Rad Collector - Nixon Rubber Player June Colorway
Nixon hit it out of the park this spring with their genius limited edition Rubber Players. Running a misty campaign that consisted of launching a new color each month from March through June and not announcing the color until just before the release gave the Rubber Player a hype status that led it to sell out almost instantly after each drop. Now Nixon has announced that after blue, red, and green, the final Rubber Player will come in a singing canary yellow. Ready, set, go to your Nixon retailer on June 15th.

Rad Collector - project BLUE Photo Contest
We’ve been telling you about the different aspects of project BLUE, the surf industry initiative to donate money from the sales of special product to the Surfrider Foundation. In addition to their other efforts, project BLUE has launched a contest asking people to take a picture of themselves in front of a shop that carries brands that are a part of project BLUE (Billabong, DAKINE, Electric, Famous Wax, Nixon, O’Neill and Reef) and then a second picture inside the store next to project BLUE merch. If your pic is chosen you win some project BLUE gear and get to ride a high horse about how you’re so much more pro-enviro than your friends. Easy enough eh? Send entries to [email protected] For more contest info go here. Contest runs until June 9 so gets to snappin.

Rad Collector - Project Blue Billabong and O'Neill
On a more tranquil side of the spectrum a consortium of seven leading surf brands have combined to form project BLUE, a special line of co-branded goods, the sale of which goes to the non-profit Surfrider Foundation. The participating brands are Billabong, DAKINE, Electric, Famous Wax, Nixon, O’Neill and Reef.

We have a couple of pieces from Billabong and O’Neill to show you here.
