San Clemente, CA (October 1, 2012) Following the success of its first two online auctions – day-long concert experiences with Dave Mathews Band and Jason Mraz – that raised over $35,000 combined, the Surfrider Foundation today announced the third item in the Treasures for the
Coast online auction.
The latest item up for bid is a mint-condition Modern/Classic solid redwood surfboard shaped by the legendary Dale Velzy. Measuring 10’2′ x 23′ x 2′ this board was shaped in the mid-1990s by Dale to replicate his boards from the World War II era. Dale only shaped between 20 and 30 of these Modern/Classics – this one is in ³like-new² condition – and there has never been one like it for sale on the open market.
In coming weeks the auction will feature other one-of-a-kind items including a California surf trip for three with a former World Champion,
an original piece of fine art and, lunch for six with a New York-based investment luminary. All proceeds from the auctions will support the
Surfrider Foundation¹s efforts to protect and preserve the world’s oceans, waves and beaches.
Check back often in the coming months to see the latest bids and find out which item will be auctioned off next. Don¹t miss this chance to win a unique treasure while protecting the treasured coasts you love.
