    Earplugs should help. but either way you should definitely surf today. You can heal in October

    ear plugs bro- and clean it out with a 50:50 mixture of vinegarroxide after you surf... this will kill anything else in there and clean it out. ear plugs... ear plus... and netti pot the nose... then clean the ears... the ocean is dirty these days

    Mack's Earplugs, I wear 'em everytime. I picked up a nasty ear infection surfing during a red tide down baja way back in '04. By the time we got back up to TJ and I got some antibiotics, I'd lost a good bit of the hearing in my left ear. It's come back some over the years, but I still am about 75%. It's just an ear, but you only have two and the replacements aren't quite as good as the OEM parts. Depending on how good or bad the surf is, you might want to spend some time out of the water.
