Here you will learn more about us and why our mission to empower everyday ocean goers with confidence to live out their adventures freely is so important to us and our founder.
We want you to 'Fear Less' and enjoy the ocean more.
Our goal is to give ocean lovers the confidence to enjoy the ocean with less fear of a negative shark interaction. We've built a wetsuit that's been tried and tested to keep you safe on the chance you do have an adverse interaction with a shark.
Ride that perfect wave, snorkel through coral reefs or dive that wreck, knowing you've got shark-bite resistant tech on your side that really works. Dive in with confidence.
Our story started as a proactive response to the rising number of shark-related incidents on the north coast of New South Wales around 2017. Our goal was to design a wetsuit fabric that was scientifically proven to minimise the severity of injuries from shark bites. After four years of rigorous research, our fabric was independently tested by scientists from Flinders University.
Unveiling Shark Stop Fabric
Engineered to excel, Shark Stop fabric underwent meticulous testing both in labs and the natural habitats of Great White Sharks near Neptune Islands, South Australia. The results were groundbreaking. Peer-reviewed studies confirmed its exceptional performance in minimising punctures compared to standard neoprene during a shark bite incident.
