Stop the common problem of getting surfers ear with Surf Ears 2.0. Blocks Dirt, Bacteria and Water but lets sound in. The Boardshop Crews favourite ear plug
Large numbers of surfers, swimmers and water sports enthusiasts suffer from ear problems associated with excessive exposure to the elements. Ear infections and the dreaded "surfers ear” is a condition on the rise with increasing numbers seeking medical attention and ear surgery. SurfEars 2.0® is a revolutionary new product developed by a team of professional product designers and dedicated surfers from Sweden. SurfEars recognised that the critical difference between SurfEars and other earplug products is they not only protect ears from water, cold air, and contaminants but also maximize sound and subsequent balance essential for most water and board sports. Many of the earplugs on the market today block out sound, therefore large numbers of surfers choose to go without plugs. SurfEars was designed to keep the water out but also let the sound in, to enable users to stay connected to the environment.
How It Works
SurfEars are designed with an acoustic mesh that can be found in high end audio applications, blocking out water and protecting the ear while allowing the maximum amount of sound to enter the ear canal. The mesh is connected to a plastic core designed to replicate the natural resonance frequency of the ear and boosting acoustic performance. Independent tests show that SurfEars have close to zero acoustic loss in the frequency range of human speech. We’ve redesigned SurfEars 2.0 so you’ll be able to hear even be tter. Inverting the fixation between gel and core, we’ve managed to increase the area of the sound channel by 72%, while the triangular shape of the opening has increased surface area by 32%.
Other notable improvements are:
• Improved hearing due to increased volume of sound canal
• Improved hydrophobic coating (HY+), stays unclogged longer
• Leash option with length adjuster & wetsuit clip
• New improved ear buds with improved fit water seal. Improved fit for those with advanced Surfers Ear developmentOne set of SurfEars contains:
- One pair of SurfEars, size medium
- One leash with adjuster
- Two sealing gels, size small
- Two sealing gels, size large
- Two support wings, size small
- An awesome storage case

Trident 669 Carbon Fixed Paddle
The Trident T669c stand up paddleboard (SUP) paddle delivers maximum power output and control for strong SUP paddlers. This versatile, ultra lightweight SUP paddle has a large blade and can be used in flat water, the surf and open ocean conditions.
The oval shaped carbon shaft is stiff which delivers an immediate transfer of energy from the paddler through to the blade face.
The carbon handle has an ergonomic shape that fits comfortably into the palm of your hand, and also features a moulded neck section that fits over the shaft once it has been cut to size.
Our new blade design, constructed from lightweight pre-impregnated carbon/epoxy materials, has a curved teardrop outline and features three distinct characteristics that create a smooth, efficient stroke.$415.00

The nose and tail of the Mini Mega Magic 2 have been pulled in just slightly to loosen the board up, we took out the step deck for a smoother transition from deck to rail creating a thinner rail for more sensitivity, feel and control.
Our super durable X2 construction makes this model the perfect travel companion for surfers needing a board that will perform to high standards and also withstand some tough treatment.
We Introduced FCSII fin boxes to the whole line up, snap in fins allow more versatility of fin selection on the fly.
X2 Epoxy Construction
This construction is used exclusively in the NSP and Surf Series programs. It focuses on making the surfboard a durable as possible. The EPS core is reinforced with Fiberglass and then a top sheet of Top Sheet is added to enhance the overall strength of the board. All the layers are fused together using a special epoxy resin that helps to create what we think is the most durable performance orientated Surfboard construction available on the market globally right now.

The Tom Carroll Paddle Surf (TCPS) Outer Reef Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) draws from the advanced hydrodynamic design features of the original Loose Leaf and Long Grain models applied to a more accessible and affordable range equally suited to flat-water and the surf.
OVERVIEW: Built in a very strong and versatile construction, the Outer Reef SUP offers additional volume all round, and sizes to cover the discerning recreational SUP paddler in the beginner-to-intermediate class.
DESIGN: Born from a focus on speed and paddle power to ride the outer reefs of Oahu's North Shore with ease. The complex, but highly effective bottom contours that feature across TCPS SUP's have been softened on the Outer Reef to provide efficient water flow over a large surface area, and offer high volume stability without sacrificing flow or paddle efficiency.
CONTOURS: The deep double concave displacement hull allows free flowing water movement through the underside of the nose while also reducing slapping. Subtle concave through the centre leads into a pronounced spiral vee out the tail which provides ample turning capabilities and prevents rail-to-rail sticking, especially in uneven, choppy conditions and when driving through unpredictable wave zones. A slight bevel on the underside of the rail enhances trim sensitivity on the wave face.
ROCKER: A more relaxed rocker on the Outer Reef offers exceptional flow on flat-water and entry speed onto waves, while still encouraging smooth turning arcs from the sweet spot position. The rocker has also been designed to allow freedom of movement from the back turning zone right up to the nose.
FINS: 2 + 1 set up comes with FCS II GL side bites which add maneuverability and control when riding waves, and a custom 9" TCPS single fin that's big enough to offer an efficient flat-water stroke rate, while still allowing for easy turning. Tom prefers to set the centre fin forward in the box to keep the tail free and loose.
PERFORMANCE: Available in 4 sizes, the TCPS Outer Reef utilizes technical design elements to increase flat-water paddling speed and enhance wave riding response. Fast, stable, yet sensitive to the rider, the Outer Reef SUP is considered a user-friendly model that offers a positive and connected feel to the ocean, be it on the open water or sliding down the face of a wave.
NOTE: rider weight is based on board volume and intermediate rider skill level.
