Ivan Bartha, owner of One Planet Adventures, was recently recognized by AquaBound Paddles as the November 2018 Pro Staff of the month. Well, we could not be more thrilled as we buy, use & promote both AquaBound & Bending Branches paddles in our training & instructional programs. "Any recognition by your industry peers is appreciated, but being part of the AquaBound Pro Staff Team is truly an honor" said Bartha about the news. "AquaBound has evolved over the years and is not only a fixture in the paddling world, but also committed to the local workforce and economy of Osceola, Wisconsin"
