Surfer warned of lurking shark by amateur drone operator using speaker system

A surfer, unaware of a shark lurking beneath him, has been warned of the impending danger by a quick-thinking amateur drone operator.

The predator was spotted just offshore at Werri Beach, south of Wollongong, as the board rider waited for his next wave on Sunday.

Christopher Joye says he used a speaker on the drone to alert the surfer, who quickly headed for shore.

“At Werri Beach today this large shark was approaching a surfer, and I used my drone’s speaker system to warn him,” Joye wrote.

“He looked up at the drone, then bolted, with the sudden splashing warding off the approaching shark.”

A good use of drone technology in an time of bad reports recently. With the world waiting for the oil prices to jump following the drone attack on a Saudi oil refinery yesterday, and the threatened drone strikes at Heathrow last week.

Not all drones are bad. I have a fishing drone still waiting to be used for the first time. Just need to find the time to use it.

  1. All sorts of good uses nobody had envisaged.
    Drone strike also used to blow up oil refineries in Saudi Arabia.

  2. That drone strike was a clever application. It’s such a small, targeted weapons platform and difficult to defend against. Plus, cheap.
