You do have to wonder what happens with QC sometimes.

I'm on my third year of a pair of Need boardies.....they live in my car. Completely abused.
The LS Spring I got last year seems bullet proof, though the rubber seems much less flexible than the last iteration. The seams and stitching seem a lot more solid.


I bought some Quiksilver waterman walk shorts from BCF, 2 weeks ago. They have a little stud/button thing at the front. Just walking around the Comp site the stud fell out, which meant all of a sudden the shorts are around my knees. The stitching on the pocket is also falling to pieces.
They literally fell apart on me within a fortnight.
Tried to return them at local BCF and every Gold Coast store but summer is over and all they have left are fat bogan sizes, so I guess I'll have to bin them.

I got a Quik low/mid range 3/2 steamer that is the coldest steamer I've ever worn. But I've had other ones that seem to go fine.

Independent Surf Co 4/3 steamer which I've worn a dozen times for in the dark dawnies in winter. Very, very warm. Very, very stiff, though it has loosened up a bit now.

My dream wetsuit: a 3/2 long sleeve springy with a back zip and batwing no longer exists.
This Steve being arse up at the comp site due to boardies malfunction is great.

The thing is you don't really notice till it's very well developed. Mine weren't anything more than a minor hassle at 80% blocked. 90% blocked it became a real issue socially.
How good is your hearing and do your ears get blocked with water easily?

80 - 90% ear bockage!

Mine is more than 90% in the right but it actually doesn't effect hearing till wax or water closes it over completely.
Kind of like an all or nothing situation.

the prefect solution to my occassional tinitus is dancing close to the bass bin in a club.
the top ends, extraneously, cause the ears ring a bit for a few hours after, but thanks to the bowel shuddering power of bass, next day, gone!.

Yeah, one ear. At 90% it started to be impossible to hear anything in a moderately crowded space like a pub or Restaurant. TV was turned up too loud all the time. People either thought I was very attentive or Fcuking rude because I was either straining to hear what they were saying or not hearing them at all.

Operation returned the hearing to normal but it grows back. Probably 70% hearing in the other ear now.

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.
