What are the best earplugs for surfing?

I grew up going to lots of loud hardcore punk shows that at best left my ears ringing and at worst brought a stabbing pain that seemed to pierce my eardrums. It wasn’t too long before I realized I needed to wear earplugs. I got so conscientious that if I forgot my earplugs at a show — or even a nightclub with a loud sound system — I’d stuff whatever

Video: Komune Bali Pro
