The Surf Expo was just in town, and you know what that means… We got to bring Orlando’s favorite bi-annual indoor skatepark back to life for a few days. As always people came from all over the country to try to get a piece of the action. This time around the contest was hosted by Volcom as a stop on their Wild In The Parks Tour. Here are a few pictures of some of the ripping that went on over the weekend.
