Is surfing an art or a sport? We’d say it’s both but the jury is always going to be out on that one. Some feel that you can’t build bridges between these separate surfing paths. But if you feel torn between the two, don’t despair; Nixon may have given birth to a wondrous new hybrid. Christened the “Nixon Challenge”, it’s a creature that emphasizes free-surfing and style in a relaxed atmosphere. With a focus on surfing surreal locations and using a team voting system, it provides a refreshing new approach to surfing events. Now in its 4th year, the Nixon Surf Challenge has set up camp next to 2°C surf in Kamchatka, Russia. Keep up to date with all the chilly action here.
