Surf Expo in Orlando got underway Thursday and retailers and brands stayed busy showing lines and reviewing orders.

Several brand executives told me they appreciate that a lot of work gets done at Surf Expo, and several brands debuted summer lines at the show.

We have photos of who and what we saw during the first day of the event in our slide show.
