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.

I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for the industry.

On Saturday, October 24, skate history was once again made. IASC and Skatelab held the first-ever Skateboarding Hall Of Fame at the Vans skatepark in Orange. Four skateboarders, from four different decades, were inducted at the event: Bruce Logan, Tony Alva, Danny Way, and Tony Hawk.

Don Bostick and Jim Fitzpatrick announced the winners, and Logan, Alva, and Way each said a few words. Tony Hawk was on an East Coast Birdhouse tour and couldn't make it back, so his brother Steve Hawk accepted on his behalf.

In addition to the celebration, the "Rip The Ripper" art show was on display, and there was an auction to benefit the Go Skateboarding Foundation.

The who's who of skateboarding, from yesterday and today came out of the woodwork to watch. Skateboarders and skateboarding advocates from the last 50 years all got together and told stories, caught up, and forged some new friendships, hopefully setting the pace for these events for years to come.
