Well I wear hearing aids (30% hearing loss) and with them in then no tinnitus.

When I did (failed) the hearing test the hearing specialist asked if I could lip read.
Hearing aids do nothing for my tinnitus.
It's just.... There.
Constantly.

He says it's constant . Just a matter of time before he got aids.

And he’s blind in one eye. Figures since the wetsuit looks so shit.

Wore my new booties for the first time today. I will buy another pair.

They are not supposed to last. They're latex, like the piles of used condoms littering the back of crabmeat's van. But they were immediately usable unlike the usual learning curve when you first wear booties each winter and they really are low profile. I've just ordered some shoe coat hanger things from ebay China to dry them. I'm going to buy a second pair as backup. Bonus that the price is right. I think I paid about 40 pounds + 10 pounds shipping. Maybe 15.
Can’t see your piccie leej. What make are they? And would they suffer any walking in them? Or are they strictly on at the water’s edge?

Couldn't you just wear those neoprene socks some boogers wear?
Latex socks to ride 20knt onshore kneecappers in the rain seems a bit much.

Does anyone know about Derevkow wetties? Seen a few in the surf. Looks like they have a massive sale on.

They seem like another needs style setup, a mate has a 3/2 and likes it but it’s only new so can’t comment on quality.

I’m pretty much only ever going to buy Cskins again. Still running a zipless 3/2 rewired that’s 18months old. In Vic in the middle of July and still comfortable after a couple of hours in the water with a hood but no booties.

That's impressive, ledtool. The hood and no booties vindicates and assuages Shearer.
