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.

The one, undisputed leader
The one, undisputed leader

It is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

Friday notes: Quik chases women and more

A couple of quick hits headed into the weekend.

 

Quiksilver announced Thursday it would debut a clothing line for women in fall 2008. Aimed at 18 to 24 year olds, the collection will be positioned at the "better-best end of the juniors spectrum," CEO Bob McKnight said in a statement. The line will be called "Quiksilver." Summer Rapp is the vice president of design for the new effort.

Opera singer Plácido Domingo will make an appearance from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Montblanc store at South Coast Plaza. Domingo is supporting Montblanc's UNICEF campaign, "The Power to Write." The pen company has released a special-edition Meisterstück 149 fountain pen to kick off its global campaign with UNICEF. A portion of the sales from the pen will be donated to support the organization's education programs around the world.


Cordell Surfboards and Newport Surf Camp are partnering with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for a special event Saturday evening.

Starting at 5 p.m., more than 10 kids fighting cystic fibrosis will receive surf lessons off 54th Street in Newport Beach. Cordell Miller and 10 other surfers will be giving lessons and tips. Following the clinics, Cordell Surfboards will host an auction at 7:30 p.m. to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The Pawn Shop Kings will perform and BJ's Restaurant & Brewery will provide pizza.
