We got the VIP line hop and got to go second round on the Goggle Bar--first round went to Oakley riders JP Walker and Danny Kass, creator of the nights favorite drink, the aptly named the Dantini. The goggle bar is more of a buffet really, but unless you’re Danbo or JP you only get one trip through so you really gotta make it happen. First you choose your frame, you got A Frames and Crowbars, each offered up in a rainbow of colorways. For the Crowbar’s you even get to go as far as customizing out the little flair pieces oneither side one at a time. Then you choose from a slew of different straps, and then different lens options--the possibilities are endless. Well they’re not really endless but they’re are a S-load of them.
After we’d properly quenched our thirsts at the Goggle Bar it was off to the “Other Bar”--what the other bar lacked in goggles it more than made up for in adult-style beverages. After a sweet demonstration in Oakley’s full-size theater about optics and impact resistance (you can fully shoot these goggles right in the lens with a BB gun or stab them with a metal spike and they totally won’t break) the night slowly faded away. Big thanks to Chris, Matty, Liam and everyone else at Oakley for having us up and putting on a sweet event.
