Suitable for most children age 4-12. With ear sizes varying from child to child, the suggested age range should be used as guide, but it isn’t an exact science. If you’re uncertain about which size to choose for your child, you can try to measure the opening of the ear canal which should be 6-10 mm (0.24-0.4 inches).

The findings from a recent survey released by the Water Base Research Unit at Bond University have highlighted an immediate need for a product on the market to target the issue of auditory exostosis, or Surfer’s Ear.
Preliminary findings from a study carried out on a number of the world’s best professional surfers by the Water Base Research Unit at Bond University show that 100% of high level surfers suffer from some level of auditory exostosis, or Surfer’s Ear.
The likelihood of Surfer’s Ear drops slightly in recreational surfers, but it’s easy to conclude that as wetsuit technology continues to improve and people can surf in cold water for longer periods of time, ear infections and cases of Surfer’s Ear will continue to rise, leading to an increase in the need for medical attention and ear surgery to repair damage.
The Water Base Research Unit – comprised of Doctor Vini Simas, Associate Professor Mike Climstein, Professor Wayne Hing and Associate Professor Rodney Pope – conducted a survey of 14 highly ranked professional surfers for a paper published in the Medical Journal of Australia, and found that all but one had auditory exostosis in both ears, despite only one of them ever having been previously diagnosed. The remaining subject had auditory exostosis in one ear. Do the math, and Surfer’s Ear didn’t miss a single tested surfer.
A revolutionary product developed by Ear Labs, a team of professional designers and dedicated surfers in Sweden, SurfEars differentiates itself from other earplugs on the market by ensuring that hearing and balance aren’t affected. Many surfers cite these concerns when asked why they steer clear of earplugs, so clearly SurfEars, nominated and winner of both SBIA and SIMA awards are a game changer.
Surfng legend Tom Carroll, a lifelong battler of exostosis, has worked closely with the product development team, and after undergoing long overdue surgery on both ears couldn’t be happier with the latest version of SurfEars.
“My doctor took one look at the product and his face lit up with joy!” says two-time world champion Carroll. “Finally something he can issue to his never ending surgical roster of surfing patients, specifically designed to ensure the ability to hear and engage with others, while still protecting us from this extraordinary, natural protection response from our bodies. Thank you!”
