“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.

Brock Little Dies – The Vandalism Begins

Big wave surfing legend Brock Little has passed away from battling cancer. Brock who was notorious for paddling into large waves in the late 80’s and early 90’s when he rode for surf brands Gotcha, HIC and Rip Curl.

Now the blood sucking media (Stab, Magicseaweed, Surf Europe, among all pro surfers and their instagram) is having a go with the most famous wave ever ridden by Brock Little taken by former assistant photo editor at Surfing magazine Scott Winer. Scott took the photo from the rocks down below using a 300mm lens – manual focus. Jeff Hall from Aframe media (now owned by Surfline?) is probably wishing he had a attorney right now, but then again how are you really going to “win” against these overseas publications?
