Kayaking Sunglasses

If you search for ‘best places to kayak in Australia’, Google will serve up over 25 million results! Clearly there’s no shortage of awesome spots for dipping a paddle in Australia – and so it’s no wonder kayaking is such a popular activity.

Here at Lip Sunglasses, we love watersports almost as much as we love sunglasses. We also feel very strongly about safety, which is why we recommend wearing appropriate protection for your eyes when you’re out on the water.

Kayaking can be a gentle, peaceful pursuit and it can also be a white-knuckle activity that demands the highest level of concentration and ability. Churning rapids are no place for ordinary sunglasses and when you’re faced with bursts of spray, fast currents, eskimo rolls, wipe-outs, low hanging branches, rocky outcrops and harsh reflections off the water, you need to trust your eyewear.

Keeping your sunglasses safe in the case of a capsize is another consideration, but believe us when we say we’ve got all these bases covered with our awesome range of kayaking sunglasses.



Bringing You The Best Sunglasses For Kayaking

If you love nothing more than being out on the water in your kayak, you’ll love our Typhoon and Surge range of specialised eyewear. These watershades have been expertly designed to match up to all the challenges that kayaking serves up.  Their polarised lenses cut out 99% of reflected glare and the advanced hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings on both sides of the lenses repel water and oils, giving you a clear vision at all times.

And it’s a case of ‘no worries mate’ when you’re wearing your glasses in whirling white water.  These models come with a unique leash system that we’ve tested to perfection.  Yes, you can have complete peace of mind that your leash will work 100% of the time – even if you capsize or do an impressive 3600 eskimo roll.

In more good news for kayakers – our Typhoon and Surge paddling sunglasses have an unbreakable ‘shape memory’ TR90 frame that features a patented venting system to prevent your lenses from fogging up.  They also have soft TPU rubber padding which is really comfortable against the face and which also absorbs and dampens any impact force.

Whether you’re out for a leisurely paddle around the coves of Sydney harbour or braving Tasmania’s famous white water, you can have complete confidence in your kayaking sunglasses for comfort, performance and durability.

Shield Your Eyes From UV Radiation And Glare With Kayak Sunglasses

Don’t take chances with your eyes. Australia has one of the highest levels of UV exposure in the world, so apart from taking precautions to protect your skin from damaging radiation, you also need to protect your eyes.

When you’re out kayaking on the water, your eyes are bombarded by UV radiation, both direct and scattered and even when the famous Aussie sun is hidden behind clouds, its rays can still inflict damage. That’s why you need the very best sunglasses for kayaking that money can buy.

Our Lip sunglasses are specially designed by world-leading optical experts to provide 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays.  They also feature an 8-base or ‘wrap’ fit frame which fits the contours of your face so that no UK radiation can ‘leak’ through the sides, top or bottom of the frame.

The kayaking sunglasses feel light and comfortable on the eyes, yet they provide a powerful defence against damaging UV radiation. And do you know how dangerous reflected glare off the water can be to your sensitive eyes?

Kayakers know the benefits of wearing specialised sunglasses with polarised lenses, because polarisation is the only way to eliminate the reflected glare off the water. Polarised lenses make you safer out on the water because you’re able to see more clearly, avoid hazards and make better decisions.  So, be kind to your body (and kind to your kayak) and avoid accidents and unnecessary damage by wearing clear and safe kayaking sunglasses.


Specialist eyewear for watersports enthusiasts.
Stay out there on the water and do what you
love for longer, while also protecting your eyes.
