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.

Surfline and Hurley raise $5,000 for earthquake relief

Rob Machado and Bob Hurley joined the Surfline crew to serve up drinks at the A restaurant in Newport Beach last week.

It was a cocktails-for-a-cause benefit, and it raised more than $5,000 for SurfAid's Sumatran earthquake relief fund.

SurfAid said on its web site that it launched an Emergency Response Appeal to help the people of Padang who were hit by a 7.9 earthquake on September 30.

SurfAid's Program Director, David Lange, narrowly escaped death as he fled the Ambacang Hotel, which then collapsed, killing many and trapping others, the site says.

Donations to SurfAid's earthquake relief fund may be spent on recovery and development work in the disaster affected areas.

Here are a few of the photos that Brecht Van'thof shot of the event for Hurley. You can see more photos on Hurley's web site, by clicking here.
