Nixon Surf Challenge
DUVIGNAC ON TOP OF THE WORLD AT NIXON SURF CHALLENGE 2013
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 22 May, 2013 : - - Hossegor, France; - The 12th edition of the Nixon Surf Challenge, in association with Monster Energy, Dragon and Reef, headed all the way north to Iceland last week for an incredible adventure just below the Arctic Circle.
After a week of exploring the volcanic island and surfing little-known breaks peppered along Iceland dramatic coastline, Reef Rider Vincent Duvignac was voted Best Overall by his fellow surfers.
The 25-year-old stood out from the crowd thanks to his tireless motivation to score waves despite the freezing temperatures, as well as his consistently impressive performances in the glacial water.
Reflecting on his victory in Iceland from the altogether warmer climate of Brazil where he’s currently competing in an ASP Prime event, Duvignac said: “I was so pumped to walk away from Iceland as the Best Overall surfer.
There’s nothing quite like the Nixon Surf Challenge, and the opportunity to explore new and deserted spots is always pretty special, particularly when the landscape you travel through is as incredible as it is in Iceland. Thanks to all the surfers and everyone behind the scenes - it’s an experience I’ll always remember, and I hope to be back next year.”
As the surfers headed for the airport at the end of a truly memorable week, Franck Corbery, Marketing Manager at Nixon Europe, summed it all up: “The Nixon Surf Challenge picked up where previous editions left off, and then stepped it up a notch.
A great group of surfers, empty surf spots, awe-inspiring natural beauty and sick surf sessions no matter what time of day it was thanks to 24-hour daylight - a winning formula if ever there was one.”
Congratulations to Vincent for this important result!
