DIVE 2017: A Great Success for Diving

Published

on

If this weekend’s DIVE 2017 is any indication of the popularity of scuba diving then it’s safe to say that diving is most definitely on the up! The Scubaverse team is just back from a fantastic weekend at the NEC in Birmingham. The show was packed out with people both days and we really enjoyed meeting Scubaverse subscribers and visitors, as well as catching up with old friends in the industry… and making many new ones!

Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing you video highlights of all the latest product launches, show presentations, interviews with well-known scuba faces and news from DIVE 2017. We really hope you enjoyed the event and if you didn’t go this year, you really did miss out.

Be sure to put DIVE 2018 in your diary – we will see you on the 27 & 28 October 2018!

Dream Dive Locker Build Out. Part I: Demolition (Watch Video)

Published

on

It’s finally here! Time to start building the greatest dive locker the world has ever seen! Part I: Demolition! #dreamdivelocker

This is the first of a series of videos showing the evolution of building out my dream dive locker. My dream dive locker needs to be dive gear drying and storage, dry storage, workshop, office, editing suite, You Tube studio and classroom. That’s a lot of functions for a small space!

The first step is planning out the space and demolishing the laminate flooring. Then I taped up the walls to get a feel for the space. We have a lot of work to do!

But finally we will have a purpose built space to house all of our dive equipment! Subscribe to our channel to follow our progress! 

Thanks for watching, Team!
