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.

There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

Surfer celebrates 50th with party and memories

To help celebrate their 50th anniversary, the California Surf Museum hosted a night with Surfer Magazine editors from the past to the present at the Grace Theater in Oceanside, Calif.

The night kicked off with a VIP reception at the California Surf Museum followed by an evening with historical images, videos and stories from the editors and surfers who helped shape the magazine’s history.

Surfers from Skip Frye to Shaun Tomson and Rob Machado talked about what the magazine meant for their era.

“For a little kid growing up in Durban, South Africa at the other end of the world, landing the cover of Surfer was an absolute dream,” Shaun Tomson said.

Editors Drew Kampion, Sean McNulty on behalf of his father Patrick McNulty, Steve Pezman, Jim Kempton, Steve Hawk, Evan Slater, Sam George, Chris Mauro and current Surfer Magazine Editor Joel Patterson all shared stories about their reign.

The 50th Anniversary black-and-gold colored issue of the magazine features first-hand accounts from the editors including the best advice they learned at Surfer, their favorite piece during their term, and the story they wish they told but missed.
