Hey Surfriders! We're excited to announce our recent partnership with Shark Shield.
Lindsay Lyon, Managing Director of Shark Shield says, “Surfrider supports Shark Shield as a non-invasive for the shark, and the fact that is doesn't impact surfing performance or surfboard design. As the worlds only scientifically proven and independently tested shark deterrent, it is a highly credible sponsor for this foundation. We are look forward to offering ongoing support.”
To celebrate our new sponsorship, Shark Shield is offering a free FREEDOM+ Surf bundle to one lucky winner! All new memberships & all membership renewals made during October, November and December will be automatically entered into a drawing to win Shark Shield's FREEDOM+ Surf bundle. So be sure to renew your membership or to become a new member today!
About the Shark Shield FREEDOM+ Surf bundle
The design of the all new FREEDOM+ Surf is the result of collaboration with Ocean & Earth and 2 x World Surfing Champion Tom Carroll. The removable power module with LED indication for power on/off and battery life, is housed in the custom designed Ocean & Earth tail pad kicker, enabling you to move the power module easily between your boards and for recharging. The all important antenna electrodes have been designed into a sticker thin adhesive decal applied to the underside of the surfboard. With a weight of just 250 grams and a near zero drag adhesive decal antenna (only 500 microns thin), there is no impact on your surfing performance. This FREEDOM+ Surf bundle includes everything you need to turn your surfboard into an electrical shark deterrent.
About Shark Shield
Shark Shield is for professional adventurers. It is the worlds only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Sharks have small short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for locating food. Shark Shield’s unique three-dimensional electrical waveform turns sharks away by causing unbearable spasms in these sensitive receptors. Used by professionals, such as navies around the world, Shark Shield is a safety device providing peace of mind, while supporting the conservation of sharks. If you’re serious about adventure, you wear a Shark Shield.
