2014 Surf Expo Board Demo Day
Surf Expo’s board demo day at The Orlando Watersports Complex was a great opportunity to check out a lot of boards in a small amount of time. Anyone on the west coast looking to demo SUPs should plan on making it out to Camp SUP at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, Sept. 13-14, 2014. Here are some photos from Surf Expo’s Demo Day.
Board Demo event summary from Surf Expo: Retailers and buyers made their way to the annual Board Demo Day Wednesday, September 3, to get Surf Expo kicked off early. The demo day supports the Stand Up Paddle and Wake markets and allows retailers to try products before buying. Held at the Orlando Watersports Complex, the event featured several unique contests, including the 3rd annual Surf Expo BIC SUP One Design Challenge and the Inaugural Shop Shootout.
The "BIC SUP One Design Challenge" is a race for all skill levels. Every participant received a raffle ticket for a chance to win a WING, the award-winning board used at all BIC SUP One Design events, and the winner will be announced at Surf Expo on Friday at 5pm at the BIC SUP booth #673. This year marked the first Shop Shootout, hosted by Liquid Force, Byerly Boards, CWB Boards, O'Brien, and Hyperlite. The evening contest offered shop employees a chance to compete on the cable, which give riders of all abilities a level playing field.
