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.

RVCA's Global Marketing Director Skye McRae sent me some photographs from RVCA's "Family Tree" art show in San Francisco.

The show and party were held in RVCA's art gallery and retail store, VASF Gallery on the corner of Haight and Ashbury. It's RVCA's first retail store, and the company is the latest manufacturer to venture into the retail world. Quiksilver, Billabong, Volcom, Rip Curl and Burton all have stand alone stores.

RVCA says local retailers are supportive of the store. But industry-wide, manufacturers' stores in general are a controversial issue with retailers who carry the manufacturers' clothes.

Many feel that they have supported the manufacturers for years and now those same companies are competing with them. Manufacturers, however, believe opening their own stores is the best way to showcase the breadth of their brands.

I have some more in-depth questions about RVCA out to owner Pat Tenore. Hopefully, I'll get them answered soon and I'll post them when I do.
