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.

It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Staff reduced today at DC Shoes

Layoffs hit DC Shoes today, a Quiksilver spokesman confirmed this afternoon.

Parent company Quiksilver has experienced layoffs at its Quiksilver and Roxy brands in the past as it moved to cut costs due to the recession and its debt load. The spokesman said about 10 percent of the workforce was cut previously at Quiksilver and Roxy, and the DC reductions are of similar size on a percentage basis.

Quiksilver reports earnings next Thursday and more details are expected to be released at that time.

DC has been Quiksilver's best-performing brand and its major growth vehicle. A new financing deal with the private equity firm Rhone allowed Quiksilver to keep the brand rather than sell it to pay off debt.

We'll report more details of this story when they become available.
