Keeps me in the loop
Keeps me in the loop

Being an Executive Edition member allows me to not miss a beat when it comes to the Industry business news. Definitely keeps me in the loop plus goes great with my morning joe.

Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Aaron Pai's favorite restauarants

I'm kicking off a new feature today. I'll ask well-known people in Orange County to share where they like to eat and why.


Aaron Pai is the owner of four Huntington Surf & Sport stores, including the iconic HSS at PCH and Main Street in Huntington. HSS is hugely influential in the surf industry. All the brands want to be in his stores.


Here's Aaron telling about his two favorite restaurants:

1. The Sugar Shack, 213 Main Street, HB.

I like the Sugar Shack because they serve great food and always have great service. Michele Turner (owner) does a lot for the surfers and the community and she is always there along with her famous surfer sons, Timmy and Ryan. All the locals eat at this place.

 

 

2.Esther's Place, 6789 Warner Ave., HB, next to the Huntington Beach Post Office.

I like it because I am very much into living a healthy lifestyle and Esther's Place always has great healthy food and great service. Esther is always working behind the counter and she really does an amazing job making every customer feel very special. I consider Esther's Place one of Huntington Beach's hidden secrets and that is another reason why I like it so much. Up until this article breaks, there really hasn't been any massive crowds at the counter. ... Uh-oh, maybe I shouldn't let you know about this one!
