Kreed Team rider Brennan rips the waves and school grades

School is tough enough but when you are a young middle schooler and a competing surfer things can get sticky. Brennan Aubol has over come this and with flying colors. Listed below is the NSSA press-release showing Brennan as one of the many student athletes who excelled in school (he’s listed on the top of the 4.) group.

NSSA Announces the 2010 Surfer Scholar Award Recipients!

Also, Brennan has been invited to compete this year in the Surfing America Prime series which is the gateway to possibly earning a position on the US Surf team if successful, a goal any young surfer would aspire to accomplish.

Way to go Brennan! We are excited to so that you are achieving great things inside and out of the classroom!

Are Designer Sunglasses Worth the Price? Wall Street Journal article

  We all have wondered from time to time about designer sunglasses and what is so special about them. When I say designer brands I mean high end brands like Louis Vuitton, Prada, etc. which a pair can run nearly $500 give or take a hundred or so and that is not even with prescription lenses. Celebrities wear them, no surprise because they have the money or the brands give it to them, along with well to do socialites who can afford a pair. To an average person, like you and I, is it really worth it to buy a pair? What can we gain from it?

The only two reasons I can think of is that first of all, they are designer name brand. People buy them because they are associated with a certain brand and that association perhaps denotes a certain 'social status' or an elevated 'style.' The second reason, is the quality of the sunglasses themselves. I can maybe understand the price if the pair of shades is constructed of gold plated titanium, with turtle shell details, and the highest quality light-weight polarized lenses. All complete with a leather case with suede on the inside and lifetime warranty. Even then that is a stretch and the quality will not matter they are so happened to be stepped or sat on.

Here is an article from the Wall Street Journal about the value of the designer sunglasses. Here

Honestly speaking, there isn't a single brand that comes to mind that has the same prices and quality as Kreed and Crush sunglasses do. Nothing better than a great quality return for the price!

Kreed and Crush in Transworld Business

We've all enjoyed the Kreed and Crushes (the womans line) sunglasses and have benefited from the great quality and style along with an unrivaled affordability. Where else can you find good polarized sunglasses for under $50? It's not often one gets a look of what goes on the back end of a business. Here is a glimpse from Mark Lohrbach, Vice President of Fortress (parent company to Kreed and Crush), on what we can expect this year and the next.

Bail Out: Summer Fun

If you really love the look of the classic Ray Ban WayFarer, there is a good chance that you will like Kreed's Bail Out. It has the same retro look with more of a modern touch to it. With the classic frame, the Bail Outs have a 'narrower' look to it (the modern touch), which is good for those who have high cheek-bones (like me) and who don't like to have the bottom of the frame rest upon them.
I gave a pair to my friend Sean who told me later that he loves them and that he'll wear them everyday at his summer fun job.

Another alternative of the same style is the Pay Ups which is closer in design to the Ray Ban WayFarers.

Here are a couple of pictures of Sean rock'n the Bail Outs. Get your self a pair here.

DP Racing takes 4th in the Tecate/SCORE Baja 500!

DP Racing Team who love wearing our shades recently placed 4th in the Tecate/SCORE Baja 500 off-road race in Mexico!

"An epic and incredible day of racing as the DP Racing warriors overcame adversity and other Baja challenges to take 4th Place in Open Pro Class 22 in the Tecate/SCORE Baja 500 off-road race. Congratulations to A.J. Stewart, Bryce Stavron, and Jesse Casillas for being the first non-factory team in their class and 10th Overall motorcycle. The Jimmy Lopez-prepped MotoWorld of El Cajon Honda CRF 450 X was flawless as the guys ripped around the Baja peninsula in a time of 10 hours 40 minutes."

DP Racing relay's on KREED eyewear as their preferred sunglass of choice for their offroad race team!
Thanks to Seve’ and the crew for their awesome support and way to go A.J., Stewart, Bryce and Jesse and the entire DP Racing crew for a great finish!

Kreed x Oahu North Shore Lifeguards

"In the North Shore's seven-mile stretch of some of the world's best surfspots, there are five full-time lifeguard towers.

"It's like we're sitting at a red light, just waiting for an accident to happen," said veteran lifeguard Mark Dombroski, 56, who has worked on theNorth Shore for 35 years. "You just gotta do the best you can to control the situation, but in reality, the situation is out of control. On a good day at 'Ehukai, with clean conditions and overhead surf, there could be up to 500 people in the water. That's not counting the hordes of spectators on the beach."

Mark Dombroski, head of the North Shore lifeguards, (famous father of our favorite Hawaii Crush girl, Brooke Dombroski) and the North Shore Lifeguard Association wear KREED polarized eyewear as their polarized eyewear of choice! The North Shore lifeguards understand how important it is to have glare reducing polarized sunglasses for their life saving profession and they wear KREED polarized eyewear because they love the product and it works for them. This adds HUGE credibility to our already great polarized eyewear collection and testifies to the fact that you don't have to pay $100+ to get the same eyewear that ranks with the best in both fit, polarization and optical quality! Look for a special announcement in association with the North Shore lifeguards and KREED polarized eyewear coming soon!
