Yeah, the black cord is a antenna for the shark-shield that puts off electric current.
Here is what the manufacture says:

The unit incorporates a 2.2m flexible mesh antenna, which has been designed to cause minimum water resistance and drag on the user. The antenna is required to be fully submerged in salt water to function and once this happens the electrodes within the antenna emit a protective electric field.


How it works

Shark Shield emits a protective electrical field via its antenna. The unique wave form elliptical field only affects free swimming sharks and to a minor degree rays and skates. The field generated by the Shark Shield is detected by the shark through its sensory receptors known as Ampullae of Lorenzini, situated on the snout of all predatory sharks. The unique and unfamiliar pulsing sensation emitted by the Shark Shield does not replicate that given off by a fish and does not attract sharks to an area. Shark Shield allows you to hunt, photograph or just swim with all other marine animals roaming freely in their ocean settings.

Dude, ouch. I mean, it's funny knowing you were okay, but only because. That had to suck. Glad you didn't get hurt.

That is sooo funny!!! I seem to remember her saying that it was an intense shock when she grabbed it...then, to quote Mr. Hoekstra, "Awe...it's not that bad." Do you care to redact your statement Mr. Hoekstra?

Good diving with you guys..

Well "it's not that bad" on the hand, the head is a different story.

Been shocked many times by buddies before I bought one. Now I only get shocked every other time I turn it on. I've had a buddy's antenna hit me on the head and spine several times. It is not much fun, but it sure cut down on my electroshock therapy costs!

That was hilarious. I wish I could have been underwater to film that from a different perspective.
