Ocean users turn to shark repellent devices

Maui Weekly

The Maui News - The unprecedented spike in shark incidents this year in waters off Maui have caused an upsurge of oceangoers buying pricey shark repellent devices they say are worth the money. "I ordered mine [online] shortly after the German girl got bit," said Kihei resident Drew Young, who frequently dives and spearfishes in South Maui, often near Palauea Beach, where 20-year-old Jana Lutteropp was attacked in August. A shark bit off the German visitor's arm, and she died at Maui Memorial Medical Center a week later. A second fatal attack occurred Monday, Dec. 2, when a shark bit off a Washington man's foot while he was fishing from his kayak a half-mile off Makena Landing.
