Wetsuit Design Improvements Have Worsened Surfers Deafness

The design and fit of wetsuits has improved over the last few years.  Improvements in material technology have resulted in wetsuits keeping surfers warmer for longer. This allows them to keep surfing for longer. This may be great fun but many surfers don't protect themselves against surfer's ear.  The risk is higher when you spend longer in the water. In order to do this they need to wear surfing ear plugs such as ours from http://zenplugs.com/molded-earplugs/ and a cap.  The wind and water cool the outer ear and mastoid bone. This results in the ears growing bony lumps around the opening to the ear canal.  These gradually close the ear over. Affected individuals notice deafness when the narrowing reaches 90% of the diameter of the canal.  As wetsuits are keeping people in the water longer, the rate and severity of surfer's ear is increasing.

ZenPlugs Surfing Ear Plugs are ideal for preventing surfer's ear.  They are comfortable and highly effective at keeping water out of the ears, preventing cooling of the ear canal.  You must wear a surfing hood pulled low over the ears as well. This is in order to keep water away from the mastoid bones behind the ears as this can also lead to the exostoses forming.
