#2809: SharkSheath

It seems that shark repellent technology is not very effective.

Today’s invention offers some additional safety for surfers.

It consists of a buoyant, carbon fibre surfboard which is made of two layers (blue and pink). Between these, are two fold-out sides as shown in section on the left. (This operates like a fold up shopping crate).

When a surfer sees a threatening shark, he or she opens the box (A) and clambers into the space. This acts as a shark cage.

The cage floats on the surface until a rescue by boat can be effected.
