Boards & Waves Expo Readies for Space Coast

| posted on March 22, 2010

The East Coast’s ONLY “consumer expo for surfers”, the 2010 Boards & Waves Expo, is coming to the Space Coast on April 17 & 18, 2010.

The 2010 Boards & Waves Expo will feature over 70 exhibits of local & regional surfboard shapers, fin & foam manufacturers, surf accessories, surf- and beach-inspired artists, and a new Stand Up Paddle (SUP) section. World-renowned artist Drew Brophy will create some of his surfboard art, along with surfboard shaping demos, a homemade surfboard contest, educational seminars and more. 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.
