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.

Within a short time the action sports industry has grown into a global influencer on mainstream brands, retailers, designers, and those alike worldwide. But although the industry has progressed tremendously since its beginnings, EXSIC’s which stands for The Extreme Sports Industry Connection, claims that there is a key element missing that is needed to move action sports business to the next level.

 

So what is it that EXSIC’s 22 year old Founder, Paul Heil III, quoted as “The American kid who grew up but never grew out of action sports“ is looking to promote within the industry?

 

The young founder currently based in Bratislava, Slovakia of all places aims to build a bridge from the US market to the European market via EXSIC‘s action sports conference Skate Surf Snow meant to be held this November 4th in Budapest Hungary.

 

Paul claims it is such events as Skate Surf Snow that plays a key role in keeping the industry educated with personal case studies and experiences shared from industry leaders and face to face networking that will push the industry to the next level.

 

The conference also hosts some fun aspects, like being held at an indoor skate park with a concluding local skate tournament, followed by a networking party in downtown Budapest.

 

The event is souly supported on industry donations and sponsorship as EXSIC is a non – profit organization.You can check out the event HERE, and donate to support the cause HERE.
