Stand Up Paddle Boarding Sunglasses
Paddleboarding is an awesome way to immerse yourself in nature and give your body a great workout. Here at LiP, we’re huge fans of SUP, both on the ocean and in freshwater environments too.
But when you are immersed in the elements and enjoying the scenery with your SUP, are your eyes paying a price? It’s worth thinking about.
Being surrounded by water in all directions means that we are constantly bombarded by direct and scattered UV rays and reflected glare. In the early mornings and evenings, this can be especially uncomfortable and can take the edge off our enjoyment. Out on the ocean, it’s practically impossible to seek shelter unless you submerge yourself, so you’ll want to ensure you set out prepared for a long day exposed to the sun. This means taking plenty of sunscreen for your skin, and just as importantly – sup sunglasses to protect your eyes.
Sunglasses Designed for Paddleboarding
- 8-base curve frames and lenses minimise UV leakage from the top, bottom and sides of the frame. At the same time this wrap-style curve maximises peripheral vision allowing you to see clearly not only in the focus range, but also in the mid-periphery and far-periphery.
- light and unbreakable ‘shape-memory’ TR90 frames which incorporate a patented venting system to counteract lens fogging, and soft TPU rubber parts for lasting comfort
- state-of-the-art polarized lenses that cut out 99% of reflected glare, and hydrophobic and oleophobic lens coatings that keep your vision clear of dirt and water spots
- Security – either floating frames or a leash retention system that is guaranteed to keep you connected to your sunglasses.
