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:

Paddle for Humanity recognized for Philanthropic

effort at 1st annual SUP Awards

 

San Clemente, CA, September 27, 2011 – The Paddle for Humanity (PFH) wrapped up in Washington, D.C., on August 20th after a three event run starting in Dana Point and stopping in Deerfield Beach on the way to the Capital. However, the fun didn’t stop on the banks of the Potomac. Last Thursday, SUP magazine recognized the PFH at the 2011 SUP awards, presented by Teva, with the award for top Philanthropic effort of 2011.

 

The award only further encourages the efforts of organizer, Watermans Applied Science to perpetuate the series. “The Paddle for Humanity is really a community event,” said Race Director, Watermans’ Pete Stirling.

 

“Every stop we had people coming out of the woodwork to make the PFH happen... this series really belongs to the paddling community and we are behind it 110%.” Watermans plans on expanding the 2012 series to four events.

 

In addition to the Paddle for Humanity, several Watermans Athletes were also recognized. Top Male Paddler, Connor Baxter and Top Female Paddler Jenny Kalmbach were awarded for their contribution to the growing sport of SUP. Kalmbach’s efforts on the Destination 3-degrees project were also recognized – the resulting documentary was awarded Movie of the Year.

 

The 2011 Paddle for Humanity series benefited SurfAid International; a non-profit humanitarian organization that has been instrumental in providing basic health care, malaria prevention, clean water and on-going health education programs to the people of the Mentawai Islands. The organization, which is based out of Australia, houses its US headquarters in Encinitas, CA

 

The 2011 SUP awards, presented by Teva, are produced by SUP Magazine. For photos and event details visit http://www.supthemag.com/2011-sup-awards/.
