SURF-BMB

FREEDOM+ Surf - SHORTBOARD

For surfboards under 6’6″. New design and colour. Designed in partnership with Tom Carroll and Ocean & Earth.

The FREEDOM+ Surf – SHORTBOARD has been designed in partnership with Tom Carroll and Ocean & Earth, as a seamless shark deterrent solution for surfboards, with no impact on performance. Surf the way you always have – with just a little more freedom.

Powered by Shark Shield Technology, this smart piece of high-tech kit comes with one Transferable Power Module, a Charging Dock with international options, and one Tail Pad / Antenna – SHORTBOARD ready to install on your surfboard. You only ever need one Power Module, so if you have multiple boards – simply buy an extra Tail Pad /Decal Antenna –SHORTBOARD (one per board) and you’re sorted.

FREEDOM+ Surf – SHORTBOARD vs FREEDOM+ Surf

When used on shorter boards (boards <6’6”) and boards with less volume, the electrical field produced by the FREEDOM+ Surf can ‘travel’ around the board making it uncomfortable for some surfers – e.g. you might feel the electrical field on your fingers whilst duck-diving.

To overcome this, we’ve designed the FREEDOM+ Surf – SHORTBOARD that features a shorter Antenna and smaller Electrodes to produce a smaller electrical field that you’re less likely to feel when using the product on a board under 6’6”.

On the flip-side, a smaller electrical field does mean that a shark can come closer (compared to the FREEDOM+ Surf & Tail Pad / Antenna) before sensing the electrical field and being deterred.

For boards 6’6” and over, we recommend using the FREEDOM+ Surf.
