You know what’s really gross about surfing? Surfer’s Ears! You know what’s the solution? SurfEars™!

The project was kicked off in 2011 as a result of one of the inventors catching a serious ear infection during a surf trip to Morocco. Totally deaf on one ear, the ear infection lasted for a week and was a real pain to get rid of. It wasn’t the first time it had happened and surely not the last.

Having tried nearly all ear plugs on the market without satisfaction, the Swedish inventor thought it was time to develop our own product that really works. They thought about a product to protect our ears from cold air, water, dirt and bacteria without affecting hearing or balance, which are import when surfing or doing other water sports.

Throughout the testing phase the plugs have been exposed to everything from icy cold winter swells in Sweden to tropical surf in Barbados. The final result is quite amazing as to the proud developers: It will eventually help thousand of surfers, swimmer and any other water sports athlete to avoid ear problems and stay connected to their environment while enjoying their sports.

Jez Browning Jah Shaka Surf Also Jez Browning, JahShaka Surf Teamrider and surfing since 30 years, thinks the result is pretty amazing:

"I've used plugs ranging from blue tack, foam plugs, sorkies and finally my favourite which were doctor pro's surf plugs. The last ones I've been faithful for most of that time. The pro plugs over time go a little sticky, the leash that keeps them around your neck breaks, and eventually I lose them. The SurfEars™  plugs are brilliant. They are of much better quality, more comfortable too. I was very worried of losing them as they don't have anything other than the wing to hold hem in. However after having many failed tube attempts at Supertubos plus other heavy floggings the only thing I lost was my pride,  Earplugs still in! So far very, very impressed"


Each SurfEars package comes with

  • One pair of pre-assembled earplugs with medium sealing gel and medium support wings
  • Two sealing gels size small
  • Two sealing gels size large
  • Two support wings size small
  • One pretty cool case

At the moment the SurfEars are available via Kickstarter only. The Jah Shaka Surfshop is one of the first dealers in Europe you can get your hands on these tiny but great gadgets!
