After being a part of the Nixon family for five years, it has been announced that Chippa Wilson has now joined the Nixon Global Surf Team and joins an exclusive group that includes the likes of Dusty Payne and John John Florence. For half a decade Chippa has been representing Nixon on the Australian pro team, and it is his creativity and style that have helped cement him as part of the global team.
In fact, to become a part of the Nixon Global Surf Team is not a rite of passage and Chippa had to face a vote amongst the rest of the team, which also includes Josh Kerr and Bruce Irons. Had the rest of the Nixon crew failed to recognise Chippa’s talent and progressive style, then he would not have made the global team.
Nixon have released a welcome video of Christopher “Chippa” Wilson and you can also see the extraordinary talent he has in an earlier article we ran of him surfing a foam surfboard and jumping over a rock on it! Do you like the idea of membership to the Nixon Global Team being reliant on the rest of the team voting you in and do you enjoy watching Chippa’s progressive surfing style?
