Folly Beach-based nonprofit Warrior Surf Foundation (WSF) is thrilled to partner with Mex 1 Coastal Cantina to launch SHARE THE STOKE: Win a Board, Give A Board Raffle. Each quarter, one local surfboard company will raffle off a hand shaped board, as well as give a custom board to one lucky veteran graduate of the WSF program. This month, Hoke Surfboards will be working with the chosen veteran to shape and design their dream board from start to finish. Surfers wishing to win their own hand shaped 5’10” Twin Fin Fish from Hoke can enter our online raffle now through August 13.
The blue-tinted board up for auction is hand shaped, glassed and colored from Hoke Surfboards founder Josh Hoke, who is known for his unrivaled resin and technique. As for the board for the veteran graduate chosen, Josh looks forward to working with them directly to shape, glass, color and bring their vision to life.
Raffle tickets are 10 for $10, 20 for $15 and 30 for $25. Online, you can also sign up to score additional free tickets when you share the designated link with friends. All money raised will go directly towards Warrior Surf Foundation’s Surf Therapy, Yoga and Wellness Programs to help our nation’s veterans struggling with PTSD, transitional issue and other mental health challenges.

More about Hoke Surfboards
Hoke Surfboards was founded in Charleston, S.C. by Josh Hoke in 2011. Josh started shaping and glassing at 15, making boards for himself and his friends. He specializes in making boards that perform well in small waves like longboards, fish, mini simmons and grovelers. In addition to shaping, Josh does all his own glasswork and coloring, with traditional artwork that typically is vintage, including lots of pigmented laminations and fabric inlays. Josh’s mission at Hoke Surfboards is to “create beautiful, high-quality and most importantly fun rides that bring smiles to surfers.” Learn more about Hoke Surfboards on Instagram.
More about Mex 1 Coastal Cantina
Mex 1 Coastal Cantina (three locations in Charleston, S.C.) was inspired by surf trips down the Baja Peninsula, cruising down the Mex 1 highway and veering off towards the ocean on a small dirt road to surf. The restaurant’s entire experience is fueled by the light, fresh flavors of Baja, served up in the little cantinas that dot the coastline (with no shortage of tequila)!
