Gimme the Lodown — One Last Time!

posted by / News / January 3, 2011

Long gone. Long gone are the holidays, long gone the gifts. But we’ve got one more present to unwrap — a Nixon Limited Edition Hawaii Lodown tide watch, an instant sell-out that was available only (and briefly) in the 50th state.


Want it? Caption contest. Put on your clever cap and check this photo of Nixon team rider Dusty Payne, on the beach before his Round 3 Pipe Masters heat against Mick Fanning — you know, the one where Dusty went from combo land to win with a 9.87 literally as time expired. Dusty needed to win to requalify for the 2011 tour. Mick had to win to stay in the Triple Crown race. And we all know how that ended.


You know the game — best caption wins. Make us laugh, clap and cry.


We’re sending away Lodown No. 3 to the best caption we collect by week’s end (Friday, January 7). Here’s how you can share your razor wit:

Engraved band — SHOOTS!

Proceeds from the sale of the watch went to support the Defend Oahu Coalition — a passion project for Nixon team rider Mark Cunningham.

Special engraved caseback — U NO DAT!


Pony up, Wordsworth — this is so easy a surf mag editor could do it.

    Uh maybe I should of taken Kelly’s advice and used a quad fin. hmmm maybe I should go unconventional vs Mick Fanning’s conventional tri fin set up. That would be a good way to beat white lightning and re qualify for the 2011 WCT. Do I have enough time to go get a quad backstage from Kelly?

    It’s late in the season and the young predator finds himself in a difficult situation, a kill is needed if the predator hopes to survive the winter. Silently he sits, eyeing his prey, as he scans the horizon for the best possible approach, all the while trying to ignore the pit in the bottom of his stomach he’s starving and he has nothing to lose… the worst kind of predator there is.

    90 seconds of your life Dusty, that’s it. This is our tactic: we strike fear. Once you get them peeing down their leg, they submit. Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation, causes your worst fears to come true.
