PENINSULA SOUTH: 'ZINE RELEASE & ART SHOW
This past Friday, March 25, Nixon, in partnership with Monster Children, held a one-night only photo/film exhibition and limited edition ‘zine release to showcase Peninsula South– a new short film featuring Nathan and Herbie Fletcher. The event was held at SAID space in Encinitas and featured photography from Cole Barash and a short film directed by Riley Blakeway. The ‘zine release aligned with Monster Children’s soon-to-be-released 50th issue and also supported Baja-inspired Peninsula Collection.
The night’s event was packed and we saw many familiar faces including the Fletcher family (Dibi, Herbie and Greyson), photographer Grant Brittain, Rob Machado, Leila Hurst, Nixon employees and friends of the brand.
About Peninsula South:
Peninsula South brings together larger-than-life surf legends Herbie and Nathan Fletcher for a road trip down memory lane, where the father and son team head down to Baja and revisit some old haunts from previous adventures. Director Riley Blakeway captures Herbie’s pioneering spirit and the close-knit relationship he has built with his son Nathan as they set out on an expedition they’ve not made together in over twenty years, reignites both their love for Baja and their deep appreciation for one another. By the late 60s, Herbie had already begun exploring Baja in search of un-crowded lineups and adventure. As his life moved forward, he built a family who share his love of travel, and who have joined him countless times to explore the fickle southern peninsula. On this latest mission, Nathan discusses his father’s contagious, childlike enthusiasm for surfing and life, and shares how he hopes to pass those ideals down to the next Fletcher generation.
