Shark deterrent device @sharkbanz_australia has come onboard as the “Official Safety Partner” of Hurley #BLsBlastOff2018.
They will provide 24 of their Sharkbanz to the event. Every surfer at the will have the handy watch-like device available to wear and use – they will be available to pick up when you grab your rashie to surf in your heat.
The Sharkbanz is an anklet that radiates a frequency that sharks don’t like. BL says “We’re stoked to be able to provide this handy safety technology to the kids to use at Blast Off. While our area isn’t known for sharks, nor have we ever had a problem with them, it is a great precaution we can offer.” There will also be a few Sharkbanz being given away throughout the week for lucky winners.
