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.
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. From the artic conditions of the Lofoten Islands, Norway, to the surreal landscapes of Iceland, the past events have been some intense trips to the unknown.
Known as the Land of Ice and Fire, Kamchatka is one of the wildest regions of the world. Home to brown bears, active volcanoes and just above 320.000 people, the Russian peninsula’s long and exposed coastline holds a lot of potential for amazing surf and a great adventure. With a next to non-existing infrastructure and water temperatures are rather artic than tropical, a surf trip there is a mission far from the ordinary.
