Shark Deterrent Dive Suits Hidden in Plain Sight

[28/11/13] 

If there is one knack a species can have in nature, it’s to disappear. It doesn’t matter how strong you are, how sharp your bite, how unquenchable your blood lust – nothing trumps being able to vanish. There are countless examples of effective camouflage in nature; the uroplatus gecko of Madagascar blends in seamlessly with the moss growing on jungle trees; leaf mimic katydids masquerade as decomposing undergrowth; seadragons look just like clumps of swaying kelp; and female lions appear and disappear with ease thanks to a coat that’s uncannily similar to savannah grass at dusk.

Surfers can now take a leaf out of nature’s book with the revolutionary shark deterrent dive wetsuits from Radiator. Working on the principle that visual cues play an important part in the final stage before a shark attacks, the company has created two wetsuit styles depending on how ballsy you’re feeling. The Elude style helps the wearer virtually disappear into the background colours of the sea, making it harder for a fishy fiend to find you and playing on the principle that you can’t eat what you can’t find. Alternatively, the Diverter series may make you like look a dairy cow but uses precise contrasting and coloration to make sharks think twice before taking a taste test. Even if you’re not planning a dip in shark-infested waters, the suits are bound to be a hit with the lovelies at your local tiki bar.

Where the prey becomes the hunter.
