From sea to shining sea, on amber waves of grain, we think everyone deserves to be surfin' USA. And as a Californian company, we feel a particularly strong connection to the ocean and our surf. So you can imagine our excitement when we heard about Operation Surf, an organization that brings the joy of surfing to our wounded, active-duty military heroes.
The heroes who come to Operation Surf are being treated for various kinds of trauma, and Operation Surf exposes these veterans to the healing power of the ocean with adaptive surfing taught by world-class instructors. The week-long, all-inclusive program provides a unique form of rehabilitative recreation, and we can think of no better manifestation of America's love for the sea.
This model features red, white and blue threads, sewn directly into the frame in a pattern inspired by the American flag.
We drilled tiny holes through the frame, and, using a needle and thread, wove this pattern into the actual stems of the glasses.
For every pair of sunglasses sold, we donate $10 to Operation Surf, whose mission is to heal and honor wounded active duty military heroes through an epic life-changing experience-- giving them the confidence to move forward in a positive direction.
