On Rump, along with heavy water masters Kai Lenny, Lucas China, and Sebastian Steiner were the standouts in the 60- to 80-foot monster surf. Come hell or high water, Kealey Kennedy, the big wave icon known for her fearless approach in all conditions, is relentless.
Though it was from a Jaws' session in December 2019, the same series of swell continued into January 2020, Billy Keeper scored the Ride of the Year. A tribute to Derek Ho with Diego Guerrero, Peter Mel sits down with Kealey Kennedy, plus “On Hold” with the Baseman bros.
With specialty events in Lemaitre, Brazil, France, Portugal and Australia, it gave some of our favorite Championship Tour surfers the opportunity to pull on the jersey and get their feet in the wax again. One of the bright spots was the Boost Mobile Pro Gold Coast at South Straddle, where we saw Mikey Wright dominate the field with his forehand barrel riding.
The WSL Desk crew walks us through a massive day of competition to kick off the Boost Mobile Pro Gold Coast. Because wipe outs on gigantic waves are so entertaining, this post is dedicated mostly to that category.
Hawaii’s Mauá Rothman was named winner for an over-the-falls thumping he endured last May 22 at Cloud break in Fiji. We’ve posted video of Rothman’s wipe out, followed by video showing all five Wipe out of the Year nominees, so viewers can judge for themselves whether judges were correct in selecting Rothman.
Baker did not not safely emerge after being covered inside a massive jaw (Maui) barrel last Nov. 26, and his selection as Ride of the Year winner sparked a fair bit of controversy during and after the awards ceremony. Because of this controversy, we’ve posted video showing all five Ride of the Year nominees, so viewers can judge for themselves whether Baker should have won.

It’s nice to know that those freestyle snowmobiles who fly down mountains and jump over trees can screw up too. YouTube recently turned up a gem of a video showing some of these crashes, and we thought you’d like to see them too.
I've just posted my third closed trade for the public to see: Premium Resources (PVG). After disappointing results from the company, I was just happy to get all of my money back.
There was another sideways trade as well, resulting in an average gain of about 20% and a 16.4% ROI. Back in my Casey Research days, I said numerous times that I thought Premium was a great speculation, and that if I were free to own the stock, I would buy shares.
I have several reasons for this, but it boils down to the company struggling to deliver consistent output at its flagship Bruce jack gold mine. The key point is that when results disappointed, I did not let pride, hope, or fear of negative publicity stop me from selling.
It's one thing to acknowledge the bad with the good and defend a company that has more positives than negatives to its story. It's quite another to refuse to see important negatives and stay in a bad trade until it destroys one's capital.
The great danger here is what psychologists call “confirmation bias.” I've lost money staying in bad trades too long before.
My pledge to subscribers is not that I'll never lose, but that I'll be as brutally honest as I can with them and myself about all my trades. Further, my due diligence never ends: I keep on looking for holes in the story after I've bought in.
In this context, I want to invite you to participate in my next live-streaming session. But then we'll go into a Q&A session, to which I hope participants will bring any and all data, ideas, and views that differ from my own.

