The one, undisputed leader
The one, undisputed leader

It is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

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.

Press Release:

 

Malibu, CA (September 12, 2011) - The Vans Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational went down this past weekend, September 9 and 10, at world-famous Surfrider Beach in Malibu, CA, with 16 of the best longboarders in the world riding 12-lb, single fin leashless boards along with some serious style and nose riding all for a $10,000 purse.

 

The first Southern California stop of the series came through with fun surf, beautiful weather and big crowds and was held in conjunction with the Malibu Surf Association's MSA Classic.

 

After whittling the initial 16 down to the four finalists, Alex Knost took home $4,000 for first place, Justin Quintal $3,000 for second, Christian Wach $2,000 for third and Harrison Roach pocketed $1,000 for fourth spot. Knost's win in Malibu follows a first place finish in the Duct Tape Invitational in Santa Cruz earlier this year.

 

Introduced last year at the East Coast Surfing Championships in Virginia Beach, the Duct Tape Invitationals are an innovative series of events Vans developed with Joel Tudor showcasing longboarding in its purest aesthetic and pushing the envelope on traditional longboarding technique.

 

In addition to Virginia Beach, Vans has brought the Duct Tape Invitational to legendary Ditch Plains in Montauk, NY, Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz, CA, and Playa Salinas in Salinas, Spain.
