Rolling & white water kayaking in colder water temperatures is enough to develop Surfers Ear. Surfplugs® will also assist in reducing the risk of ear infection associated  with poor river water quality.

Surfers Ear is caused both by cold water & the effect of wind blowing over the surface of the ear. Windsurfers are particulalry prone to Surfers Ear problems. Surfplugs® provide the ultimate solution.

A kite surfer has flown into the record books by sailing 275 miles from France to Ireland.

 

A kite surfer has flown into the record books by sailing 275 miles from France to Ireland.

 

Bruno Sroka set off from the Penn Enez beach at l'Aber Wrac'h in Brittany at 6.25am on Friday morning and hit land in Co Cork more than 16 and a half hours later.

The 240 nautical mile (275 miles) kite surf challenge saw him reach Crosshaven at 10.02pm on Friday night, making him the first man to complete the journey.

"It was very difficult but today I feel proud of what I have done. I had rather good wind during the biggest part of the crossing and the last part of it was the hardest one," he said.

"The wind was dying rapidly and I was obliged to change the boards that I was riding. No matter what, all that counts is to arrive to the finish line."

After 16 hours and 37 minutes at sea, he was greeted by around a dozen boats in Cork harbour as the light began to fade.
