Random happenings in surf for the Week of March 26

| posted on March 31, 2012

Hopefully you won the bajillion-dollar lottery this week. If not, here are some things to distract you from your misery.

Hope You Didn’t Buy Stock in This
According to The Australian, a great white shark in South Africa ate a Shark Shield, the anti-shark device that attaches to your ankle or the tail of your surfboard and supposedly lets off a shark-repellant electronic field. There are now “concerns that the electronic fields generated to repel sharks may attract them.” Rod Hartley, director of Sea Change Technology, which manufactures Shark Shield, says, “Nobody wearing a Shark Shield has ever been attacked by a shark.” (Yet.)

A Boxing Surfer, or A Surfing Boxer
World Tour surfer Paige Hareb, told Stuff.Co.nz that she will juggle her surf career with boxing professionally. Last year, she lost her major sponsor, Billabong, and now says, “I need to find other ways to fund my travel around the world, for the Dream Tour, and this is a way for me to do it.”
