At Class at ASR, Greg Osthus, the General Manager of Atwater, talked about the Newport Beach based brand. Atwater is only three years old.

"We're a hybrid brand, like a RVCA," said Osthus describing Atwater. "We hang in skate shops, surf shops, and boutiques."

Scott MadisonAtwater's revenue is just under $5 million, but Osthus says they are growing fast.

"We're up mostly because we just started," he said. "We're going into new territories that have never seen Atwater and that's why we've seen good growth in terrible times when people are just trying to anniversary their numbers."

"Right now we're trying to get to 10 million," he said of their current goal. "We're always implementing new strategies to put into place."
