Shark Repellent Wetsuit, Surfboard and Attachable Device

Shark attacks are an issue worldwide, meaning there is a genuine need for shark-repellent products. My design incorporates shark-repellent technology into commonly used products. My products consist of a shark-repellent wetsuit, surfboard, and attachable device (all of which are harmless to sharks). These products are the first of their kind as they incorporate multiple protection points, thus creating a larger area of protection. This technology is invisible and will therefore not interfere with the user’s performance. My products require intensive research and testing, I'm looking for help, feedback, and advice from specialists on how to further develop my products.
What do you think?

Good idea to look at protection from sharks. You may find some of these ideas helpful when you search shark on IdeaSpies

What an awesome idea, for a very important need. Now it might just be 'Safe to go back in the water again!'

Hi Georgia,

What a great idea! Which materials will you be using for your wet suit? There's some great progress being made here in Australia to solve the problem of so many textiles ending up in landfill and being shipped overseas where they pollute places, generally impacting people in lower socio-economic areas. 

Here's one example: Happy to help you connect with the industry in this area.  

If you Google you'll find some other ideas like this: and this!

Feel free to email me 

Warm regards,

Chelsea McLean

Georgiaa @ 2022.06.20 1:58 PM

Hi. I just read about this in the Newcastle Herald. Fantastic and innovative idea! Congratulations on coming up with a really useful and much needed item. This will really improve surfer safety.

Good evening UpRising Designer

Two Days left before we close UpRising’s ‘People's Choice Seed Funding Award’. 

A few weeks ago, I thought, let’s shake things up and get you the help you need now…enter People's Choice Award..I thought we would get maybe 10 or 20 hits. 

No, you guys went ballistic! Over 5000 ‘Likes’ from all over NSW, some of you have even made the local newspaper!!! 

However, what is going to happen next is even better. 

This Thursday afternoon, 30th June, 5pm I will be announcing the 3 People’s Choice Award winners and how your seed funding $$$ will be transferred to you. I will also give you all a sneak peek at what this next level is all about, think, Australia's biggest most prestigious design event of the year..


Please jump into the zoom, Thursday, ask any questions about UpRising and let me know how we can make it even better for you.  

Join Zoom Meeting 5pm 30/6/22

Rock on Designers!
