Has anyone tried Blu Tack yet for use as earplugs? According to a surfing journo writing in the Cornishman newspaper last week dated March 15th Blu Tack is excellent as long as you do not get it stuck in your hair. lol. The gentleman that wrote this is called Sam Bleakley, he is a good surfer and ultimately recommends that we make appointments through the audiology department of the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro and they will give a test, measure up our ears with silicon gel which hardens to the exact shape. 30 - 45 pounds a set he writes.
Just figured I would bring this to others attention just incase you do not read that paper. A doctor on Fistral beach recently checked lots of surfers ears for abnormal bone grow and found that 90% of surfers are in need of some action to stop the problem.
It has come to the point where the surfing community is being taken in hand by the professionals and personally I am very grateful for this.
Would like to see things from your point of view but cannot seem to get my head that far up my arse.
I always get water stuck in behind the blutack and it really annoys me, a few guys seem to swear by swimmers ear plugs, pretty cheap and apparently work well. theyy look like little mushrooms. a twat cap keep a lot of the water out in winter anyway,.
blue tack has been the ear plug of choice for those in the know for years,cheap,re-usable(one blob normally lasts a couple of months) and isnt a pain to get more when you get them blasted out of your ears on a big beat down.
one 99p pack should last the good part of a year.
call me weird but my ears seem to have built there own barrier to the cold and water in the way of hair the insides of my ears are like a piggys ear seems to do the job... on a different note my daughter put a tooth in her ear cause she wanted the tooth fairy to leave some money only found out 2 days after had to go treliske hospital to get removed....
i use proplugs find they fit really well and don't let much water in, tried using blutack but it just fell out mid sesh so i had to go in because i get really painful earaches when cold water enters my ears.
u say that mattee thats wat i would of said before i got surfers ear bad !!!! wats 65 quid if u keep good hearing and dont need to have a operation where they have to drill your ears out with a black and decker f**k u jim
now thats just being f**king stupid fact is if you surf for a long time in cold water you have a real good chance of getting surfers ear did u not f**king see spotlight the other night !!!!!! i hope u f**king get it you b**stard just to prove a point !!! but dont come running for me for advice cause u wont f**king get ok !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
