For fiberglass surfboards under 6'6". 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 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!
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 theFREEDOM+ Surfcan ‘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 regularFREEDOM+ 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 protective field of around 2.5m long x 0.5m deep is smaller than the regularFREEDOM+ Surfbut the power output is exactly the same which means it packs just as much punch!

For boards 6'6" and over, we recommend using the FREEDOM+ Surf.
NOTE: The same Transferable Power Module can be used on both the regular FREEDOM+ Surf and the SHORTBOARD version.
