Australia: land of waves and surf expos

The inaugural Australian Surfing Sports Expo will open its doors on the 14th February, in Broadbeach, Gold Coast.

The Australian Surfing Sports Expo aims to become one of the largest surfing events in Australia's history, and will run for three days at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The exhibition, which is also open to the public, is designed to bring shapers, retailers, tour operators, designers and all manors of inventors and innovators from the surfing industry under one roof.

The Australian Surfing Sports Expo will include surfboards, but also all types of surf products such as standup paddle boards, bodyboards, wetsuits, swim fins, kneeboards, kite boards, fashion, accessories and even motorised products.

The event is run by ​Surfing Exhibitions Australia. It will be covering 5000 square meters, in one of Australia's greatest surfing heartlands.
