Atomic X1 Blade Fin

This new fin from Atomic Aquatics combines a solid internal frame with a firmer, shorter blade, aimed at maximising kicking power and raw thrust.

The blade’s monocoque structure is connected to low-profile rails to help in the transfer of power from leg and foot, and the fins are said to lend themselves to alternative finning styles such as flutter, scissors, backwards and frog-kicks. The X1 Blade comes in black, red, blue, yellow and silver in sizes S, M, L and XL, and costs £88.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
