Second Annual Nixon WTA Set to Kick Off at Teahupoo

What: Nixon WTA

Where: Teahupoo, Tahiti

When: 8 – 18 May 2008

The Second Annual Nixon WTA will kick off on May 8th in Teahupoo, Tahiti, during the third stop of the 2008 Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Tour.

The Nixon WTA is a winner-take-all event which awards limited edition Nixon watches to one person at four different stops along the ASP World Tour. Surfers on the tour will battle it out for WTA top honors and a custom Nixon timepiece valued at over $10,000.

“Year after year this event has provided some of the most memorable moments of the entire Tour,” Said Nixon Director of Marketing, Chad DiNenna. “For the Tahitian stop, we wanted to find a way to recognize the one wave that stands out above the rest for being the heaviest wave ridden. The WTA is all about giving props and taking notice.”

The first WTA watch for 2008 will be awarded in Teahupoo, Tahiti, to the surfer who takes on the heaviest wave. The subsequent three WTA challenges include: highest heat score at Jeffrey’s Bay, South Africa, in July; the longest tube in Mundaka, Euskadi, in late September; and the overall Triple Crown winner on the North Shore of Oahu in December.
