USA Longboard Team in Peru at ISA World Longboard Championships
Tweet PRESS RELEASE Surfing America, the National Governing Body for the sport of surfing in the USA, is pleased to announce the first ever PacSun USA Longboard Team is in Huanchaco, Peru, competing in the ISA World Longboard Championships. The team consists of returning ISA World Team members Tony Silvagni and Taylor Jensen, who were joined by the winners of the Surfing America USA Championships at Church, San Onofre State Beach, last June. The team consists of 2 Open Men, 1 Woman and 1 Junior. The woman competitor is Rachael Tilly, 15, from Capistrano Beach, CA. Rachael won the surf off of the top 8 Association of Surfing Professionals North America Women Longboarders at the USA Championships in June. Nick Anderberg won the Junior Longboard Division at the USA Championships and, with it, the coveted Juniors’ slot on the USA Longboard Surf Team. The Surfing America Program, which includes regional member organizations Atlantic Surfing Federation, Eastern Surfing Association, Hawaiian Surfing Association, National Scholastic Surfing Association and Western Surfing Association, has been able to develop great surfers in each region through participation in their regional associations’ competitions and bring them together in June at the Surfing America USA Championships to compete for the ultimate USA Champion Title. Coach and former World Champion, Ian Cairns, is impressed with the level of talent on the team. “Tony and Taylor are proven world champions and our new talent, Rachael and Nick are excited for the opportunity to show their significant skills on the world stage. We are looking forward to the opportunity of bringing home a Gold Medal.” “We are stoked to see the International Surfing Association run a separate Longboard Championship,” said Surfing America executive director, Greg Cruse. “There are so many talented longboarders coming through our member associations, it is great to see a path beyond USA Championships for them. Very cool to see two WSA surfers come through the ranks and have an opportunity to surf for their country in the ISA World Longboard Championships.” Follow the PacSun USA Longboard Surf Team live at www.isawlsc.com beginning today through September 28!

The team moved to a gorgeous arena just three years ago, and the facility has since been awarded a number of high-profile events including the 2012 NHL Draft, the 2013 NCAA Frozen Four and the Three Rivers Classic college hockey tournament. Now, the city gets to host the 2013 CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game this Thursday, with Johnson and fellow Penguins alum and three-time Stanley Cup champion Joe Mullen returning to serve as the head coaches. You get in the late 80s and early 90s and Mario, Craig Patrick, my dad and Scotty Bowman put together a team that won a Stanley Cup, and all of a sudden you created excitement, said Johnson, who is currently the head coach of the womens hockey team at his alma mater Wisconsin. They won it the following year. Then Sidney comes in and the torch is passed. Hockey is an exciting sport, not only in the city of Pittsburgh but the surrounding areas. Now you have Penn State not too far away; they built a new facility adding womens and mens hockey. So the growth continues, and its fun to see. Its tough to get tickets for a Penguins game; theyre an exciting team to watch and a proud team for the city to have. Mullen also cant believe the growth thats taken place since he was here, saying when I got there in 1990, there was probably only about three rinks with single pads (ice sheets). And youve just seen the growth of hockey really explode with the Stanley Cup teams that we had in those couple of years and rinks pop up all over the place. Now youre getting double pads and triple pads and its just tremendous how its really evolved for the kids in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is special to Johnson, as they gave him an opportunity to start his pro career by drafting him three years before his legendary performance for Team USA’s Miracle on Ice in the 1980 Olympics.

TheGrill: USA Today Publisher – Newspapers Must Be Conversation-Starters in the Digital Age
Its more of a conversation-starter. To that goal, Kramer said his paper haslately urged its journalists to express their voice to appeal to digital readers. We are encouraging our writers to be more expressive and have a unique voice, Kramer said, adding that readers in the digital age are more interested in the people delivering their information to them than past audiences were.

I dont have the automotive industry or the plastic industry in my top 10 list of interesting topics, Kramer said by way of example. However, if he saw a story about a car manufacturer that decided to build its cars out of all plastics, it would likely grab his attention. The discovery element is also crucial to the advertising end of journalism, Kramer said during the panel, Regimagining the Newsroom and to that point, he insisted, the advantage goes to the print media. Also read: TheGrill: FXs John Landgraf on a la Carte Cables Threat to Hollywoods Creativity, Breaking Bad Regrets One of the reasons print advertising still survives is that print is one of the best discovery mediums; its easy to turn a page, Kramer noted, saying that print ads offer advertisers a big tableau to hawk its wares with. Kramer, who said that USA Today grew its print advertising revenue last year, noted that were still at a point where the advertising dollars for us we make more per reader in print than we do on the web, estimating that USA Today takes in about five times per print reader than it does per digital reader. Were gradually building advertising revenue with digital, but were not there yet, he noted, adding that,in general,were seeing a resurgence in effective print advertising.

While last year saw readers excited about tablets, this year has been about mobile devices. While advertisers tend to be excited about tablets, Kramer said, your mobile device has really become your breaking news device advertising is even further behind there. Kramer also acknowledged that the prospect of a paywall for USA Today is likey in the cards. I think eventually we do have to have the ability to charge people its really important to the business model. Logic would dictate that [a paywall is] where we need to go.
