The “Surf Lady” partnered with Boz Wetsuits to invent what she claims to be the first ever shark-repelling wetsuit. The ocean’s most dominant predador is known to be afraid of poisonous banded sea snakes. Therefore, the wetsuit resembles the similar black and white stripes that these fatal snakes are wrapped in. According to the Surf Lady, when sharks see black and white stripes, they avoid the object in fear. The wetsuit is now trademarked and patented with a black and white stripe, banded sea snake design.
Truth or myth? You be the judge.
