Owen Wright Makes History Winning Fiji Pro

Owen Wright’s brilliant performance at the Fiji Pro could not have been scripted any better. In perfect eight- to ten-foot surf at the infamous Cloudbreak, Wright cruised to his first world tour victory since 2011.

“It’s a dream come true,” sighed a bewildered Wright from the channel after the spray has settled.

Posting two perfect 10-point rides in Round 5 of the contest, Wright found himself in very distinguished company as one of only five surfers to have ever logged a perfect heat. But he wasn’t done. Fighting his way to the final, the powerful goofy-footer was clearly on a roll. Already in firm control of the final, in the dying minutes he locked into two more perfect 10-point rides. It’s the first time in the history of professional surfing that someone has tallied two perfect heat scores in one contest.

Wright now sits ranked third on the WSL ratings, right in front of fellow Dragon team member Mick Fanning. Both are within striking distance of the 2015 WSL World Title and are looking to make a strong push as the season hits the halfway point.

Wright has been a part of the Dragon family since his early days and has helped provide inspiration and design feedback for our award winning sunglass line. He has his own signature sunglass color ways in the Jam and Remix styles and was a key inspiration in the development of the H20 Floatable Collection, which has revolutionized sunglasses for those who live their lives in and around the water.

The New Shadow Collection for 2015

Elevating expectations for a lifestyle sunglass, Dragon introduces the new Shadow Collection for 2015. Consisting of three bold silhouettes – the DS1, DS2 and Mansfield – the Shadow Collection takes design cues from Dragon’s award winning Frameless Lens Technology with a unique shield lens that creates a sleek, sophisticated aesthetic. This is combined with hand-made, Italian crafted frames and the assurance of the premium quality Dragon is known for. The name aside, this distinctive collection is for those looking to set themselves apart from the crowd.Owen Wright DS2
