    YES! I've been surfing about 20 years all year round and never wore earplugs. I was told recently by my doctor that I have developed a surfers ear in both ears. Ear plugs will definitely help prevent this, especially when worn under a hood.

    earplugs and a 5/4

    yes you need them. best are macks (blue box) silicone disposable. change often as
    they can be vehicles for infection. a 5/4 is ok for 37 deg h20; a heated vest under it
    even better.
