Testimonials for Kurtis USA Surf Goggles and Bamboo Sunglasses

“These are Awesome! I went surfing at Oceanside and the glare was so bad a local tried to buy them off of me in the water. They saved my contacts too.”
-Joshua Hunter (Transworld Surf Magazine)

“For a long time we (eye doctors) have been trying to get surfers to wear sun protection but nobody has designed a pair of sunglasses that they can live with. It is a great relief finally to see that Kurtis surf goggles offers the protection we want and the flexibility they want.”
-Dr. John Hovanesian (Eye Surgeon with Harvard Eye Associates, renowned Researcher and Speaker on pterygiums and other eye diseases)

“Kurtis Surf Goggles are very special.” – Sir Richard Branson (Kitesurfer, Elders Founder, Virgin Founder, World Record Holder, Billionaire)

“Used them last couple days at Sunset and they worked great! Also loaned them to my buddy “Surf Mike” and he raves about them, as he’s tried Oakley’s and every other pair on the market and says yours “are the best yet”. So, so far a hit. Don’t know if you know of or remember “Booby Jones”, but he was a former Duke winner and big wave rider in the 80’s and he wants to try a pair, as he’s been using various other brands. So, so far well received on the North Shore! Thanks for turning me on to a pair and I think you’ve got a good practical product with this item! Aloha -Randy Rarick (Surfer, Legend, Promoter)

-Bob McKnight (Founder & CEO of Quiksilver) – “Kurtis Surf Goggles are changing the face of surfing… They’re happening… I have sensitive eyes and will continue to wear them.”

-William Ferguson (Surfer, New Zealand) – ” I surf at Maori Bay/Muriwai on Auckland’s West Coast and an evening surf on a fine day has you squinting into intense glare. I had recently discovered I had developed a choroidal naevus on my retina, which has potential to turn into a malignant melanoma, and so it was suddenly pretty important not to acquire further DNA damage from UV radiation on my retina. My son kindly did a diligent search on the net and found your company and ordered me a set of glasses. I have to say I was quite dubious about how useful they would be. I was surprised with how functional they were , how pleasant it was to feel relief from the glare, and indeed they do look quite cool! I have not been out without them since. On those glarey evenings others in the line up are looking at me a bit enviously and I am quite often asked the brand, and where I had acquired them. I had never previously seen eyewear in the surf around New Zealand and only once in Australia. I am sure that is about to change .

Congratulations on achieving such a high standard with your product, it has clearly been well worth all the effort.”

-Chris Reid (Surfer, Oahu, Hawaii) – “I Surfed North Shore – Gas Chambers – today with the glasses for 3.5 hours. I usually don’t submit product reviews but I wanted to provide a testimonial because I was really surprised by how well these worked in the sizable surf today. …it was a rising 6-8 ft swell with gusty winds. After the first couple of duck dives getting out there I realized the glasses were simply awesome. They didn’t even move. There’s a lot of advantages to wearing these besides avoiding fried eyes. I felt like I had an advantage positioning for incoming sets because I could see further out in the ocean. I also felt that when taking off I was able to see through the blast of wind spray that slams your face before the drop. The leash neck system worked better then I expected… and kept the glasses from getting lost like it’s supposed to. I didn’t have any issues with fogging… and on the way home I noticed my eyes were a lot less irritated… weren’t red and fried like they normally are. All in all these glasses are awesome and offer other advantages besides fried eyes and I recommend them highly.”

-Keoki Ching (Keoki Surfboards, Owner, Master Shaper) – “The “Duke” Surf Goggles are great. The optical clarity and full peripheral vision allow me to wear them while getting barreled.”

-Fernando Aguerre (Founder of Reef and President of the International Surfing Association) – “Hi Kurtis, The goggles are great… a true blessing for my eyes. I will continue to wear them. All the best,”

-Felipe Pomar (World Surfing Champion, Kauai, HI) – “Got the yesterday and used goggles today. Presentation and instructions, cloth, etc was classy and went beyond my expectations. But the best thing was performance. NO MORE FRIED EYES! With my other goggles and glasses I was unhappy with the fact that I had to remove them when I got ready to catch a wave, or needed to see clearly. As a result I was only protecting my eyes part of the time. The visibility with your goggles was such that I never had to remove them and on a pretty powerful wipe out they just moved to my forehead which was a pleasant surprise. I will call Laird… Mahalo.”

-Holly Beck (Pro Surfer) – “Check out this photo of me getting tubed wearing my kurtis shades! I surfed 6 hours the day before and fried my eyes, thank God for the shades!”