Huge daily infection spikes are slowing in Bergen County, with New Jersey's most Covid-19 cases, another big sign that the curve is flattening, Governor Phil Murphy said. But even in June, as nonessential retailers were beginning to reopen their doors and, in some cases, reported upbeat signals about returning foot traffic, the worst was not over for apparel chains.
July and August brought a raft of failures: Lucky Brand, Brooks Brothers, and Ann Taylor’s parent company filed for bankruptcy; so did New York & Co.’s corporate parent as well as the storied department store Lord & Taylor, which soon resulted in those two chains liquidating. Commerce Department figures show clothing-store sales through November were down 28.5% from a year earlier, the worst decline of any retailing segment, including restaurants.
The goods offered by apparel stores haven’t been in high demand amid stay-at-home living, which has hurt foot traffic to these centers. And the enclosed mall format does not, in a pandemic, hold the safety appeal of e-commerce or outdoor shopping centers, which has kept a lid on the number of people willing to stop in and browse.
According to a recent report from S&P Global Intelligence, several other mall Rests have similar, and in some cases even worse, traffic declines than those that fell into bankruptcy. Surviving mall-based retail chains might pick up some market share and have a stronger hand in lease negotiations with landlords.
Jay Sole, a UBS retail analyst, wrote in a December research note that poor holiday sales could lead to a wave of store closings and liquidations among apparel and accessories sellers in the first quarter of 2021. Even for the clothing retailers that make it through the worst of the public-health crisis, I worry some will continue to have problems because of the ways American consumers have retrained themselves during the pandemic.
Target Corp., for instance, recorded a 10% increase in comparable sales from a year earlier in its apparel business in the latest quarter. That almost certainly represents the big-box giant taking market share from the likes of Macy’s Inc. and Kohl’s Corp. as customers aim to do one-stop shopping to reduce potential exposure to the coronavirus.
Demand for sparkly dresses, leather pants and beach caftans will return as soon as proms, first dates and vacations do. The Gap Inc.-owned chain is doing the right thing by shifting its assortment toward sweatshirts and jogger pants, but it will be difficult for it to compete with the likes of Nike Inc. or Lululemon Athletica Inc., who have years of brand loyalty built up in the categories.

Once settled, farmers, ranchers and people living in small towns across America looked to the hundreds-pages thick Sears and Roebuck catalog to buy back civilization. Richard Sears and Allah Roebuck bypassed local merchants by offering customers more goods and lower prices.
They supplied tools, dresses, stoves, sporting goods, plumbing parts, phonographs, guitars, washing machines and toiletries to a hungry market. In 1906, Sears held the first major retail IPO in American financial history.
By post-World War 2 America, the company created dependable product lines like Kenmore for housewives, Craftsman tools for men and DieHard car batteries. In an era when quality and quantity were not always assured, Sears and Roebuck played a massive role.
Based in their railroad hub of Chicago, tons of merchandise poured out to all points of the compass. Sears was the largest retailer on the planet until 1989, when Walmart ran away with the title and kept on running.
Despite a heritage of innovation and revolutionary retailing, Sears management today struggles to maintain a position. Sears raised its stock price last year by selling off hundreds of stores, shining the shell of a once innovative, future-forward company.
Another wipe-out standout is American Apparel: AA founder Do Carney has emerged as exactly the wrong role model for aspiring leaders. But Target's handling of the compromised information was a public relations wipe-out that has tarnished what used to be a trend-forward company.
Days and weeks went by as Target shoppers wondered how the company would handle the leak. Companies including Jet Blue, J.C. Penney, 7-Eleven, Staples, Newman Marcus, UPS, Goodwill, P.F.
Chang's, Sally's Beauty Supply, Michael's, Home Depot, and others have all been hacked. In the days following the hack, shoppers joked awkwardly at Target checkouts about the security breach.
This week, Target announced the hire of Mike McNamara, chief information officer at U.K.-based retailer Tesco, to replace retiring CIO Bob Decodes. McNamara will lead the technology team in its ongoing digital security and omnichannel efforts.
Let’s hope McNamara remembers that when security cracks appear quick response is mandatory. Samsung started as an export company in Korea in 1938, selling dried fish, vegetables, and fruit to Manchuria and Beijing.
Following the Korean War, Samsung added insurance to their roster and in 1969 started Samsung-Sanyo Electronics, creating their black and white T.V. When the company started making cheap consumer electronics, including washers, dryers and refrigerators, they saw opportunity.
They started competing in smartphones and--through a series of terrific advertising ideas, differentiated their brand and made their presence known. Samsung is a mighty conglomerate with importing, construction and other assets that balance their books.
The Galaxy halo beams across a swathe of household items including refrigerators, washers, dryers, televisions and more.

The ability to shape and attract more new fans to the Brand community is (or should be) on everyone's performance list. Re-establishing your legacy, reframing what makes you relevant for today's online and offline experience, creating a new lexicon for those moments, reminding people what you are not and never want to become, and creating a meaningful context for that conversation--are tasks everyone inside organizations everywhere should be thinking about.
