The Shark Stop journey started as a response to the worrying number of shark bite incidents on the north coast of New South Wales. Haydon Burford, our founder, spent four years researching a suitable fabric to develop a shark bite-resistant wetsuit before progressing to the testing stage through Charlie Huuveneers, Head Research into Sharks at Flinders University. Shark Stop fabric has been put through rigorous testing with live shark bites as well as in the laboratory at Flinders University and has performed extremely well. These results have been peer-reviewed by a scientific panel. This research has found that the fabric can withstand the considerable force of the shark bite, while sustaining minimal pin-prick size punctures on only the most severe bite attacks, to prevent the catastrophic blood loss and loss of limbs that cause death in many shark attacks. Our goal is to limit blood loss as much as possible to allow time for first responders to arrive and treat the patient.
