"I’ve been attending Surf Expo for over 20 years. The show has become a staple in both my buying cycle and my social calendar. Roy and his staff lead the way when it comes to buyer relations. They always put the retailer first. They manage to put on a bunch of events while maintaining a focus on business, and I can’t say enough how valuable that is."―D Nachnani, Coastal Edge, Virginia

It really feels like friends and family!"―Jill Bennett, Birthday Suits, Outer Banks, North Carolina
"Surf Expo has always been a very important show for ZJ Boarding House. The chance to see so many lines in one place and the face time with sales managers is invaluable. We've found many new lines at Surf Expo and we always come away having got a lot of work done. Roy and the Surf Expo crew are amazing! Oh, and I greatly enjoy hoping that Wingnut will fall in the SUP pool! Please fall! Please fall!"―Mikke Pierson, ZJ Boarding House, Santa Monica, California
"Out of all the trade shows we have attended over the years, Surf Expo is by far the most important and valuable to us. Each and every season we are excited and proud to show our line at Surf Expo."―Joshua Glickman, Owner, Exist Inc.
“I have attended both Surf Expo shows for over 30 years and they are the Best Shows in the Surf, Skate, Resort and Souvenir markets...PERIOD!"―Joe Bonk, Owner/Operator, Joe Bonk Jewels
"Success in our business is defined by the relationships with customers we've formed over the past 15 years. Surf Expo has been the show, above all others, to not only enrich existing relationships, but to consistently cultivate new ones that will see us into the next 15 years." ―Thom Hill, President, Coastal Classics
"Since attending the first Surf Expo at a small Cocoa Beach hotel in the 1970s, I've watched the show grow and mature along with our entire industry. It's a great place to do business, touch base with old friends, and see what's coming down the road."―Bruce Cromartie, BC Surf and Sport
"I have nothing but the most extreme respect for Roy Turner and his amazing staff―Fish, Doog, O'Brien, and every one of them right down the line. Surf Expo seems to be the one last organization committed to keep our industry relevant. They have always had an amazing talent to make the retailer feel important at a time when even we question our relevance. I can't think of a single person who has done as much as Roy Turner in making sure that we―the retailer―matter, dating back to his days as the voice and spirit at Board Retailers Association. The entire staff is outstanding and I'm always impressed with how they try to accommodate that delicate balance of the retailers and the manufacturers. They should be commended for the extreme challenge of trying to make sure the show dates work for everyone."―Marc D’Emilia, Coast 2 Coast, White Plains, New York
