Arvo has teamed up with local Austin artist Gerardo Rodriguez to create an exclusive pickleball paddle

"Skull Head of Big Bend"

"This design was inspired by my love for nature, especially the desert and West Texas. My hope is that through the art-- and the added twist of the monsters!-- others feel the call to explore, play in, and be inspired by the wonders of the natural world around us."
