In Water Support
Over the past few year we have seen a marked increase in extreme races that have off-road obstacle and mud run events. These events are not unfamiliar to the ex-forces owner of the Divestyle. These days they are also know as extreme obstacle course races such a tough mudder, spartanrace, runner and tough guy. Many of these races now have water features, this is where Divestyle excel and have the know how and abilities to make your event go without a hitch.
We have a huge amount of experience in providing water safety teams to extreme events that have a water obstacle as part of their genetic makeup. It can be a natural water body, swimming pool, open water swimming lake or a man made water pit, each with their own specific requirements but here at DiveStyle we have the team that can cover it.
Our teams can operate UK-wide ensuring the same professional service is provided regardless of where the event is based in the country. Our in water teams are well versed in life guarding and all in water technicians are all trained in Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver Techniques.
We are able to provide any event with in water support and provide the safety and support needed to make an event progress smoothy.
Well versed with HSE regulations, fully insured and access to a large dive team we can provide in water or consultancy services at the drop of a hat.
In Water Searches & Dive Surveys
Every body of water poses a different set of requirements when introducing it into an extreme event. Trying to establish if that water body is suitable for an event can be an organisers worst nightmare!
Many occasions require an in water survey to determine if that body of water is both safe and suitable for use as part of your obstacle course. This is where DiveStyle are ready to help. We have the dive team and equipment to safely plan and execute a dive survey on your behalf. We can provide both written and video reports on the condition of the water and any in water obstacles that we feel need to be addressed in order to make the water safe for you race participants.
Our instructional team include ex-service divers, ex-police search and rescue divers and ex-commercial divers, all extremely well versed in surveying and locating and potential in water hazards. Depending on the hazard we will also be able to assist or arrange the removal of that hazard through our network of connections.
Film, TV and Commercials
Working and filming underwater has been around for since the dawn of cinematography. Filming in the underwater enviroment can be an exiting, rewarding, frustrating but worth every challenge along the way for the film maker to pursue his art, to capture that scene clinching shot.
Filming underwater requires specialist equipment but most of all requires highly trained, reliable safety divers that can allow you to get the job done as safely as possible, with minimum fuss. without safety divers who posses the relevant skills and experience, the film producer, event organiser and his cameramen cannot get the job done. Not having safety divers can end up in a unproductive exercise, which in turn can become a costly and time consuming event. Health and Safety and Legal issues can be a minefield for those not dealing with them on a day to day basis and good quality safety divers are a must!
