FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD

For fiberglass surfboards under 6'6" and designed in partnership with Tom Carroll and Ocean & Earth. 

You most likely have more than one board. Extend the use of your FREEDOM+ Surf - SHORTBOARD across your quiver by simply installing the FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD on each of your surfboards!

The Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD is designed to house the FREEDOM + Surf Transferable Power Module (not included) and combined, they transform your board into a powerful shark deterrent. One Transferable Power Module can be used across multiple boards (and is included in the FREEDOM+ Surf and FREEDOM+ Surf - SHORTBORD), however, you will need one Tail Pad / Antenna or Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD for each board you’d like to use.

Tail Pad / Antenna vs Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD

The Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD has been designed for boards under 6'6". It features a shorter antenna with smaller electrodes to produce a smaller electrical field than the regular FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Antenna. This means you're much less likely to feel it when using the product on a shorter board or board with less volume.

The protective field of around 2.5m long x 0.5m deep is smaller than the regular FREEDOM+ Surf but the power output is exactly the same which means it packs just as much punch!

What’s included?

The Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD includes a Tail Pad, Decal Antenna and a foam block that can be used in the Tail Pad kicker in place of the Transferable Power Module for the times when you don’t want to the Power Module. Check out our video on how easy it is to install the Tail Pad / Antenna here.

NOTE: The same Transferable Power Module (not included) can be used on both the Tail Pad / Antenna and the Tail Pad / Antenna – SHORTBOARD.
