Ben Nixon - 2012 Australian Stand Up Paddle Champion

Crowned at North Haven beach as the Australian Stand Up Paddleboard Champion for 2012, Beau Nixon took the title against the most talented competitors the country has to offer. In what can only be described as a nail biting final the open men put on a jostling Stand Up Paddleboard stouche for spectators and judges.

The lead up to the final saw a great exchange of aerials in the semis, narrowing it down to the final four wasn’t easy but contending the open mens was defending champion Jackson Close (Coolangatta, QLD), Geoff Breen, (Sunshine Beach, QLD), Beau Nixon (Tweed Heads, NSW) and keahi De Aboitiz (Sunshine Beach, QLD).