-Steve Updegraff MD (Surfer, Waterman, Inventor & Opthalmologist, St. Petersburg, FL) – “It was very sloppy out there with severe chop and head high waves and onshore wind at 20 knots -…….. four hours later getting thrashed and trashed on my longboard,… your surf goggles performed flawlessly!! No fog and they only came off once on a spill with a rogue…… you have an excellent product and it does something none of the others can – stay on and give you clear protected vision….There is no doubt your company will be a huge success….. more importantly, like you, I believe that protecting surfers eyes is so needed…. you know I do cataract surgery and pterygium removal all the time, and I am the first to promote prevention -…. I am a waterman and these things were designed by someone who knows the unique conditions being in the water creates…I know your packaging does not want “non-surfers” to wear them…. I say the more, the fewer “fried eyes”! I am going to carry and promote them in my practice and I hope to help you any way I can to reach more surfers and others that love to play in the water!”

-Con & Ingo (Wild By Nature Adventures – Costa Rica Surfaris) – “Stellar surf goggles amigo!!! Our surf school is totally stoked on your amazing invention. Our eyes are thank you! I fried my eyes last season. My pals had to tell me when to paddle cause I literally couldn’t see. So many surfers on the lineup comment how cool the goggles look… every aspect of the goggles are perfect for surfing. NO MORE FRIED EYES!!!!”

-Alexander Kashintsev (Kitesurfer, Wakeboarder, Snowboarder, Moscow, Russia) – “No Fried Eyes at all! Great sunglasses, bro!.”

-Kaiea Bosgra (Lost Team Rider, Hawaii Local) – “I wear the Kurtis Surf Goggles in any size surf. They are so light weight and comfortable that I feel like I have naturally polarized eyes”

-Jill Anagnos (Surfer, Kiteboarder, athlete, Florida) – “Love my surf goggles – they’ve had quite the adventure since down here in Cabarete. I am telling everyone I meet how much I love them!

Surfing, running, kiting – all better with these Kurtis Surf Goggles. “

-Carol O’Brien (Surfer, Costa Rica) – “I admit I was dubious about them staying on but they did, even on one of my more spectacular falls. I kept forgetting they were on my face. I kept reaching up to check on them and they were always in place. I love them!”

-Dr. Gregory Char (Lifelong Surfer, Optometrist, has a pterygium on his left eye from UV damage when surfing) – “They are stable when riding or paddling, are comfortable, lightweight, provide no restrictions on vision and are the best on the market that I have tried.”

-David Burroughs (Surfer, Reporter -Ventura County Star) – “The goggles really proved themselves on Christmas. The news reported gusts up to 107mph on this day, so talk about plumes of whitewater. I surfed Silver Strand first thing in the morning with just 2 of my friends out and they were so jealous the whole time that I wasn’t getting spray in the face.”

-Jan Mur (Kiteboarder, Netherlands) – “My goggles arrived in the Netherlands yesterday without any delay. Thank you for the excellent service and solution! “

-Mako (Oceanside, CA) – “My Surf Goggles now stay on my head while I’m in the water or on the beach. I didn’t realize how really cool these things were until I took them off after wearing them all day in the surf and then put on my regular shades. I immediately realized that I totally lost my peripheral vision due to the side bars on my sunglasses. F*!k that. I now wear my Surf Goggles everywhere.”

-Marissa Shaw (SDSU Surf Team, San Clemente, CA) – “Hey, I tried the surf goggles out a few days ago after school and they worked super well. I didn’t squint nearly as much or need to shade my eyes from the sun with my hand. It really was a big difference. :)”

-Darryl Dickie (Hermosa Beach Hall of Fame Surfer – Indonesia Test Pilot) – “Kurtis Surf Goggles Advantage: Being able to see well in very harsh sun conditions. Protecting your eyes from the damaging effects of the sun. (Which I do think is important). They never fogged at all…”

-Patrick Ariihere Brault (Maui, HI) – “I just had two retinal tears and detachments in my right eye.I am back surfing now after a 3 months lay off but I can’t take the glare of the sun anymore.Your goggles are a Godsend,I tried all the others,they suck for surfing.You made it fun for me to surf again, mahalo a nui loa. P.S. my friends say I look baaad with my shades,doesn’t hurt!”

