    Waterproof Watches

    I'm looking for something around $50 that I can wear while surfing. I have a waterproof Nixon, but its stainless and not good for surfing. Should I just go old school and pick up the Shark Freestyle? It would be great if it kept the tides too, but I know that will run more money. The real key is that its waterproof and not just resistant.

    sick rip curl on whiskey right now for $50. Stainless though. I just have an old school shark watch i leave in my car and throw on if I have to get out at a certain time. It's got a metal face and rubber straps, so less chance of it dinging my board up...

    It's the best feeling when it's firing and i don't have to put it on because it doesn't matter when I get out...

    It's the worst when it's firing and I know I'm only able to get a 45 minute sesh in...

    this is the one I have minus the tide function. It's super light and durable. The thing has been ticking for like 10 years without changing the battery.

  6. i have a nixon low down and a nixon outsider tide i like them both but the low down was only like 90 bucks. awsome beat around surf watch. heres a link

    Have had the same freestyle shark watch for 7 years now. SICK. It is the tide watch version. All black rubber/plastic. Sickest watch ever. Have taken that thing to hell and back. It was less than $100 AND AWESOME.
