Gimme the Lodown AGAIN

You may recall that during the Sunset event a couple weeks back, you gave us the lowdown — and damned if we didn’t give the Lodown right back. The Nixon Limited Edition Hawaii Lodown tide watch, that is. The only-for-sale-in-Hawaii-and-sold-out-instantly watches are long gone to the general public, but you ain’t the general public, are ya? No, you know us. We know people. We have Lodowns.

If you want one, answer the following question about the Billabong Pipeline Masters. First correct answer (or closest to correct) before the heat in question begins will be rocking and rolling and monitoring the hour of day like a straight kama’aina player.

We’re sending away Lodown No. 2 to whoever gets it on the dot or closest. Here’s how you can give us the lowdown to get the Lodown:
