LED light-up surfboards could deter shark attacks
12 Apr, 2018 14:55:07 | surfertoday.com
 
A group of Australian scientists concluded that LED lights installed on the bottom of a surfboard could help avoid shark attacks on surfers. A series of tests using seal-shaped decoys with built-in lights revealed that sharks stayed away from their potential prey. "We tried to use lights as a strategy of counter-illumination. It breaks up the surfer's silhouette making it much less enticing for the shark to investigate," notes Nathan Hart, associate professor of Biological Sciences at the Macquarie University, in Australia.
