Shark Pods Becomes an Official Sponsor of Salty Sports Society’s Speedo SALT Series

July 23, 2021

The partnership alliance allows Shark Pods to showcase and enhance its product line targeting open water swimmers, triathletes, and water enthusiasts.

Saint Augustine Beach, Florida – Salty Sports Society, a leader in beach sporting events, has signed Shark Pods as a sponsor of the Speedo SALT Series.

Shark Pods, invented in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, are made for open water swimmers, triathletes, lifeguards, and surfers to reduce the number of shark related incidents. Shark Pods will begin various activations with Salty Sports Society immediately, including product discounts, social media campaigns, and on-site product launches, among others.

“We are beyond thrilled to bring Shark Pods, a brand known for providing a sense of security while in the ocean, on board as an official Series sponsor,” said Salty Sports Society Co-Founder Matt Dunn. “Safety is the number one focus of our team when planning for an event and the Shark Pods brand aligns perfectly with that mindset and the lifestyles of the participants that swim on our Series.”

Known for creating destination weekends with a la carte event activities from Friday evening to Sunday, Speedo SALT Series competitors can at times face strong currents, warm or cold water temperatures, and unpredictable weather. Shark Pods will eliminate certain safety concerns allowing each swimmer to have a confident swim and a fantastic overall race experience.

“The inevitable fact is that every time we go in the ocean, we have the chance to encounter sharks. While the likelihood of a negative interaction is rare, it is always best to be prepared.

This preparation includes being vigilant about your surroundings while you are enjoying the ocean. Wearing a Shark Pod is another great safety step to add, as it disorients one of the main senses a shark has. This is called electroreception; it is the shark’s ability to sense electrical fields generated by muscle movements. This product sends out magnetic fields into the water around you which can disorient a curious shark forcing them to swim away,” said Marine Biologist, Michael Feldner.

“We are extremely excited to sponsor the Speedo SALT Series and have the opportunities it affords Shark Pods to expose our products to a new market of ocean enthusiasts,” said Don Wight Shark Pods Owner.

Currently with thirteen color combinations, Shark Pods can be ordered to fit any swimmer’s style. Deep discounts are offered on Shark Pod 4-packs for lifeguards and open water Clubs to purchase for members.
