Readers Say
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.

SIMA postpones Surf Summit because of swine flu

SIMA said today that next week's Surf Summit has been postponed because of concerns about swine flu.

The U.S. government has recommended all non-essential trips to Mexico be canceled because of the virus.

SIMA said new dates will be announced soon, possibly by the end of the week.

We wrote yesterday that the U.S. government has joined other nations in issuing a travel warning, calling on residents to cancel all non-essential travel to Mexico.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is updating the flu epidemic on a special page on its web site.

Stories in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times and others note that flu-related deaths in Mexico have likely reached 159, and make it clear that government officials around the globe are taking the spreading illness seriously. The Orange County Register reports no cases, yet, in the U.S. home of the action sports industry.

We'll update the situation for the Surf Summit as we learn more.
