The three-day Surf Expo show in Orlando, Florida wrapped up Sunday, the last major trade show of the season.
The show featured a large wakeboard area, SUP demonstrations, and lots of events and parties.
Most of the booths I visited were pretty busy inside, and I saw nearly every important East Coast retailer there.
There seemed to be a lot of energy around the wakeboard section of the show, which included some boat companies in addition to makers of wakeboard equipment and softgoods.
I had lots of interesting interviews and conversations at the show, and visited a lot of stores.
I'll be rolling out those stories over the coming week.
In the meantime, here are photos from the floor.
