Just Awesome

The only better than the awesome rubboard was the fantastic and prompt customer service. I’m sure I don’t have to say it, but in case you’re not wise: don’t buy anywhere else other than Key of Z!

I own five Key of Z Rubboards!

My first board is from the first batch Tee Don ever made many years ago. It's still in use, along with the board we use in every show every time! Plus I have a couple novice boards I use in arts outreach with kids. And, of course, my granddaughters have Tee Don Boards!
