GET 3D SCANNED
AT VOBSTER QUAY
POSTED: 09th July 2016

In the market for a new drysuit? TEKCamp sponsor Fourth Element will be setting up camp all next week to showcase its full range of expedition-level drysuits and undersuits.

We're particularly excited to reveal that they'll be setting up their unique BIOMAP.3D scanner - a new imaging system designed to revolutionise the way drysuits are ordered and made. BIOMAP.3D uses full body scanning to create a 3D model of your body from which hundreds of accurate measurements can be taken before determining what size suit you need, or, if made to measure is required, to create a unique pattern for your suit.

Even if you're not signed up for TEKCamp, why not pop along to Vobster Quay next week and get yourself scanned? Once Fourth Element have your 3D scanned measurements on file, you can then order your Argonaut 2.0 drysuit at your leisure.

Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre with John Kendall and 2 others.

FREE HUMAN FACTORS
MICRO COURSE
POSTED: 04th July 2016

Why do accidents happen amongst otherwise very competent and experienced divers? More often than not, so called 'human factors' play a key role in the onset of most incidents. But how do we recognise such behaviours and avoid their effect?

Thanks to The Human Factors Academy, attendees to TEKCamp 2016 at Vobster Quay will receive access to a FREE Human Factors Skills in Diving online micro course. Worth 69, this new course launches today and TEKCamp attendees will be some of the very first to experience its wide reaching benefits.

This short course equips participants with the knowledge and understanding about how to improve their diving. This 9-part micro-class introduces divers to the key topics from the two-day Human Factors Skills in Diving course, and contains over 2.5 hours of training via narrated presentations, practical exercises, and a case study reviews. You'll learn how to recognise behaviours within yourself and others that can contribute to the onset of an incident and develop skills to mitigate their effect.

For more information on Human Factors, visit [WEBLINK]


LET THERE BE
FINN LIGHT!
POSTED: 01st July 2016

A decent primary light is so much more to a technical diver than a simple source of illumination. Tech divers use them to communicate and maintain team contact so it's essential that the torch you choose is up to the job.

This year we're thrilled to offer TEKCamp attendees the opportunity to win a simply superb Finn Light 2000 torch from Finnsub UK (distributed in the UK by the good folk at Suunto Diving UK). Worth over 500, this ultra-bright primary torch offers 2000 lumens of light output with a battery pack that delivers 2.5 hours of burn time at full power - all in a convenient, hand held package without the need for a separate battery pack. The torch offers three power modes - at its lowest power setting (200 lumens), it'll merrily produce light for 24 hours!

Want to brighten your day by winning this beauty? All you have to do is attend TEKCamp and you'll automatically be entered into the prize draw - book now by calling 01373 814666.

TRAIN WITH THE
CAVE ELITE
POSTED: 16th June 2016

Learning to cave dive opens up a whole new world of exploration filled with natural wonders just waiting to be discovered. From the breathtaking cenotes of Mexico to the karst systems of Florida, cave diving lets you visit places very few people will ever get to see!

At TEKCamp 2016, we're proud to feature some of the world's top cave instructors and explorers amongst our ranks. All are accomplished cave divers in their own right, many actively involved in cutting-edge cave projects that push the boundaries of human exploration. Even if you're not sure whether cave diving is right for you, training with our team of cave gurus is a great opportunity to get advice, answer a few burning cave questions and - of course - learn a few fundamental cave skills.

Want to start your cave diving adventure? The darkness beckons so sign up for TEKCamp today! Call us on 01373 814666 now. For more information, visit our website at [WEBLINK]

TWIN UP THIS
SUMMER WITH APEKS
POSTED: 10th June 2016

Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre with Catherine Bates and 2 others.

Twinsets aren't just for techies - most divers will appreciate the enhanced safety and self-sufficiency that they provide. Plus, of course, you get twice as much gas as your single tank buddies which is always nice :-)

The swanky new Apeks twinset features the popular Apeks valve system which uses a robust double o-ring sealed manifold and silky-smooth valves fitted with metallic reinforced, soft grip and shock resistant hand-wheels. The ensemble is made complete with a set of very solid chunky marine-grade wide stainless steel bands. We can supply them fully assembled and stickered up for oxygen service.

The new Apeks twinset is available direct from Vobster Quay in three different sizes - 2 x 7 litre, 2 x 12 x litre and, for the gas hogs, 2 x 15 litre. The popular 2 x 12 litre set costs 500.00 - buy yours online at [WEBLINK]
