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.

Hobie Surf Shops will take over the old Becker Surf location in Corona del Mar, Hobie Surf Shops Partner and General Manager Jake Schwaner told me.

"There was a ripe opportunity with a premier location 'Back on PCH' in a prime beach town in South Orange County," he said.

The original and long-closed Hobie store was located on PCH in Dana Point.  Hobie is currently in the midst of relocating an off-Pacific Coast Highway Dana Point store to a new location on PCH in Dana Point.

"Although we are in a "relocation" mode for our Dana Point store. ...when there is a swell you take advantage of it and go for it," Jake said. "Here we go again. We are nuts for sure!"

Hobie is leasing the Corona del Mar space but bought the building in Dana Point. The Dana Point store is expected to open on July 2.
