Gillian Gibree Signs with Revo

Gillian Gibree is considered to be one of the most complete water sports athletes in the world. She won several titles at major SUP events and she is one of the athletes who promote SUP Yoga across the world. Apart from winning the title at major competitions, Gillian is a constant top five finisher at the Battle of the Paddle of Hawaii and California and was nominated the SUP Athlete of the Year by SUP Magazine in 2011.

Gilian has recently signed with Revo, the famous eyewear designer and manufacturer from California. The eyes of water sports athletes are often stress by the glare produced by water and sun, and it seems that the Revo sun glasses will keep Gillian’s eyes safe from now on. The prestigious SUP rider will wear Revo sun glasses from now on at the 2012 competitions and also in her spare time.

Gillian will also be on the REVO Ambassador team together with adventure photographer Jimmy Chin, polar explorer Sebastian Copeland, global water advocate Alexandra Cousteau and surfing icon Wayne Lynch.

Gillian Gibree about the Revo glasses: “The first time I tried REVO sunglasses was at the Catalina SUP Festival and I was amazed by the quality. As an on-water athlete you need to have the best lenses to protect your eyes. Clarity is also important so that you have the most accurate possible vision while competing. The clarity during the entire race was perfect, even with the wind and chop. Spending that much time in your glasses, in varied conditions, they need to be comfortable too – and REVO nailed it!”
