It has been a great honor to share the water with our heroes but how awesome would it be if we could provide a board so they can continue their journey? It is with this thought the “Board For Our Heroes” program took shape.
This is a program that is designed to help our service members continue their journey. We host multiple group paddles, and events through the year, and when we find a service member we feel is deserving and having their own equipment would benefit greatly. We source a board that would fit with the discipline of paddling they are interested in, and we give the board to them!
It has been a great honor to share the water with our heroes but having the opportunity to give them a board has been incredible! A paddle board is just a material item, but the impact is SO MUCH more than that! There is something special about being on the water… and the board is that vessel. We have seen the impact it can have first-hand on many occasions.
Aaron was the first recipient of the Board For Our Heroes program. We presented the board to him on 21JUL2020. He is an Army Veteran, Combat Veteran, and a close friend. Over the past year we have gotten to know him well and it has been incredible seeing the impact the community and being on the water has had in his life.
