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.

SIMA Image Award winners: the full score

By Tiffany Montgomery
February 03, 2011 8:00 PM

The 8th annual SIMA Image Awards were held at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California, the first time the awards have been held in the U.S.

 

The goal: celebrate the surf industry's most original work, and honor the brands that have most advanced surf culture.

 

A crowd of more than 700 was on hand, laughing at the jokes of emcees Chris Pastras and Sal Masekela and cheering for their favorites. Without the tequila and dinner rolls, it was a much calmer, yet festive evening than some of the previous Image Awards held in Cabo San Lucas.

 

Here is the complete list of winners, and photos from the night.
