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.

Here are some images from the three-day conference in Cabo San Lucas.


The event was held at the Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar Resort & Spa. The mornings were free for surfing, hanging by the pool, golfing or fishing. The speaker sessions took place in the afternoon. At night, there were parties and dinners and a bar crawl.
