The 2010 Boards & Waves Expo will feature over 100 exhibits of surfboards, fins, foam, and surf accessories, Stand Up Paddle (SUP) and “eco/green” displays, action sports-related products (skateboard, kiteboard, motocross, BMX, wakeboard), surfboard painting with Drew Brophy, surf- and beach-inspired artists, surfboard shaping demos, homemade surfboard contest, educational seminars and more.
The two-day event is the East Coast’s ONLY “consumer expo for surfers” and will be held on April 17 & 18, 2010 at the Cocoa Expo Sports Center in Cocoa, Florida.
There will be free product giveaways including a raffle to win a Ricky Carroll surfboard each day.
"With the diversity and complexity of boards, fins, and foam, today’s consumer needs more information before buying a new surfboard. The 2010 Boards & Waves Expo gives surfers the opportunity to talk face-to-face with surfboard shapers, fin designers, accessory manufacturers and others in a fun, informative environment!” said Dave Seehafer, avid surfer and action sports industry veteran.
Last year’s Expo was held in Daytona Beach, attracting nearly 1500 attendees to over 60 exhibits. The move to the “East Coast Surfing Capital” allows the Expo to grow and reach a larger audience.
Open to the public!
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Surfrider Foundation and Cocoa Beach High Surf Team.
