San Sebastian, SPAIN -- For the third year in a row, Nixon will be hosting the 2002 Surf Challenge at Playa Zurriola in Donostia - San Sebastian, Spain, September 12-15, 2002. The event will be hosted by Nixon, Etnies and Volcom. Etnies team riders Saxon Boucher, Jason Bennett and Otto Flores are among the 24 surfers asked to compete in the invitation only event.
The contest will be based on an expression session format, in which judges will focus on all elements: radical maneuvers, progression, airs and consistency. Depending on the surf during the contest, one of two formats will be used to determine the $5000 prize winner - through process of elimination, or riders will surf against each other and their points will be counted from each heat.
