Named after Minnesota's Lake Waconia, a 3,080 acre freshwater lake just West of the Twin Cities metro. Waconia ranks as one of the state's "coolest" lakes as the unofficial capitol of the Minnesota windsurfing community.
These are Paddle North's original sun glasses; the most asked for sunnies in our entire collection. With 3D frame rivets and a classic wayfarer style, these sunnies work for just about anyone.

Bomber Woody Sunnies
I've purchased so many pairs of these Sunnies (because I sat on a pair, lost a pair in a lake and some ner-do-well thieved a pair). I'll probably wear this style until I die or god forbid, PN stops making them.
I love these shades and will be the only style I buy until I die.
Having said that, I got these as backups to my current pair which are like 4 years old. Took them out on the water and I didn't have a strap on them. They fell off and sunk like a stone. I know, sad face.
Nice quality glasses
The quality of these sun glasses is very nice for the price. And I like the wood grain look on the bows.
The Paddle North team threw in a free pair of these when I bought an inflatable board last year. They are really well made and a great minimalist design. I liked them so much I bought pairs of them for my family for the holidays. Very well made.
Living up to their name!!!
I gotta say, I've been rocking multiple pairs of these Waconia Sunnies on Lake Waconia for the past two years now. The reviews are right, Waconia is the Windsurf/Kitesurf capital of the western metro. These glasses are stylish and hang tight on busy days at the beach. Grab a pair or two like I do. They won't disappoint ya!
