Yesterday Brendon and Nigel went diving with their brand new Megadolon Rebreather!!
What is a Rebreather?
A rebreather is a type of breathing set that provides a breathing gas containing oxygen and recycled exhaled gas. This recycling reduces the volume of breathing gas used, making a rebreather lighter and more compact than an open-circuit breathing set for the same duration.
There are different types and brands of rebreathers, the one that Brendon and Nigel choose is MEGALODON REBREATHER.
The Megalodon CCR Rebreather is a fine piece of diving machine sporting double heavy-duty o-ring seals on all connections, a heavy-duty aluminum stack where the electronics and Co2 absorbent canister is living in. Individualism is the motto of the day when it comes how to carry the unit ranging from Transpack soft packs to slim or full size stainless steel, aluminum or ABS backplates or even Armadillo sidemount systems. The Automatic Diluent Valve ( ADV ) is a nice safety feature addition during busy events or runaway descents. The Heads Up Display ( HUD ) is a sweet dream to dive with enabling the diver to watch the Po2 at all times, even the busiest ones.
There is a variety of configuations possible with the Megalodon CCR Rebreather depending on personal preferences. The unit is standard back mounted with front mounted cordura counterlungs. The Megalodon CCR Rebreather does not have a standard way of configuration, but can be configured to the divers needs and preferences and to suit the diving environment such as recreational diving, cave diving, technical diving or wreck diving.
SOON SOME PICTURES!!
Our two candidates, James and Jin have just finished their IDC. After 10 days of hard work they finally finished!!First IDC of the year in Bunaken!!
Brendond and Tina organized a proper graduation party!!With few games and lots of drinking!!
Jin didn’t have time for DM party when he finished because he join the IDC straight away so we make all in one!!
First of all, just to warm up, Jin and James did their snorkel test with minor spitting. Great job!! After Jin demonstrated how to remove and replace a BCD. He is going to be a instructor so the standards are high!! Of course as a penalty for any mistake he had to drink.
To finish Jin sang a song which is part of Brendon’s Shark Guardian presentation.
He did have lots of fun, we hope that Jin and James also….
Jin left yesterday after almost one month with us, we wish the best of the luck on his diving career!![slideshow]
