breakwater yacht club



We are happy and honored to announce we have partnered with The California Yacht Club!  Founded in 1922, the California Yacht Club has an impressive history of being among the premier yachting facilities in the world. In recent years, CYC was honored as a “Platinum Club of America,” an award given by the club industry to the top 10 yacht clubs in the nation.  Whether your interests are sailboat racing, power boating, cruising to our outpost on Catalina Island or other points, rowing, paddle tennis, relaxing by the pool (heated year-round), or a comprehensive youth sailing program, CYC provides the perfect venue!  They are also an affiliate of Los Angeles Athletic Club so members can enjoy amenities of both clubs. 

The CYC will be offering our BreakWater eco-friendly wooden sunglasses as prizes to the winners of their sailing tournaments.  What’s more, members can now purchase the most important boating lifestyle accessory, BreakWater Shades, right on site before sailing out to sea.  You won’t believe how beautiful the ocean blues and greens look through our Cheetah BreakWater polarized lenses.

We also love that they are doing their part to encourage members to help keep the Marina clean. The Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board is mandating an 85% reduction in the amount of copper in the Marina waters within the next nine years.  Learn more about their efforts here


Trevor Crabb, The AVP, & BreakWater

The BreakWater team enjoyed a well spent weekend in Huntington Beach at the Association of Volleyball Professionals opening season tournament!  We are really grateful for all the love and support we received there.  Pro beach volleyball player and all around cool guy, Trevor Crabb, was spotted sporting his Jetson BreakWater frames.  Our favorite ref, John Rodriquez, was also rocking his hybrid sport wooden sunglasses.  Several other contendors, refs, and volunteers were rocking their eco-friendly polarized BreakWater sunglasses too!


The AVP put on an amazing weekend!  The amenities were second to none.  Good food, drinks, games, and swag were all at your finger tips.  Alongside the picturesque Surf City waves the festivities beyond a good time.   

Cheers to the AVP and a Cinco de Mayo weekend on the beach!  Big congrats to all the winners, Emily Day & Brittany Hochevar and Phil Dalhausser & Nick Lucena!
