I used to get tinitus and found a faint "swishy" noise would cancel it out, like the sound when you rub your finger & thumb together by your ear. Obviously you can't do that as you're falling asleep but maybe a radio tuned between stations (white noise) at low volume would work?

Not really man, everyone is a bit stressed about where we are going at the moment but I've been through that before without being bothered by it. Might be the noisy cow who sits behind me bleating down the phone all day, she is so loud that you can hear her even with iPod turned waaay up. She has been sent office etiquette emails before and I have actually asked her to keep it down a bit but within two days she is back to her usual bloody loud self. Maybe that is what is stressing me out. That and a lack of waves! Could get that sorted this week though I hope :)

Ach well, am investigating alternate employment options anyway so maybe things will change soon, dunno if it will fix the ringing in my ear though!

Welcome to my world. Have heard getting ears syringed can help, but also heard it can make it worse. And there are loads of quack remedies on the net that guarantee results :roll:

It's a bugger in't it? Mine really gets brought on by sudden noise.
My Mrs is a bastard for doing that two fingers in the mouth whistle thing (louder than any Bloke i've ever met) as the team runs out when we go to rugby.
I spend the next 3 hrs with whichever ear was nearest to her ringing like fuck.
At least it won't happen this year.................Mounts Bay are dead :-( :-(

Our smoke alarm at home goes off easily, and it leaves my ears ringing for a few hours.

So, did you actually bring your stick and wetty to work today gaybar? Reckon you could handle a wave this evening? Although if the wind doesn't come round I might head south down the coast to look for some shelter....

You'll be writing the book on surf injuries soon Debs.

Anyone know a good way of stopping killer neck rash? Or am I being a pussy :-| Think I'm going to put a band of gaffer tape around my neck next time.

EDIT - why are all my pics supersized! :-(

I am surfing in my scabby old GUL suit at the momnet, that gives me a nasty neck rash like that, so I always wear a long necked rash vest. Vaseline can help apparently.

Vaseline (or KY jelly if you don't want stains on your suit... oo-er missus!)

T'was a brand new suit and a 5hr sesh that grated me so. Maybe I should cut my neck beard 8)

Maybe I'll cut up an old rashie into some sort of neck loop anti-rash gaurd jobbie. Not too keen on wearing a rashie under my suit as they just end up rolling around in there and rashing me up somewhere else.

Why is KY so much better than Vas? Or is that a question for another forum...

Never ever had that happen and wear a rashie of one sort or another all the time?

i get horrendous neck and arse rashes....prob cos of the feast or famine nature of the east coast i think...

KY is water based and so does not rot the neoprene...

vaseline defo rots neoprene cos i used to put it in my knackers and my arse and it fucked the seal on me winter suits...

the result is you got litttle hoels were your knackers are so they get hit flushed with cold water first...nitemare.

To Poo....
My neck looks like zebra skin but do I care?
I've also got scars on my sides just under my armpits from my old summer suit that used to eat me & they're 9 months old.
The reason you worry is that you are too young and vain to know how bad your body will fail as age takes over when such things become a sign of healthy activity!!!!! :P

I get armpit rash so use Vaseline to reduce, and also neck rash now my suit is older.

I also have a bunion type thing on my front foot on the outside that's gets much worse after surfing my log, it feels like I have a fracture in my foot (I have had one before) but I won't admit it hurts to the mrs or she will stop me surfing and make me go to the Dr's (where I will probably catch swine flue) :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Debs, I would give up if I were you :shock: :wink:

Black, dude, I'm 30!
Which is way too old to be saying words like 'dude'.

I got those armpit scars too, they don't hurt anymore so much. Kinda hoping my neck will turn to leather and total sensory deprivation will occur in that region. It just kills so much trying to look over your shoulder when paddling for a monster 1ft close-out. :D

Maybe you will develop callouses on the back of your neck, and you will look like a tortoise, or Nikki Lauda.
