Event at Corduroy Boutique & Gallery November 11 to celebrate life & spirit of Jordan Kelly

www,GrainSurfboards.com/raffle for tix.

A fundraising partnership has formed between Grain Surfboards, Corduroy Boutique & Gallery, Stoked Mentoring and the family of Jordan Kelly to raise funds benefitting at-risk youth.  On the other side of the planet, surfers Dave Rastovich and Johnny Abegg teamed up in Australia with filmmaker Mick Waters to lend their support to the effort.

Most recently, Grain Surfboards donated a 5’4” Lis-style wood fish made from cedar and burled walnut to be raffled for the Jordan Kelly Surf School Fund at Stoked. Rasta and Abegg surfed the board “down under” where they were filmed by Waters for the upcoming film “Little Black Wheels” to be released this winter.  The board is personally signed by Rasta himself.

The surfboard, valued at $2,000, will be awarded during a come-one, come-all event to be held at Corduroy Boutique & Gallery in Portland, Maine November 11.  Tickets are $10 at www.grainsurfboards.com/raffle.  Winner responsible for shipping the board, but we’ll pack it for you!

Shortly after his 21st birthday last year, Jordan Kelly died in a car accident on Thanksgiving night after a day of surfing, family and friends. He had a love of skating, surfing and woodworking and was drawn to the rootsy, DIY ethos of the wood surfboard builders at Grain Surfboards. Stoked Mentoring is a non profit action sports organization for at-risk youth with the mission of developing successful teens with opportunity, knowledge, experience, and determination through the use of action sports, mentoring and coaching. In Jordan’s memory, Grain, Jordan’s family and Stoked are planning surfboard-building classes for kids served by Stoked Mentoring. Special thanks to Corduroy Boutique & Gallery who, as a “combined lifestyle boutique and social scene”, tied everyone together and made it possible to establish the fund.
