He has 25 years of surfing experience and is dedicated, personally and professionally, to the world of surfing and surf competitions. His love of the sport has been passed down to his children, who also participate in surfing competitions. The Vice President and CEO in the United States became involved while supporting their children’s participation in ice hockey and skate boarding.

Hang Toes Surfing is an exciting business that will leverage their individual sports passions for the greater good of the company as well as for all sports-active people and their lifestyles.

Market Analysis Summary

The increase in the number of independent specialty stores in the United States and internationally provides an opportunity to introduce a new, fresh clothing line. Within the larger surfing and active-wear market is our target market, customers of  specialty stores. These discerning customers want comfortable quality clothing for both surfing as well as everyday street wear.

Specialty retail stores are the growing “gourmet” market and are represented by large American companies like Quicksilver/Roxy, Billabong, etc. Specialty stores are willing to pay a bit more for quality products, and attempt to distinguish themselves by being a family store that attracts young teens and their parents.

Board-Trac’s 2003 survey clearly shows the crossover between sports, finding 47% of skate boarders and 50% of surfers surveyed also snow board. Additionally, it found that participation in snow boarding has jumped from 7.96 million in 2001 to 9.9 million just three years later. (*sources www.asrbiz.com, Transworld Magazine)

Retail shops are trying to hold customers year-round, and many specialty shops who focus on one action sport are also looking to bring in products that will keep customer loyalty from season to season.

There is now a growing trend towards fitness skate boarding, serious street skating, wake boarding, snow boarding, cycling and surfing. With these large potential markets, our targeted clothing and apparel lines will be there to address their lifestyle needs.

Market Segmentation

The Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association survey indicates that surfing, skate boarding, and in-line skating now have more participation than football, softball, skiing, and snow boarding combined. Surf Expo, where for the past 29 years has introduced new and top manufacturers to retailers in the surf, skate, water sports, swim and resort industries, now comes together in a business-first buying and selling environment. Produced twice annually, Surf Expo draws buyers from across the U.S., the Caribbean and around the world. Whether an industry manufacturer or specialty retailer, Surf Expo has the target markets to reach.

With a world skating market of over 31 million and steadily growing (statistics released by the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association), our aim is to penetrate into this market by promoting our clothing line in Florida’s geographical location and be viewed as an asset to the state. The mild winters and beautiful beaches attract millions of tourists and newcomers to South Florida each year. Our primary target market will be: family-oriented consumers, teenagers that want to buy clothes to match current trends, and the local specialty stores who cater to these customers.

Target Market Segment Strategy

Our target markets are teens, young adults skaters, surfers, snow boarders and the health and fitness enthusiast. This segment can be reached over the Internet and through TransWorld Business – Skate* Surf *Snow Magazine.

We plan on developing the specialty stores market through an inexpensive postcard method. Direct mailing ads/coupons with priority codes is one the most cost-effective ways to reach potential retail store customers. Also, by offering gift certificates to specialty store owners, they will contact us for more details.

Industry Analysis

Our skating and surfing sales have undergone tremendous growth and distribution throughout South America, and we want to do the same with Hang Toes Surfing in the United States. We will concentrate on Internet marketing and direct sales to specialty stores. The Internet is one of the best communication mediums for surfers, skaters, and snow borders all over the world, and we believe this is the best way to introduce our products. Sales on the Internet are now over $28 billion (as quoted by Forester Research) on e-commerce.

Our web site will attract consumers and future distributors. We want our presence over the Internet to be strong.

Competition and Buying Patterns

The purchase decision for our customers is based on trust in our services, professionalism and quality products. We have established relationships with our overseas customers which extend beyond that of the buyers/sellers. Our products have the highest quality standards in mind.

Each segment of specialty stores has its own buying patterns depending on its own needs. The pertaining table in 4.1, Market Segmentation, illustrates this.

Strategy and Implementation Summary

Hang Toes Surfing will expand production capabilities in order to fulfill the requests of overseas customers who are placing larger orders than we are currently able to fulfill. We intend to first maximize the quantity of products offered by introducing new products and apparel to existing channels. Second, we intend to establish additional accounts through targeted marketing efforts on the West and East coasts of the United States to increase sales.

