I am a big fan of Tiffany and her team as well as an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf. I shop, I eat, I surf -- I should pay.

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.

Huntington Surf & Sport hosted an induction ceremony for the Surfers’ Hall of Fame Friday morning, including an emotional tribute and standing ovation for Hawaiian George Downing.

 

During the ceremony, Downing was described as a pioneering big wave rider, innovative board shaper, Waikiki beachboy, mentor, contest director and all-around waterman.

 

Downing and the other inductees left their footprints and wrote inscriptions in concrete. Downing wrote, “Save our surf, surf with Aloha.”

 

“When Duke was around, you didn’t dare not surf with aloha,” Downing said during his speech.

 

He also said, “We have a religion, surfing is a religion. It’s God’s gift to all of us. We must remember to cherish it.”

 

Other inductees on Friday included local long-time Huntington Beach surfer Chuck Linnen, Simon Anderson, an Australian best known for developing the “Thruster” design of three equal-size fins, and Taylor Knox, part of 1990’s “New School” crew that replaced the 80’s power surfers.

 

Those honored and their families and friends were treated to a lunch at Surfline headquarters after the ceremony.
