Why Watersports Sunglasses?

Watersports enthusiasts understand the importance of having the right gear to maximise their enjoyment and performance on the water. While equipment like boards, paddles, and wetsuits often take precedence, one essential item that shouldn’t be overlooked is watersports sunglasses. This specialised eyewear not only provide protection from the sun’s glare but also offer numerous benefits tailored to the unique demands of activities like wing foiling, kiteboarding, surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, and more.

  1. UV Protection:

One of the primary reasons to invest in watersports sunglasses is to shield your eyes from harmful UV rays. Spending extended periods on the water exposes your eyes to intense sunlight, increasing the risk of conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration. Quality watersports sunglasses are designed with UV-resistant lenses that block 100% of both UVA and UVB rays, ensuring your eyes stay safe even on the brightest days.


  1. Glare Reduction:

The reflective surface of water amplifies sunlight, causing glare that can be not only uncomfortable but also hazardous. LiP watersports sunglasses are equipped with polarised lenses that effectively reduce glare, allowing you to see more clearly and maintain better visibility of your surroundings. Whether you’re navigating through choppy waves or scanning the horizon for the next big swell, polarized lenses enhance your visual acuity, helping you stay focused and safe on the water.


  1. Impact Resistance:

Active watersports like kieboarding, surfing, wing foiling and kayaking entail a degree of physicality, increasing the likelihood of accidental collisions with equipment or debris. Standard sunglasses may not provide adequate protection in such situations, but LiP watersports sunglasses are engineered with impact-resistant materials, such as polycarbonate lenses and durable frames, to withstand rough handling. This added resilience ensures your sunglasses remain intact, safeguarding your eyes from potential injury during intense waterborne activities.


  1. Secure Fit:

The dynamic nature of watersports demands eyewear that stays securely in place, regardless of the conditions. LiP watersports sunglasses feature specialised designs, including padding to ensure a snug and comfortable fit that won’t slip or slide during vigorous movement and unique two stage retainer systems. Whether you’re riding waves, paddling against the current, or braving windy conditions, your sunglasses will stay firmly in position, allowing you to focus on your performance without distractions.


  1. Water Resistance:

Conventional sunglasses may succumb to water damage over time, compromising their clarity and functionality. In contrast, LiP watersports sunglasses are engineered to withstand exposure to moisture, whether it’s from splashes, spray, or immersion. Hydrophobic lens coatings repel water droplets, preventing them from obstructing your vision, while corrosion-resistant components ensure long-term durability in marine environments. With LiP watersports sunglasses, you can enjoy crystal-clear vision without worrying about water-related wear and tear.

LiP watersports sunglasses are indispensable accessories for anyone who enjoys spending time on the water. From UV protection and glare reduction to impact resistance and water resistance, these specialised eyewear offer a host of benefits tailored to the unique demands of watersports activities. By investing in quality watersports sunglasses, you not only enhance your visual comfort and safety but also elevate your overall experience on the water, ensuring countless hours of fun and adventure under the sun.
