If you attended last week’s annual Surf Summit in Cabo, consider yourself very lucky. With over 25 retailors present, it was the most successful Summit yet. From early morning surf sessions, to uniquely inspiring speakers, to late night dance parties, the conference was definitely three days to remember.
Whether you were soaking up inspiration in Mexico or enviously watching from afar, we’ve got good news. Plenty of people wrote about and photographed the event as it unfolded, and we’ve rounded up the best coverage. Get ready to relieve the highlights again and again.
Bob McKnight Wows the Crowds
Bob McKnight, co-founder of Quiksilver, delivered a rousing speech that had everyone talking. He shared many important and inspiring messages, and Shop-Eat-Surf has his full speech and slides up on their website for Executive Members. If you’re not an Executive Member, the recap of the speech is pretty extensive, too. Our favorite part? “We grew the pond. Now we need to protect the perimeter.”
Words of Wisdom
TransWorld Business shared the top things they learned at Surf Summit. Their recap includes such gems as “Tell better stories,” “Think like an inventor,” and “Get back to basics.” We couldn’t agree more!
