Fat Bastard Surf Company Announces Selection for 2007 Surf Expo “Launch”

Fat Bastard Surf does not focus on an age group, but a weight group.  FB surf wear starts at size XL (where other’s end) and goes up to 4X and 5X respectively with the ability to go farther.  Surfboards and body boards have extra buoyancy, manufactured wider and thicker without losing maneuverability for the above average individual.  The company also carries accessories and ladies apparel that display the pride of what people have worked so hard to grow.

Owners and representatives of Fat Bastard Surf Company will be in Booth 246 in the “Launch” section of Surf Expo in Orlando, Florida, Sept 14th – 16th 2007.  The full line of Fat Bastard Surf products and Opu-Nui Surf & Sport bodyboards and apparel will be presented.  Both lines specialize in providing larger size products for those who dare be more than average!

Surf Expo’s Launch began in 2006, offering companies the chance to expose their products to select retail experts.  Launch judges the applicants on innovation, design and manufacturing quality, image and branding, marketability, originality, and distinction in the marketplace.  For the 2007 Launch competition, more than 80 applications were received from a wide variety in the board, beach, and fashion markets.  Of these original applicants, only 25 companies make it to the semi-finals with one more cut to the final 10.  The competition was fierce.  Fat Bastard Surf Co. has been chosen to be among the 10 winning companies to be “Launched” at the Surf Expo.
