Gimme the Lodown

posted by / News / December 1, 2010

So Nixon calls up and says they have a limited edition Hawaii Lodown tide watch dropping to coincide with North Shore season — but, drat! Them scoundrels are slinging the watch in-state only, and when it’s gone, baby, it’s gone. Limited.

But we “came upon” three of the coveted timepieces through nefarious means and, in our kingly largess, are spreading the aloha to you. Thing is, our crystal ball is fogged and we need some help.


Praytell, which Hawaiian surfer will finish highest in the O’Neill World Cup at Sunset Beach, which kicked off just this morning?


We’re giving away the Lodown No. 1 to whoever drops the correct name first. Here’s how you can give us the lowdown to get the Lodown:

Come by the office and give us the lowdown in person nah, wait, don’t do that

Engraved band — SHOOTS!

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

Special engraved caseback — U NO DAT!


Cough up a name.

    I’ve a question:
    Is there no way to get the hawaiian lowdowner in austria?
    I’ve seen her in the internet but there’s just one problem: I don’t live in Hawaii so I can’t buy her as a christmas present for someone special…
    Hope you can help me,

    Hi Stephanie,

    The watch is sold out, but we have one more to give away. If you have a bribe to offer please make a bid, in US dollars. Otherwise please stay tuned for how to win. We ship to Austria. We global, Stephanie. Global.

  • Stephanie

    thanks for writing back! I would give between 150$ and 200$.
    Hope I can get this watch for the biggest Hawaii-Fan I know…
    Greetings from cold and snowy Austria,
