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.

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.

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
