INTRODUCING OUR TRANSITIONS ADVANCED PROJECTS X SNOW GOGGLE

Screen Shot 2015-07-03 at 5.23.19 pm

Dragon’s flagship Advanced Projects X and Xs snow goggles now feature Transitions® self-adjusting lenses. Transitions® lenses automatically change tints in response to changing sunlight and weather conditions, eliminating the need to swap goggles or change lenses – perfect for the fickle and constantly changing Southern Hemisphere winter. With a broad visual light transmission range, the lens automatically activates to a dark grey in bright sunlight, and lightens to a contrast-enhancing yellow in overcast weather.

Colour optimised to improve visual performance, the Dragon Transitions® lens enhances contrast and increases depth perception. The spherical injection-moulded polycarbonate lens delivers unsurpassed peripheral vision, while the integrated dual lens design is backed with a super anti-fog treatment for increased visibility. Specifically formulated for snow conditions, the Transitions® goggle lens also blocks 100% of harmful UV rays.

The Transitions® Advanced Projects X and XS snow goggles and replacement lenses are available now at all the best snow retailers across Australia and New Zealand. Click here or call 1800 032 065 (freecall Australia) or 0800 316 728 (free call New Zealand) to find out more.

OWEN WRIGHT DOMINATES FIJI PRO

Untitled  IMG_8995.JPG

Our man Owen locks in two perfect 20-point heats in a historic performance at Tavarua. His brilliant performance at the Fiji Pro could not have been scripted any better. In perfect eight- to ten-foot surf at the infamous Cloudbreak, Wright cruised to his first world tour victory since 2011. “It’s a dream come true,” sighed a bewildered Wright from the channel after the spray has settled.

Posting two perfect 10-point rides in Round 5 of the contest, Wright found himself in very distinguished company as one of only five surfers to have ever logged a perfect heat. But he wasn’t done. Fighting his way to the final, the powerful goofy-footer was clearly on a roll. Already in firm control of the final, in the dying minutes he locked into two more perfect 10-point rides. It’s the first time in the history of professional surfing that someone has tallied two perfect heat scores in one contest.

Wright now sits ranked third on the WSL ratings, right in front of fellow Dragon team member Mick Fanning. Both are within striking distance of the 2015 WSL World Title and are looking to make a strong push as the season hits the halfway point.

Part of the Dragon family since his early days, Wright has his own signature sunglass colourways in The Jam and Remix sunglasses, is a key inspiration in the development of H2O Floatable Collection, and could yesterday be seen on the podium in the Marquis sunglass – all of which are available from the best surf and sunglass retailer, or via our online store here.

FANNING WINS BELLS RIP CURL PRO

A huge congratulations to long-time Dragon athlete Mick Fanning on claiming his fourth WSL Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach title. Coming down to the wire, for the first time in WSL history the final finished in a tie and was ultimately decided in a count back with Fanning holding the highest single wave score (an 8.17).
“Bells is a special place for me and it’s the first event I ever came to as a kid. The support and the crowds here are always amazing,” said Fanning after being chaired up the beach in the rose-coloured Dragon Marquis sunglasses. “Every time I paddle out I just want to do my best, throw myself into it and not have any regrets. Today is the first time a CT Final has ever been tied, which is radical.”
Fanning’s win ties Mark Richards and Kelly Slater with the most career victories at Bells Beach in the esteemed event’s 50-plus year history. It also marks his 20th career WSL victory, tying three-time World Champion Andy Irons.
“I’d never put myself in a category with MR (Mark Richards), Kelly Slater and Andy Irons,” said Fanning. “Those guys are my heroes. MR is a god, Kelly is a king and Andy is forever, it’s awesome.”
After the first two events of the 2015 WSL season, Fanning now shares the number one ranking, putting himself in a very good position to content for his fourth World Title. Click here to enjoy more photos from the event on Dragon’s Facebook. The Marquis sunglass can be found in all the best surf and sunglass retailers or online right here.
