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.

KR3W says it is not impacted by Rays news

I checked in yesterday with Scott VanDerripe, a partner in One Distribution, maker of KR3W clothing and Supra shoes, as the rumors swirled about the closure of Rays Apparel. I wasn't sure if the companies were related.


Here's what Scott had to say:


"(The Rays Apparel closure) has no effect on One Distribution. Business at One Distribution is completely separate. ...One Distribution is not partnered with Rays, however we do share some manufacturing sources.


"On a good note, business with KR3W and Supra at One Distribution is doing great. We will finish 2008 above plan and our Q1 bookings for 2009 are 55% above our bookings from Q1 of 2008."
