The world’s most expensive Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) has been sold in Palm Beach, Florida for $27,500 at a charity auction.
John and Bari Denney, owners of paddleboard store Jupiter Paddleboarding in the U.S., teamed up with acclaimed sharper Jimmy Lewis from Maui to donate a SUP to be auctioned at a gala event for the Everglades Foundation, Haute Living reported.
The Everglades Foundation charity is involved in creating awareness and increasing conservation of the wetlands and natural sources of water in South Florida.
The auction, held last Friday, was attended by approximately 500 guests, including celebrities such as singer Dave Matthews and legendary surfer Kelly Slater.
The world’s most expensive SUP Board was sold as part of a package which included the Jimmy Lewis Kanaha Paddle designed by Quickblade, a Jimmy Lewis board bag, a 10’6 Jimmy Lewis Cruise Control SUP and a paddle session and Everglades eco-tour with Jupiter Paddleboarding.
The final bid on the Jimmy Lewis board and package, which came from an unknown bidder, was $27,500, which went to the Everglades Foundation.View Comments
