FREEDOM+ Surf Mini (Bundle)
For surfboards under 6’6″. New design and colour.
When used on shorter boards (boards <5’10”) and boards with less volume, the electrical field produced by the regular FREEDOM+ Surf 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 this ‘Mini’ version of the FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Antenna that features a shorter Antenna and smaller Electrodes.
The shorter antenna and smaller electrodes in the FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Antenna – Mini, produce a smaller electrical field than the regular FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Antenna, which means you’re much less likely to feel it when using the product on a shorter 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 regular FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Antenna) before sensing the electrical field and being deterred.
Click on the product images to see the difference between the size of the electrical field generated by both products.
NOTE: The same FREEDOM+ Surf Power Module can be used on both the regular Tail Pad / Antenna and the Mini version. There is no new Power Module for the Tail Pad / Antenna – Mini.
underwater.com.au is a registered store for Western Australian residents who qualify for the $200 rebate offer - to use this rebate for the MINI version of the Freedom+ Surf you will need to buy the normal version and tick the WA resident button and you will get your Shark Shield Surf+ Bundle at $200 off *T&C apply (see bottom of page) - you can then buy simply the Mini Antenna / Decal by itself and you get the discoun + you'll have electrodes for TWO boards, one long, one short - I hope this makes sense ...
WE GET YOUR REBATE APPROVED AND WILL SHIP STOCK AS SOON AS THE APPROVAL IS IN.
The FREEDOM+ Surf comes with everything you need to turn your surfboard into an electrical shark deterrent. It includes one Transferable Power Module, a Charging Dock with international options, and one Tail Pad / Decal Antenna ready to install on your surfboard.
If you would like to kit out additional surfboards with the FREEDOM+ Surf, simply purchase a normal size Tail Pad / Decal Antenna or the Mini Antenna / Decal by itself for each additional board you’d like to use. You only need the one Transferable Power Module as you simply move this between tail pads.
The science of freedom
Drawn by the call of the ocean; sharks or no sharks, we’re still going out there! Our solution is scientific, lightweight and powerful. With Shark Shield, we’ve replaced fear with awe.
Shark Shield has taken 20 years to evolve into what it is today: proven, reliable and non-evasive shark deterrent technology. Our two decades of tireless scientific research gives you the peace of mind to swim, surf, kayak and dive into the blue without fear.
The world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Nothing is more effective.
Proven to deter Great Whites.
Easy to install yourself on old or new boards. No need to involve a shaper.
Designed for boards under 6'6".
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.
The stadium shaped electrodes measure 3cm (1.18") wide x 10cm (3.94") long and are spaced approximately 36cm (14.17") apart.
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.

WARNING: We encourage people to wear Shark Shield when working in or enjoying the sea to minimize the risk of shark attack but sharks can be dangerous and often unpredictable creatures. While extensive testing has been done and great care is taken to develop and manufacture the Shark Shield range of products, it is impossible to guarantee that all sharks will be deterred under all circumstances. Water-based activities in the presence of sharks are inherently dangerous and are not recommended therefore we recommend that if a shark is sighted that the user leaves the water.
A large pulsing current is emitted from the Shark Shield antenna to produce the protective electric field. When unintentionally coming near or in contact with the antenna it is possible that muscle spasms can occur to various degrees and therefore the user may need to make adjustments to limit contact (for more information refer to FAQ's "will I get an electric shock"). In addition, anyone with a pacemaker, are pregnant, or has a health condition that could be affected by the electric field should not use the device. Such health conditions include heart disease, a history of heart problems, peripheral vascular decease, stroke, a history of fainting or epilepsy, or lung disease.
