Fortunately 2012 was not the end of the world, as some of you might have thought…
Here is a short resume of our most important moments we enjoyed with you! We wish you a happy new year and we are looking forward to a great year 2013!!!
Avila our Californian Headshaper visited us in our European Factory in Spain to bring us the latest tendencies of the market and shape a limited edition of High Performance Boards.
Bumping Jaws feat Nakoa
The Year began with bumping swells hitting Maui’s most famous break Peahi aka. JAWS and the show was on. Nakoa was one of the chargers greedy to catch some hawaiian bombs. Check out the video:
Together with the prestigious spanish longskate brand “Buddywood custom made” we launched a limited edition Buddywood-Nexo. It is a model especially shaped for Nexo featuring a swallow tail. You can order them at ORDER@NEXOSURFBOARDS.COM or via www.buddywoodcustommade.com
The talented surfer from Gran Canaria is actually living in Sevilla and can be seen occasionally on Spain’s south coast and at his homebreaks in Las Palmas doing massive airs and wicked new school manouvres. Here is a little clip getting crazy in tiny conditions:
Our Maui charger Nakoa Decoite was nominated for the Billabong XXL Paddling Awards. With this bomb:
It was a productive year at Nexo and we had to recharge our foam stock several times. Therefore we import containers of best quality blanks from South Africa to offer you high performance boards from the core to the finishing.

STARK joins Nexo
Prestigious french shaping legend JP STARK joins our forces and visited us 2 times this year to make a limited Edition High Performance Boards Nexo – Stark. The French shaper did not just bring his best shapes but also brought his latest invention and technical revolution “Pheno” Technology to Spain. A new board construction including ultra light EPS foam and 2 carbon tubes instead of a wooden stringer. The result is a very light and ultra flexible board, more durable and easy to repair.
