Atomic Aquatics has introduced a new fin design to expand its line of premier SCUBA diving equipment – BladeFins – now available worldwide at authorized Atomic Aquatics retailers.
BladeFins are designed as a “paddle” fin concept popular with divers who prefer a powerful swimming style to sprint through the water in the most demanding conditions. The addition of BladeFins diversifies the Atomic fin family and complements its well-established, top selling SplitFins™ product line. These two distinct Atomic fin designs offer divers a choice of fins best suited to their personal swimming style.
Atomic BladeFins differ significantly from conventional paddle fin designs by uniquely combining two frame structures that work in tandem to maximize kicking power. A “Power-Loop Monocoque” engineering structure is paired with a specially-designed “Frame Rail” design to give divers more power and thrust to move efficiently through the water with every kick.
“Single-shell Monocoque engineering is often utilized in aircraft and Indy race car designs,” explains Dean Garraffa, Atomic Aquatics co-founder and President of Huish Outdoors Dive and Watersports group.
“When you use this technology in a diving fin, every part of the kicking motion is optimized. The foot pocket Power Plate and Power Rail work in tandem while vertical stabilizers at the tip of the fin helps channel and control the water down the blade for an exceptionally efficient performance,” Garraffa stated.
According to Garraffa, the BladeFin has been in development for several years and follows the Atomic product design philosophy of only introducing products that deliver superior performance for divers. Like all Atomic Aquatics products, BladeFins feature a distinctive, appealing style. BladeFins are designed with sweeping curved accent lines, continuing Atomic’s “wicked” style evolution that started with its Venom mask and SV Series snorkels. BladeFins are available in 6 colors including blue, yellow, silver, red, pink and purple.

Fourth Element X Sea Shepherd
This year on Black Friday, fourth element announced their new partnership with Sea Shepherd, encouraging people to move away from mindless purchasing and to opt-in to supporting something powerful.
For 40 years Sea Shepherd, a leading non-profit organisation, has been patrolling the high seas with the sole mission to protect and conserve the world’s oceans and marine wildlife. They work to defend all marine wildlife, from whales and dolphins, to sharks and rays, to fish and krill, without exception.
Inspired by Sea Shepherd’s mission, fourth element have created a collection of fourth element X Sea Shepherd limited edition products for ocean lovers and protectors, with 15% of every sale going to the Sea Shepherd fund to help continue to drive conservation efforts globally.
“Working with Sea Shepherd gives fourth element the opportunity to join forces with one of the largest active conservation organisations in the world to try to catalyse change in people’s attitudes and behaviour. Fourth Element’s products are designed, developed and packaged with the intention of minimising our impact on the ocean environment, and with this partnership, we will be supporting the work of Sea Shepherd, in particular in their work on dealing with the twin threats of Ghost fishing nets and plastic pollution.”
