THE FINAL STOP OF THE 2012 NIXON WTA SERIES TO LAUNCH WITH TRIPLE CROWN OF SURFING
The final stop of Nixon's 2012 WTA (Winner-Takes-All) series will commence November 12th with the Reef Hawaiian Pro. Taking place on the North Shore of Oahu, the Reef Hawaiian Pro marks the first in a series of three events that make up the Triple Crown of Surfing. The overall winner of the Triple Crown—based on an accumulation of points during the Reef Hawaiian Pro, the Vans World Cup of Surfing and the Billabong Pipe Masters—will also claim the 2012 Nixon WTA Triple Crown title.
The previous events that led up to the 4th and final stop of the 2012 Nixon WTA series included contests for Biggest Air in Rio de Janeiro, Highest Heat Score in J-Bay and Heaviest Wave in Teahupoo. The Nixon WTA looks to celebrate crowning achievements and standout moments during ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals) events that may otherwise go uncelebrated. Nixon awards WTA winners with a custom Swiss-made watch adorned with jewels and other embellishments. Each of these WTA watches is one-of-a-kind and valued at over $10,000.
The Nixon WTA Triple Crown winner will take home an all black ceramic 51-30 with over 200 white diamonds adorned on the bezel, crown and indices. The winner's watch also features an automatic Swiss-made movement, sapphire crystal and the Hawaiian flag applied at the 6 o'clock hour marker.
