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.

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."
