1 Surf Expo 2012
One of the biggest parts of Surf Expo is the swimwear section, which just happens to be dominated by lady’s swimsuits. Who are we to complain about that?
2 Surf Expo boobies
These chicks were super cool, and I have to get one of those â€œI Love Motor Boatingâ€ trucker hats. Check out their full line at www.boobiesrule.org. Proceeds go toward breast cancer awareness.
3 surf expo
Some of the world’s best shapers took their turn in the shaping room.
4 guys paint
I watched these guys paint a mural for a bit. Pretty cool. The finished boards are auctioned off for charity.
5 go pro
GoPro cameras are hitting it big. They have new mounts for all sorts of sports, including diving, surfing, fishing and snow sports. They also sponsor racecars, guess you figured that outâ€¦
6 mix tape
Glad to see cassettes are making a comeback. I’m stoked I hung onto my Van Halen â€œ1984â€ tape!
7 surf expo candy girl
Don’t know about these chicksâ€¦ The whole candy thing made me feel like a dirty old man.
I love a good mustache! Sanuk was giving these out as part of its Cash for the Stache promotion.
Costa had a sweet setup at the show, with a hip Airstream trailer decked out to the nines.
10 shark suit
Afraid of sharks? Check out the shark protection suit from the guys at Neptunic.
11 bote paddleboards
The Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) segment is growing like wildfire. Bote is making some unique SUPs that are perfect for shallow-water catching.
12 sun burn
I don’t like getting sunburned so I went back to the Sun Bum booth about six times to get a free sample of sunblock from this nice young lady.
Check it out, Shaquille O’Neal’s CROC! Just kidding. I don’t know what the deal is with that thing.
14 guy harvey
I had no idea Guy Harvey offered so many different products. There were three booths of gear featuring everything from bottle openers to board shorts.
15 laid back
This company, Laid Back, had a sweet old woodie on display. I like their style.
Ever wonder where souvenir shops get those cheesy pipesâ€¦ Well, now you know.
I don’t know if this was a tribute to Gaga or what, but that’s a real chick and her clothes are made entirely out of magazine ads and stickers. She really struck a pose.
I don’t know anything about swimwear fashion, but I liked this one.
19 polka dots
Polka dots are making a comeback. I was singing that â€œLittle Yellow Polka Dot Bikiniâ€ song all day.
Front-row seating for us media pervs.
21 surf expo
I got to give it up to the good people of Surf Expo, they really know how to celebrate the surf, sun and fun lifestyle.
