#TBT – Dive Girl; Get Off On Your Kit!

About a million years ago, to be precise December 1998, a new diving magazine was launched in the UK called 'Dive Girl'. It had a short life, but it is still remembered with affection by some divers. I didn't know it at the time, but writing an article in the debut edition would help launch my writing and PR career in scuba and technical diving.

This is the first piece I wrote. I could write about any piece of diving equipment I liked. I chose my Aquion Pro Harlequin drysuit. It had taken me three years of hard saving to get this suit, and when it arrived, I was that excited, I almost slept in it on the first night. I can get very attached to my diving equipment. Whilst I don't dive this suit any more, it still makes me smile every time I open the garage door.

Sixteen years on, it is also great to see the other lady featured on this page, Mary Tetley, is likewise still involved with scuba diving too. Today Mary is the CEO of the British Sub Aqua Club.

Whites Drysuits Now Aqua Lung Dry Wear


Anglesey ScubaFest.2014, Garry Dallas, Simply Sidemount, Jason Brown, Rosemary E Lunn, Roz Lunn, The Underwater Marketing Company, Fusion Drysuit, Dean Martin, Bardo Photographic,In Spring 2010 Aqua Lung purchased Whites Manufacturing; a company that specialises in the development and manufacture of Diving Drysuits. Whites Drysuits are dived by recreational, military, public safety, and commercial divers around the world.

One of their most popular suits is the patented Whites Fusion Drysuit. The unique design of this suit has changed the way that divers view the ‘drysuit’. It offers them comfort and mobility in a lightweight package, that is easy to don and doff.

Aqua Lung has just announced that starting from today (1st October 2014) all drysuits, undergarments, associated drysuit accessories that are produced by Whites Manufacturing, and supplied through Aqua Lung dealers will be branded Aqua Lung.
