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.

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.

Two day expo features Yater tribute, PT Vs Shaun Tomson, appraisals, art, film, board demos, seminars and much much more.

Encinitas, Ca. (April 2, 2010) -- The widest category range of surfboard designs ever assembled will be on display at the Sacred Craft Consumer Surf Expo in Ventura, Ca. Long, short, no fin, 5 -fin, wide, narrow, thick, thin, old, new, wood, foam, carbon, hand shaped, molded, standup, kneeboard, handplane, you name it, the surfboard is front and center at Sacred Craft. J7, Tomo, Cooperfish, Danny Hess, Fineline, and Wegener are among the many talented craftsman, manufacturers and designers exhibiting at the expo -- a full list is below.

"It is not fair and quite frankly rather impossible to pigeon-hole the exhibitors into any one category," said Expo Director Scott Bass. "Really the only category on display at Sacred Craft is passion; a passion that manifests itself as a cornucopia of surf design ideas with limitless synergy."

Surfboards remain at the very core of every surfers' experience and therefore at the core of Sacred Craft. However, in and around the expo are some exciting elements that are sure to stoke the large crowd expected at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

The Tribute to the Masters Shape-off presented by US Blanks and honoring legend Renny Yater has six shapers (Todd Proctor, Wayne Rich, Matt Moore, Michel Junod, Nick Palandrani, Dennis Ryder) replicating a classic Yater Spoon. In addition, Yater has curated, along with the Surfing Heritage Foundation, a "BOARDS OF RINCON" exhibit; a chronological time-line of the boards ridden at the legendary Queen of the coast.

Transworld SURF is hosting "Surf Nerd", a trivia game show which will pit former world Champ Peter Townend (1976) against former world champ Shaun Tomson (1978) in a battle of surf trivia knowledge.

In the SurfersVillage Grotto Robb Havassy's Surf Story Project artist collective studio & gallery will present a unique array talent painting the day away. SURF STORY PROJECT book signings will take place and tons great deals on art. Next door, the Korduroy.tv lounge is running a unique short film program.

Also on tap are the seminars/panel discussion including one fiery topic, The Impact and Ethics of Standup Paddling. Tons of other stuff to see including live glassing, laminating, Young Guns of Shaping demo (featuring PacSun USA Surf Team member Andrew Doheny), art, culture, music, food, and family fun (an HD broadcast of the Masters).
