looking for good sunglasses to surf with

i am a new surfer and i wear contact . i am looking for sunglasses to protect my contact and my eays. i may buy the kurtis brand and the seaspacs and try them on my next trip to costa rica in feb 2011 . they i will report on this site whitch one is the best .
from reading so far i think the kurtis will do it but i need to try it firs



I have tried them all

There are few surf goggles out there. I like the Spex from Amphibian. They float and are only 60 bucks. plus you can change the lenses after they scratch. i tired kurtis but they are not that good and cost like 180 dollars. i can buy 3 of the spex for that price



Ordered Duke surf goggles

Oh dear. I am sorry to hear that. I don't have the same issue but my eyes are killing me as wel. I am in Costa rica and my eyes got so irritated from surfing I decided to invest in those expensive surf goggles from Kurtis. I sure hope they do a good job because they are expensive! You can e-mail me if you wish to know more or check out my blog as I will write a review on them

RE: WHo has tried surf goggles & what works the best?

Hi.....I have bad eyes from surfing too.....I need goggles that are sealed.....from what I understood kurtis goggles are open and water can touch the eye. Any ideas anyone.?



RE: WHo has tried surf goggles & what works the best?

Kurtis is good but sucks in beach break. I like to surf heavy beach break and the way the straps connect in the back are totally cheezy. I mean they stay on when its small or point waves an basic stuff, but they need a strap for when its heavy rather then the 2 little pieces of chees ball china Velcro. There is better Velcro, but basically a strap that you could since down would be awesone, I have a pair from 4 years ago and I'm surprised they have not made the change.  Totally lame !
