Designed in partnership with Tom Carroll and Ocean & Earth
Powered by Shark Shield technology and designed specifically for surfers, the FREEDOM+ Surf is a fully integrated solution with no impact on surfing performance. It is the ultimate ocean guardian for surfers, providing protection against sharks, including Great Whites, giving you peace of mind to enjoy your surfing.
The FREEDOM+ Surf comes with everything you need to turn your surfboard into an electrical shark deterrent. It includes one Transferable Power Module, a Charging Dock with international options, and one Tail Pad / Decal Antenna ready to install on your surfboard.
If you would like to kit out additional surfboards with the FREEDOM+ Surf, simply purchase a Tail Pad / Decal Antenna for each additional board you’d like to use. You only need the one Transferable Power Module as you simply move this between tail pads.
Sharks have short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food. Shark Shield’s patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes unbearable spasms in these sensitive receptors turning sharks away, including Great Whites.
With the FREEDOM+ Surf, this electrical field is created via a sticker-thin adhesive Decal Antenna on the underside of your board and powered by the Transferable Power Module that sits in the kicker of the Ocean & Earth, custom designed Tail Pad.
Shark Shield safety products are the ultimate ocean guardian providing peace of mind for surfers, divers, and ocean lovers around the world, while supporting shark conservation by removing the need for shark nets and culling.
