About the Owner of WearSurfGlasses.com
My name is Tony DiMaggio, I am a 29 year old surfer. When I was 17 my eye was irreparably injured by the nose of my own board while surfing Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica (near Jaco). Now I have a glass eye but if I had been wearing surf sunglasses I would have been totally fine. Less than a month after the accident I was back surfing, this time wearing surf sunglasses. After my accident I was told countless similar accident stories and seeing me surf with sunglasses, all my older surfing buddies in Costa Rica told me how the years had fried their eyes. "Why doesn't everyone wear surf sunglasses?" I thought.
You can't find them anywhere, was the answer to my question. At that time there was no chance of finding surf sunglasses in any surf shop in Costa Rica and there was almost no online presence either. What a great opportunity! I got my hands on as many models of surf sunglasses as I could and I built this website to sell my favorites. I have continued to search for the world's best surf sunglasses and I now carry glasses from The USA, Australia, Spain and Brazil.
Thank you for visiting my store. If I can help you in any way, contact me. Tony@WearSurfGlasses.com
WearSurfGlasses.com is not just about making money, not by a long shot. Wearing surf sunglasses saves eyes and this website is a small thing I can do to make the world a better place. I have made a commitment to give 10% of my profits to charity too. This was a blessing in 2011 when I traveled by foot through the jungle to one of the more remote villages on the planet to deliver school supplies to shoeless children. If you have any great ideas for where to donate please let me know. Surfing was my life for a long time. Now, I am dedicated farmer and I only get to surf for 6 to 8 weeks each winter. I grow herbs in beautiful Mondovi, Wisconsin. Check out my herb farm at www.SacredBlossomFarm.com.
