Surfshields are a market leading product designed to offer maximum protection, comfort and affordability. They feature a soft earplug with a removable advanced acoustic filter which allows in sound but blocks water.

Krissie Claire Surf blogger tested the new Surfshields, “I was so happy to be able to easily insert the earplugs in my ears before going for a surf. They were soft and comfortable in my ears in comparison to other surf plugs I’ve used.

I tucked the leash string into the back of my wetsuit and used the clip provided to attach them securely just in case they fell out! (they didn’t by the way). Guess what? I could hear everything going on around me! YAY! My ears were protected from the wind and water and I could still hear the waves, nature and friends chatting, this was a great feeling”
