Alpine SurfSafe Details
SurfSafe Surfing Ear Plugs keep water out of your ears while you surf and swim, while still letting you clearly hear what's going on around you. Keeping your ears safe and dry can help dramatically to prevent swimmer's ear and surfer's ear. And unlike most traditional ear plugs, the filter that keeps water out allows sound to pass through, allowing you to keep your situational awareness (and your balance!).
Keeps Wind & Water Out - Protects Against Surfer's Ear
Where other ear plugs would have a filter to block out noise, SurfSafe ear plugs have a filter that keeps out water and wind. This is critical for preventing Surfer's Ear - a.k.a. exostosis, a dangerous condition in which the bones around the ear can thicken and begin growing into the ear canal. It's a big deal, and it's caused by the cold water and wind getting into the ears. Surfers are most at risk.
Also, the filter membrane that keeps the water out is also tough enough to keep on protecting your ears when you wipe out, keeping your ears from getting flooded, and preventing your eardrums from ripping.
Hear Important Sounds & Voices
Alpine SurfSafe is designed to let you hear what's going on around you. The filters let sound through clearly, so you can hear warning sounds and voices. This lets you stay safer during water sports. And it also helps you keep your balance better.
Secure Fit & and Lasting Comfort
AlpineThermoShape™ material softens and molds to the shape of your ear canals for a fit that stays comfortable all day. The earplug design is low-profile, so the ear plug stems stay out of your way. They don't give you that muffled or stuffed-up feeling the way foam ear plugs can. You might actually forget you're wearing them.
An optional cord is included. You can hang the ear plugs around your neck between uses, making it a lot easier to keep track of them.
Reusable with Cord + Free Pouch
Alpine SurfSafe ear plugs are reusable, so you can use them every time you play, practice, or compete. They come with a full set of free accessories, too. The free pouch has a nice secure zipper, so the plugs stay clean between uses. You can just toss the pouch in your pocket or purse (or even clip it to your key ring) and go.
To keep these reusable ear plugs clean and flexible, just occasionally hand wash them with gentle soap, rinse them thoroughly, and let them dry. When taken care of, one set of SurfSafe plugs are reusable over and over again.
SurfSafe Ear Plugs - What's in the Box?
Alpine SurfSafe can protect you from surfer's ear. Get the ear protection you need to help prevent infections and exostosis, hear clearly, and stay balanced on the water.
Each set has yet to make it through a surfing session without separating.
The overall setup going around neck is fine.
The clip where the ties are connected does not seem to hold up in surfing

Review from a surfer
November 19, 2022
I was only able to use these twice before they broke. The second time I used them while surfing they broke off when I tried to pull them over my wetsuit. It got caught on the wetsuit when removing the ear plugs.

Perfect Ear Plugs
July 4, 2021
Ear plugs were exactly as described both in size and quality. It is nice since they do not extend out of the ear. Another great benefit is that they are washable. So pleased!
