This industry has never had an answer to the biggest single factor that prevents students from learning to dive other than the denial that a problem exists and chances of shark attack are extremely minimal. What our industry fails to realize is that whether justified or not, shark phobia exists in the majority of people and their perception is a reality that cannot simply be explained away.

The bulk of our market is orientated to the existing trained diver. Following some recent shark incidents in our area, our sales of Ocean Guardian surpassed 150 units last year and I am convinced...
When I was first introduced to Ocean Guardian I was a little hesitant to prominently display the product. It was just so revolutionary that I needed some time to ask questions to existing clients and new students and to make sure I was not highlighting what I believe to be the single biggest factor that prevents people taking up diving.

I can still remember the first time I mentioned to a new class that we would be wearing them on their first sea dive. Amazingly, although some of these males were rather macho, every student seemed to breathe a sigh of...
Having just come off a boat, after 2 weeks spearfishing in the Coral Sea, I can say that the Shark Shield served me well. Many times I had half a dozen white tips after my fish and they couldn”t get close. One time I turned my shark shield off, burlied up, put my fish on a Bombie and then let the sharks come in numbers to get a smell. I then turned my shield on and as much as they were very determined, it was like they were getting punched in the head by a invisible fist. Felt good to...
In the midst of a cloud of fish and blood I put the second grouper on the stringer. I am determined not to let these bulls have their way as they rush in trying to get to the fish during my slow ascent from 130 feet all the way up to the surface. As they charge in, I am glad that I have my Shark Shield turned on. This wonderful invention puts a protective electrical field around me that shocks the sensory receptors called Ampullae of Lorenzini in the shark”s snout. I love wearing the Shark Shield while spearfishing because...
Most of my customers would never admit to having shark phobia, until I admitted that I do!

One of our biggest markets here is spearfishing which puts them in the higher risk category because of the nature of attracting sharks. These guys tend to have a “macho” personality and the purchasing of an Ocean Guardian tends to attack their masculinity. We very successfully overcame this issue by promoting it to “save their catch”, this justified their purchase and kept their testosterone level high – everybody suffers from shark phobia, even these guys.

I believe I was one of the first shops that...
In the past 10 years I have done around 12,000 dives in open waters as a professional coral collector. For about the last 5,000 dives, I have used the Shark Shield Mariner and had it cable tied to my hooker line. In those 5,000 dives only once has a shark come into me. In this instance it was a large hammer head that came in to about 4 meters, then flinched and shot off. I did not see the shark for the rest of that dive.

When I take other divers out for a day and they do not use a...

The unit is well designed. Installing the pad on the board, charging and fixing the Ocean Guardian to the pad was relatively simple. The big advantage of the Ocean Guardian unit is the peace of mind it gives. Having used the unit about a dozen times, I have found that I am much more comfortable going surfing by myself or in ‘sharky’ locations/times of the day. If I am unsure which board to ride I go for the board with the Ocean Guardian attached (I am buying new pads for my other boards).

I had previously heard the argument that, as...
I have been using the Freedom 4 Shark Shield successfully for the last 3 months. I fish for pelagic game fish off the NSW coast, very often on my own. The Freedom 4 has granted me peace of mind when far out at sea on a solo fishing trip. I mount the device through the draining holes that are in the middle of the ski.

The wetsuit part goes under straps on the base of the ski and the cable hangs down through the holes. This results in the device offering protection directly below where you sit on the ski. I...
My brand new replacement unit arrived yesterday and I just wanted to thank you for your great service and no-fuss approach to business. Like a lot of divers I bought an Ocean Guardian after a bad encounter with a great white.

Knowing something wants to eat you without sustaining an injury from its prey (me and my spear) is quite chilling. It took me a while to get my mojo back!

My second encounter with an even larger GWS went differently – probably because I was wearing an Ocean Guardian. The shark came up, checked out me and the kingfish I’d just...
