The first thing I look at
The first thing I look at

I find Shop-Eat-Surf to be a very useful and informative site that I enjoy browsing daily. Shop-Eat-Surf is the first thing I look at every morning to keep up-to-date on the latest talk, events, and happenings in the industry. I must say I am a fan of Shop-Eat-Surf.

It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

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!
