7- SURFING EARPLUGS - SURFEARS 3.0

Have you ever heard of exostosis? If you haven't, it's what is also known as Surfer's Ear. Basically, it's when you ear bones grow due to the exposure to water and results in some cases in a lot of pain. Fortunately, this can be prevented by wearing earplugs. Wearing earplugs is strongly recommended to all surfers, or anyone who spends a significant amount of time in the ocean.

SurfEars 3.0 are the latest and best surfing earplugs ever made, so do yourself a favor and grab a pair to wear every time you go out in the ocean!

During the summertime, the wax on your surfboard will melt away and lose its grip faster than any other time of the year. This can be prevented thanks to the HexaTraction grip! It's a sticker with traction and will replace the need for wax, keeping your board clean and grippy all summer long! Combine it with a thin cork front traction for extra grip.
