Kitesurfing is great fun and is becoming more and more popular as a sport in the UK. As well as being a physical sport that is demanding on the muscles, kitesurfing is also tough on the ears. Wind deafness is often a problem for kitesurfers and can ruin enjoyment of the sport. This is why we recommend kitesurfing earplugs whenever you are at the beach.
When you are Kitesurfing your ears may suffer because of cold water and whistling wind. This can cause you to have sensitive ears which are susceptible to tinnitus.
We often recommend silicone earplugs for kitesurfers. This is because they are waterproof and offer incredible sound protection. They also mould perfectly to your ears which means that they stay in, even at high speed! These types of earplugs even protect against the type of pressure damage that occurs when your ear makes a sudden impact with the water a result of a fall.
We recommend two brands of Earplugs for Kitesurfers as they have been tested by actual kitesurfers who have given us their positive feedback. BioEars earplugs are available in two attractive colours (Blue and Pink). They can help to prevent Swimmer’s Ear by stopping water from getting into your ears. The silicone in these earplugs also has built in antimicrobial product protection keeps the earplugs free of microbes.
We have also had good reviews from Kitesurfers about Hush Plugz Silicone Earplugs. Available in a handy carry case containing seven pairs of earplugs, they are made from medical grade silicone and are extremely soft and pliable. This enable you to get the perfect fit.
Finally, we also recommend Ohropax Silicone Earplugs. These Kitesurfing earplugs are perfect for water and noise protection of sensitive ears.
