Surf Expo aims to not only put on a great show this year but also entertain. At this years show (August 20-22) Eastern Skateboard Supply and Team Pain have teamed up to provide a demo and entertainment for those attending the expo. The demo will feature professionals and a park exclusive to the show.
With less than a month before Surf Expo, the board, beach, and fashion trade show announced details of its schedule of skateboarding events.
Eastern Skateboard Supply is sponsoring a pro demo, including Corey Duffel, Brandon Westgate, Joey Pepper, Chany Jeanguenin, Chad Bartie, Gareth Stehr, JT Aultz and Justin Brock, with more to be named.
The skaters will hit Team Pain's Skate Art with two daily sessions at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. at Surf Expo's skate park. Stop by and talk to these skaters or grab an autograph across from Eastern's booth (#1173) at 2p.m. daily.
Show Director Roy Turner says, "While Surf Expo is known for its business-first attitude, we are also aware that there is a 'show' in trade show. What a better way to get excited about skateboarding than to team up with Eastern and its all-star lineup? We encourage everyone to stop by and watch the insane skating as well as take advantage of photo and video opps, perfect for store owners to place in ads and on the web. This is all about business –the skateboard business– so bring your camera and skateboard and take advantage of what Team Pain and Eastern have cooked up for our August trade show.”
When demos aren't going on, Surf Expo attendees are invited to skate the steel and concrete fabricated Skate Art premiered by Team Pain.
Team Pain promises to bring even more unique urban-inspired features to Surf Expo this August. "We will be providing more of our contemporary skateable art pieces this show, with new designs, a larger course layout with more pieces and more prize money, and giveaways for anyone who wants to ride these features," says Team Pain Owner Tim Payne.

According to Surf Expo Skate Account Manager Doog Becker: "Skateboarding at Surf Expo has seen a change over the last few shows, not only with our events, but we've also seen a huge growth with longboarding in the industry, so naturally that trend is also evident on our show floor. I'm excited to be a part of this growth and change."
