NORRA Mexican 1000

Steve and the crew from DP Racing, part of Kreed's off-road team, placed FIRST at the NORRA Mexican 1000. The race is a vintage 3-day stage rally race in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico where the past is the present and the drivers ride pre-1989 off-road trucks, cars, buggies, and motorcycles. The race is 1000 miles spanning from Mexicali, Mexico to La Paz, BC, Mexico.
Kreed eyeware was stoked to help out Steve and the DP Racing team with their win by supporting them with quality sunglasses. Kreed's UV 400 polarized wrap-around and vintage styles not only protected their eye's from the elements, it made them look good winning!

Kreed in upcoming Soul Surfer movie

We recently heard from actor Deon Hallum that he's been rock'n Kreed sunglasses while being filmed for the movie Soul Surfer. You can see in the photo below that he's wearing our Fortress model. He has one major scene acting as a camera man to a Fuel Tv reporter who asks Bethany a big question.
Deon has also been work with NBC on a new show called The Event where he also has been wearing our shades!

Soul Surfer is a movie based on surfer Bethany Hamilton, who if you haven't heard lost her arm is a shark attach. Despite the sheer difficulty (actually near impossible) of surfing with one arm, she was determined to keep surfing. Today she is still surfing professionally. The movie Soul Surfer is set to be released sometime in 2011.

Thanks for the love Deon!
