NIXON PROMOTES ANTONY LOPEZ TO EUROPEAN PRO TEAM

HOSSEGOR, FRANCE- September 19, 2011 - After more than five years on Nixon's flow program, French skater Antony Lopez recently made the jump up to the Nixon European Pro Team. The 27th-year-old, born in Bordeaux, is undoubtedly one of the most talented skaters to come out of France in recent years. Since moving to Spain and making the city of Barcelona his permanent home, Antony has more than held his own in some pretty impressive company, becoming one of the most respected and progressive street skaters to emerge from southern Europe. Despite scoring more than his fair share of podium spots of first place finishes, Antony normally prefers to shun the contest scene in favor of filming the kind of video parts you don't forget in a hurry. Whether he's keeping it local by locking down footage at home in Barcelona with his friends, or traveling the world to take part in demos and explore new spots, Antony has always got a smile on a face, especially after a good session. During any downtime and bad weather spells, you can usually find Antony taking it easy at home, spinning a few beats on his decks - another big passion of his. Taking a step back to think about signing on with the team, Antony said: «I'm really stoked to join the Nixon European Pro Team, and to be part of a team that already includes a lot of good friends. I've always enjoyed flying the Nixon flag, and I already know I'm going to feel right at home. At the end of the day, I guess this now makes it all official - it's a super good feeling.» Franck Corbery, Marketing Manager at Nixon Europe, commented: «It's a real pleasure to welcome Antony to the Nixon European Pro Team. The guy is an absolute credit to the European skating scene, and the fact he still gets the same kick out of landing a new trick as he did when he first started out is what it's all about.»
