Oh yeah, plugs are good. I had some nasty ear infections when I was a grom. Water sloshing around inside and no matter what you do, it won't come out.

What about balance issues? I seem to have balance problems caused by just wearing a neo hood. Seems like earplugs would make that worse?

Brian, I wear a hood at least half the year and have never noticed it affecting my balance. And I didn't notice any effect with the earplugs either. If I have any effects in the future I'll mention it though!

Hey Michael- If you want the real deal, try out Doc's Pro Plugs, generally about $8 or $9. They are sized so it's best to try them on. One of your local surf shops may carry them.

I like the vented ones, without the safety line.

Thanks Andy...I'll keep a lookout for them.

Bill B. wears Docs all the time. once we were down in Hatteras in June, it was @ 95 degrees & Bill lost the plugs so he had to wear a HOOD.Well later that day we went into shop just looking around when we overheard this guy saying to another "hey did u see that kook out there today wearing a hood ?" yes it was very hot & very funny but it was a good day & we shralped !

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
