eSharkForce[edit]

eSharkForce is a company that designs and markets the eSharkForce Ultimate Shark Protection with a surf leash for US$549.99. The company that offers Electronic Shark Defense System (ESDS) was founded by Wilson Vinano Jr., a long-time Honolulu surfer.

Electronic Shark Defense System[edit]

The ESDS omits electric waves that interfere with the gel in a shark’s nose and keeps them away from those individuals in the ocean.

The ESDS is a small, shark deterrent device that repels sharks from the area while in the ocean thus, increasing the user’s safety. The ESDS sends pulses through the water that are easily detected by a shark’s sensory system, causing them to stay out of the signal range while keeping surfers, divers, and swimmers safe from encounters with sharks. The device is attached by a strap, similar to surfboard or stand-up paddle board leash to the ankle. When the ESDS senses water, it turns on automatically and can last up to 9 hours before recharging. The device measures 2.6 x 2.3 x 1.0 inches and weighs about seven ounces.

Adam Walker used the eSharkForce Ultimate Shark Protection on his ankle for over 17 hours while swimming across the 26-mile (42 km) Molokai Channel from Molokai to Oahu.
