I was approached by a white shark while surfing at Surf Beach, California which is notorious for having had 4 shark attacks, two of them deadly.  I have FFREEDOM+ Surf installed on my longboard.  I could not see the full shark under the water but the dorsal fin was fully out of the water and was about a meter tall, a solid dark grey and a notch at the base.  It seemed to be an adult.  The shark quickly approached to about a meter from me and then quickly went a half circle around my board and then away,...

After using the original surf unit for the last ten years or so, the lack of an electrode cable when recovering a board in the impact zone was a revelation. No shocks, no tangles. The joy factor definitely lifted.

On one session I found that the power module was intermittent, and then stopped working. I put that down to a poor connection, so thereafter washed the terminals with fresh water whenever removing for charging, and was careful to ensure the power module was pushed home with screws just tight enough. I’ve had 8-10 sessions since with no problems.

Just thought I’d let you know that I’ve just returned from 10 days camped at Cactus (Penong).

Surf every day, often 3-4 sessions. The shark Shield didn’t skip a beat, charged up easily in the car and didn’t bother the car battery, even though it didn’t really have the engine started throughout. Only time it went flat in the water was after about 6-7 hours over 3 sessions without a charge.

Breaking hard 5-6ft on occasion but hardly noticed the Shark Shield (mounted on the board), except the odd kick after getting cleaned up and rolling in the white-water, resulting in the...
With all the shark attacks lately, it sure gives me some peace of mind knowing I have the Ocean Guardian FREEDOM+ Surf on my side just in case I have an encounter with a shark.

I am very happy to now be enjoying my surfing again. I grew up surfing the south west of WA (Great White central!) and never really thought much about the risk, but since having kids and with the issues we’ve had up here on the north coast of NSW, my primary source of relaxation quickly turned into a source of anxiety.

Just last Friday, Sharpes Beach near home was evacuated by the DPI helicopter as a 4m white was very close to the beach. I felt very comfortable paddling out at the same spot the next morning with my new Freedom...
Just came back from a surf trip and the new FREEDOM+ Surf unit is awesome. Such a huge improvement over the old one!

By June 2008 there had been a number of shark sightings at our local `extremely remote` surf spot deep in the Transkei home land on the East Coast of South Africa. On a number of weekends prior to this, the guys had been `chased` out of the water by some very large `men in grey suites`. On this particular weekend the waves were exceptionally good. During my second surf, while surfing with Andre Malherbe, one of our top surfers in the country ( just the two of us out ). I had my well used trusty 7 hr Surf Unit...
Just some feedback from our weekend at Stilbaai.

We both surfed together on the Saturday late afternoon at Morris Point, conditions were actually ominous- or felt ominous…some surfers came out because they felt uneasy being alone in the water.

We paddled out and only turned our devices on once we got through the break – we were definitely aware of the Shark Shields- either through a consistent pulse or a light shock with take offs…this was at first something to get use to and also sometimes on the take offs a little disturbing – but peace of mind that the shield did...
October 2018: I think your product (FREEDOM+ Surf) is great, it makes me much safer in the sharky waters of south east Florida and it is very sharky. First rate customer service too. This company stands by their products.

I use an Ocean Guardian for peace of mind. I have a wife and two young kids and I want to come home every time after I’ve been in the water. Before I bought my Ocean Guardian, I was questioning continuing with my surfing.

Initially, I thought it felt heavy, but once I was in the water, I felt nothing. I can quite easily feel seaweed on my leg rope, but with the Ocean Guardian there was no noticeable drag either paddling or surfing.

The price of a Ocean Guardian for that peace of mind is totally worth it.
