Heading into Surf Expo 2008. Pulled together some interesting photos from the show.

The guys have been working hard and it, uh, shows?
Greg, LW Dave, Dimitri and Toby tough it out, arrrggghhh!


Image
Toby of Kiteforum with Marina of The Kiteboarder Magazine team up and shoot the show.
Toby explained his production schedule to me. He would soup the video in the imaging processing application and then set his alarm to fall comatose for two hours. Then BRRRINNG and back at it. He kept this up for the whole weekend I think. There were two teams shooting the show also including Ryan and Zach. You can see all the videos at: http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2351308 There's commitment!


Image
Folks were wearing themselves out using this funky gyro conditioning doohicky.
The representative was telling me that the kiters playing with this thing were
doing as well as full time body condition folks with the gadget. So, is it
unhooked riding or beer to explain our remarkable prowess?

Cabrinha's booth


Image
The Hat-meister tools into the show in Hat livery. He wanted a copy of this to go to his mom, Mrs. Hat?


Image
Damien and Todd move out at the Cabrinha booth

Lonny shows off the mighty comfy Cabrinha Synch board bindings

Dimitri of Eclipse visits Nick of the new kite gear accessory line, Malestrom. Before you can say "Bob's yer uncle" Dimitri is tagged and on clearance. Actually the tag came off the board. Malestrom specializes in low price accessories for schools and new kiters.

PJ's but can you kite in them?


Image
Lonny, Katrina and Paula hang out at the Cabrinha booth. Not only is Lonny a marvel at strapless riding, he does it with his eyes closed! Amazing!



Image
They had three or more fashion shows a day. The models were also pretty incredible dancers too.

You asked for it, you got it! Indoor kiteboarding at the Expo!

Stretch into it. This lady has some amazing almost gymnastic moves on the stage.


Image
Who kicks Mike Bradely in line? This capable young lady does, outstanding chair massages. Dimitri may even offer up a happy ending? (PASS!)
Mike just opened up a new retail kiteboarding shop in Cocoa Beach, FL.


Image
They guys are working on Popeye forearms and sucking down some suds courtesy of Lou Waiman at the end of the day.


Image
We love Popeye! A swarm of runway models drifts through.

I got mine, you got yours? Toby sports his autographed Hat shot.
