Re: Ears

Can you see this https://reader.elsevier.com/reader/sd/pii/S1930043317306349?token=DDCC6CF04EC6BA38BECF3CACC805DA8A9FA9C9E166BD92231AF98EA8B92E8C58857642231C0E2B7896D2CC265A535452, Wyre?

Re: Ears

Ok, could someone tell me whether the temperature of the wind makes a difference?

Say for example these cold water upwellings with a nor'easter. Cold water in the ears, warm wind. I presume that any wind on your water filled ear is a problem?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Here, maybe this will help some of you, part one of a series https://www.coastalwatch.com/surfing/25305/surf-safety-series-episode-one-fact-fiction I enjoyed the second episode Nick. I'm genuinely surprised that dodgy dings are an issue! Who the hell would go out on a board with ragged fibreglass s...

Re: Ears

Shithouse Ricky G. Yeah it is horrible when you can't hear properly, very frustrating. I heard a tale recently about a man who was involved in an accident in India which had him in an Indian hospital where he picked up a stomach worm. A few months after that, he was rock climbing in Oz and ended up ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well certainly in the case of the aforementioned Island, it was a combination of all three!

Re: Where did you surf today ?

BD, we got the Island a couple of times in the Thursday and Friday. Been years since I've been out there.

So much fun but what a fcukin circus! Maladjusted Malibu riders and SUP nightmares.

Good to hear you got it to yourself.

Re: Ears

Yeah, they aren't supposed to eliminate all water just stop surges. I always thought it was kind of obvious my right ear was worse since I grew up getting whacked in the ear by a variety of North Coast Point Breaks. The perforated ones allow you to hear quite well. Ok gotcha. So, in warm water eg H...

Re: Ears

Ah ok. So if these plugs are letting in a bit of water, but protect from wind they may be ok.

Re: Ears

Also, where does the science sit on whether it is cold wind or cold water that contributes to exostosis? Or is it a combination?

Re: Ears

Ok BP, I took your advice like a mad man and got some Doc's Pro Plugs.

Now, the woman in surf shop fitted me as a small. I put em in at home and poured some water over my ear, and it seems like a bit still gets in.

Should it be completely dry or not?!

Don't wanna have to take em back.

Oh yeah, he's raring to go! His kick outs have always been killer. He was in town buying groceries, so the anger should be building nicely.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Godsave coming in like a whale wif knees. Omelette? I'm just coming in to the Heart Attack Zone, combined with a pitiable rescue res...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I haven't talked to him about it much. from what I gather I think it just gets too distracting for him, at work in particular. It's a shame as yes, his contributions are top notch. We are heading down to Bendy in a week, I'll give him your best. That is to say, I'll make him wear a Lycra cycling sui...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Damn these little tendrils of hope that my trip up to the mid north coast next Thursday might coincide with a nice easterly ground swell, Damn them!

I know I'll get skunked.

We all do.
I don't have one, unless you count the pink soft top. Brand name, 'Diva'.

Plenty of parking though!
