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.

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.

SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova

Published

on

SCUBAPRO introduces the Seawing Supernova, a new diving fin designed to deliver maximum power when you need it.

Winner of the prestigious, internationally recognized Red Dot Award for product design, the Seawing Supernova is a remarkable step up from the Seawing Nova in performance, construction, fit and versatility, with an innovative blade shape that produces much more power, speed and manoeuvrability.

Power is key in a diving fin and the Seawing Supernova delivers. The fin’s proven Pivot Control Technology ensures the blade is pre-set in the 40º to 50º range, which is the optimal angle of attack for the blade and ideal for converting kicks into forward propulsion. This hinge system works in tandem with the blade’s unique flexible Auto-Adjust central panel which fine-tunes the angle of attack by counter-pivoting based on the strength of the kick. This provides a milder angle of attack for comfort when kicking gently, a more aggressive angle of attack when power kicking at full strength, and anything in between.  When it comes to frog and alternate kicks, new twin-tip winglets increase control and markedly improve manoeuvrability.

Made of premium Monprene® for maximum durability, the Seawing Supernova’s innovative two-piece design, with blade and foot pocket molded separately, disassembles easily for travel. Sold as an open heel set with foot pocket and blade pre-assembled, the Seawing Supernova’s open heel foot pocket features an upgraded heavy-duty bungee strap that allows for micro-adjustments to accommodate different boot types, and extended grip pads that provide an improved non-skid grip on wet surfaces.

The two-piece design also makes it possible to replace the standard open heel foot pocket with an optional full foot pocket for barefoot diving. Simply disassemble the fin’s Socket-Lock Connecting System, switch out the open heel foot pocket with a full foot pocket, reassemble and you’re ready to hit the water. The full foot pocket is also made of premium Monprene® and features a re-profiled heel-retention cup to prevent slipping and chafing.

A key fob-style multi-Tool is included for assembly and disassembly of the foot pocket and blade, along with a travel-friendly storage bag.

The new Seawing Supernova is the essential power fin for avid recreational and professional divers seeking maximum performance, speed and control in all diving conditions.
