WIN! WIN! WIN! An Ocean Reef Full-face Mask User Course
Ever wondered what it’s like diving a full-face mask? They’re really comfortable (breathe through your nose, no jaw fatigue, dive cold water), they give you a wide field-of-view and you can even add comms units to talk with your buddy and/or the surface.
Our lucky winner will learn about the Ocean Reef system of integrated diving mask and comms, and try it out in the comfort of Sea & Sea’s heated, indoor swimming pool.
Sea & Sea, UK distributor of Ocean Reef products, will be hosting the one-day course at Paignton, Devon.

    T-Rex Dive Knife .....Aquatec

    T-Rex Dive Knife .....Aquatec The T-Rex dive knife is the next generation low-profile silhouetted type dive knife.

    The dive knife is a single blade design with a very ergonomic handle directly molded into the blade. This knife feels so natural in your hand that it will feel like a natural extension of your body.

    The silhouetted one-piece dive/activity knife is getting more and more popular. The advantages of this type of one-piece knife blade is its thin profile and less weight to make it more portable, but the drawback is that it is difficult and awkward to hold. The T-Rex Dive/Activity Knife has solved this problem by having an ergonomically shaped handle with a thin plastic insert to give the handle a very comfortable feel. more...
