The word on the streets is this is one of the smaller Surf Expos in recent years from a SUP perspective. There are some noticeable absences including SIC, Starboard and Boga. We’ll reserve judgement until the end of day 1 as far as traffic and health go.  All I can say is I’m excited to see what’s new, what’s improved, and a little custom board I ordered a few months ago from Hobie.

What would you like to see?
