After nearly 10 down days in a row, the Billabong Rio Pro has wrapped. With tons of Brazilians flying everywhere, Mick Fanning and Ace Buchan still managed to crush their way through a few heats and pull in some solid results. Mick, who now sits in third overall, made his way to the Semi-Finals before taking a loss to eventual winner, Jordy Smith.
Mick wasn't the only one who made it through a few rounds, and Brazil saw Ace pull in an equal 5th and his best result of the year. Whether he should have lost to Medina is another story, but that's an entire debate in itself.
Relive the magic of Brazil right here and stay tuned for updates on the next stop, Fiji.

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.

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.

Crafted for bold individuals with stylish taste, the Mansfield’s unique and virtually frameless design goes from beach to street with flawless transitions. Largely inspired by major Hollywood sex symbol Jayne Mansfield, this sunglass is an instant favorite for Dragon surf athletes including Mick Fanning, Evan Geiselman and Beau Foster.
“These shades are perfect for cruising around town,” says Evan Geiselman. “They look good, are super stylish and are different from any other sunglass I’ve ever seen.”
Handcrafted in Italy, the Mansfield features a unique 4 base polycarbonate shield lens, stamped metal plaque inlay on the temple and external metal rivets that echo retro automotive detailing.
Available in select retail locations March 1, the Mansfield stands out on shelves worldwide in cool hues including matte black, matte tort, palm springs, pool grey and black and white.
