or “doesn’t it scare you?” etc. The truth is, there’s nothing that can stop her and I think it’s just going to get better from here.
Thank you, Isle, for making a product that we can both enjoy and make memories for years to come! Now we just need to get an electric pump to make our outings a little more enjoyable! 🤣
