Dear all,

AWSI, the Association of Wind and Watersports Industries, will be hosting the 2018 Board Sports Expo August 14-17 at the Event Site in Hood River, OR. For the past several years AWSI has endorsed Surf Expo in Orlando as our venue to bring manufacturers and dealers to the same place. The growing need from our membership and industry has demanded a demo aspect to the trade show. Given the timing of product releases for brands, locations where it is the windy season, amenities, venue, etc. It was ultimately determined that Hood River was the place to do this.

We know the Event Site is a busy place so we made our Event Tuesday-Friday to lessen our impact on general public use. Here are a few things:

-The grass area/demo area is closed to the public. Dealers only inside this area.

-We are leaving a large area of grass on the east side of the Event Site for pump and dry and for getting to the sand bar.

-The east half of the parking lot is open to the public.

-The Spit, Marina, and Wunderbar are always options.

-The water, as always, is open to the public.

-Keep your ear out for nightly events and parties, there will certainly be some somewhere.

This event may very well bring in a fair amount of people. Shops, schools, and brands along with their riders and employees will be here demoing the new gear and getting people stoked on the 2019 line. It will be a busy place. There will be some high profile shredders out there including all of your local favorites. I very much suggest getting on the water with them and having a good time.

Thank you to everyone in advance for sharing the space and that includes myself. Events like this have to happen in order to keep the industry cohesive and strong. For more information on the event visit windkitesup.org/boardsportsexpo

See you on the water,
Cody Cornett, Executive Director.

Sweet!
Next step for the waterfront: make the Northwave/Tofurkey building into an expo center. Or better yet, tear it down which would clean up the Event Site wind and create a continuous waterfront park
