In 1983, a group of hardcore fishermen who spent their days exploring the globe and battling extreme elements came to realize that the sunglasses they were relying on weren't as hardcore as their adventures. Seeing the world in absolute clarity and protecting their eyes was a must. So when they couldn't find worthy sunglasses, they decide to build their own. And Dakine was born.
After all these years and all these adventures, our mission has never wavered: to create the clearest sunglasses on the planet for life's great adventures. And the patented technology like those found only in Dakine lenses and frames are proof that we're succeeding.
We build the clearest sunglasses on the planet for those who live to be on the water. Born on the water and we're still inspired by it. We want to be on it, we want to protect it, and we want to inspire others to do the same.
