BoardLams + Shark attack mitigation systems

Sep 26, 2017Gabe Acosta

It's time to finally address the elephant in the room. Or shark in the room?

We’re stoked to announce our partnership with Shark Attack Mitigation Systems.

Developed by the Australian company, Shark Mitigation Systems, these shark deterrent designs are based on years of research led by the Oceans Institute at the University of Western Australia. This opportunity brings together SAMS cutting-edge technology with BoardLams signature Printed Ricepaper and FiberLams. Most importantly, however, it will bring you and your loved ones peace of mind.

Clearly we aren't the only ones excited about SAMS patented technological breakthrough. Taj Burrow has teamed up with SAMS to promote this potentially life-saving technology. Check out their promo video below:

So how does it work?

"Yeah, yeah, Taj rips. Sharks are scary. But how does this stuff work anyway? I need some science, man!"

Well, dear reader, allow us to throw on the lab coat and goggles, and hit you with some facts.


  • While sharks locate prey using a number of different senses, their vision is the key sense used in the final moments before an attack.


  • The SAMS Diverter design breaks up the silhouette of the surfboard to appear as separate objects, unlike normal shark prey, such as a seal. This reduces the risk of a mistaken identity bite and allows critical time to exit the water.