Competitive Edge

Our competitive edge comes from the advantage of having established relationships with Japanese, Italian and Brazilian franchise and distributors ,brokers and wholesalers. Hang Toes has received affirmation of the demand for their product in the form of requests from importers for larger product shipments. We feel we have a superior product offering because of the larger variety of our clothing line, and because we purchase our material direct from the original suppliers (DUPONT & LYCRA) who provide other well-known products. In addition, prompt preparation and shipment provides importers with a product that is manufactured on time.

Our company’s competitive edge exists because we address the needs of our specialty retailers, and their customers’ appetites for active wear. Accessories such as fins, surf boards, and bags encourage our customers to give us a second look.

There are several other projects we are currently working on to further broaden our product lines and open up our markets even more. We will be more than glad to discuss in length some of our future confidential plans, upon request.

Marketing Strategy

Our marketing strategy will include the use of targeted online and print media advertising and direct selling to direct customers and retailers in the United States. We will capitalize on the existing international relationships of our South American manufacturer. We will position ourselves as a differentiated provider of quality active-wear products. The primary goal of all marketing efforts will be to communicate this to existing and potential customers.

The key to our marketing strategy is focusing on dry-fit clothing lines for active consumers such as cyclists, surfers, skaters and fitness enthusiasts. We believe we can cover about 80% of these sports markets since we produce products geared towards such, and another 20% for fitness and family.

Sales Strategy

Our sales strategy focuses on meeting the increased demand of specialty stores in the United States, and international companies with whom we have established relationships for larger orders. These are critical to our ability to acquire additional accounts on both the East and West coasts of the United States. We will focus on increasing the volume in the United States while working on our international marketing.

For now, our products are seen through our website, where our e-commerce lets us sell our products direct at full retail price. We will also gear sales towards the specialty shops with our Hang Toes Surfing clothing line. Through these speciality retail shops, we will further increase our sales.

Visibility will be very important, and we will gain valuable exposure by sponsoring sporting events for surfing, skate boarding and cycling in the South Florida region. We will target our advertising through the major skate, surf and sports magazines and Internet online magazines.

Sales Forecast

The following chart and table show our estimated sales forecast. We project sales to grow by ten to fifteen percent in 2006, and reaching maximum production capacity in 2007. The company will begin by utilizing its extensive contacts with several major distribution companies to leverage contracts through direct sales methods. A number of these companies have expressed an interest in purchasing the Hang Toes Surfing clothing lines. The company’s extensive advertising campaign will be used to create product awareness through the use of trade journals, shows, direct-mail advertising, and the Internet. At some future date, the company will seek sales representation to help increase sales, once the company has established a firm reputation. Post sales servicing and an International division will provide additional sales opportunities for marketing new product lines such as: bands and watches, and we are hoping to associate ourselves with a solid manufacturer of jewelry (NAME REMOVED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY).

We feel that our sales forecasting is realistic. We will steadily increase sales as our advertising budget allows.

Web Plan Summary

Hang Toes Surfing sees its website as a dynamic marketing tool for sales and direct e-mail marketing. The goal will be to implement a functional and professionally-designed website that will provide information about new product lines, sponsorship, a web cam for target customers and potential business partners, and new product updates. As the company grows, its recruiting needs can be addressed by posting career opportunities and FAQs about the company. The website will also communicate company news to create and maintain positive public relations with the surfing community.

Website Marketing Strategy

We will maintain a two-way link between our website and our product suppliers. In addition to using the page as a sales tool, we will develop a monthly newsletter and coordinate with related sites to link to our site, giving us an opportunity to reach more directly to our customers.

We will also maintain two-way links between supporters of sports events and events organizations through our website. This will include a schedule of relevant sporting events that we think will appeal to our target customers.

Development Requirements

The initial creative design of the Hang Toes Surfing website will be handled by (NAME REMOVED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY), with experience in web design, and (NAME REMOVED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY), with experience in graphic design. They will work together to conceptualize the design and use of the company logo. Future redesign and ongoing support of the website will eventually be handled through an outside contractor.
