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.

The San Francisco based company, founded in 2009, produces a portable speaker designed to withstand demands of the transient snow-skate-surf lifestyle.

 

The company’s product has picked up many accolades from within the action sport community, and the addition of Chet Thomas as an advisor/investor is an affirmation of such.

The partnership with Chet as an advisor/investor is proof of the brand being welcomed into the action sports community.

This is the kind of entrepreneurial innovation that we really value at our company. Chet will be a great help in opening up doors for our distribution network and providing advice to our team.”

 

Like other members of the action sports community before him, he sees this as an opportunity to leverage years of branding to create a partnership with a young brand with tremendous potential.
