Modem Shark Leash

Surfing is one of those actives that can potentially come with a deadly price. While rare of course, shark attacks are a reality we all face before heading into the water for our semi-regular aquatic rituals. It’s the perfect metaphor: darker entities lying beneath surface-beauty. And with more and more surfers entering the waters around the globe, we’re continuing to invade the natural habitat of these ancient carnivores. Luckily, the Modom Shark Leash is here to keep us safe.

The shark leash looks just like any other leash used for keeping you within arms-reach of your board. However, a closer look reveals Sharkbanz deterrent technology fully integrated into the leash’s design. It uses powerful magnetic technology, strong enough to damage electrical and medical devices, and requires no batteries and doesn’t lose its power as time wears on. Since sharks are animals with some of the most powerful electrical senses on the planet, such technology disrupts the system by causing a highly unpleasant sensation for the animal, thus turning them away.

The product’s been tested by marine biologists on the most common predatory shark species such as bull and tiger sharks and results show that these leashes leave no harm done on the sharks or other sea animals. It’s available now online for about $185. [Purchase]
