To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to restore it, and to render it the more fit for its prime function of looking forward. - Margaret Fairless Barber

direct at www.proplugs.com, swimoutlet.com is also a good source.

they come in vented and unvented -- vented provide slightly better hearing and feel less like your head is in a barrel. good for in-and-out situations, like surfing or rolling. for swimming, i prefer unvented for maximum blockage.

I do have a fitting set if anyone wants to check out sizes sometime

Pool sessions are great for keeping up your Flexibility for those rolling skills and bracing skills during the long winter months, plus always good to stay in touch with your friends in the paddling community. The rate for just pool and practice time is $25.00/pp.

If you’re looking for a 2 hr rolling coaching session, we can work on the following, getting your roll down, learning different types of rolling, rescue techniques solo and assisted, along with bracing techniques to prevent a capsize. All stationary skills we can focus on without moving around a lot and using up pool space so other sea kayakers can work on their winter goals. This option will be offered at a rate of $100.00/pp and includes the pool fee.
If you are interested in a personal coach working with you please try and book in advance, so we can reserve your spot.
Give a shout by phone 860-304-4000 or you can email us at coach@kayakwaveology.com

Thanks John for this tip. Where do you get them?
The big downside of wearing ear plugs is the lack of clear hearing.
I've noticed that while wearing mine. I relied on hand signals and gestures
when paddling with a group.

Hi Folks,  let's meet at Bay Campus at 10:00. If the current wind forecast holds, then we'll launch from there.  it's getting colder - air temps in low to mid 40s, water lower50s - drysuits and layers - Gloves or pogies for hands, etc.
