Dana Current, along with 18 Founding Members whose love and passion for the ocean, surfing and SUP brought them together for a special mission. In 2012, the founders created, organized and executed the inaugural GREAT PV PADDLE to Benefit HEAL, tying the paddle competition into a family fun Labor Day event raising thousands of dollars to assist those Autism living in their community.
