Well the journey of the Earthquake Surfboard has now had a happy ending. We wanted to thank everyone for the support and well wishes over the past few weeks.
We were amazed at the unfolding events of the auction. This resulted in having 9974 hits on Trademe with over 100 people watching the auction, which far exceeded all of our expectations. The final bid was $2061.00 NZD, which will be making its way to the Red Cross.
The winner of the Earthquake Surfboard and handmade wall racks is a Cantabrian surfer. It is pretty fantastic to think the board will go to someone who has personal attachment to the City of Christchurch.
We are eternally grateful to those in the surfing community both in New Zealand and internationally who embraced this cause. It was also humbling to get so many heartfelt messages from those people who told us they were not from a surfing background, their sentiments expressed to us greatly contributed to the significance of the Earthquake Board.
Once again we wanted to thank everyone!!
