Dragon Unveils New Floatable Sunglasses
H20 Floatable Collection Includes Top 5 Styles with Performance Polar
Carlsbad, CA (May 8, 2013)- Dragon has seamlessly blended fashion with function to create the H20 Floatable Collection—its first ever line of floating sunglasses. Made for men and women who enjoy an active lifestyle in and around the water, the H20 Floatable Collection pairs 5 of Dragon’s most popular styles— including The Jam and the Double Dos—with a specially formulated injected frame designed to stay afloat in the ocean, pool or lake. Arriving just in time for summer, Dragon's H20 Floatable Collection sunglasses are the answer to never losing your shades in the water again.
Worn by world-renowned big wave surfer and 2013 Billabong XXL Award winner Shane Dorian, Dragon's Floatable Collection is performance tested and water ready.

“The Floatable sunglasses are super functional for me and my friends,” says Shane Dorian. “For people who spend essentially half their lives around the ocean surfing, fishing, boating, stand up paddling or anything else that’s active, knowing you won’t lose your favorite pair of shades if you drop them in the water is key.”
Constructed from a durable, lightweight injected material, all H20 Floatable shades come standard with Dragon's top-level Performance Polar ®, custom water-resistant rubber logos on the outer temple, nylon lenses, Hydrophobic and Oleophobic coatings, offer 100% UV protection and include rubber nose pads and temple tips for performance fit on select models.
The H20 Floatable Collection includes The Jam, The Shawn Watson Signature Jam, Chrome 2, Vantage, Cinch and Double Dos, and can be found floating at a beach near you or in select retail locations worldwide.

The Nixon Surf Challenge, presented by Monster Energy, Dragon and Reef, is prepping to return to the cold in less than 10 days when it heads to Iceland from May 13-19, 2013 for the12th edition of this unique mobile surf event.
A bunch of Nixon team riders already confirmed their attendance, psyched at the prospect of experiencing Iceland's unique and mystical natural environment. Known as one of the most volcanically active locations in the world, Iceland's hypnotically beautiful coastline is also home to incredible waves.
France's Marc Lacomare, already itching to pull into Iceland's freezing barrels, is looking to defend the overall title he claimed in such emphatic style at last year's event, held in the altogether warmer waters of La Graciosa in the Canary Islands.
Lacomare will be in good company when he steps off the plane in Reykjavik, with a number of compatriots also on board. Big wave surfers Benjamin Sanchis and Eric Rebiere are crossing their fingers the event coincides with a monster swell, while Miky Picon is looking to repeat his triumphant cold-water performance at the Nixon Surf Challenge 2011 in the Lofoten Islands of Norway.
Another rider packing his bags for Iceland is the Canaries' own Jonathan Gonzales, who picked up the Best Trick award in his own backyard last year. Fellow Iberian surfers and Nixon team riders Gony Zubizarreta and Jose Maria Cabrera are also signed up, and all three will need to adapt quickly to the freezing water temperatures.
One man more used to the cold is Fergal Smith - no stranger to the north Atlantic swells that smash into the west coast of Ireland every winter. Other surfers joining the party next week include Marlon Lipke and Australia's Chippa Wilson, as well as Reef teamriders Vincent Duvignac and Kepa Acero Martinez.
"I've been fortunate enough to surf in some of the world's most remote and cold locations," says Kepa. "From Antarctica to Alaska, the spirit of exploration you feel in these places is something incredible. When I heard the Nixon Surf Challenge was heading to Iceland, I knew I wanted to be part of the experience - bring it on!"
Franck Corbery, Marketing Manager at Nixon Europe, said: "This year's event is shaping up nicely. After lengthy discussions with the team, it was decided we would head north to the little-known surf breaks of Iceland. The Nixon Surf Challenge is exactly that - a challenge. And there's no greater challenge than scoring epic waves in the kind of hostile environment that Iceland is so well known for."
Stay tuned for more details as the start of the Nixon Surf Challenge 2013 approaches.

Every year, Shane Dorian, Reef McIntosh and Keala Kennelly catch a lot of big waves, the ones that us mere mortals wouldn't even consider touching. Lucky for them, they are recognized for the size of their...waves, and honored at the Billabong XXL Awards. We suspected Shane would clean up for his performance at Jaws, and he did, taking home a check for Tube of the Year and Ride of the Year. Also on the podium was Keala, who grabbed a well deserved Women's Performer of the Year award for her backside barrel at Jaws.
Saturday night marked the finial round of the 2013 AMA Supercross Championship in front of a sold crowd at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, NV. Davi Millsaps wrapped up the season with a 3rd place podium finish and locking down 2nd place in the overall beating out Ryan Dungey by a single point. Millsaps dream season included, two 1st, five 2nd’s and five 3rdplace finishes for a total of 11 main event podiums and 8 heat race wins.
