I require all our executives to read it

There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

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.

O’Neill opening in Anaheim; online in future

Here's some news courtesy of La Jolla Group CEO Toby Bost: O'Neill will open its first flagship store at a lifestyle center in Anaheim in June.


The company deliberately picked a location away from the beach and its core retailers, Toby said. The store will give O'Neill the opportunity to showcase the breadth of its brands and learn how customers react to its product without the filter of another retailer.


More flagships are planned in triple AAA locations.


The company is not interested in opening 50 or 60, but a handful, Bost said.


La Jolla does plan to open about 25 outlet stores in the next years. The first off-price store, called The Riders Outlet, opened in November in Lake Elsinore. The outlets give the company a way to sell slow moving merchandise at a profit and makes room on retail customers' shelves for fresh product.


Next up, selling direct online, which the La Jolla Group hopes to accomplish by the end of the year. The company's Metal Mulisha brand is already selling directly to consumers on the Web.


Here's Toby (above) talking about why La Jolla is going online below. He's pictured with Metal Mulisha founder Brian Deegan.
