We now have the Freedom Shark Shield Surf Bundle in stock and available for purchase at Zak Surfboards. The Shark Shield is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Independent research and testing by universities (read more HERE) has resulted in a number of peer reviewed science journals confirming the technologies effectiveness.
The technology and patents have a twenty-year development history, in partnership with organizations such as the world’s leading experts in White Sharks, the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board in South Africa. As a result, Shark Shield is trusted by professional adventurers around the world, including navies, military and police divers, and is mandated safety equipment in many industries.
The design of the all new Freedom Shark Shield Surf Bundle is the result of collaboration with surf hardware company Ocean & Earth and 2 x World Surfing Champion Tom Carroll. The removable power module is housed in a custom designed Ocean & Earth tail pad kick. This enables you to move the power module quickly and easily between boards in your collection – it also makes this device simple & easy to recharge.
The Freedom Shark Shield‘s antenna and electrodes have been incorporated into a thin adhesive decal or sticker which you apply to the underside of your surfboard. This Sticker has close to zero drag (being only 500 microns thin), so there is no impact on the performance of your board. The Freedom Shark Shield bundles includes everything you need to set up your surfboard with this electrical shark deterrent. Ideally suited to surfboards over 5’10” with a bit of volume (so this product may not be suitable for super thin performance boards)
The Freedom Shark Shield Surf builds on the company’s twenty year history of designing the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrents. Sharks have small short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food. Shark Shield’s technology utilizes a unique three-dimensional electrical waveform which instantly turns sharks away by causing unbearable spasms in these sensitive receptors. This technology is trusted by professional adventurers around the world, Shark Shield is a safety device and is designed to provide peace of mind while supporting the conservation of sharks (by reducing the need for culling).
