The one, undisputed leader
The one, undisputed leader

It is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

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 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.
