To scare off the sharks! Who knew?

We should do a study on how many kiteboarders/surfers were attacked with and without colorful board-shorts on. :rollgrin:


I thought most guys who wear boardshorts do so because most people don't want to see junk and gut hanging out everywhere...?

Scientists from northern Europe came up with an even better shark deterrent, proven to work!

You need to wear a small audio playing device that will repeat the following track:



I will kite this weekend, and if attacked by a shark, please use this post to explain how much I felt a part of the food chain.

Kindest regards,
