“ Finally, after a long & painful period of avoidance, my left ear was surgically cleared of exostosis (surfers ear) two years ago and my right ear almost 99% blocked and now booked in for surgery. “SurfEars” couldn’t have come at a better time in my life.

My doctor took one look at the product and his face lit up with joy…finally something he can issue to his never ending surgical roster of surfing patients…which is specifically designed to give us the ability to hear and engage with others while protecting ourselves from this extraordinary, natural response from our bodies to protect itself, again THANK YOU!! ”

SurfEars Earplugs

SurfEars Earplugs 3An exiting new style of earplugs from SurfEars are arriving at Zak Surfboards shortly.   SurfEars earplugs have been developed specifically to provide the wearer with a maximum level of sound/hearing & comfort, whilst maintaining the critical protection that earplugs provide from the elements.

As surfers in Victoria we are really at the mercy of the elements.  The cold water + windy conditions we find ourselves frequently surfing in, lead to many people in our community suffering from “surfer’s ear” – eventually having to go under the knife to remove bony growths in their ear canals.

Ear plugs help prevent “surfer’s ear” from developing, but many find wearing them uncomfortable. Until now, all the earplugs available on the market impede the wearers hearing to some extent – this negatively effects your balance + your connection with your surrounding environment – therefore hindering your ability to surf.

SurfEars Earplugs 1SurfEars have been designed with  technology usually found in high end audio products.  Their overall design and more specifically their use of acoustic mesh + core replicates the natural resonance you would get from not wearing earplugs at all.  With impedance testing showing close to zero acoustic loss in the frequency range of human speech.

SurfEars Earplugs 2The end result is protection for you ears that as close as possible replicate not wearing earplugs at all. These SurfEars earplugs will be available soon both instore & online.

- 74% of avid surfers studied had Surfer’s Ear
- prevents Surfers ear, also known as exostotis which may lead to costly surgery and deafness

Exostosis (surfer’s ear) is characterized by bony growth within the ear canal caused by persistent irritation of the bone by cold and water. Cold or warm air blowing into a wet ear lowers the temperature due to evaporation which stimulates bony growth. Also the skin’s surface is cooled by conduction, radiation and convection which causes heat loss that triggers bony growth.

Doc’s Proplugs is the only earplug that protects the ears from surfer’s ear by keeping a warm pocket of air in the canal and keeping cold water out without impeding hearing and balance. Anyone with severe narrowing of the ear canal can avoid frequent water blockage by wearing Proplugs, the earplug for sports professionals. Severe exostosis can be prevented from progressing by wearing proplugs and reinforcing consistent warmth by wearing hoods, hats and hair-bands especially when sleeping at night. Once severe exostosis develops and requires drilling,
