Everything You Need to Know About Surf Sunglasses
When surf sunglasses shine
Surf sunglasses protect your eyes most when the sun is at its worst. Sunny afternoon surf sessions on the Pacific (morning sessions on the Atlantic) merit surf sunglasses. Tropical locales like Costa Rica and Indo demand surf sunglasses. Blinding sunshine is bad for your eyes and it causes irreversible long term eye damage. Pterygium is so common among surfers that it is often called surfers eye. Eye sunburn, cataracts and macular degeneration are other short and long term problems surfers face. Wearing full coverage surf sunglasses with 100% UV protection drastically reduces these risks.
What are surf sunglasses? How are they different from casual sunglasses?
Surf Sunglasses is a generic name for sunglasses designed to be used in the water. The needs of a surfers are different from those of a competitive sailor but both may wear surf sunglasses. Here are the critical elements that differentiate casual sunglasses from surf sunglasses.
All surf sunglasses should have a hydrophobic lens coating. Clean hydrophobic coated lenses repel water impressively well. After submerging the glasses, clean hydrophobic lenses will be left with no more than a few tiny unobtrusive water droplets. Ventilation is important to keep your glasses from fogging, especially in cold water. Ventilation is less important for wind sports but more important for sports like surfing where the glasses frequently become submerged. For surfing waters below 68 degrees I always recommend the Mormaii Floaters or the Spex specifically because of the increased ventilation.
If you are using surf sunglasses for an activity where your face forcefully impact the water (surfing, kite surfing, etc..) it is important that your surf sunglasses have anti-impact protection. All of our glasses have shatterproof lenses and good to excellent anti-impact protection unless otherwise noted. Never wear sunglasses surfing if they rest entirely on your nose bridge!
If you are not careful, your surf sunglasses may be lost to the sea. The first step in loss prevention is to have a good head strap. Some surf sunglasses come with a leash system and Surf Shades even have a guarantee against loss.
