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.

Fall goods have been in stores for awhile now so I thought I'd check in with ZJ Boarding House in Santa Monica to see what is selling well. I also wanted to ask what they liked for spring. I chose ZJ Boarding House because the store is well-regarded and the brands are always excited when the shop picks up their lines.


Here's the mens report from co-owner Mikke Pierson.


Trends: There's been a strong demand for outerwear - including jackets and sweatshirts - that has surprised him. Knit and woven tops are weak.


Hot brands: Billabong is very strong in mens right now. Also, Volcom is solid in mens and womens. Others that are doing well include RVCA, Insight (from Australia), KR3W and O'Quinn.


Here's the women's report from Shelly Bihari, women's, sandals and accessories buyer:


Trends: Hoodies, sweaters and outwear are doing well, as are wide-legged trousers. Also colored denim, including purple, royal blue and maroon.


Brands: Roxy and Billabong are doing well with the wide-legged trousers and Billabong and Element with the colored denim. She said Volcom is selling well also.


What Shelly liked for spring:


The new Reef Girls line - "The fabrications are very nice. They have lots of dresses that are easy to wear and different from everyone else. For their first time out, it was very refreshing."


Billabong Girls - "They consistently looked great the last two years."
