I know they make waterproof ipod cases and water proof headphones, but how easy are these to use while sufing and how durable are they? Does anyone have any positive or negative experience with listening to music while surfing, i am considering trying it out.

Surfing with music?
I am curious as well. I have read that it is a bit muffled with water interference. But, it may be worth it. I have music I listen to for every mood and every activity. This is one that I would love to make playlists to also.

it would be annoying to have that on, but i think i'd surf 266.66% better and harder with my music somehow playing.

The only experience i've had with them, was other people not being able to hear me while im yelling to them down the line not to drop in. Pretty frustrating. Maybe it would be cooler is people only wore one earbud? It takes away a lot of the alertness you need while surfing, but whatever floats your boat.

i've never had any experience w/ this, positive or negative, but it seems like a pretty stupid idea to me. just another way to tune out the world around you.

Give it time and there'll be a hood with an implemented earphone jack... -_-
I never listen to music during any exercise, running, hiking, OR surfing, it ruins the true connection to the sport in my opinion.
I know what you're saying. But, for me, it just ends up becoming background music when I get into the zone (especially when running, snowboarding, or exercising).

surfing isn't exercise...it might be a hell of a workout, but it's not "exercise" in the typical sense. thus, no music for me. if i'm cranking out 5000 meters on the erg at the gym, fine. if i'm outdoors, give me the sound of what's going on around me.
