SharkShield – Gadget Used To Ward Off Shark Attacks

Posted on August 24th, 2013 by Mike

As there continues to be more and more shark attacks world wide, companies are putting together Shark Attack devices to ward off the sharks.

Greg Blunt of Leard2Surf has put to test the SharkShield devices put out by the Natal Sharks Board.

The SharkShields work to repel swimmers, divers, and surfers safe from sharks.

“The SharkShield… creates an electro-magnetic field that causes a muscle spasm in a shark… within its radius of operation,” said Brunt.

“We do regular classes, often for corporate clients, and we wanted our clients to know they would be safe in the water with us.

“The SharkShield has a range of four to five metres and it has been proven to be an effective shark repellent. We have bought two units with the help of Men’s Health magazine and hope to get even more.”
