For surfboards under 6’6″. New design and colour.
The Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD is designed to house the FREEDOM + Surf Transferable Power Module 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 - SHORTBOARD), however, you will need a Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD or Tail Pad / Antenna for each board you’d like to use.
Feel safe and stoked, whenever and wherever you choose to surf!
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 use the Power Module. Check out our video on how easy it is to install the Tail Pad / Antenna here.
Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD vs Tail Pad / Antenna
When used on shorter boards (boards <6’6”) and boards with less volume, the electrical field produced by the original Tail Pad / Antenna 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 Tail Pad / Antenna – 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 short board, or board with less volume.
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.

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