Surf Challenge on Mars, brought to you by Nixon

Actually it was Isla Graciosa in the Canary Islands, but looking at the landscape you could easily mistake it for some new-found island on the red planet. Wild, empty, weirdly beautiful – another radical location for some of Europe’s best surfers to thrash it out.

Here’s what the folks at Nixon have to say about their far out event:
“The 11th edition of the Nixon Surf Challenge presented by Vans and Monster Energy went down on the Island of La Graciosa. After a jaunt to the arctic waters of the Lofoten Islands in 2011, the crew of invited surfers could enjoy one week of sunshine, good times and uncrowded waves in this year’s edition of the much-anticipated event.
