You might feel this is a situation you won’t encounter surfing on the Mornington Peninsula, given that most shark attacks (even two recently this year in May and June) occur on the west coast of Australia. But don’t forget our beloved surfing spots are not shark free.

Just a little further north, off the coast of New South Wales, Shark Shield’s Freedom7s were used to protect crew members during filming of the Hollywood blockbuster The Shallows. The Shallows is a shark attack thriller that sees surfer Nancy – played by Blake Lively – cling to a rock while being circled by a great white shark. The Freedom7 is an electrical shark deterrent originally developed for people diving and fishing, but in collaboration with Ocean & Earth (the world’s leading manufacturer

of Surfboards & Surf Hardware, based in NSW) and surfing champion Tom Carroll, Shark Shield has developed a whole new device called the Freedom+Surf. The antenna electrodes on this device have been designed into a sticker-thin adhesive decal that you apply to the underside of your surfboard. With a weight of just 250grams and a near zero drag adhesive decal antenna (only 600 microns thin), there is no impact on your surfing performance.

The Freedom+ Surf essentially turns your surfboard into an electrical shark deterrent. So, slap one on your board this summer, head to Cape Schanck, Flinders, Portsea or perhaps Phillip Island and catch some waves safely. The Freedom+ Surf is available at sharkshield.com
