RPELA on the Gold Coast tonight

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

RPELA, for those who don't know, is a Perth-based shark deterrent company.

Back in March the founder of RPELA, Dave Smith, held a Q&A in Perth to answer any question from the public or quell any fears. Tonight Dave is doing the same thing except up on the Gold Coast:

"Following our recent developments and upgraded product, RPELA inventor Dave Smith has been travelling to surfing destinations that have been hit hard by shark related incidents. RPELA offers an alternative option that empowers the user, keeps them safe, is comfortable and is easy to use."

"We'll be at Tallebudgera Surf Club tonight, 7th May at 6:30PM. This is your chance to meet up with some other preventative-measure minded folk, have a chat with RPELA Inventor Dave Smith, ask all your hard-hitting questions and get a better understanding of our research process, product development, and anything else RPELA related."

"We have a Facebook event for you to check out, and you can win a free $495 kit on the night!"
