Quiksilver Is For Sale

“Quiksilver Inc., the surfwear chain that has lost more than three-quarters of its value this year, is looking for a buyer that could help keep the company afloat, according to people familiar with the matter. The goal is a management-led buyout, ideally outside of a bankruptcy, that would let the company retain its stores.” – Bloomberg

Peter Taras (Photo Editor of Surfing Magazine) Selling All His Camera Gear

“Hello Facebook World! I’m selling a bunch of my photo gear. Pass this onto to anyone you may know who’s interested in sports photography or surf photography. I priced most of all this equipment at the very lower level of the used pricing chart even though a lot of my equipment is in better condition than the price dictates. If you’re interested place private message me. Prices are firm. Gunna wait it out for a year and see what happens with cinema cameras. . I got some loner program stuff I can use until then.” – Peter Taras

“This photo editor sold his camera kit, you’ll never believe what he did next!” – Morgan Massen

We’re not sure if this is the beginning of the end for Peter at Surfing Magazine or if he is truly is waiting for cinema cameras. We call BS on Pete! If your waiting for cinema cameras which is fine, but why then would you be selling your lenses that would go on these cameras? (keeping your trusty 50mm?)

…and in other “The Enthusiast Network” news (owners of Surfer and Surfing magazine) editor-in-chief Brendon Thomas of Surfer Magazine for the past 5 years has now left to join forces with The Surfers Journal.

So there you have it, a photo editor selling his gear and a editor that has left his position for a magazine that’s not going anywhere…

Ryan Drexler Wants Quiksilver Sold!

“There is no indication of any creative effort in terms of fashion design or advertising and marketing,” Mr. Drexler said in his letter dated March 9. “Given the emerging accounting and legal problems, declining consumer demand and lack of creativity…I cannot see a reason to place faith in the current management’s turnaround plan. In my opinion, the promise of better times being just around the corner is nothing more than wishful thinking.

I again urge you and the Board to unlock the value of the company’s well known brand names, global retail and wholesale presence and supply chain by exploring a sale of the company to maximize shareholder value consistent with the board’s fiduciary obligations.” – Ryan Drexler
