Dr Olivetti Firth, Diving Shaman

Diving was invented in 1974. Within minutes diving pestilence evolved. Thus Dr Oli Firth had to be built out of the finest elements known to humanity. Now he is here to answer all your diving medical queries. So get on it or we'll have to deconstruct him again and use his bits to build a ferocious squirrel. No one wants that.

Oyster Diving Host First Ever Underwater Summer Games in London

On the 14thJuly, Oyster Divingheld the first ever Underwater Summer Games; a series of Olympic style sports for scuba divers at The Marshall Street Leisure Centre in Soho, London to raise money for Excellent Development and The Scuba Trust.

The championships included events such as the Underwater Discuss, 60 Metre Sprint with No Fins, 60 Metre Sprint with Fins, Fastest Underwater Equipment Exchange in pairs, Fastest Tired Diver Tow, which team could make a 3 litre cylinder last the longest, and fastest to set up their scuba equipment.

Mark Murphy, from Oyster Diving said: “When we came up with the idea of the Underwater Summer Games we really wanted to start an annual event that could grow and generate some money for two really worthwhile charities. We couldn’t have envisaged how much fun that the participants have had at the same time though, and we are very excited about next years event already.”

The event was hosted by ‘Dancing on Ice’ winner Vanessa Bauer who is also a keen scuba diver. Vanessa told us “I am really happy to be supporting the Underwater Summer Games as it is for two great causes. As well as dancing on ice, one of my other passions is scuba diving, so this event is close to my heart. Having it in Central London makes it easy for divers to reach and go out and celebrate their victories afterwards. Oyster Diving have done a great job putting this event together and I hope that this will be the first of many annual events”.

A message from Ed

Let me start by introducing myself, I am Tanked Up Magazine's New Editor in Chief and I have chosen to start with a bang: Issue 24, the H*Bomb issue.

I am a diver, nothing fancy, and I love diving in the UK. I have dedicated my career to doing so since completing my porridge in the tropics and realising I dislike donning wetsuits to that extreme.

Juliet wrote in the first issue of TU "An old scuba diver friend once commented that mainstream diving magazines worldwide have never really changed in the last 20 years. But divers have." This to me still rings true. I love to celebrate cool and relevant diving content and I am so excited to have the opportunity to grow this mag from the sea bed upwards.

In this issue we focus on the Docs getting beasted by Kristin the Scuba Personal Trainer, we hear from DCI survivors with their accounts of being bent abroad. In addition to these reads, Scuba Trust take us on an inspirational journey to the Cenotes with their amazing team of instructors. The man himself, the incredible Paul Rose takes us on a gripping journey of his experience dealing with his health and diving while our trip contributors continue to encourage underwater adventures in some dreamy locations, and much more.

I would like to extend a huge thank you and a large appreciation to all of the entrants that took part in the Front Cover Competition. We were overwhelmed by the number of entries and it was a task and a half having to decide between them all. They are all winners in my eyes as advocates of our precious waters.

Special well done to watery photo winner Daniel Lawrence, who made the front page with his entry of his love, the mermaid with red hair, what a beautiful moment to capture and the TU team thank you for sharing this with our readers.

So here goes, pre dive safety checks done, see you at the bottom.

Ed.

And so: Upload your Club Night photos and the good photographs you've taken in the deep. Even take a step on your journalistic career and write up your last dive trip. Whatever sort of diver you are, from a violent sociopath like Tyson the triggerfish to a sexually-retarded instructor like Brad, enjoy this website and get hold of a copy of Tanked Up Magazine.
