(Sportalsub.net / Exolung) – Leer en Español
Exolung is a new and unique approach to shallow water diving for recreational and utility purposes.
It is also enjoyable to use in the pool for training, or as a form of underwater gymnastics and yoga.
The idea was to create a simple extension to the usual ABC kit (fins, mask, snorkel), being simple, robust and affordable whilst not requiring a lot of maintenance or care, and absolutely no recharge or refill required.
It is lightweight (3,5kg) and compact (40x30x20cm pack size) making it super portable, flexible and functional.
There is a high degree of safety, due to the inflatable dive buoy, which the diver is attached to at all times.
There is no need for diving certification, though a basic knowledge of compressed air diving is required before use. This can be learned by attending a beginner diving course at your local centre.
HOW IT WORKS
Extending the legs = Exhalation
Fresh air is drawn down from the surface, water is displaced from the air bell -optionally connected with a fin kick for propulsion.
Retracting the legs = Inhalation
Water pressure puts air inside the air bell under ambient water pressure, it can then be inhaled effortlessly.
