Peter Taras No Longer Photo Editor At Surfing Magazine

We just got off the phone with our good buddy Peter Taras and he has confirmed he is no longer the photo editor at Surfing Magazine, but Jimmy Wilson (former assistant photo editor) is taking over. Peter will now oversea all website and social media aspects for their website.

Jimmy gave Peter a nice farewell package – Peter landing this months cover shot of Kolohe Andino surfing on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier. The 50ft American flag provided by the Ten group.

Hey wait a minute Mr. Taras – did you get the whole “flag” idea from our shoot with Scotty Stopnik?

“The Englewood, Colo.-based chain — owned by Los Angeles-based private equity firm Leonard Green & Partners — filed for bankruptcy Wednesday, citing $1.1 billion in debt and saying that its sales had slumped after it failed to keep up with consumer trends. Nearly one-third of the retailer’s locations will begin liquidation sales within days. The list includes 25 stores in Texas, 19 in California, 18 in Florida and 11 in Illinois.” – USA Today

“In the action sports space, Burton is owed $3.9 million, K2 $2.5 million and Rip Curl $2.5 million, according to court documents. Large athletic brands are owed the most money, however. According to the court documents, Sports Authority owes Nike $47.9 million, Asics $23.3 million, and Under Armour $23.2 million.” – Tiffany Montgomery
