Underwater Shop By Fourth Element
Buying some useful stuff while decompressing from a deep dive? Sure, why not?
The British company Fourth Element, well-known forits apparel for divers, did just that at the five-day TEKCamp 2015 event in the UK introducing the first of a kind “Pop Down Shop”.
Sometimes cave divers use underwater habitats to hang out in while they decompress from deep dives so the guys at Fourth Element decided to utilize a similar structure to open an underwater shop selling t-shirts.
At TEKCamp, participants had five days’ worth of instruction, workshops and fun dives with many technical diving instructors representing PADI, SSI, RAID, TDI and other agencies, and were also able to try out new gear or hone technique. During the dive camp, participants got the opportunity to buy a T-shirt (wrapped in a waterproof bag, of course) in an underwater habitat about 19 feet/6 meters below the surface of Vobster Quay in the UK.
Unfortuntely there are not so many underwater stores, especially with Fourth Element stuff, but there are lots of online stores selling goods by this brand at DiveMarket. Among them there are lots of hoodies and sweaters, t-shirts, diving suits, thermal protection and many other products of the highest quality.
