"Bobby B goes green"
The Gascan is one of Oakley's biggest selling styles, and now there's even more reason to get yourself a pair. The Bob Burnquist signature series Gascan's (pronounced all in one breath) are made from excess materials produced from the manufacture of other Oakley eyewear, making them a sweet ECO set of shades. What's great about this is no 'new' materials have to be created, it's made from 100% recycled pieces. Also the ECO-conscious design utilises bamboo for the icon accents and the included storage bag covering all aspects in the world of green.
But wait there's more!...the packaging is constructed from recycled materials and printed with eco-friendly inks. Still not satisfied? Well, a portion of the proceeds from sales of the Bob Burnquist Gascan will go to the Action Sports Environmental Coalition (ASEC), an organisation co-founded by Bob in 2001.
So not only will you be building a stack of good karma points and pleasing your eco friendly surfer crew, you'll be one of the coolest kats crusing round town cause these bad boys look dope. Also anything with the Bobby Burnquist signature of approval has merit, the man's one of the best skaters to grace our planet.
Get to know Bob Burnquist:
"As a child growing up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Bob Burnquist started skating at age eleven. By fourteen, Bob had already turned pro. At the Slam City Jam in 1995, Bob showed up and entered. Practically an unknown, Bob’s skating floored the crowd and judges and earned him a first-place finish. The rest, as they say, is history.
Bob’s switch-stance ability and creative lines set him apart from the rest. However, he’s no one-trick pony. Some of bob’s other accomplishments include skating the “loop" switch (with a gap at the top of the loop!), being a pioneer and continuing innovator of mega ramp skateboarding, carrying the Olympic torch, skydiving, piloting airplanes and overseeing his own organic farm. Bob’s also got a halfpipe, and mega ramp in his backyard. Go ahead and wipe the drool from your chin.
continuing progression and innovation have earned him a much-deserved
spot at the top of the skateboard pyramid. Hell, Tony Hawk names Bob as
his favorite skater. However, it’s Bob’s passion for living a healthy, humane lifestyle and helping others do the same that he considers to be his top accomplishment." - Oakley.com
