For surfboards under 6’6″. New design and colour. You most likely have more than one surfboard. Install the FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Antenna - Mini on each of your surfboards so you can extend the use of the FREEDOM+ Surf across your quiver.
You most likely have more than one board. Extend the use of your FREEDOM+ Surf - SHORTBOARD across your quiver by simply installing the Tail Pad / Antenna - SHORTBOARD on each of your surfboards.
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.
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.
The FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad/ Decal Antenna is designed to house the FREEDOM+ Surf Transferable Power Module. One Transferable Power Module can be used across multiple boards (and is included in the FREEDOM+ Surf Bundle), however, you will need a Tail Pad / Decal Antenna for each board you’d like to use.
What’s included in the FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Decal Antenna
The FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad / Decal Antenna is a complete assembly with the tail pad connected to the decal antenna ready to install on your surfboard. It comes with a FREEDOM+ Surf Tail Pad, a Deck Housing with a foam block installed where the FREEDOM+ Surf Transferable Power Module fits. The Decal Antenna with the electrodes is connected to the Deck Housing so there is nothing for you to connect.
