Ocean and Earth Logo

The FREEDOM+ Surf – SHORTBOARD has been designed in partnership with Tom Carroll and Ocean & Earth, as a seamless shark deterrent solution for surfboards sized 6'6" and under, with no impact on performance. Surf the way you always have – with just a little more freedom and peace of mind!

  • The world’s most scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Nothing is more effective.
  • Proven to deter Great Whites, Tiger Sharks and Bull Sharks.
  • Easy to install yourself on old or new boards. No need to involve a shaper.
  • Designed for boards under 6’6″. For boards 6'6" and over, we recommend using the FREEDOM+ Surf.
  • Sticker-thin (≤ 500 microns) adhesive decal antenna adheres to the underside of your board and connects to the Tail Pad. No impact on surfing performance.
  • Transferable Power Module can be removed for charging and used on any board fitted with the custom designed Tail Pad / Decal Antenna or Tail Pad / Antenna – SHORTBOARD.
  • Transferable Power Module features a long-life 6-hour rechargeable lithium battery, and LED power on/off and battery life indicator. Allows you to have a couple of surfs on the one charge.
  • A foam insert (included) can be used in the Tail Pad kicker for those surfs when you don’t want to use the Transferable Power Module.
  • No known permanent harm to sharks and does NOT attract sharks.
  • Not suitable for children under 14, pregnant women or those with certain medical conditions. Read more here.
  • Covered by Ocean Guardian’s Standard Warranty

A custom Ocean & Earth Tail Pad houses a blue Transferable Power Module containing a rechargeable lithium battery. The Tail Pad is connect to a decal antenna with electrodes located at each end. The decal antenna wraps around the rail of the board and adheres to the underside of the board. When turned on and submerged, the electrodes emit a three-dimensional protective electrical field.

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 can feel the electrical field on your fingers whilst duck-diving.

To overcome this, we’ve designed the FREEDOM+ Surf - SHORTBOARD for boards under 6'6". It features a shorter antenna with smaller electrodes to produce a smaller electrical field than the regular FREEDOM+ Surf. This means you're much less likely to feel it when using the product on a shorter board or board with less volume. The power output is exactly the same which means it packs just as much punch!

  • Protective electrical field size: Electrical field approx. 2.5m (8.2') long x 0.5m (1.6') deep
  • Oblong shaped electrodes measure 2cm (0.78") wide x 10cm (3.93″) long and are spaced approximately 36cm (14.17″) apart.
  • Transferable Power Module weight: 250g (8.82oz)
  • Transferable Power Module size: 208mm (8.1") L x 63mm (2.48") W x 28mm (1.1") H
  • Operating time in water: 5-6 hours
  • Battery life pack: Nominal 1000 charges

Powered by Shark Shield Technology, this smart piece of high-tech kit comes with 1 x Transferable Power Module, 1 x Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD, 1 x Charging dock with international options, and 1 x foam Tail Pad Kicker Support.

You only ever need one Transferable Power Module, so if you have multiple boards – simply buy an extra Tail Pad / Antenna (one per board) and you’re sorted.

The FREEDOM+ Surf - SHORTBOARD does not include a surfboard.
