The Surf Industry Manufacturers Association and the Board Retailers Association are coming together for Surf Summit 13 in Los Cabos, Mexico.
The two groups are unifying their annual conferences as a way to better represent the breadth of the industry, unify the entire industry and attract even more leaders to the event, according to a press release.
“We look forward to the synergy of having retailers and manufacturers in one place discussing issues and concerns facing the surf industry, learning about ways to better improve our businesses and at the end of the day, having a drink and bettering our friendships,” Duke Edukas, BRA Co-Chair and Co-Owner of Surfside Sports, said in the release.
Surf Summit 13 will be held May 12-15 at the Crowne Plaza Resort, the same venue as last year.
