SAMS.

Applying breakthrough science which reveals how sharks view the world, SAMS has developed two main design variations to reduce the chance of attack.

SAMS Cryptic™ pattern is mainly suited to divers and swimmers and makes it very difficult for a shark to see the wearer in the water. 

SAMS Warning™ pattern is primarily suitable for surfers and presents the wearer as unlike shark prey – even something poisonous or unpalatable.

While the patterns may look simple at a glance, there is a complex regime of patented science behind each one. Due to the fact that the colours will be perceived differently by a shark at various water depths, you’ll need to check the design suited to your main watersport
