Shore Guard "Dumbo Surfer"

Protect Our Shorelines and Beaches from Contamination During an Oil Spill

The Shore Guard, aka “Dumbo Surfer”, is designed for use in turbulent water and light surf to protect shorelines by capturing and retaining released oils, oil sheen and oil-borne contaminants.

For oil releases on open waters or near shorelines, use interconnected sections of the Dumbo Surfer with watercraft at each end. Use a "U" or "J" formation and slowly tow the interconnected sections through the impacted area.

The Shore Guard is constructed with 4 ears that are approximately 5 inches wide surrounding a boom gallery that accommodates a 5" dia. by 10' long removable polypropylene boom for flotation.
