Since the inception of Executive Edition, I only need 1 stop

As a retailer in the surf industry for the past 21 years, I have had to use multiple sources to stay informed to the news within surf. Since the inception of the Executive Edition of Shop-Eat-Surf.com, I need only one stop. Thanks for providing such a valuable tool to all of us in the industry. Shop-Eat-Surf is a must read for all of our staff at Maui Nix.

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.

Report and photos from IASC Summit

By Tiffany Montgomery

I drove to the Tehachapi at the end of last week for the International Association of Skateboarding Companies Industry Summit.

IASC SummitLunch on the last day of the IASC Summit.

The three-day event included a keynote address from Kevin Lyman, creator of the Warped Tour, several panels on topics such as financial planning and banking, professional skateboarding contests, and tips on preparing, thriving and surviving in a down economy and lots of eating, drinking and mingling.

The overall mood was upbeat - there wasn't a lot of doom and gloom talk going on. A few company leaders told me their March numbers had been decent and while they said it was too early to call it a trend, it was a least a positive sign.

I really enjoyed getting to know more people in the skateboard industry and plan to write more about skate in the future.

Here are some photos from the summit.
