    Red face Noob question on eye protection

    Hey Gang,

    Noob here with a stupid question. What do you guys wear for eye protection. I have tried regular sunglasses but they get so spotted from the water spray I can see anything. 99% of my riding will be on fresh water, so do you think I can get away without wearing anything?

    Suggestions?

    For fun I don't wear anything but for races I use snowboard goggles with antifogging glaze on them.

    I wear Spex because they're polarized and comfortable. Look here:

    Glasses

    This is a subject near and dear to me. I wear contacts and simply cannot ride without eye protection. Wind and salt sting my eyes bad.

    Ive tried many different glasses and goggles. Although I always carry goggles for the real gnarly conditions, these glasses are my favorite. Very light, do not fog, many replacement lenses to pick from but yellow work by far the best for me since sky is often overcast or cloudy. Much better wind protection than regular sunglasses.

    I'm sorry I dont the name of these glasses but I bought them at Kawi dealer for about $40.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I don't wear glasses or contacts but find that when on/near water the glare really bothers me, so I typically where sunglasses.

    I will keep my eyes and ears open for some of these glasses. And if all else fails I will break out my motocross goggles.

    Cheers.

    Bill.

    Are you searching for racing glasses or just for recreational riding/cutting up?

    Hey SE TX Rider, I never even thought to mention the type of riding I will be doing. Thanks for bringing it up.

    Purely recreational riding. I am sure there will be a few HIGH speed runs mixed in and I will occassinally be pulling a skier.

    When you say "cutting up" I assume that means donuts, figure eights, high speed turns, etc etc. As you can see I don't know the terminology yet, bet yes there will definitely be some of that kind of riding too.

    Hey man, I'm new to the PWC world too. When people were talking about "GIO" problem, I was looking in my manual for it.

    You and me ride exactly the same. All you need is some el cheapo polarized shades. $15 max. You can get them at Academy. Trust me, when you ride fast and your adrenaline is high, you won't be thinking about those water spots on your shades...

    SE TX rider, That is funny. I never even thought to look up GIO. I thought it was a model name like GTO. Doh.



    Now has anybody tried these.

    http://www.seaspecs.com/

    I saw an ad for them on this forum.

    I like what I see and to be able to get 3 pairs (wife, daughter, and me) for the price of 2 seems reasonable.

    I would love to hear an opinion or two from anyone here.
