Nixon And The Rob Machado Seaside Pro Junior Billboard

A surfing billboard is nothing new to the San Diego area, but this one by the good folks of Nixon sure is cool. The billboard is located about ¼ mile north on PCH of the surfing spot Swamis in Encinitas, California and is advertising the Rob Machado Seaside Pro Junior April 22-23 2011.

The other billboards we have seen would be by Coors Light and Hurley. Coors Light did one of Andy Irons which had him doing a back side snap with his initials A.I. and one of Donavon Frankenreiter doing a front side carve and Hurley’s billboard was their H logo with a shot of a girl modeling.

So be sure to come down and check out all the surfing action at Seaside where you can meet Rob Machado and witness the best surfers of the next generation.
