While JUNIOR will fit most children between 4 to 12, everybody grows & develops at different rates.

Gauging the entry to your child’s ear canal is straight forward & will give you a good idea as to what plug will best fit your child.

If the entrance to your child’s ear canal is larger than 8mm in diameter, then buy SurfEars & custom fit these to fit your child. There are three sizes in each SurfEars pack.

Below we have Chris & his friend Kayden. Both Chris & Kayden are 11 years old. Chris is wearing JUNIOR which fit him well. Kayden’s ears are already too big for JUNIOR, but SwimEars fitted with the small buds fits just right.

After a long wait, JUNIOR will be arriving next week! While it may have taken longer than expected, it’s nice to see that the R & D team have taken all the time & care in the world to create a kid’s earplug that’s second to none. Utilizing the experience & knowledge that they have gained designing SurfEars & SwimEars has enabled the creation of an incredibly user friendly, functional & robust product that also looks smart.
JUNIOR lets in more sound than any other kid’s earplug currently on the market, allowing kid’s to socialize with each other or listen to instructions when in the water.

While the ergonomic & comfortable fit ensures no water can enter the ear canal, preventing painful & uncomfortable ear health issues such as swimmers ear (otitis externa) and surfer’s ear (exostosis), abnormal bone growth in the ear canal associated with extended exposure to most water based activities.

The light weight leash safely secures the plugs to the user, significantly reducing the chances of plugs being lost in the water.

Unlike Both SurfEars & SwimEars, JUNIOR does not have adjustable buds or wings. Just one solid piece per ear has been found to work much better with kids. This means no lost, broken or easily swallowed parts.  

JUNIOR is suitable for most children ages 4-12­­


Harsh Reality of Surfers Ear

I have been surfing for 12 years and battling with ear infections for roughly the last 5 years. The ear infections would come and go on a regular basis and keep me out of the water for periods of time and wide awake at night.

I started surfing when I was 12 years old and acoustic earplugs were just a dream having tried most plugs that were available at the time. The only option was Blu-Tack which blocked out water and sound. Blu-Tack was not a good option as you would isolate yourself from any conversation in the water & it made it impossible to have any timing or balance when surfing, which took the fun out of it.

In 2013 I started going to the ENT department at the hospital to get my ears assessed and find out what my options were, stronger drugs or surgery...  Finally 3 years later and a lot of ear infections and time out of the water I had my exostosis (surfers ear) surgically removed in September 2016. After 2 month recovery I’m finally back in the water. Unfortunately I have to go through this whole process again to get my other ear cleared out.


 2 weeks after surgery the, scars in my ears were still bleeding.
