TekDeck is new Dive Show feature

A much-anticipated new feature at DIVE 2016 is TekDeck, an area designed to appeal not only to the growing body of existing technical divers but also to all those qualified leisure divers considering the next step in their evolution.

It may even interest divers who have no plans whatsoever to go technical, with presentations on useful topics such as recreational kit configuration and back-finning.

The TekDeck stage is located right beside the TekPool (pictured) so that divers are able to try out the latest rebreathers among other new items of kit.

TekDeck coordinator Mark Powell has lined up an impressive array of technical instructors with long experience, all happy to share their expertise.

Topics covered will include kit configuration (Hogarthian, recreational and others), rebreather maintenance, back-finning, line-laying, gradient factors, shutdown procedures – and the Inspiration, Sentinel and JJ CCRs.

The UK's biggest and most popular event for divers, DIVE 2016 will feature around 200 companies offering diving gear, holidays and services.

In addition to TekDeck and the TekPool, special attractions include a separate Try-Dive pool, the popular PhotoZone, the British Isles Experience, the Asia-Pacific Showcase and the Caribbean Village.

And for those with training as well as travel in mind, experts from the likes of PADI, BSAC, SSI and SAA will be offering guiding hands throughout the weekend.

There will also be a free-to-enter draw for all Show visitors to win an 18-day trip to the Philippines worth £8000.

DIVE 2016 opening times are 9.30-6.00 on Saturday 22 October and 9.30-5.00 on Sunday 23 October.

Ticket prices start at just £9.50 per person if booked in advance (a saving of £5 off the on-the-day price of £14.50).

Do you need to be fit to dive?

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

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?
