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

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.

The industry has arrived on the North Shore in time for the Surfer Poll Awards tonight and the start of the Billabong Pipeline Masters later this week.

 

I have been doing lots of reporting, including some store tours and interviews, and those stories will be coming.

 

Last night, I stopped by a Vans BBQ at the house they rented for the season overlooking the ocean. Vans employees were showing boardshort styles to the media and others, and mingling with key retailers that Vans has brought to the islands.

 

I have a few photos from the night, with more reporting from Hawaii to come.

 

There is lots of chatter about the exceptional waves expected later this week at Pipeline.

 

Now, I’m off for a tour of the North Shore with Michael Tomson.

 

See the slide show above for a few photos from the Vans gathering, and for a photo of an industry executive I ran into at the grocery store.
