Typhoon International has strengthened its managerial team by appointing Kevin Coulthard as Managing Director.

Founded over 70 years ago, Typhoon manufactures and supplies high quality marine products and is one of the world’s largest drysuit manufacturers. Typhoon’s products are designed specifically for its key leisure markets of sailing, diving, paddlesports, surfing and general watersports.

Joining Typhoon with a wealth of operational and manufacturing experience from across various industries, Kevin will be responsible for maintaining Typhoon’s position as one of the leading manufacturers in the marine industry, building on the company’s seven decades of excellence in watersports equipment and apparel design and manufacture.

“As Typhoon’s new Managing Director, I am excited about leading a business that has such a long-term heritage within the marine industry, with supreme quality products across the military, commercial, and leisure sectors of the market,” says Kevin.

“I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to lead a committed and dedicated work force, and my direction is to ensure the longevity of Typhoon for decades to come, with our customers at the centre of everything we do, knowing they rely on our products to protect and safeguard them from extreme environments.”

Having started his new role mid-September 2023, Kevin will be on the Typhoon stand (05.241) at this year’s Metstrade (15-17 November 2023), where he is looking forward to meeting industry colleagues and members of the press.

Published

on

Nomad Ray

Dive Rite was founded in 1984 by technical divers and cave explorers with the goal to make the very best scuba diving equipment available. Gear that can be trusted on the most extreme dives and exceed expectations in any environment: reef, wreck, cave, or quarry.

The Nomad Ray is the product of years of design, development, field testing, and feedback from some of the world’s leading sidemount divers and instructors.

The Nomad Ray is available in black, blue, OD green, pink, or red. If you happen to find yourself in a tight spot, the Ray’s abrasion-resistant “skid plate” will have your back: providing wear protection exactly where it’s needed the most. SuperFabric® is a fast drying, highly durable, and slash-resistant material. The Nomad Ray Sidemount System is ready to perform in the toughest diving environments.

Nomad Ray

The Nomad Ray can be easily adjusted to comfortably fit all body types. The independently adjustable harness design can be quickly set up for any diver. Shoulder and waist webbing can be replaced independently if damaged or trimmed too short. The Nomad Ray uses a fast, tool-free bungee length adjustment system. Simply pull to the desired length, tie a single overhand knot, and tuck the excess into the integrated sleeve. A quick-adjust belly band with a custom moulded bungee hook keeps the wing wrapped snugly around the diver’s body.

Nomad Ray

A zipper on the inside of the Nomad Ray wing allows for access to three integrated weight pockets capable of holding up to five pounds of each of hard or soft weight.
