The 7’ Pandan model features a mural, painted by NJ native and artist Joe Hodnicki. “When Grain approached me about a painting on a custom hand-built board, I was honored and stoked,” he says.

The cedar surfboard was built at Grains’s store, The Wood Shop in Portsmouth, and was designed with the help of Layne Beachley, a seven-time world champion surfer.

Raffle tickets for the Pandan 7’ model will be on sale until March 1, and 100% of the profits will be donated to Waves4Water, an organization that has coordinated a 3-phase relief effort for coastal surf communities in New Jersey and New York.
