Since the inception of Executive Edition, I only need 1 stop

As a retailer in the surf industry for the past 21 years, I have had to use multiple sources to stay informed to the news within surf. Since the inception of the Executive Edition of Shop-Eat-Surf.com, I need only one stop. Thanks for providing such a valuable tool to all of us in the industry. Shop-Eat-Surf is a must read for all of our staff at Maui Nix.

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.

Mr. Surf Junk launches Santa Barbara based online surfing museum full of surfing collectibles

(Santa Barbara, Ca) April 27, 2010-- Tom Brown is pleased to announce the launching of one of the first of its kind, virtual surfing museums containing surfing collectibles and memorabilia.

“Mr. Surf Junk is my opportunity to give back to the surfing community in a way that helps preserve our surfing history”, states Brown. “The surfing collectibles found in the museum are artifacts which I have collected over the years from my early childhood days as a young boy surfing the frigid waters of Santa Cruz.”

The website is easy to navigate. It contains articles from the 1960’s 1970’s and through the 1980’s. It allows the surfer the opportunity to visit ten different rooms displaying 500 photos, 50 photos in each room. Each photo contains a detailed description of the item being displayed. Topics touched upon include vintage surf magazines from the top publishers (some now extinct), contest posters and programs from events held around the world, movie posters and programs from some of the finest surf film makers of our time, surf books, comics, LP’s, vintage surfboard brochures and price lists, skate history, and an entire room dedicated to rare, one-of-a-kind articles. A true collection of goods from the early days of the sport.

“The launching of Mr. Surf Junk’s Surfing Museum is my way of giving back to the surfing community and keeping the stoke alive for future generations,” enthused Brown.

Prior to launching Mr. Surf Junk, Tom spent the later portion of his career working with Shaun Tomson at Solitude Clothing and the more recent re-launch of the iconic brand INSTINCT Clothing. In addition to these two ventures, Brown held the position of Sales Manager with Virginia Beach based Life On A Board and manufacturer’s rep for Oxbow clothing. Most recently he held the position of distributor for Oxbow Surfboards in Northern and Central California.
