Readers Say
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.

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.

Industry customer Dick’s Sports Goods third quarter results turned out better than expected thanks to colder weather but the company is still cautious about the fourth quarter.

Dick’s bought Southern California based Chick’s Sporting Goods in 2007 and has reduced the number of action sports brands it carries.

Net sales: up 7.1% to $989.8 million

Consolidated same-store sales: up 1.9%, better than the 4% to 6% decline expected.

Net income: $18.9 million vs. $6.2 million the same period last year.

Inventories: down 8.6% vs. the third quarter last year.

Q4: Dick's remained cautious about the fourth quarter and expects same-store sales to decline 4% to 6%.

The company opened 11 new stores in the quarter and now operates 420 Dick’s stores in 40 states and 91 Golf Galaxy stores in 31 states.