-Mark Paisley (Surfer, Australia) – “. Just letting you know I received my Makaha’s a couple of days ago and tried them out today. The thing I really noticed is how light they are on your face. I used to wear Sea Sp**s which are hard plastic, no comparison to the Kurtis, I love them…I think there is a huge market over here, even today the first day I wore them a guy asked where I got them from. Thanks again… will have to send some pics. “

-Kevin K (San Diego, CA) – “Awesome. I can’t wait to get protected again. I feel like I’m surfing naked without Kurtis. P.S.–I would never really buy B@$z or other cheap rip-off since I’ve heard they’re not in your league, and they don’t work anyway. Yours gratefully,”

-Cissy (Surfer, Maui, HI) – “Aloha! — the reason I want your shades in the first place… the reason I ran after that guy coming out of the water a few weeks ago at Ho’okipa who was still wearing your shades after his session (most other shades don’t seem to stay on so good) to ask where he got ’em– is because I had cataract eye surgery last year at a ridiculously young age because, apparently, I spend WAY too much time outdoors in the sun and surf! (How’s THAT for a run-on sentence?) So I really need to protect my eyes and I prefer to look good doing it! I will do my best to do your shades justice. Aloha nui”

-Leleo Kinimaka (Waterman, Legend, HI) – “…love them. Spend a lot of time on the water and have some serious pterygiums. Dr. says keep them protected and they will shrink. Well I’ve been using kurtis shades on my sup and 1man canoe. Even when the surf is small I’ll surf with em and my ptrediums have gotten smaller. Mahalo”

-Skeeter Tichnor (Surfer, World Traveler, HI) – “G’day! …i love the shades…. Never surf without them!”

-Mike Lopyrev (Kiteboarder, CA) – “I love your goggles and have been using them for kiting – They help a ton!”

-William S (surfer,Manhattan Beach, CA) – “The Duke’s are sick! Stayed on in El Salvador and I continue to wear them after work at El Porto (brutal glare). Thanks!”

-Scott Wheat (Fisherman, Guide, TX) – “Kurtis, I think your bamboo glasses are the most comfortable glasses I’ve ever owned… I’m a fishing guide and I’m always on the water. I tell all my clients about your product.”

-Reid Inouye (Heavywater Magazine) – “Been using these goggles for the last four days straight I am completely stoked. Attached is a word doc that’ll go into Heavywater mag:

Took it out to the north shore twice, town once, long distance once and also did a little SUP paddle workout at Ala Moana Beach park today with no wind. I’ve never seen the bottom which is twenty feet deep. It was kind of weird. These Kurtis’ are unbelievable.

So Heavywater Cali man Cody Graham told me about these new surf goggles called Kurtis and how well they work so I tell him to send some over. Kurt, the man behind the product is on it immediately and I give it a test drive:

One straight week and I have to give it a perfect 10 points for these reasons.

  1. These ultra lightweight goggles come with neoprene neck strap and after getting blown down a lip a Laniakea on a six-foot face, the Kurtis goggles are still in one piece. They also float.
  2. Kurtis goggles are 100% UV protection for your eyes and the polarized lens makes it easy to see the reef on low tide. Took it out one day and on a super glassy day you can see down 20 feet. What a trip. Perfect for SUP days.
  3. The other thing is that they wrap around your head so your vision is fully protected from that side glare.
  4. These glasses also have the easiest water slide off I’ve ever tried. No more water splash build up.

No more cataract surgery, macular degeneration, pterygium or corneal damage. Ask for them at your local core surf shop like Wet Feet in Aina Haina or go to Www.KurtisUSA.com. Also or call Kurtis USA (310) 498-1994.”

-Mike Doyle (Surfing World Champion, Surf Instructor, Inventor, Kitesurfer, Legend, Baja, Mexico) – “Kurtis Surf Goggles are da best.”

-Marina Chang (Kiteboarder, Publisher – The Kiteboarder Magazine ) – “I used your Duke sunglasses at Sherman this weekend and these are by far the best water glasses I have ever used! I have a flat Asian nose! Most glasses don’t fit as they rest on my cheeks and fog up. Lol. I normally end up ripping glasses off my face after five minutes or so but yours worked perfectly for me. I am really STOKED.”

-Vadim Yampolskiy (Kitesurfer, Board Club Owner, Kharkov, Ukraine) – “really excited about the Kurtis Surf Goggles, like peace came from space….”

-Barrett Perlman (Pro Wakeboarder, Model, Actress) – “I love your product! I think it provides protection for something that is extremely overlooked in water sports and I for one really don’t want to fry my eyes.”

-Karen Gallagher (Surfer, Surf Instructor North Shore, Eye Cancer Survivor, Oahu, HI) – “I Love Them! I have been using Oakley water jackets for 8 years, ever since I had a basil cell cancer removed from around and behind my eyeball and these are much better. More comfortable. I can see better. They don’t get spotted or fogged as easily. Best of all, they protect my eyes better; with the Oakleys my eyes would still be really red and irritated after a long hot day out in the ocean and with Kurtis my eyes stay happy and the whites are still white! I can even read in the nights after I am out for hours, which was unheard of before. Thank you so very much.”

