A Jimmy Lewis shaped SUP board was auctioned for a record $27,500 at the annual gala of the Everglades Foundation in Palm Beach. The board was given to the auction by Jimmy Lewis and the owners of Jupiter Paddleboarding, John and Bari Denney.
The auction package included the 10'6 Jimmy Lewis Cruise Control SUP, a Kanaha Paddle, a Jimmy Lewis board bag and an everglades eco-tour and paddle session with Jupiter Paddleboarding. Bids were cast by raising a glow stick in the audience. While the proud new owner of the SUP board is unknown, gala attendees included Kelly Slater, Jack Nicklaus and Dave Mathews.
