Ispo Cold Water Surfing

ISPO Cold Water Surfing – the new platform for high-tech surf equipment

When the ISPO MUNICH 2015 opens its doors from February 5 to 8 the new platform ISPO Cold Water Surfing presented by Patagonia will participate in the trade show for the first time.

ISPO Cold Water Surfing, taking place in cooperation with EuroSIMA and media partners Carve Magazine (UK), Blue Magazine (GER) and Nordic Surfers Mag (SWE), is the first European special exhibition dealing with high-tech surf equipment.

Here, brands like Rip Curl, Billabong, O’Neill, Xcel, Patagonia and Finisterre will be presenting their most innovative products. A diversified and informative side program will turn the ISPO Cold Water Surfing booth into a meeting point for the surf scene. Two times a day workshops led by the exhibiting brands will introduce chosen product highlights. Visitors and journalists will receive background information about the technical products and be able to discuss the innovations with the product developers themselves.

Every day different presentations and open discussions with top surfers like Benjamin Sanchis, Gabe Davis, Freddie Meadows, Tom Doige-Harrison and Patch Wilson will deliver interesting information about the current trends and developments in surfing. At the end of the trade show visitors can relax at the ISPO Cold Water Surfing’s bar and watch the best cold water surf clips during the daily short film sessions.
