SMITH Australia – the recently established subsidiary of the global leading eyewear and headwear protection brand for over 56 years – is excited to announce the addition of surfer, Lennix Smith, to its regional athlete roster.

Hailing from the South Coast in New South Wales, the 16-year-old rising pro surfer joins the renowned eyewear brand and its growing roster of exceptional athletes. On the evolving list of surf accomplishments, Lennix currently holds the title of two-time Australian Junior Champion, Oakberry Tweed Coast Pro Junior Champion, Rip Curl Gromsearch National Final Champion and Occy Grom Comp Champion.

As a steward of the ocean, Lennix opts to wear the eco-conscious Eastbank CORE and Shoutout CORE sunglasses from SMITH made from recycled water bottles and bio-based lenses.

“We’re committed to supporting the sports we identify with from grassroots to elite level, and supporting the leaders of tomorrow is a key part. Lennix has ability well beyond his years in the ocean while being a humble young man on the land. There’s a big couple of years ahead for Lennix and we’re excited to support him through it,” said Tom Edgar, Marketing Manager for SMITH Australia.
