As we have mentioned over the past few weeks, RETNA has contributed a hand-painted surfboard to the Chandran Gallery x Juxtapoz x Univ benefit auction for Waves for Water, an organization on the ground in the Philippines, mobilizing an urgent clean water disaster relief initiative in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan. Through March 31st, a special curated selection of hand-painted surfboards will be available at auction on Paddle8.