I never really thought about protecting my eyes in the water until my doctor brought it up. So I went online and found you guys. Everyone I talked to at Kurtis was extremely helpful and got me really stoked on Kurtis Surf Goggles. I now wear them everyday, whether its surfing, kiteing standup paddling, body surfing etc. I teach kiteboard lessons in the summer in the bay area and I go to school at UCSB surfing everyday. I love to educate people on the eye problems that Kurtis Surf Goggles can fix. I love spreading my stoke that I have for your products to my friends and the surf and kite communities. So basically I just want to give you guys a HUGE thanks for making these amazing products that have really helped me and countless other people.”

-Randy Orzeck (kitesurfer, Hood River Oregon and Maui, HI) – “I wanted to thank you again for the amazing shades. Not one popped blood vessel in my eyes all summer.

They look great and are comfortable and stay in position after heavy landings. The thing about them I liked the best was the clear visibility. The goggles have great peripheral vision and seconds after falling in the water the lens was clear and definitely no fogging, a real problem I had with the other brands I tried. Great work!”

-Patrick (Surfer, cancer survivor, Maui, HI) – “…the chemo was gnarly and gave me another retinal detachment, so the surgeon put a buckle around the eyeball and filled the eye with silicone oil for 7 months. After chemo, I got back right away into the surf. I could not have done it without your goggles Kurtis. I surfed with one eye until the silicone oil was removed. I also like this new wax formula easier to use (H20-H8R Lens Spray) I do my part spreading the word by example.”

-Donna Milliken (Surfer) – “My eyes are so relaxed when I surf in my Kurtis Goggles.”

-Peter Katz (Surfer, Durham / Kitty Hawk, NC) – “I purchased your Kaiser Bowls Surf Goggles last March and have been really, really happy with them. I began looking for surf goggles after I started developing pingueculas in both eyes from sun exposure, and although I wasn’t familiar with Kurtis I got the sense that your products are really desinged for serious conditions. Since then I’ve been happy with every aspect of these goggles, not only do my eyes feel great after surfing they also really help with what would otherwise be blind takeoffs in stiff offshore winds.”

-Moran Ben Abou(Surfer, Kiryat Yam, Israel) – “I love you Kurtis. I got them minute after I email you and nobody happy as I am. Will refer you a lot of people. Thanks, thanks, thanks. On my next visit in the USA I’m coming to your shop.”

-Jeremy Gee (Surfer, NZ) – “Hi guys. Love you’re goggles. You guys are legends. The glare down here on the west coast of NZ is insane dude! Cheers and thanks for making such an epic product!”

-Roey Balbus (Surfer, Sydney, Australia) – “Since I got them I have been acting as a Kurtis model in Sydney beaches and have been loving them. Thank you for creating such a great product, it’s been serving me well.”

-Greg T. (Surfer, California) – “Great! Thanks so much Kurtis. I guess you can hoot me off any wave. Still loving them. All my best.”

-Erick Espinoza (Snowboarder, Big Bear, CA) – “I’ve tried the other brands, but nothing matches the fit and quality of your shades.”

-David Lector (kitesurfer, Malibu, CA) – “Your sunglasses and that anti-fog spray are phenomenal. The real thrill came when I took your sunglasses out, it was a nice sunny day and I had a blast. I kited with clear vision, no spray in eyes and no fog, that makes a hell of a difference. I can’t tell you how many sunglasses I’ve tried, but these are keepers. I lost them 3 times (I didn’t have the QR Leash attached to them) but because they float I found them very easy. Great product and service Kurtis.”

-Jay Langejans (Surfer, MI) – “Thanks for making some killer shades. This is my second pair!.”

-Glen Johnson (Surfer, Melbourne, Australia) – “They are awesome! Great case and cleaning cloth. Love your instruction manual. It’s funny especially about the waves snakes and the pic. Thanks heaps. My wife and I also own and love your bamboo Surf King sunglasses. So light and sexy. You don’t even notice you have them on. “

-Richard Councell (Surfer, North Carolina) – “This pair is for my wife. I have had my pair for over a year and love them.”

-Hale Kenworthy (Surfer, Costa Mesa, CA) – “Thank you, thank you, thank you! You’re the best. I love your products and your company.”

-Tomas Roche (Surfer, HI) – “I tried the Sea Specs and Oakley’s without luck, but Kurtis Surf Goggles are 1st class!!! They work great! Thanks,”

Many, many more, but none of this matters until we know you’re avoiding the glare and shouting “No Fried Eyes.” We want you to be STOKED!
