Ireland


NIXON SURF CHALLENGE

Other than a typical competition, the Nixon Surf Challenge emphasizes free-surfing and style in a relaxed atmosphere. In the end the riders decide themselves who receives the much sought-after trophy for the best trick and the overall winner based on Nixon’s distinct method of team voting.


2016 EDITION: IRELAND

Within more than a decade of existence, the Nixon Surf Challenge has developed from a casual get-together of befriended riders sharing some waves into a highly-anticipated event discovering unexplored destinations. Norway, Iceland, Russia or China: the past events have been some intense trips to the unknown. This year’s edition of The Nixon Surf Challenge brings the surfers to the Irish coastline in search of emerald perfection.

CONGRATULATIONS CHIPPA WILSON!

After coming so close to getting the nod from his fellow surfers in Iceland four years ago, free surfer Chippa Wilson (AUS) claimed a maiden Nixon Surf Challenge title.
