Standup Journal is STOKED to be at the January 2018 Surf Expo in Orlando.   We will be reporting on the latest news, trends and gear from the floor of the biggest surf and stand up paddle trade show on the East Coast.

Bluewater Category lights up the Expo

This year, at the Surf Expo, we look forward to seeing the launch of  the new Bluewater category at the January show.  Inspired by like-minded watersports brands, Bluewater connects to the waterman lifestyle that has always been a part of Surf Expo’s DNA, and is a perfect complement to Surf Expo’s existing floor categories.

This exciting new category showcases inshore and offshore apparel and accessories companies and is anchored by brand giants and veteran Surf Expo exhibitors Salt Life, Bimini Bay and Yeti.  Products highlighted here will include performance and technical apparel as well as lifestyle brands for people who live and love by the water.  Bluewater’s range also encompasses footwear, outerwear, sportswear, sunglasses and so much more.
