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.

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.

In Bob Hurley's words

Bob sent me an internal memo this morning that he sent out yesterday to the team at Hurley. He wanted to give some context to the executive moves at the company.


Here it is:


"As you may know, we have conducted an extensive President search for Roger's replacement since he left to run Nike apparel 18 months ago. Frankly, I met a lot of really nice and talented folks but decided they would not be a good partner for our team. We set the bar really high. Well, we finally found someone.............. It is with great pleasure that we inform you that Mr. Roger will be returning to Hurley. Roger made a big impact at Nike, and is returning to Orange County to be closer with his kids.


Starting with Mark and Charlie, there is a complete belief in our efforts at Hurley and our collective abilities to be the best company in the Action Sports space. This is a huge vote of confidence in you as a team. We will continue to work closely with Sandy's Nike SB/6.0 team to lead in the world of Action Sports. We have a great partner with a clear focus on the future, and we certainly have the opportunity to contribute on many levels.


It is going to be so exciting to work with Roger again, both personally and professionally because we naturally compliment each other. Roger will be coming in as CEO and President. I will be Chairman. My role will continue......(and actually accelerate) to be ACTIVELY focused around Brand, Product and the Hurley Community both internally and externally. Roger will be responsible for executing our brand vision while helping us to build an increasingly profitable, first quality business. We are both fully committed to growing a smart business, while continuing to enrich our culture and Community of Hurley. We passionately want this to be the best and funnest place to work."
