January 25, 2010 - Surf Nano Products introduces "nanotechnology" to a global audience at Surf Expo


 SNP's booth at the 2010 Surf Expo in Orlando was the focal point for some of the most high-tech networking in recent years. Team riders, manufacturers, shop owners, and nano-geeks converged on Booth #508 in big numbers to find the source of the "buzz" for faster boards!

As a result of the show, some of the world's largest board manufactuers are now conducting independent testing of SNP on the most high-performance boards. Company founders Andy Giordano and Howard Loveless with SNP's worldwide Sales and Marketing Director Tom Warnke, described how SNP's nano-particles seal pores at the molecular level so water flows more quickly across a board's surface.

   Hawaiin big wave legend Darrick Doerner staked out his spot with SNP by arriving with two fire-engine-red Wiamea guns shaped by Dick Brewer. Just 24 hours before arriving in Florida, Darrick had been surfing huge Wiamea waves using SNP on his personal big wave board. The week before, he tested SNP at Jaws with the same great results. As SNP's R&D Consultant for board sports, "Double D" gave first hand to Helga Goebel (SNP SUP Team Rider and Florida Sales Rep) as well as a variety of riders, from pro surfers, windsurfers, kiteboarders, skimboarders, and some of the best SUP riders in the world.
  Pat Emery, ESA All-Star Coach, has the entire team on SNP. SNP will continue our support of the Eastern Surfing Association (ESA) in 2010, holding beach demos at the ESA Scholastic Championships, the three ESA Regional Championships, and the Easterns
