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.

The Surf Industry Manufacturers Association and the Board Retailers Association are coming together for Surf Summit 13 in Los Cabos, Mexico.

The two groups are unifying their annual conferences as a way to better represent the breadth of the industry, unify the entire industry and attract even more leaders to the event, according to a press release.

“We look forward to the synergy of having retailers and manufacturers in one place discussing issues and concerns facing the surf industry, learning about ways to better improve our businesses and at the end of the day, having a drink and bettering our friendships,” Duke Edukas, BRA Co-Chair and Co-Owner of Surfside Sports, said in the release.

Surf Summit 13 will be held May 12-15 at the Crowne Plaza Resort, the same venue as last year.
