A true California girl, Andie hails from Huntington Beach and now resides in San Diego with her best friend and husband, EJ Johnson. Andie was drawn to SUP in 2007 as it was a great way to get a low impact, head-to-toe workout, all alongside her dog Taco. Since then, Andie and EJ have been regulars on the SUP racing circuit, spreading their positive energy and laid back outlook on life to fellow paddlers nationwide. Andie considers herself more of a lifestyle paddler than a hardcore racer, but does enjoy a little friendly competition out on the water.
Andie serves as the manager of Paddle Republic California, spreading the YOLO message day in and day out with her infectious energy and upbeat vibe. An integral member of the YOLO West Coast team, Andie is looking forward to helping as many people as possible get out on the water and experience the YOLO way of life.
