    A few weeks back I got an “swimmer’s ear” infection after a turbulent surf day. I have tried various plugs, but they don’t feel very snug, so I am concerned to go out without a hood. Does anyone here know a solution that prevents ‘swimmer’s ear’, either good earplugs, drops etc.?

    Hey Jochen.

    Very good question. If you’re prone to get ear infections it will be a good idea to start wearing earplugs. Here in England majority of the surfers have started to wear them and even from a very young age. Of course, you want to prevent surfer’s ear as best you can. A few of my friends use Surf Mould Pro https://www.surfmouldpro.co.uk and speak highly about them. If you don’t live in England maybe you can find a similar product in your country.

    I hope that helps!

    Hi Jochen,

    I use the plugs from Surf Ears when the water is below 20°C. They come with a string so they can’t be lost in the water. I recommend them and they are easy to find.
