THE NIXON SURF CHALLENGE 2016: HEADING TO IRELAND
After a memorable jaunt last year to the Far-East and the South China Sea, the Nixon Surf Challenge – in association with Monster Energy, Reef, Jam and Lomography – returns this year from May 30 – June 5 with the altogether less tropical but equally mythical coastline of Ireland in its sights.
Over the course of the last couple of decades, Ireland has quietly yet self-assuredly become one of the world's premiere surf destinations, attracting swell seekers from all four corners of the world looking to go toe-to-toe with waves up and down the Emerald Isle's famed west coast. Legendary spots like the Cliffs of Moher, overlooking the fearsome Aileen's, and Mullaghmore in County Sligo, have done nothing but propel Ireland to the top of the tow-in surfing hit list.
