Starboard has decided to make a very special Limited Edition range of one of the more recognized Freeride boards ever, the Starboard Futura. And they are doing it to raise money for very good causes: to help both the Ellen MacArthur Trust and Surfers Healing.
Only 200 Futuras are going to be made and they will be available from January, but you better place your order now if you want to make sure you get one of the very exclusive boards: lime green colour with pearl white combination and a custom Futura Limited Edition number. This numbers will run from serial number 001 to 200. But only 199 boards will be available for you to order. The board with serial number 001 will be auctioned online at www.star-board.com. The auction will start on January 15th (2009) and will last until February 15th. If you are the lucky higher bidder, you will get your Futura Limited Edition signed by Svein Rasmussen, founder of Starboard, and by Tiesda You, Starboard head designer.
All the Limited Edition Futuras come with a Futura Limited Edition Cap, a T-Shirt and a certificate. The boards made will be:
– 50 Futura 111 Limited Edition
– 74 Futura 122 Limited Edition.
– 75 Futura 133 Limited Edition.
All the money raised from the auction and 50 euros of each Limited Edition Futura board sold will be donated to the two associations: Ellen MacArthur Trust and Surfes Healing. The Ellen MacArthur Trust helps young people recovering from cancer, leukaemia and other serious illneses. The trust takes them out sailing in the Ocean, which helps to rebuild confidence and also helps in their recovery. The Surfers Healing was founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowitz. Their son was diagnosed with autism at age three. The ocean was the only place where he seem to find respite, so through Surfers Healing they want to enrich the lives of children with autism and the lives of their families by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing.
So don’t wait to long to place your order. Remember only 199 boards to book, and one to bid for from th 15th of January until 15th of February.
