What causes Surfers Ear?

Many people ask me 'what actually causes surfers ear?' If we look at the most basic explanation it is growth of the bone within the ear canal caused by the cooling effect of the wind over the moist skin layers. Its a protective mechanism, the ears are trying to close and restrict water into the ear. Read this story»

What does Surfers Ear look like?

Well you can't tell by just looking at someone, but as soon as you start looking into the ear canal the full horror of surfers ear starts to reveal itself. The slow growth of bone starts to close the ear canal - here's a picture of Tim Ellman-Brown's right ear, he's a surfer from Newquay (pictured above) but he's got some seriously messed up surfers ear! If you need to compare it with a normal ear then look at the inset photo which is the a normal open and clear ear canal. Read this story»

The development of the Surfplug

Well I suppose at some point you need to know who started Surfplugs. it was Rob Shaddick, Devon boy, Surfer, Surfers Ear Sufferer, Previous NHS Audiologist & Surfplugs developer. The problems with developing a Surfplug for surfing & watersports is finding a product that stays in. There are many products out there in Surf Shops but most end up falling out of your ears, clogging up the oceans or spending eternity rotting in the bottom of your wetsuit bin. Off the shelf earplugs will fit if you have a 'standard' ear but what about when Surfers ear has started to progress, or you have that awkward shaped ear or you just want the ultimate fit on the market Read this story»

A fantastic shot of our logo

I always get a buzz when I see the Surfplugs logo somewhere. Usually it's on the back of a van, somebodys board or stuck on a road sign. But occasionally our logos turn up in magazines when a photographer has submitted a photo of some grom doing a massive air and our logo can just be seen in the photo. It's probably too small for the reader to recognise but I do and I think it's great. So... you can imagine how stoked I was to see this great underwater shot from Zac Gibson which proudly displays 'Surfplugs' across the nose. Yes, its the end of a wave, yes the surfer has buried his feet in the face of the wave and yes the photo was taken by accident ... but sometimes those brief moments of randomness produce the longest memories.

UK's Chief Examiner Music Technology A Level supports Surfplugs!

About 3 years ago you made me some vented surfplugs. They are the most amazing things ever. It means I can carry on surfing; without surfplugs, I could no longer surf. I am a musician for a living so need immaculate hearing - I couldn't risk my bone growing any further; I'm about 80% blocked in my right ear. The doctor says that there has been no further growth in the last three years even though I surf 4 times a week. Read this story»
