The first thing I look at

I find Shop-Eat-Surf to be a very useful and informative site that I enjoy browsing daily. Shop-Eat-Surf is the first thing I look at every morning to keep up-to-date on the latest talk, events, and happenings in the industry. I must say I am a fan of Shop-Eat-Surf.

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.

Skate ambassador Aaron Astroga joins O'Quinn marketing team

April 06, 2010 7:01 AM

(Encinitas, CA) Known as one of the most versatile athletes within the surf, skate and snow arenas, O’Quinn adds another red hot player to their ever growing roster of friends and family with the addition of skate legend, Aaron Astorga.

The inaugural 2008 Ultimate Boarder champion and winner of the $50,000usd prize purse, now joins 24 year old skate phenom, Tosh Townend and budding surf star Ryan Carlson to its unique and diverse team. Acting as part team manager and team rider, Aaron’s duties will range from special events marketing and sales support within San Diego and beyond, prospecting new ambassadors for the team and much more. With this addition, O’Quinn takes one step further into the skate market.

“I’m really happy with my new position at O’Quinn and very proud to be a ambassador for the team.” say’s Mr. Astorga. “They’ve given me an opportunity to build something from scratch and you just don’t get opportunities like that too often.” “My first intentions for the brand is to create a local buzz around North County where I live, and develop a grass roots program with shop kids and local friends.” “This will resonate much better with natives.”

Founder Dean Quinn, O’Quinn had this to say about Astorga... “Double A is the coolest guy ever and is very well liked within our industry, the decision to bring him on board here at O’Quinn was very easy to make. He has a good relationship with Tosh (Townend) and the rest of the team and we know he will be a strong asset to the brand.”

Sales VP, Co Founder, Dale Rhodes say’s, “Aaron is an awesome addition to the brand.” “He has a marketing background which is a big plus with any athlete you bring aboard, and he’s still active in professional sports.” “We didn’t hesitate with Aaron, he’s represents the so cal lifestyle that we embrace.”
