    Surf Expo is the world's biggest watersports trade show. Taking place in Orlando, USA each year in September, the biggest brands from the world of surf, wake, SUP, kiting, windsurfing and more come together to pimp their hot new wares. We catch up with a few crews there, including Ruben Lenten and Youri Zoon before Brandon Schied and Sam Medysky tell us about the Planet of the Apes in Cape Hatteras and show us some of their favourite spots. Plus we speak to Alex Pastor in Brazil, PKRA photographer Toby Bromwich in Tarifa who talks us through some of his favourite shots, we announce the winner of our Mystic competition and launch an exciting GoPro contest that you don't want to miss out on! Jesse Richman rounds the show out with #jessetowup, plus there's lots more!

  2. Episode 10 comes at you from Tarifa, one of kitesurfing's undisputed meccas. Jo Ciastula has grown up and ridden there most of his life and helps us join the dots on this episode's features, including an interview with Jaime Herraiz. Earlier in the year we visited Airush's design lab where they have a new CNC prototype twin-tip shaping machine – we talk to shaper Clinton Filen about that. In our other main feature we cover the Triple-S with our own exclusive behind-the-scenes report and hear from the winners. Beefing out the show with our usual optic pleasures, Bruna Kajiya features in Mystic Moments, the North Trust bar winner is announced and we launch the latest competition in association with Mystic, we spill the world news, Ruben Lenten and Youri Zoon get you in shape and we round the show out with a profile of Colleen Carroll who cleaned up at the Triple-S.

  3. Episode 9 was shot in Cape Town towards the end of the South Africa summer season and we are joined by slick Brit Tom Court as guest host who gives us the benefit of his opinion on the features and riders appearing in this episode. Keahi de Aboitiz won our '2012 Video of the Year' competition voted for by you with his 'Hawaii Sessions' flick, and we get his reaction to such a prestigious award.

    Tom Court joins his boys Aaron Hadlow and James Boulding for an interview with Jim focusing on the filming of Freeride Project 2 (Sam Light almost made it back from the cable... but the filming was just too good we hear). Jim also sits down with Ryan Evans, Rich Sabo and Sam Medysky from Best to hear how they've recently expanded their riding team to include the likes of Youri Zoon and Ruben Lenten. We announce the winner of the Best Profanity board and launch the North Trust bar competition.

    The Red Bull King of the Air dominates the news section as our host Jim was a judge, so he caught loads of reaction from that and we also fill you in on the latest world tour news. This episode's Move of the Month features a bunch of Amercian Gangstas, Youri Zoon relives winning the 2012 PKRA World Title in Mystic Moments and we close the show out with our video of the year 2012, Hawaii Sessions.
