2012 is ‘The Year Of The Rebreather’
“2012 is definitely the year of the rebreather revolution and RF3 is the rebreather event to be at in 2012. There’s no way I’m missing this! Divers are coming to the Orlando conference from every corner of the world, to listen to the latest developments and most up to date information on rebreather diving. As the specialized rebreather operator in the Red Sea, there is no better opportunity for us to present our services to those divers looking for dedicated and exclusive rebreather diving in one of the best diving spots of the world.
Why do I consider 2012 to be ‘the year of the rebreather’? Until recently rebreathers were considered a piece of technical equipment for experienced divers. Today rebreather technology has developed to a level where new divers can now dive safely on a rebreather, ie the Poseidon Discovery MK-VI.
Before manufactures were trying to make their units as advanced as possible for deep trimix and cave diving. Now they are looking to make their units as simple, foolproof and safe as possible. This will mean there will be big changes in the rebreather world and this is probably the reason that 2012 is the year of RF3 too! We are in for a very exciting time.
I’m looking forward to the networking, seeing good friends and making new business contacts. However being a passionate rebreather diver I’m also hoping to find new opportunities to explore new places around the world with my rebreather.
I also want to know everything the manufactures are planning and the new stuff coming out. That promises to be very exciting. And personally as a rebreather diver I want to learn about all the latest upgrades I can put onto my rebreather for my own deep diving and expeditions. RF3 is going to be an excellent place to source new places, centres, boats and destinations to dive.
With rebreather diving becomes more mainstream, more dive centres, instructors and professionals are going to be involved with this aspect of diving. It will all make it far easier to take your breather on holiday with you. The logistics will be sorted and there will be breather friendly facilities in far-flung places with sorb, cylinders and oxygen fills etc.
With so many topics being presented by many renowned experts in their fields I know this is going to be something special. There are going to be great presentations by DAN, (Thermal Physiology, OC and CCR Fatalities, and Coastguard Investigations). And I’m also looking forward to the Rebreathing Testing, Scrubber Technology and CO2 monitoring talks.”
