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.

Wax Research Media Day with Sonia Balmores Chung

By Press Releases
April 07, 2011 6:03 AM

 

Excitement was in the air as Dahl, followed by film crews, led attendees on a wax factory tour that included a look at the Sticky Bumps surf wax, low impact manufacturing process. He related the company's history, since 1972, with stories interspersed with humor and reflection.

 

John Dahl says, "Well over 100,000,000 surf wax bars have been produced in the factory since our beginning, all nontoxic biodegradable, by the way."

 

All were in awe of California Surf Museum's display of Bethany Hamilton's surf board that she was paddling when she was attacked. Sonya Balmores Chung posed for pictures, autographed Soul Surfer posters and along with Bethany Hamilton's brother Tim did video interviews.

 

"I had a blast at the Sticky Bumps factory!" added Sonya. "The tour was a great inside look of how dedicated they are as family business, it's no wonder they are the top producer of wax in the states. Sticky Bumps pumps out great products for the surfing industry and their team of surfers show it. The surf community may be a small sub-culture but it's powerful when we get together to support its athletes and the companies that help us do what we love to do, surf & stay on our boards!"

 

Enthusiastic comments about the day were heard from the group as they enjoyed finger sandwiches and munchies. Thanks to Vitaminwater, Smartwater, Popchips, Cliff/Luna Bars, and Sanuk for supplying swag.
