UPDATE:  Taking your backflip to dirt for the first time is a worthy winner in our books - and in the eyes of the voters too it seems. The picture doesn't say if he stuck it, but what's for sure is that Marcel walks away with a pair of Lowdown sunglasses from Smith Optics!

When you are trying to keep things on the down low, you’ll need some Lowdowns. Hide your eyes and embrace the sun in the sky. This bold youthful shape is enhanced with details that improve your performance when things heat up. You know you're doing good when your sunglasses have Carbonic TLT Lenses,Evolve Frame Material,Hydrophilic Megol Nose and Temple Pads, and a6 Base Lens Curvature.

Every week we hold a photo competition where five of seven 'Daily Shots' from the previous week go head-to-head in a winner-take-all photo face-off. If you'd like your photos to be eligible, create an account and upload your shots.
