Coolest Place to Party

Crab Island (850) 855-6907 www.crabislandonline.com Continued From Page 12

Crab Island is easily one of the best and most unique places on the Emerald Coast to gather with friends and family, via boat or jet ski, that is! Driving over the Destin Bridge, just look below to the north to the emerald green and turquoise-colored waters where hundreds of boats and people are gathered and you’ll see what all the hype is about. This is one hot spot that draws people in and keeps them coming back for weekends to enjoy the food, fun, and entertainment, which are always guaranteed. And if you haven’t tried Helen Back pizza, thanks to the Helen Back floating barge you can enjoy pizza sampling on Saturday and Sunday! A day on Crab Island makes any day the best party of the summer! On summery holidays, you can expect to see double the locals and visitors flocking to Crab Island to anchor their vessels and soak up the sun and make new friends. If you don’t have a boat, charters and rentals are available through the Crab Island services online. Locals and tourists can rent pontoons, kayaks, and wave runners or even sign up for a dolphin tour cruise. If volleyball is your game but you don’t like the hot summer beach sand, you’ll love water volleyball at Crab Island. Six days a week you can play for free on one of the three floating nets from 10am to 5pm. On Saturday and Sunday, let your competitive wild side join in the 4-person volleyball tournament starting at 2pm. And if the fun of tournament play isn’t enough, each day the winning team will receive a prize. Crab Island also features the Ultimate Crab Island Experience for those looking for someone else to guide the fun! You and 15 of your friends can schedule this fun-filled day which includes transportation, food served buffet style, music, concerts, drinks, soda and water, and water fun all provided for you. Although alcohol isn’t served, those 21 and older may certainly bring it along. For more information on this unforgettable experience, log onto CrabIslandOnline.com.

One of the latest inventions from the Netherlands has made its way to the US and is now being distributed throughout the US, Caribbean Islands, and Mexico from right here on the beautiful Emerald Coast by Steve Drummond, who accidently found the product watching YouTube videos. Two years later and Drummond is now the president of Lopifit, the walking bike. The electric walking bike designed by Dutch engineer Bruin Bergmeester features a Dutch design and is trending worldwide with a promo video that has hit millions of views and likes over social media. Sound interesting yet? It gets better! The Lopifit walking bike boosts your walking speed up to the pace of a bike, so it’s essentially a way to take the treadmill outdoors, enabling you to zoom around at a speed of 15-17 mph with a range of either a minimum 40 miles per charge or to 60 miles per charge. The bike is incredibly easy and fun to ride! Lopifit walking bike is a viable source of transportation for anyone 16 to 160 years old! Drummond and other investors believe the walking bike is also a great advantage for those who have physical problems and discomfort riding a normal bike. A high cardio and high calorie burn are a sure benefit, too! An electric quantum motor with a chargeable Samsung Lithium battery drives the walking bike, and the user can easily adjust the speed. The bike components are Shimano, which are top of the line. This cool ride also features LED lighting and a luggage carrier for convenience. Ride in style with your Lopifit by customizing it in one of six different colors: royal blue, orange, fire-engine red, silver, white, and black, or add your own special touch by choosing a custom color. All bikes include a full twoyear warranty with purchase. Since Drummond is based in Sandestin, the people of the Emerald Coast are some of the first to see these bikes in the US. There is no better time to try this new method of transportation than during a beautiful summer here in the panhandle with the advantages of flat and level land. So, feel the breeze blow through your hair and ride with ease at high speeds courtesy of the Lopifit walking bike!
