Readers Say
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.

Press Release:

 

San Juan Capistrano, Calif. - April 27, 2011 - Surfing America, the National Governing Body (NGB) for Surfing in the United States, announced today the PacSun USA Surf Team for the 2011 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championships in Peru.

 

The event begins May 21st and runs through May 29th at the incredible surf breaks of Punta Hermosa. The United States brings its most talented team ever to this year's event and looks to capture the elusive World Championship Title.

 

"On paper we have maybe the best Junior Team ever," said PacSun USA Surf Team Head Coach, Ian Cairns.

 

"But we are going as underdogs with a lot to prove. The USA has never won this event; and, as underdog contenders, we're going to be the hardest working, most aggro team in Peru."

 

The surfing will take place at "Senoritas y Caballeros" in Punta Hermosa, approximately 40 minutes, or 42 kilometers from Lima. Both waves break from one to three meters over a rock bottom.

 

Señoritas is a long, fun left with plenty of power that barrels on its best days. Caballeros is a well-known classic right of Lima, with super long rides that on the best days can last up to 300 meters.

 

"Again, we have an incredible team this year," added Cairns. "Surfing America has done amazing things for the competitive surfing system in the United States--and this team is a testament to the fact that the Surfing America system is working! I believe we have a real chance against the other countries and we're looking forward to bringing the show to Peru!"
