Stoked & Salty

For a period of 2 weeks a complete art space featuring the works of Thomas Campbell, Alex Laurel, Bastien Bonnarme and Keith Malloy as well as a unique selection of Pukas collector’s boards and private treasury will be set up in the heart of San Sebastian.

“STOKED & SALTY” follows Nixon’s longtime tradition to support local artists and emerging creative talents and will be the premier of an Art Mosh initiative exclusively devoted to the universe of surfing. There could be no better partner than the family owned company Pukas, one of Europe’s most renowned and genuine surfboard manufacturers.

“We see this event as a way to give something back to the local community and are excited to pull this off with Pukas”, so Franck Corbery, Marketing Manager at Nixon Europe. “Surfing and art are passions we all share. Thanks to Pukas we get the opportunity to showcase what both of our brands are all about, our roots and heritage, and the incredibly talented friends, artists and riders we managed to gather in the past years in a prime location and season.

“STOKED & SALTY – a Nixon art mosh initiative” will be inaugurated on August 16th from 6 until 10 pm. Most of the images were taken during the Nixon Surf Challenge 2013 in Iceland!
