The paddle board will be raffled on October 31, 2013 –  For more than 45 years, Juan Rodriguez has been shaping and building surfboards. This has allowed Juan to travel and surf waves all over the world in every type of condition imaginable. Because of this, Mr. Rodriquez understands how important equipment is and understands the difference between a good board and a bad one is in the details, something that is often overlooked by some. One World SUPs have paid attention to the details, from the deck tie downs, air pressure valve, color combinations, glossing, and most importantly the shape. One World Paddle Boards are computer shaped and are an exact copy of my master shape, then hand finished.  For lightness and durability, thermal vacuumed using epoxy resin, fiberglass cloth, and a high density layer of PVC over an EPS foam core. One World makes a board that is light, strong, and with a proven shape that rides as good as it looks.  Register for your raffle ticket today to win and help the pets.  (Raffle Rules & Regulations) The winner will be drawn at the end of the event and he/she can take the board home , or it can be picked-up in Ft.
