People ask us all the time how we came up with the idea to SwimEars. First and foremost - we LOVE watersports, and as passionate swimmers and surfers our self we saw an immediate need for a new standard earplug. And yes, we believe that we with SwimEars have re-engineered and re-designed what a watersport earplug is and should be all about, keeping water out, letting sound in.
4 reasons that you should consider as well:
1. Education - being able to hear your coach is evident for maximizing the outcome of a training session, and coaches loves to be understood the first time they try to explain something ;)
2. Infections and ear related problems - as a triathlete or a swimmer with a tight training schedule it's important to avoid periods without training caused by infections. More time in the water, fewer visits to the doctor - equals better results in the water.
3. Security - it is usually advised not to swim alone in Open Waters. Being able to hear your swim buddy in crucial situations is important.
4. Experience - as water athletes you "close down" many of the senses you usually use to navigate. Being able to hear in the water gives you a richer experience in the water.
Enjoy SwimEars, see you in the waves.
