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.

Hallandale, FL (June 6, 2011) – Adrenalina, a growing extreme sports and adventure-themed lifestyle brand, today announced the initial four-city launch of the Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon World Tour.

 

The first skateboard event of its kind, designed to promote health and fitness, and the action sports lifestyle, the 26.2-mile longboard race will debut on Governors Island in New York City on July 30, followed by events in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico (August 28) and Plano, Texas (October 16), culminating in Adrenalina’s hometown of Hallandale, Florida (November 5).

 

Fully sanctioned and governed by The USA Distance Skateboard Association, the Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon World Tour is a battle of fitness, endurance, and skateboarding prowess. Each race consists of multiple laps around a course designed to showcase each particular city, with the top winners sharing $30,000, including a grand prize of $15,000.

 

Along with performances by live bands, the Marathon will feature an Expo Village with a “festival feel,” where spectators and participants can enjoy action/extreme sport demos and purchase the latest and greatest in action and extreme sports products.

 

Committed to not only fitness and endurance, the Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon World Tour will also support the art community. Presented by Scion, an art contest will highlight unique and talented artists nationwide. Entrants are asked to design a co-branded skateboard design featuring Adrenalina and Scion.

 

These designs will be put to a public vote on July 15, and the top ten favorites will be whittled down to three by the Scion design team and invited to New York to collect their prizes during the kick-off event on Governors Island in New York.
