Nixon + Santa Cruz = Skate Graphic Watches

by The Editors on October 5, 2017

Nixon and Santa Cruz Skateboards have partnered to create a limited-edition collection of watches with classic Santa Cruz board graphics right on the face.

Nixon’s classic Time Teller is reimagined through the Santa Cruz lens, culminating in designs that are true to each brand. The iconic graphics featured within the collection include: the ‘Screaming Hand,’ the Rob Roskopp Arm, Jason Jessee Lady of Guadalupe and the Santa Cruz logo.

The watches are designed with an all stainless steel build and feature custom casebacks, co-branding, and exclusive packaging. You can pick one up beginning October 9, 2017 for $125 at Nixon retail stores, select retailers and, of course, online. If forced to choose, we’d grab the Roskopp. . . just saying’.

Nixon’s Greek Surf Mission

by The Editors on June 5, 2017

To anyone who’s spent a day staring out the window of a Minoan Line ferry looking for surf in the Agean Sea this vid will seem like fiction. Yes, we spotted wave with potential off the coast of Delos, one fall during a storm, but nothing like what Nixon surfers Marlon Lipke, Yannick De Jager and Gony Zubizarreta found on this trip.

Chances to score are always very low considering the consistency of swells and the difficulty to predict conditions. Timing is key, local connexions are priceless. All they needed was a call: a friend and local shaper guaranteed them that the conditions displayed on the weather forecast would turn the coast into an idyllic playground, and it did.

Guess so. This whole edit was snagged in one day, and when the day was done, so was the surf.

Nixon Finally Gets Smart With Android

by The Editors on March 16, 2016


Today (March 16, 2016), Nixon is at Switzerland’s world famous watch and jewelry expo Baselworld to rollout The Mission, their first ever smartwatch powered by Google’s Android Wear and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 system-on-a-chip. In otherwords, a real-deal Android smartwatch designed specifically with action sports in mind.

The Mission features a suite of custom applications tailored to action sports, as well as industry-leading durability and a category-first 10-ATM (100 meter) water-resistance rating. In addition to the full capabilities of the Android WearTM platform and apps, the smartwatch introduces Nixon’s custom Mission app powered by Surfline and Snocountry. The Mission app places live conditions information at a glance of the wrist and features a custom activity-tracking application developed in partnership with Trace, the leader in action sports activity tracking.

And with built-in GPS, this watch could be a prime  replacement for the Garmin fenix 3 that is currently occupying our wrist. But we won’t be sure about that until we get one to test out for a couple weeks. For the official word from Nixon, please follow the jump.

Curren Caples Cool Enough For Nixon

by The Editors on October 28, 2015

All around transition wizard Curren Caples has been “voted” on to Nixon’s global gang of wrist jewelry wearers.

“Curren brings a refreshing style to going big and he makes the hardest tricks look easy,” said Tony Hawk. “I’m honored to be on the same team as him.” . . . Curren’s devotion to skateboarding began when he was very young with him earning a spot onto the legendary Flip Skateboards team at the age of 13 and then turning pro two years ago. An impressive transitional skater, Curren’s style is heavily influenced by his formative years growing up in the coastal community of Ventura, CA and his time spent surfing.
