    We saw the new XTX200 for the first time at the Dive Show in Birmingham, and a very nice piece of kit it looks as well. But is this just a new front cover? A revamp of the old 200? Or are we in for a real treat and is this something entirely new?

    I've been lucky enough this year to attend DEMA in Las Vegas and I headed straight over the Apeks/ Aqualung stand to have a chat with the guys about the new reg.

    Worldwide Dive and Sail’s Siren Fleet is once again offering a superb opportunity for divers and non-divers to join their “Families-Only Liveaboard Safaris”; dedicated to families who, up until now, may have been put off joining a liveaboard as their needs have not been met.

    DiveLife was started in 2001 whilst Brett Thorpe, the owner, was arranging trips and needed somewhere to put pictures and videos for people to view. Remember, Facebook and forums didn't exist then. When Brett decided to move on and live in Lancashire he decided that the area lacked a comprehensive diving facility and set out to create one.

    With a philosophy of never saying no, the business grew over the following three years until new premises were needed. The current 5000sq ft premises were occupied on 9th September 2009 and DiveLife's growth has continued ever since, even given the tough economic times.

    DiveLife provides equipment from 172 manufacturers from all over the globe. We are recognised a both recreational and technical specialists with diverse areas such as rebreathers, technical cave and photo video specialists working with and for DiveLife, we can truly offer a one stop shop.

    Visitors to this year’s Birmingham Dive Show will find things done a little differently to previous shows. By popular demand over recent years there have been more interactive experiences within the hall itself, and at DIVE 2012 this process will be taken a step further with the introduction of the DIVER Stage. This will allow many of the main guest-speaker presentations to take place closer to the exhibition space.

    Combine these talks with what promises to be a packed programme of presentations in the PhotoZone and the PADI Village, and breath-hold, rebreather and entry-level experiences in the two pools, and this year’s Show promises to be livelier than ever.
    And don’t forget that, once you’ve bought your ticket, all the attractions at DIVE 2012 are free!

    The Orkney Islands offer some of the best diving in the British Isles. From the world famous Scapa Flow wrecks to some of the most scenic diving in the world, the Orkneys have the variety to suit everyone’s taste and experience. One of the best ways to get the most out of your time is to use a liveaboard – that way you don’t have to return to Stromness every evening but can relax in comfort and move from dive site to dive site.

    No doubt most of us have, at one time or another, cast a worried glance at one of our larger diving brethren and wondered how on earth they manage to kit up, let alone dive safely. It’s certainly one of the commoner comments made to me in the consulting room. There are many reasons that diving attracts those of, ah, more expansive girth, not least the temporary removal of gravitational pull on their abdomen. However, one of the consequences of obesity is heart disease, which is the third most common cause of death whilst diving. In this article I want to highlight a few aspects of this often overlooked risk factor in diving accidents.

    You look at the club equipment store, where ever that may be and despair! You are not alone, I too have stared at a rusty locker filled with diving cast offs that should have been given a decent send off and retired years ago. BUT because funds are tight it is so hard to get decent kit to train trainees. In many cases this means that trainees are told they need their own kit for open water dives and many can find this off putting as it's a big single purchase. It's a constant club dilemma that many of you are familiar with.

    Why ? Cos it just is!!!! And for around £200 for a first and second stage and £245 for a full set it's top value as well.

    In simple straight forward terms you are not worthy! This reg (well maybe not this actual one - but maybe it's siblings, parents or grandparents) has been places in the diving world that most of us can only dream about. In regulator terms we are talking "Veni, vidi, vici," - As Julius Cesear would say - "been there, seen it, dived it!"

    Divers Warehouse was originally founded by John Womack from Otter Watersports in 1987. Divers Warehouse was born due to Customers requesting Dive kit whilst purchasing Otter drysuirs. Customers effectively wanted a one-stop shop where they could buy everything under one roof, and to this day Customers still benfit from this concept.

    A Basic guide to the Apeks Range of Backplates/Wings/Harnesses.

    You've probably been diving for a while, chances are you've dived and learnt to dive in a conventional jacket style BCD - unless you are old like me and learnt in an ABLJ - but we just aren't going there - the memories are to be frank too unpleasant!. Jacket style BCD's are great and were a vast and HUGE (let me reemphasise the 'HUGE' there) leap forward on what was already on the market. They are comfortable in the main, they are easy to get on and off, sizing isn't an issue, most brands come in a good range of sizes. The design's in general put the diver in a vertical position at the surface which is comforting, it's always nice to see what's coming to get you.
