ENCINITAS, CA- A few years in the making and now officially part of the program, Nathan Fletcher is now onboard the Nixon Surf Team. A friend of Nixon for as long as anyone can remember, Nathan was voted onto the team with no hesitation from the current team roster which includes the likes of Bruce Irons, Dusty Payne, Josh Kerr, Lisa Andersen, Dean Morrison, Rob Machado, Claire Bevilacqua, Keith Malloy, and Mark Cunningham. Additionally, Nathan becomes the first new team addition to the Nixon surf program in over two years.

“From his amazing accomplishments, his ability in the water and overall talent on dry land, Nathan brings a lot to the table,” stated Nixon Marketing Manager, Mike Murciano. “He represents surfing at the most core level. I not only speak for myself, but on behalf of the entire Nixon crew, when I say we are excited about the future projects and collaborations that we have on deck with Nathan.”

Known for his prowess with huge airs, monster waves, paddle-ins and pretty much everything in-between, Nathan is best summed up as someone who takes it to another level when it comes to progressive surfing.
“Bruce (Irons) was initially the catalyst,” recounted Nathan about his introduction to Nixon. “He is part of a brand that people really seem to take pride in and I wanted to get involved with that. I like being a part of something that has bigger ideas; where your thoughts become events, projects and so on.”
Expect to see Nathan’s thumbprint on the brand globally beginning this fall. His sponsors include Analog, Vans, Astrodeck and Stretch.
