Drew not only paints works of art on surfboards, he’s been commissioned to design skateboards, wakeboards, bikes, guitars, shoes and clothing apparel. His motto, “It’s my job to make things look cool” has no limits. Recently, he illustrated and published his second children’s book, How to Draw with Drew Brophy published by Walter Foster Publishing. Drew’s diverse creativity can be seen on his website, www.drewbrophy.com.

“I feel honored to be included as an artist with the shapers and pioneers of our sport at the Boards and Waves Expo. I enjoy connecting with active surfers; they are what drive our sport and our industry. Relationships with these people keep me in tune with what’s really going on,” says Drew.
The expo will be held April 17th and 18th, 2010 at the Cocoa Expo Sports Complex. It will feature some of the best surfboard shapers, manufacturers and artists from the surfing community. Over 70 local and national exhibitors of surfboards, fins, surf accessories, Stand Up Paddle (SUP) and action sports are expected.

The event is open to the public and promises to educate those already involved in the sport or who want to learn. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Surfrider Foundation and the Cocoa Beach High Surf Team.

The Cocoa Expo Sports Complex is located in Cocoa, FL off I-95 and SR520, 10 miles directly west of Cocoa Beach.
