Surf Expo, the longest-running trade show in the surfing industry, is due to kick off in Orlando in two weeks time. It has gradually grown over the last 31 years and now serves the board, beach and fashion markets. Thousands of retailers and exhibitors from across the country gather twice a year to celebrate the success and progression of the surf community on the east coast.

This September, more than 9,500 retailers have pre-registered to attend September's Surf Expo: the largest number ever. In addition to great retail opportunities, visitors will find out the top ten brand spanking new brands in the surf/skate/style industries, as decided by the Board Retailers Association, and will be invited to attend seminars from the industry's leading professionals.

The Volcom mini-ramp contest (offering a record $25,000 purse) will be battled out by pros Steve Caballero, Mike Peterson, Kyle Berard, Corey Duffel, Pat Duffy and Matt Hensley, the Monster Energy Wake n' Bake Rail Jam will be premiered and the world's top pro wakeboarders and wakeskaters will be hitting a record-breaking 220-foot Rail Jam set-up at the show.
