Thanks to Glyn Brackenbury and all the Outdoors Adventure instructors at Skern Lodge, Bideford, Devon who invited Surfplugs down for Surfers Ear information and ear checks on all 30 of their staff! With such a range of activites and accomodation for over 200 kids on site I reckon you will be wearing the Surfplugs for more than just surfing!
Well... planning a lesson to over 30 Year 7 to Year 11 students at Bideford College today was a new experience. The kids have been involved in 'The Skate Project' and have developed skateboards and balance boards for their own enjoyment (and their bloody good too - as I found out when I sneaked a go on one). Fortunately it went well (so I am told) and the kids really enjoyed the grusome surgery shots of surfers ear. If that wasn't enough then putting the video camera down their teachers ears to see how much wax they had really hit the mark. But eduction education and education is what we are really about at Surfplugs. We provide a solution for avoiding ear problems before they start and educting the kids at this age was a great opportunity! thanks to Paul Fordham and all the kids who turned up!
I have sold Surfplugs in some of the most unlikely places. This week was one of those situations. Thanks to Simon Twitchen (formerly of Point Breaks) who cornered me in the carpark at Halfords when I was buying some car polish! - 5 minutes later the impressions were done. So if you see me STOP ME - I have normally got all the kit / leaflets & information in the car. Cheers, Rob
