Very positive test with an electrical shark repellant moulded into a surfboard today!
Today might be the most significant day in a long while for South Africa's sharks and surfers. We completed the first in an exhaustive battery of tests to come, but I am hugely optimistic that we may be on the right track. This unit is much smaller than any I have tested in the past but packs quite a punch and in the highly antagonistic baited environment that we tested it the sharks left the bait alone. This is a great start.... just maybe we can get rid of the nets now.
