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

Hi everyone. This is Steve and we are the ones who created the watersports eyewear market in 1989. Been selling the Spex, for all these years and have thousands of people using the Spex Amphibian Eyewear. There are more competitors now but check ours out too, and ask others or check other blogs. We have great feedback and a lot of happy customers. Surfing for sure is one of the most demanding sports you could use eyewear in, and there are some negatives and positives with all of the competitors. Our positive is Polarized, Float, under $60, Replaceable Lenses and Straps, and...we treat our customers with respect. Thanks for checking our product out. You can get them from us or from too. Peace. Steve

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

The Necker Surf Goggles with the UV changing lenses are the BEST!  I should of gone with Kurtis earlier.  I'm happy with these
