“PacSun’s stock has collapsed, being down roughly 90% from its 2015 high, and its status as a penny stock has it under a delisting notice. Sadly, Pacific Sunwear’s financial condition has many of the hallmarks of an approaching bankruptcy.” – John Ogg/247 Wall Street
This morning we we’re with Kelly Slater’s best friend (surfing 8ft Swamis) and we asked if this would be Kelly’s last year on tour.
“Yeah, and with Mick and Owen out he could win it.” – BFF
Kelly Slater running away from the tour!
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?

“Back in 2011, having been with Quik for eight years, Dane re-signed for another six years up until 2017, on a $3m+ a year deal.” – Stab Mag
Now fast forward the time (file claimed in 2015) Dane Reynolds was owed $3,599,381.75
…and Craig Anderson was owed $1,825,000.00
Major/critical vendors of the debtors (over $100k) from Quiksilver – we’re guessing what Dane Reynolds and Rob Dyrdek we’re owed is a lot more then $100K
