Surfer’s Ear involves exostosis which are abnormal bone growths (bone spurs) in the ear canal. Irritation from repeated cold wind and water exposure initiates a protective action by the body causing the bone inside the ear canal to grow outward, constricting hearing and increasing trapped water issues.

Most avid surfers show at least mild bone growth, causing little to no problems. But, this condition is progressive, making it important to take preventative measures early on.  An informal study of professional surfer’s showed mild to serious Surfer’s Ear in nearly 100% of those tested.

Surfer’s Ear is not limited to surfing and can occur in any activity within wet and windy conditions, such as windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, jet skiing, kite surfing and diving. If left untreated, Surfer’s Ear can impact your hearing capabilities and, in the worst case, cause total deafness.

Ear Pro recommends contacting a doctor for advice when you notice even mild symptoms of Surfer’s Ear. If you suffer from severe pain or fever, you should see a doctor immediately or visit the emergency room.
