On this episode of The Surfing Podcast we discuss the recent deluge of great white sharks in the waters off Southern California, WSL superstar Felipe Toledo’s Brazilian storming of Oi Rio Pro judges’ tower and subsequent one-event suspension, and we talk with SurfEars surfing earplug inventor and company founder, Christian Dittrich.
BTW, SurfEars’ Christian Dittrich used to work at Nokia.
Our host says something different when introducing the Christian’s interview. Mainly because he was dropped a lot as a child and isn’t all that bright. Many apologies.

The Surfing Podcast – SurfEars Ear Plugs Interview
Here’s a brief video explaining what the heck SurfEars earplugs are, how they work and why they’re better than other surfing earplugs. We actually tried a pair and they work really well and you can definitely hear a lot better in them.
