Divesoft Demo Days in the USA: gain a deeper understanding of rebreathers

Published

on

Following the success of last year’s Demo Days, the Divesoft crew is planning another exciting event for divers to get in the water and demo rebreathers and other diving gadgets once again. Reserve the weekends of May 8th-9th in Cypress, California, and May 15th-16th in Redondo Beach, Washington and get ready for an incredible experience with fellow diving enthusiasts. The rebreather dives are free and there’s no need to book them in advance. Just head out West and dive on in!

DEMO Program

DEMO Days features two weekends of diving at two great locations. The first event will take place from May 8th-9th at Beach Cities SCUBA’s indoor pool in Cypress, California. Beach Cities Scuba is a well-established California diving brand so you can anticipate exceptional facilities and have the opportunity to check out promotional items and equipment too. Find out more about this event online

The second DEMO Days event will be held from May 15th-16th in Redondo Beach, Washington with Eight Diving, a community-focused shop that supports the local diving and technical diving community. The site is perfect for divers of all skill levels to explore. The shallow line along the beach offers divers the chance to see an array of sea creatures such as the Giant Pacific Octopus, ratfish, sea stars, and more. Visit the event’s Facebook page to learn more and express interest in the event.

Both DEMO weekends take place on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am – 5 pm with a lunch break. 

Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the engineering and technology behind Divesoft products, as introduced in a video by Joseph Jonathan Bosquez. Divers of various skill levels (an advanced diver certification with a minimum 50 dives is required) and backgrounds can get hands-on experience with the CCR Liberty, and test out various configurations including backmount and sidemount as well as the light and heavy versions. Expect to get up close and personal with everything from analyzers to computers to rebreathers and more. 

Equipment which can be tried:

Safety first

Just like last year, the Divesoft team will be following all proper guidelines to ensure the safety of all participants. Divesoft will have four complete units on hand which will allow them to clean and disinfect each unit after every dive using special Divesoft disinfection containing agents proven to kill Covid-19. Safety is Divesoft’s number one priority and as such, they will take all necessary precautions to avoid the risk of spreading infection and disease.

Divesoft DEMO Days are just around the corner so be sure to mark your calendars and plan your trip to the beautiful West Coast USA. With a stellar program and line-up planned, every diver can be sure to come away with something new whether that’s new equipment, improved skills, or awesome memories to last a lifetime. If you’re a diving enthusiast, you won’t want to miss out. Also, keep an eye out for new content from Divesoft as they will be vlogging and photographing both events.

Introducing Fourth Element’s new glove range

Published

on

More fit, more flex, more warmth

Fourth Element’s long-standing range of gloves have been a popular choice for divers since 2008. Redesigned using new materials and construction for even greater fit, flex and warmth, their new gloves offer even better performance than before.

You’ll find four new neoprene styles in the range; 3mm, 5mm, 5mm Kevlar and a 7mm mitt. Each has been carefully considered for purpose. The 5mm, 5mm kevlar and 7mm mitt all feature Hydrolock technology; taken from fourth element’s wetsuit seals, these provide an advanced seal at the wrist for minimal water ingress. The 3mm has been improved with addtional bartacks meaning you can cut it to your desired length and the seam wont be damaged. Most notably the carbon print on the backs of all the gloves have been removed and replaced on the palms with new Octogrip design for better flexibility which optimises comfort.

You can compare old to new on the product pages using the handy sliders fourth element have produced.

Published

on

Get ready for your next underwater adventure with Typhoon International’s new Pro Combo set of mask and snorkel.

The snorkel, with its semi-dry top and large bore tube provides plenty of air while minimising water ingress so it’s easy to control your breathing while keeping the water out using the purge valve.

The mask is manufactured from tempered safety glass and is wide and clear so you won’t miss any of the sights of the deep.  The silicone skirt makes the mask comfortable to wear too.

The Pro Combo mask and snorkel set live in a fully recyclable handy mesh bag when not in use, so they can carry on drying out from the inside. The set comes in a great choice of colours: blue, silver or yellow.  The set is available in both adult and junior sizes so there is one to fit every member of the family.

Whether for the family holiday or for keeping onboard a boat for when it is needed, Typhoon International’s Pro Combo is a perfect way to introduce you to the world of snorkelling and at an affordable price.
