Oh no... does this mean you are about to tell Lee he is doing it all wrong?
Polarized lenses can blur water detail under certain conditions....something I didn't care about while surface riding but it makes foiling more difficult. Lip is coming out with non polarized Typhoons soon.
I cannot tell someone that they are doing "fashion" wrong. Fashion is about ones desire to follow a trend, or to not follow that trend. Lack of fashion is about having NO desire to follow a trend, or to not follow a trend. Either way, it is a personal thing that seeks approval or disapproval of others who are concerned with fashion themselves.
This will allow kiters concerned with fashion to also have practicality in their sunglasses.
´As half the time thy don’t seem’ sounds like a pretty light statistic, and essentially means... absolutely nothing.windsuks wrote: ↑Mon Jun 10, 2019 9:19 amI have pterygium (surfers eye) in one eye after a lifetime on the water but it seems to be stable.
I use sunglasses every day (on land) but have all but given up with water glasses as I just find such a huge loss of vision with the steaming up and water droplets they all get after a while. In fact if I see someone in sunnies on the water I tend to give them a wide birth as half the time they just don't seem aware of everything/one around them.

Thanks for answering for him. I will kind of take your word for it. So that would makes wave kiter I know that rocks it with polarized sunglasses, and does not dislike them. Still, I would like to hear from him on this. But thanks again james!
First, I examine my personal experience - which is that despite loving polarized sunglasses in other sports on the water, they seemed to hinder me reading chop, ramps, and waves while kiteboarding and windsurfing. Then I applied reason and logic to the question of "why is that?". Given that polarization in the horizontal plane helps you see through the surface of the water (to see what is below, as in fishing), that indicates that surface detail is definitely lost. Since I kite and interact with the surface of the water, it is clear that losing detail on the surface would logically hinder reading chop, using ramps, and waves.
Observation, analysis, and seeking a contradictory opinion or evidence. Then examination of any reported contradictory evidence and modification to the theory to fit or disprove. Pretty successful method for me so far on many things in life as well as watersports.
