World Record Holders

In 2009, Scuba Santas once again beat their own world record with 158 divers. This was not beaten in 2010 due to several reasons (remember all that snow?), with our move to the NDAC numbers were also smaller in 2011 but we’re hoping now that news has gotten around numbers will start climbing again for the 2012 event. We hope you can join us and be part of what many divers refer to as “the best dive of the year”.


Your Support is Helping Put an End to Shark Finning!



Your Support is Helping Put an End to Shark Finning!

Donate Today to Fuel the Next Critical Battle for Sharks at CITES 2013 

Dear DiveStyle Customer,

You did it! The European Parliament finally voted to close the loopholes in the European Union (EU) shark finning ban. This is the result of six years of diligent work with Shark Alliance partners, driven by your support.

What does it mean?
Members of the European Parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of the proposal to impose the best practice for finning ban enforcement: a prohibition on removing shark fins at sea. From now on, sharks caught by EU vessels anywhere in the world must be landed with their fins naturally attached. The EU banned finning in 2003, but left in a loophole where “special fishing permits” allowing shark fins and bodies to be landed separately made a mockery of the ban. This vote means that from now on, it’s “FINS ON With NO Exceptions”!

Why does it matter?
The EU shark finning ban was one of the weakest in the world, yet the EU is one of the largest exporters of shark fins to Asia. With a “fins naturally attached policy” in place, the EU, given the global scale of its fisheries and the international influence of its shark management policies, is in a better position to push for game changing shark conservation measures. It can push policies at an international level for fins on with no exceptions.

What’s next?
We must ensure the complete ban on shark finning is implemented while focusing on securing International trade safeguards for vulnerable shark and ray species under CITES. At the next meeting of countries who are members to CITES in March 2013, we will again be the voice and conscience of divers to demand that sharks and rays receive trade protections they desperately need. This is a key victory in an ongoing battle. We continue to fight to save sharks from extinction and need your support more than ever!

Stay tuned for upcoming calls to action and thank you for your help to protect vulnerable and endangered species.

For the Ocean,

Alex Earl
Executive Director, Project AWARE Foundation

Paul Rose – Defined By Diving

Paul Rose presents defined by diving at DiveStyle, October 8th 2012.

The beginning of autumn is not usually a thing to look forward to. The nights get longer, the days shorter and the weather starts to turn into that drizzly rain, the kind of rain that my mother use to say ‘soaks you to the skin’, to this day I am still not sure what that actually meant but then parents are great at giving those kind of statements.

Now, this autumn day was not going to be the same any any other autumn day, this autumn day was different because we had Paul Rose coming to give one of his superb presentations!

It had taken months of hard work and pestering (some may say the pestering was starting to board on stalking) but the hard work and constant calls had paid off. I had managed to get a slot in Paul’s extremely busy diary and secured him for that evening.

We also had Richard Cullen from Deptherapy come along as he would be giving an overview of the work that Deptherapy is doing, Paul is a great fan of Deptherapy so we charged a small entrance fee for the evening with all monies going to Deptherapy. This was further boosted by Richard Howes from Oceanic as he provided a Oceanic GEO 2.0 dive computer as a prize that we held a secret auction for.

A quick trip to Reading station to pick up Paul and then back to the Wokingham Waterside  Centre so Paul could do the meet and great before launching into his presentation.

Well to say the room filled with energy would be an understatement, he was like a whirlwind!

The presentation was fast paced, full of great stories, passion and superb pictures from some of the amazing places that he has visited during his diving and expedition carear.

Imagine taking a handful of popping candy (you may remember it as space dust), putting the whole lot in your mouth and taking a good drink of water. The inevitable explosion was the same as the energy that Paul put into his presentation.

To say he has had a colourful diving carear would be an understatement.

From the frozen poles as base commander in charge of all of the science support logistics, diving under icebergs, diving all over the world while filming the Oceans series to amazing diving in the UK with Britain’s Secret seas.

It was amazing to listen to what in any other environment would be a simple task can become a real concern, such as anchoring your vessel.

The images that Paul presented were extremely interesting, we saw a 2000 year old mummified seal , the bottom of lake Geneva and a black hole (not the one is space) so called because of the colour of the water.

We were given a great insight on how just un-glamorous the world of journalism and TV can actually be. Behind the scenes it is not all glitz and glamour and some of the working conditions can be challenging to say the least.

What really did come through during the presentation is that after all these years the passion for diving is still as strong. The long days, repetitive takes on set, the harsh weather, long journeys and time away for home has done nothing to dampen his inner diving spirit.

By the end of the presentation the room was aglow with both admiration of Paul and what he has achieved, curiosity on the topic of science support and regenerated enthusiasm for diving. I have a feeling there may be a few more science support applications happening in the near future.

I would love to put on another presentation by Paul but this tiem see if we could raise enough money to send at least 2 injured soldiers onto the Deptherapy program.

This time round me managed to raise £365, which is not bad for an attendance of 25 people.

Paul has many interesting projects coming in the near future so keep your eyes peeled as if they are as half as good as his past projects they will be well worth watching.
