JOIN US THIS SATURDAY FOR
A FREE FIREWORKS DISPLAY
POSTED: 01st November 2017

Looking for a fun night out for you and your family? Why not join us for a fantastic 'swim + dive' evening with a FREE fireworks display this Saturday!

From 19:15 onwards, we'll be filling the skies above the lake with enough bangs, pops and whistles to scare even the hardiest of pets (so please leave them at home, folks!). Best of all, the fireworks display is COMPLETELY FREE so why not bring along the family? Don't forget the sparklers or the kids will be revolting!

With swimming and diving available until 18:00 (standard entry fee payable), there's plenty of time for swimmers and divers to grab a cheeky dip before joining the family for an evening of wonderful fireworks! Our onsite catering will be serving up hot and tasty treats whilst an onsite bar will be offering something a little more bracing for those that fancy keeping the chills off with a tipple or two.

More details over at the Facebook event page here - [WEBLINK]



SUUNTO LAUNCHES NEW
EON CORE COMPUTER
POSTED: 24th October 2017

We're just a little bit excited by the new Suunto EON Core. Launched to something of a fanfare at this weekend's Birmingham Dive Show, this new model packs all the same features as its big brother - the Suunto EON Steel - into a compact and lightweight case that is available in three different colours - white, black and lime green.

Of course the real headline stealer with this new model is that big, beautiful full colour screen which is identical in size and functionality to its more expensive brother. Features wise, the EON Core is no slouch either with full support for air, nitrox, gauge and even trimix and rebreather models (once activated for free via Suunto's DM5 application). It's even got a built in digital compass! The only real difference between the new Core and the more expensive Steel model is the depth rating - 80m rather than 150m - and a shorter 10 hour battery life.

Want to get your mitts on one of these beauties? Orders yours now via our online shop - [WEBLINK]



MAKE YOUR WEEKEND GO
WITH A BANG!
POSTED: 11th October 2017

Stuck for something to on Saturday 4th November? Why join us down at Vobster Quay for our annual celebration of nefarious individuals with pointy moustaches trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament!

We'll be filling the skies above the lake with enough bangs, pops and whistles to scare even the hardiest of pets (so please leave them at home, folks!). Best of all, the fireworks display is COMPLETELY FREE so why not bring along the family? Don't forget the sparklers or the kids will be revolting!

Fancy a cheeky swim or dive whilst you're on site? For the usual very reasonable entry fee, divers can take advantage of the late season night diving whilst swimmers can get in some laps - just make sure you're out of the water by 6pm or we'll fire off the rockets in your direction!

Our onsite catering will be serving up our usual range of tasty treats and we'll have a fully-licensed bar onsite serving a full range of alcoholic - and, for the designated drivers who drew the short straw - non-alcoholic beverages until 10pm.

There's no need to book - just mark yourself as 'GOING' on the Facebook event to help us get a better idea of numbers.

Fourth Element X Core test weekend. Took the X Core for a spin next to the skin under Arctic Extreme under an Otter Britannic on some RedBare Normoxic CCR skills sessions. Result? Completely toasty warm throughout, despite water temps down to 8 degrees. Now, those who know me know I'm not an automatic fan of electric heating - I still think Bob Dylan sold out. For those who think like me, the X Core is an excellent alternative to fancy electric trickery. It doesn't mean you have to do the full 'folk music and homebrew', although I do have a good batch of Mendip Bale Roller coming on. Cheers, Tim PS this isn't a photo of me...
