Surf Groms Update
From Lakey, “I just got back from an amazing two-month trip through New Zealand and Australia! I started out in NZ where I did the ISA world junior championships. Basically every country from around the world that has a surf team take what they think is the best four girls and eight boys to represent their country. I had a great time and felt like I surfed really well. I ended up getting fourth in that event so I was stoked… fourth in the world for me isn’t too bad!”
Lakey Peterson wears Burny Tortoise G12.
Lucas Angulo, who wears Bolsa, made it to both Finals in his divisions (Open Boys and Explorer Menehune), ending up with a 6th in Open Boys and a 2nd in Explorer Menehune. Heis now ranked 3rd in the Hawaii Region in Explorer Menehune and 4th in the region in Open Boys, and has qualified for Nationals in Open Boys, Explorer Menehune, Open Juniors and Explorer Boys. Lucas surfed in nine heats over the three-day event and made it to the Finals in his two main divisions. He also made it through a couple of heats in the older boys divisions, securing his place in those two divisions as well for Nationals.
The latest from Porter: “My last event was held at the South Side of the Huntington Pier. I was happy to be competing in the S.A.L.S.A Surfing event because it was a charity contest for Lou Gehrigs disease and I was proud to show my support. I was competing in the combined mens and pro division. The waves were good and I was ready for an eventful day. After about 4 heats of solid surfing I found myself in the finals. With the tide shifting to high I knew that it would be a difficult final. I ended up getting some fun waves and finished 2nd.”
Gauge = Flawless Fit & Finish
“Tried a pair of Gauge on today in Seaweed….I am sold. Fit and Finish are Flawless, Lens quality is THE BEST…My Maui Jim’s are going, going, gone.” – Marc M.

Porter Hogan Rocks Local Circuit
PORTER HOGAN TAKES HOME TWO AT NEWPORT SURF CHAMPIONSHIPS
“The event was held at 56th St. Newport Beach, California (straight out to the beach from Kaenon HQ). The waves were pumping. They were about 4 to 6 feet. I had a lot of stiff competition and knew it would not be an easy contest. I was competing in the High school division (18 and Under) as well as Men’s division (all ages). After about 6 or 7 different heats I found myself in the finals next to Newport’s top surfers. Somehow I managed to get a couple good waves under my belt and came out with the results of 2nd in the high school division and 2nd in the menâ€™s division. Overall I was stoked about my result and hope to come back next year with the win.” – Porter Hogan (Gauge Black G12)
NSSA EXPLORER HUNTINGTON BEACH – PORTER HOGAN TAKES 3RD
“The event was held at Golden West St. in Huntington Beach, California. The waves were going off at about 5 feet.

I surfed a solid heat and ended up getting 3rd in the finals. Overall I was stoked with my result and hope it bumps me up in the rankings.”

Lakey Peterson did it! She won the NSSA National Open Womenâ€™s Championship. Although she competed in several divisions and walked away with a second in the Explorer Girls, winning the Open Womenâ€™s had the most prestige. Lakey set the tone by scoring a 9.0 wave, where she completed a solid air. This maneuver had the fans on the beach and over the internet in a frenzy.
At age 14 Lakey is one of the youngest females to win this Division, which makes her the Womenâ€™s Jr National Champion. The competitors in this contest are the very best, many of whom are several years older than Lakey and come from all over the United States, including Hawaii. NSSA Nationals is the largest and most prestigious amateur competition in the U.S for surfers 18 and under. Lakey wears Burny Black G12.

Jamie Mitchell – Is He The Greatest Waterman Alive?
WATER â€“ by Wyms
Few of us have the privilege to lay eyes upon uncharted waters that boast thick, heavy water. Jamie Mitchell who wears Kaenon’s Gauge Abalone G12 sunglasses and a few Aussie Slab Hunters leveraged a recent storm that battered Australia’s Eastern Coast and set out in search for something new, something challenging and something exciting. Tackling these slabs and beastly waves, one could say, mission accomplished. Read the full article on Surfline and get a glimpse of the insane slabs of Oz.
Meanwhile, while most people accomplish a decent amount in a 10 day span of time, Jamie Mitchell is definitely not most of us. Coming off his slab hunting adventures, the Australian paddling star stormed to victory in the Honolua Ocean Paddle Race on the Gold Coast of Australia. Below, Jamie at the start paddling away from the field in Hard Kore Black G12.
31-year-old Mitchell, a key face of the Kaenon Polarized brand and the 8x-running Paddleboard World Champion, wiped out of last yearâ€™s event after the rudder on his paddleboard snapped just as he made his way out to the offshore start line. This year Jamie made sure history did not repeat and completed the eight kilometer open ocean race from Snapper Rocks to Currumbin unscathed, crossing the line in a in a time of 51 minutes and 48 seconds, causing many to wonder if Jamie is truly the greatest waterman alive. Jamie Mitchell wears Hard Kore Black G12 on the water and Gauge Abalone off.

Great article / interview done with one of the all-time greats, and one of the main faces of Kaenon Polarized Jamie Mitchell.
A lot’s been made of Kelly Slater and his nine world titles, and with good reason, but when it comes to utterly dominating their chosen sport, Aussie Jamie Mitchell has to rank right up there. In 1999, after being strong-armed by a friend, Jamie found his way from the quiet surf town of Coffs Harbor to the hallowed shores of Hawaii for his first 32-mile Molokai to Oahu Paddleboard Race. Competing with his friend, the two won the team division. They returned the following year, and again took top honors in the team division. In 2001 Jamie competed in his first solo attempt, and as to be expected, won that. In fact, he’s taken the top step on the podium ever since. After a 10-year stranglehold on the Molokai race, without question or argument, it’s more than safe to say that nobody has ever been so dominant on a paddleboard. But not only can Jamie paddle, he can flat out surf…and the bigger the waves the better. Read the whole piece at ESPN online.
Baseball Fever = Kaenon Believer
It must be the glasses. Joe Maddon (Lewi, Hard Kore G12), manager of the Tampa Bay Rays and Manager of the Year, wore Kaenon Freestyle Progressive Rx all the way to the World Series. His team lost to the Philadelphia Phillies (Jason Werth; Hard Kore, Gauge), but the playoffs cemented Kaenonâ€™s reputation as the choice for the best players in the game. Look no further than the fact that many of the players on this yearâ€™s playoff teamsâ€”LA Dodgers, LA Angels, and Boston Red Soxâ€”wear Kaenon Polarized sunglasses in the field and at bat. Cy Young winners Cliff Lee of the Indians and Tim Lincecum of the Giants round out an All-Star team of Kaenon believers.
Multi-million dollar boats and multi-million prizesâ€”it must be marlin fishing season. During the winter, many of the East Coastâ€™s top fishing crews set-up in Portofino, Venezuela among them the Viking 60 Factory Team, wearing Kaenon PolarizedÂ Jetty G12, Gauge G12, andÂ Lewi G12 fishing sunglasses. The big prize? A Carribean grand slam, catching a blue marlin, white marlin, and sailfish in the same day.
At Bisbees Black and Blue event down in Cabo San Lucas, Baja, the â€œSuperbowlâ€ of fishing drew 144 boats to compete for $3 million in prize money. In the mix were â€™06 winners Team Bad Companyâ€™s Jimmy Kingsmill (Beacon C12) and Andy Horner (Klemm G12) and Tenaciousâ€™ Chris Choy (Hard Kore G12).
