Boards & Waves Expo III

exhibitor information


Why exhibit at Boards & Waves Expo III?

  • The Boards & Waves Expo III is the only Expo of its kind open to the public on the East Coast!
  • The Expo creates a uniquely personal and “up-close” opportunity bringing surfers, paddlers & beachgoers together with the industry’s top shapers, designers, manufacturers and sales reps of surfboards, paddle boards, fins, foam, surf & SUP accessories and more
  • Meet, educate and connect with hundreds of potential surf & paddle customers as well as 150+ invited surf/SUP retail buyers–share design & construction insight, help consumers choose their next board!
  • Give away stickers & t-shirts, and have Expo specials to create excitement for your brand/product and to build a customer database
  • Sell surfboards, paddle boards, t-shirts & other merchandise directly to the consumer at full MSRP or refer sales to local surf and paddle retail partners; take custom board orders at any time!
  • Join in honoring Pete & Dick’s contributions to surfboard shaping and East Coast surfing
  • More fun than standing in a dusty shaping stall all weekend!
