Bomberfest Costa Rica 2015
The Bomber Eyewear family, consisting of the company's East Coast, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Venezuela divisions, and more -- including founder, Tommy "the Bomber" Bonacci and his family -- all came together August to September 2015 in Jacó, Costa Rica for a giant celebration of music, athletics and the release of the company's newest sunglass styles. The event originally started as a small get together for some of the Latin American Team Riders and Models in 2011. Each year since then they have continued to expand and promote the event.
This year everyone in attendance was blown away with the extreme, high flying moves Team Rider Mark Gomez pulled off during his exhibitions. We got to meet Mark face to face for the first time at the event and were amazed at how down to earth and laid back he was for an Extreme Sports guy.
The fun didn't stop out of the water either! Saturday night Bomberfest Reggae Concert was hosted at Green Room Cafe and two of the three acts were Bomber Sponsored Artists Toledo Again and Ras Manuel. The drinks were cold and the music was HOT! ...along with all of Costa Ricas Bomberitas! There were raffles all night where tons of local vendors gave away great prizes too.
Sunday was followed up by the Team Party Barbeque with some delicious food provided by Hotel Poseidon and Restaurant. Then the whole crew kept the party rolling while helping Toledo Again shoot his newly released video, Buen Reggae off of his recently released album Stress Free. Lots of drinking and dancing ensued!
Overall, this year Bomberfest was a great success. We were very fortunate to have Team Hawaii's Jeff Mana Walthall in attendance this year! He is the owner of Mana Photography Hawaii and was kind enough to capture a ton of the beauty and fun that was happening in his awesome photos!
BIG thanks to all of the owners, proprietors, athletes, models and supporters of the Bomber brand that helped make this event happen! Can't wait to make it bigger and better in 2016! Mark your calendars and come enjoy the ride!
We know everyone has their favorite, sometimes pricey sunglasses from some hot designer brand. We are not here to replace those favorites. Instead of risking your faves when fishing, cycling, boating, paddling, doing construction or pretty much anything that requires thrashing around in - put ours on. It's kind of like 'insurance' against both eye injury and breaking or losing your favorite pair of sunglasses in the water....MORE THAN JUST A SUNGLASS.
