How did surfing got into your life?
I love surf products since high school and in time I got deeper with the community and the business. It's affecting my personality and also the way I see the world, it's a lot of fun and a challenge at the same time.

When did you decide to get involved by the surf industry?
I jump in into surf industry since 2007 on my first working in surf retail industries in one of the surf brand in Indonesia,  I love the idea of making the best product for the best community  so I get deeper into the surf industry..

Do you believe that surfing can improve the life quality for those who do it?
Certainly... to be a great surfer (for competition or for fun). you need dedication, discipline, passion, love for the sport itself and that will shape and bring up the quality of the surfer inside out.

About Nixon's strategy. How does Surf impact Nixon's brand image and lifestyle?
Every Nixon product is a reflection of who we are. And when what we do becomes part of who you are, we're connected. And that's why we are committed to the highest standards of quality.

The Lodown and the Supertide. If you're a surfer, you should put it on your arm while surfing. It's the best companion for a surfer in the sea.

The ocean culture is getting bigger and bigger each year. Specially in Bali, that became the main attraction for surfers, with lot's of the best beaches and waves. With more international surfing events thatare held in Bali, and also a ton of advertising and marketing that bring up the ocean culture, make indonesians more aware of the ocean culture, or I can say the lifestyle.
