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 pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

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.

I checked in with Quiksilver yesterday to see how the company is marketing Kelly Slater’s 11th world title.

 

For his 10th, the company launched a multifaceted campaign that ranged from store windows to “wild postings.”

 

Here is what Quiksilver is doing this time around, according to Global Communications Director Catlin Rawling:

 

Quiksilver T• Ts, hats and hoodies that reference “11” online and in-stores.

 

• After he won in San Francisco, Quiksilver blanketed the beach with T-shirts, hats and signs.

• Quiksilver produced a commemorative video

• Surfline banners

• Page takeovers on Surfingmagazine.com and Surfermag.com
• Grind TV banner units


Facebook tab with sweepstakes to win a signed Channel Island board by Kelly Slater, photo gallery, video gallery, congratulate Kelly on the comments

• Retail windows

• Wholesale online ads (for example, this one at Jack's)
• Email blast - behind the scenes photos, day of the big win shots, etc.

• Print ads beginning for February books

• Limited edition T’s that say: Jordan+Kobe = Slater
