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.

TRAVIS RICE SIGNS WITH UNION BINDING COMPANY

 

Seattle, WA (January 27, 2012) — Union Binding Company is proud to announce the addition of The Art Of Flight mastermind and 2012 Snowboarder Magazine Rider of the Year Travis Rice to the Union Binding team.

 

One of the most pivotal riders in existence, T.Rice is known for executing impossible tricks in impossible situations and generally just thinking big—both on and off the board. In the past decade, he has diligently brought real freestyle to serious backcountry lines. Rice has driven large-scale concept films like That’s It, That’s All, The Art Of Flight and Supernatural—exposing his own talent and snowboarding as a whole on a bigger stage than ever before. Travis brings envelope-pushing talent and career-defining ingenuity to the Union Binding Family.

 

Says Rice about the deal, “It’s amazing what Union has been able to achieve in the past eight years. More than just making the best bindings on the market, they have created a successful business with family values. I’m very proud and honored to join the incredible Union team.”
