Since the inception of Executive Edition, I only need 1 stop

As a retailer in the surf industry for the past 21 years, I have had to use multiple sources to stay informed to the news within surf. Since the inception of the Executive Edition of Shop-Eat-Surf.com, I need only one stop. Thanks for providing such a valuable tool to all of us in the industry. Shop-Eat-Surf is a must read for all of our staff at Maui Nix.

It's well balanced information that is useful on a daily basis. I'm very satisfied with the Executive Edition. I start each day with SES and a big cup of coffee!

The Outdoor Retailer Show was even busier the second day.

 

By happy hour time on Friday, it was tough to walk through the halls. Patagonia had a concert inside its booth, Billabong hosted Donovan Frankenreiter live at its branded room, and The North Face had a huge happy hour for VF brands with key athletes giving presentations in a giant camping tent-like booth.

 

The party of the evening went to Teva, which hosted an 80’s theme party with an 80’s cover band from LA. The party was packed until 2 a.m.

 

Saturday's OR crowd didn't heat up until mid-to-late morning, with many brands using coffee machines to lure new buyers.

 

Overall, there was a consensus that a lot of action sports brands are using SUP as a vehicle to tap into the outdoor market and vice versa. I noticed a lot of outdoor brands with surf and SUP graphics on their booths.

 

And a lot of the action sports brands showcased technical apparel that can be worn not just in the surf, but also on bikes, as well as line extensions geared toward a slightly older consumer.

 

We’ll have lots of brand updates in coming weeks from all of our interviews at the show.
