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.

Agenda packed on day one

By Tiffany Montgomery
August 04, 2011 8:32 AM

The first day of the Agenda Trade Show got off to a busy start, with all areas of the show appearing crowded.

 

The new Pavilion space in a large tented area outside housed most of the more traditional action sports brands such as Reef, O’Neill, Quiksilver, Etnies and Fox. The space was quite busy during the day and aisles crowded.

 

The Berrics had its space in the lower level of the Hyatt Regency in Huntington Beach and was also crowded, as were the other ballrooms upstairs.

 

I saw lots of important retailers at the show including PacSun, Jack’s, Maui Nix, 17th Street, Sun Diego, Ron Jon’s, Tyler’s, South Coast Surf Shops, CCS, Tilly’s and many more.

 

Key executives were also in attendance, including Volcom CEO Richard Woolcott, Hurley Chairman Bob Hurley, Nike Global VP of Action Sports Sandy Bodecker, PacSun CEO Gary Schoenfeld and La Jolla Group CEO Toby Bost.

 

I saw some star athletes, too, including skaters Chris Cole and Eric Koston, and Brian Deegan, from the moto and rally world.

 

Above, we have lots of photos from the day.
