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 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.

Spy parent swings to profit

Sales and gross margins improved at Orange 21, Inc., the parent company of Spy Optic, and the company swung to a profit after reporting a loss in the same period last year.

Net sales rose 5% to $9.5 million.

Gross margins increased to 58% vs. 46% in the same period last year.

The company reported net income of $408,000 vs. a loss of $254,000 in the same period last year.

The company said it benefited from better sourcing costs in Asia and a more favorable Euro exchange rate. However, it still recorded a profit even with additional costs from its new brands, Margaritaville and Melodies by MJB, which have not realized sales yet.

The company's stock is now traded in the Pink Sheets under the symbol ORNG.
