The 'SURF7' is a revolutionary safety device that helps surfers avoid shark attacks. For those who spend a significant amount of time in the ocean, shark attacks are a constant concern. Although shark attacks are rare, this device can help surfers and other water sport enthusiasts avoid these unfortunate encounters in the first place.

The SURF7 is a safety device that exploits a shark's sensory systems to keep it away from humans. The device emits a strong current that causes a jolt in the receptors of the shark. While this spasm is not harmful, it does drive the animal away. The device can be attached to kayaks, surfboards and stand-up paddle boards in order to help users avoid shark attacks while out in open water.

The device ultimately gives surfers the freedom to enjoy the water without the need to worry about harmful encounters with this dangerous sea creature.
