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.

Blitz owner Per Welinder sent me this release on Friday announcing Momentum Wheel Co. has joined the Blitz family.

For a more detailed update on Blitz, click here.

Here is the release:

Blitz Distribution is proud to announce a new license partnership with Momentum Wheel Co. Blitz will now be responsible for all international and U.S. distribution for the wheel brand while Ultimate Skateboard Distribution continues to hold down the business in Canada.

Momentum is part owned by pro skater, Rick McCrank and ex-Bones Brigade pro, Kevin Harris, who also owns Ultimate Skateboard Distribution in Richmond, B.C.
"Per Welinder [President of Blitz] and I go way back to being skaters on the famous Bones Brigade in the ‘80s. We've always had a great friendship and business relationship so it was a natural progression to form a partnership bringing Momentum to a bigger market with Blitz," explains Kevin Harris. "We are all looking forward to continued growth and working closely with Blitz in the U.S."

Momentum Wheel Co, based out of Metro Vancouver, B.C., Canada, recently celebrated ten years of producing top quality urethane. Its pro team currently consists of Rick McCrank, Brandon Biebel, Chris Haslam, Corey Sheppard, Toeda Yoshiaki and Jose Rojo while the Momentum am team consists of Mike Barker, Magnus Hanson, Travis Stenger, Morgan Smith and Nate Lacoste.
