These are PERFECT for any watersports. I am an avid wakeboarder and I would not trust anything else while I am on my board. The style is very snug and stays on even with my hardest falls. I always get compliments about how sweet they are on the lake.

I bought these for surfing the East Coast in the morning.

If the strap fits snug on your head they won't fall off. The rubber and flat sides make them comfortable for all day wear too. I like the strap because you can hang the sunglasses safely from your neck.

The water solution is nice for about 20 minutes then it kinda wears off and doesn't really matter anymore.

The saltwater hasn't done any damage to the glasses.

I love the G30 lense, although if I were to buy them again it would definitely be the polarized lense for pure water use only. Also these are more for sweating while riding a dirt bike. For surfing, I'm tempted to get a pro M-frame with a strap and polarized (heater or sweep) instead (maybe file some vents into it too).

As for styling, well, these aren't very fashonable (like EZ Rider on steroids) but you don't buy them to look cool, they are niche/activity related.

Glad to be the first to reveiw this one. This is what you wear Wakeboarding or Jet-skiing. totally cool. Looks just like the Racing Jacket but has a behind the head strap for water sports. I love them and they are still going on strong. Thank God they are not discontinued

These are very cool. They've been on my wish list for as long as I've known about them. Now my wife wants a pair as well. I'm glad that Oakley re-released them, and I'm ready and willing to drop the cash for another pair.

Bought as fishing glasses. I use a buff headwear to make a ninja/balaclava sleeve for my head top keep the sun off which works brilliantly, but any sunglasses worn fog up as a result.
The vented design means my vision stays clear, the polarized lenses enable me to spot fish and the strap stops me losing them.

If only they came with easily replacable lenses so I could add some transitions or more contrast toned lenses (fire iridium polarised springs to mind)
the permanenetly erect (eh hehe hehe!) arms makes strage/transport a bit more of an issue but not much

still, for they are they do what i want them to do
and they are comfortable as well (even if i scare small children, dogs and my wife!)
