To celebrate the launch of the new Base Tide Pro watch, Nixon just dropped a brand new short, featuring Nathan Fletcher and Chippa Wilson cutting loose in Panama.
The edit celebrates the notion of the perpetual and professional tourist, the planes, the trains, the travel hours and the waves at the end that make it all worth it.
“I see us as professional tourists,” Nathan said to Chippa over the wild drone of the Panamanian jungle. “We go places and hang out and surf, and that’s about it. So everywhere we go, we’re looked at like that, which is fine. Because let’s face it: We’re just here to surf.”
“When you look around at everyone else that isn’t from here, really, you’re just like them, only you’re getting paid to be a tourist,” laughed Nathan. “And to surf.”
Musings complete, the boys get stuck into a series of wild central American wedges, long tropical tubes, and jungle backed aquatic skate parks. Enjoy!
