Tip – find the answers to one of the questions below the entry form…Good Luck!

What is Surfer’s Ear?

Surfer’s ear is caused by exposing your ears to wind and cold water, which triggers the bone around the ear canal to thicken and form lumps, known as exostoses. Over time, as the bumps continue to grow, the canal becomes restricted and the ear drum is no longer visible; a complete blockage can lead to substantial conductive hearing loss. The colder the water and wind, the greater the risk factor and speed that the exostoses will grow – although you can up your wetsuit thickness to combat the cold, you’re completely missing your ear safety if you do not protect them.

What is Swimmer’s Ear?

Swimmer’s ear is a bacterial infection in the external ear canal/outer ear. After being in water, particularly with high levels of bacteria (open water swimmers and triathletes, beware) it can be tricky to get the ears dry. They then become warm and damp, the perfect environment for an ear infection.

This can lead to itchiness, inflammation and if you are really unlucky, discharge from the ear as the infection runs its cause. It is therefore necessary to keep your ears as dry and clean as possible, which is why swim plugs are vitally important.
