Nixon High Tide Hold'em brings the A-listers to Tavarua

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 February, 2009 : - - Encinitas, Ca -- Nixon is gearing up to take over the Fijian island of Tavarua for the third annual Nixon High Tide Hold’Em taking place February 12-21.  The invitation only event pits some of action sports leading athletes in a series of competitions ranging from poker to ping pong, spearfishing to karaoke and two separate surf challenges all in the name of fun.
 
“This is an anti-contest of sorts,” states Nixon Marketing Director, Chad DiNenna. “We bring our friends together for an all island challenge where there is more fun being had than actual competition. Winning an event is just a byproduct of the good time we have on Tavarua.”
 
Confirmed attendees for this years High Tide Hold’Em come from the world of skate, surf, snow, and include: Tony Hawk, Danny Way, Andy Irons, Dusty Payne, Claire Bevilacqua, Travis Rice, Todd Richards, Hana Beaman, and the return of the 2007 overall High Tide Hold’Em winner, Cheyne Magnusson.  
 
Now attending his third High Tide Hold’Em, an enthusiastic Todd Richards commented, “It’s cool to hang with the athletes from other sports. Sharing a beer, planning duets on karaoke, getting sunburned. I love it all!”  Event updates, pictures and video content will be featured on Surfer magazines website the week of the contest and FUEL TV will be filming The Daily Habit from the island.
