Ahh, mid-September… around Orlando that means two things: it's still hot as hell and it's Surf Expo weekend. The Orange County Convention Center is rocking right now with all the biggest manufacturers, media, and athletes from the wake, surf and skate industries right now. This is the time when manufacturers show off their 2008 product or Spring lines, meet with retailers to set up orders, and generally bro down until they're weak in the knees.

Here are some initial photos from the craziness that is Surf Expo. Stay tuned to alliancewake.com all weekend as we will be bringing you first looks at some of the sickest new products the wake industry has to offer.
