Luke Davis Dropped From Reef – Wasserman Suing VP

Luke Davis was picked up in 2012 by Reef and 3 years later his contract was up – Reef then resigned him, but then days after his interview came out in Stab magazine he was dropped. Luke now sponsorless and his agency (Wasserman Media Group) is taking legal action against the VP Corporation (parent company of Reef).

“I just want to get good waves now. I literally haven’t been barrelled in four months, and I’m starting to completely loose my mind.” – Luke Davis/The Inertia

Nic Lamb – Surfer And Struggling Actor

Nic Lamb is by far one of the best surfers out at Mavericks in line with Grant “Twiggy” Baker, Greg Long, Peter Mel, Ken “Skindog” Collins and a handful of others.

Nic is from Santa Cruz California who at an early age was picked up by Volcom (through Volcom rep Skinny). Skinny somewhat took Nic under his wing and lead him into the surfing world. Nic’s surfing career never really took off as his surfing (besides at Mavericks) was never really looked at from the surfing media nor did he have much character (never smiled so everyone always thought he was bitter guy).

Now years later and no longer with Volcom Nic moved to Los Angeles to try a new path in acting.

Ken Collins and his buddy Nic

“I don’t have to dress like a surfer to be a surfer. I like wearing Armani tailored suits that’s how I like to dress – I like to look like a million bucks it’s fun. – Nic Lamb

“Get all dressed up like Pee-wee-Herman.” – Nathan Fletcher

SurfStich Now Worth More Then Its Former Owner Billabong

“Billabong International Limited (ASX: BBG) saw its share price crash 22.9% to $0.54 after the surfwear retailer reported that a number of headwinds had impacted on earnings by $2.5 million in the first four months, compared to the prior year.” – Motley Fool

“Online surf and skate-wear retailer SurfStitch is now worth more than former parent Billabong International after a series of acquisitions turned the former e-commerce company into a manufacturer and digital media business. In comparison, Billabong, which was worth more than $6 billion five years ago and came close to collapse in 2013, is now worth $510 million.” – The Sydney Morning Herald

“Surfstitch today announced they’d acquired Surf Hardware International (SHI), makers of FCS and other surfing hard goods. The acquisition comes after the online clothing company recently bought STAB, Magic Seaweed, and Garage Entertainment. They paid $23.7 million for SHI which takes the total of recent purchases of $50 million not including share options.” – SwellNet

Surfer Magazine Choosing To Show No Logos

Probably the biggest headache for any publisher and editor is the cover. If you throw John John Florence on the cover visibly showing all his logos one family is happy and the rest is pissed off.
It’s a constant battle trying to stroke everyone off (the big advertisers “Billabong, Hurley, O’Neill, Quiksilver, Rip Curl, Volcom, Reef, etc.”)

So we have noticed going back to 2013 Surfer magazine has yet to show any surfer on their cover which shows any logos. (Blisss Magazine does the same thing, but instead of showing photos on their covers they only show artwork)

No Logos Allowed!
