What We Like:
The Surge is a price point sunglass that will stay on your face. The Typhoon sunglass by Lip has insanely high quality lenses but they are pricey. The Surge is less than half the price and you get a great fitting pair of glasses, everything that you need to keep them on for kiting and a carrying case.
The vented poly carbonate(PC) lens will let air flow through so the lenses won’t fog. They are polarized and will keep water and sun out of your eyes.
Once you wear the Typhoon it is hard to downgrade to the Surge. The Zeiss lenses on the Typhoon are such high quality that everything else pales in comparison. That being said some people just don’t want to kick down over $200 for a pair of water shades.
The Surge has smaller face coverage than the Typhoon and a different fit. If the Typhoon didn’t fit or are too big, then check out the Surge.
Lip has figured out a way to guarantee you don’t loose your water glasses. Their glasses retainer uses a sturdy lock on attachment piece and the retailer strap will not stretch or give when it is wet. This retainer strap attaches to a silicon hoop that you wear around your neck. Some people don’t like to wear the silicon hoop because it is one more thing to have to fuss with. If you want to be 100% sure to keep you glasses from flying off, use the retainer strap and the extra silicon hoop.

The Surge is a high quality sunglass with all the accessories you need at an affordable price.
Who are we? Rising from the flames of a corporate global meltdown, LiP is driven by its passionate and innovative founder Dirk Michielsen.
For over 20 years, he has been a dedicated windsurfer and award winning eyewear designer, his mission, to develop the perfect eyewear for himself and fellow waterman who are living their outdoor dreams, those exposed to the elements and those living on the LiP.
Over the years, Dirk has encountered countless people across the planet who share the same passion for watersports and the outdoors. Their feedback, both positive and negative, has been continually yet subtly contributing to the design of the water shades he has created over the years.
To be able to have 100% control over all aspects of design, production and quality, Dirk decided to be his own boss and so LiP was born. A new forward thinking brand, committed to bringing the highest quality product to you and your retinas!
