    Here's some info I put together for a recent press release - sort of gives you the overview.



    What To Expect At The Boardroom
    The Boardroom is the world’s foremost gathering for surfboard design and innovation and we are stoked to offer the entire East Coast surf community an opportunity to experience it during Surf Expo, September 7-8. This open-to-the-public event will be located on the Surf Expo South Hall Concourse of the Orange County Convention Center and admission is $10. Kids twelve and under and Surf Expo attendees can attend for free. Come connect with passionate surfers, shapers, and more than 40 exhibitors and don’t miss our series of special on floor events:

    Icons of Foam Tribute to the Masters Presented By U.S. Blanks
    Shaping competition honoring legendary East Coast shaper Rich Price. Master shapers—including Pat Rawson, Stu Kenson, Bruce Regan, CT Taylor, Craig Cronin, and Taz Yassin—will attempt to replicate a classic Rich Price design in the US Blanks Shaping Bay. Each shaper receives 90 minutes in the shaping bay with his own tools. A blank and a template are provided; nothing else. The winning shaper receives $1,000 and their name etched atop the Mike Marshall Perpetual Trophy.

    Best of Show Exhibit
    An exhibitor competition where each manufacturer is invited to showcase one surfboard in this featured area. Judges will be looking for quality craftsmanship in all realms of the manufacturing process, including but not limited to: concept, design, shape, lamination, technology, and art.

    Chunk of Foam Challenge Presented By Bubblegum Surf Wax
    Harken back to the days of ancient Polynesian board building. Boards were made out of chunks of wood. We challenge a selection of shapers to create a surfboard out of an eight-foot by two-foot chunk of foam—no blanks, no templates, no prefab rockers, no stringers, no modern measuring devices. Each shaper will spin the Wheel Of Chance to determine what they will be shaping: for example a LIS Fish, Brewer slipper nose gun, asymmetrical, MR Twin Fin, and more.

    Laminating Exhibition
    A demonstration of epoxy glassing techniques using hand lamination and vacuum bagging. Expert surfboard craftsman Greg Loehr and others talk the public through the process, highlight key moments and offer insight into the glassing world.

    Live Music
    Check out The Supervillains live at our main stage at The Boardroom. This four-piece reggae/ska band is an Orlando favorite and the band will be coming off a nationwide tour in support of their new album Volume 8. Plus Lady and the Tramps

    Eastern Surf Magazine Slideshow
    The editorial staff of Eastern Surf Magazine delves into their photo files for the all-time greatest East Coast photos along with a selection of shots from recent editorial trips through The Caribbean and Central America.

    “Faces & Foam Dust” Gallery By ESM
    ESM Co-Founder **** “Mez” Meseroll and Tom Dugan have been traveling up and down the East Coast this summer, visiting more than 100 shapers. This gallery highlights their favorite photos from that trip and the best stories from the road.

    Plus
    Autograph signings - RASTA will be signing,
    collectable / memorabilia surfboard "Roadshow" style appraisals,
    movie premieres,
    and more.
