It is nearing the end of May and the past two weeks have seen strong southerly winds change to stronger cold northerlies and a lot of cancelled tours and training sessions. So on Sunday morning while driving to a race I was surprised to get a call about a proposed trip around Achill Head on Monday morning. I hadn't taken much heed of the weather forecast for improved conditions to move over the country Sunday night as its been so wild lately.
That evening when I returned home I was eager to get out my new edition of OILEAIN and see what it had to say about our proposed trip;
"This one day expedition round Achill Head has to be one of the foremost Irish paddling trips, to be grabbed when conditions allow and with caution"
I was lucky enough to be sent a pair of these sunglasses a few months back to try out. I have to say I am very impressed with them so far. Whats the big deal you may ask they're just sunglasses
?! Well these are not just any old pair of shades. The Wave are specifically made to be used by people in and around the water for sailing, kayaking, wake boarding and even surfing.
If you found this review you probably already know the pedigree of these sunglasses, if not you might be surprised to know that Julbo have been in the industry for over 125 years and are trusted by some of the worlds best athletes and adventurers. With a wide range of products and specialist expertise in prescription sports eye wear these guys know a thing or two about making top quality sunglasses.
