Surf Expo

Another Surf Expo event closed yesterday after a very successful few days for many of kitesurfing's brands and retailers. The show takes place at the Orange County convention centre on International Drive in Florida and for those three days the fun and visuals aren't just reserved for the theme parks with the surfing world's biggest brands all under one roof displaying their wares.

As well as providing magazine editors, brands and retailers to network, learn more about the new gear and to place orders for the coming season, the AWSI (Association Wind Sport Industries) hosts an awards night on Saturday, featuring 'Rider of the Year', 'Brand of the Year' and 'Retailer of the Year' in kitesurfing, windsurfing and SUP.

Jesse Richman took the Rider of the Year award in kiting for the second year on the trot. This video had a lot to do with it:



Slingshot were acknowledged as Brand of the Year and Real Kiteboarding Retailer of the Year. Congratulations to them.
