Agile

On a recent snorkeling vacation, I realised that trying to snorkel with the use of a Diver Propulsion Vehicle meant a lot of drag force for the diver. Such a drag force makes using a snorkel very uncomfortable, so to solve this problem, I created this hydrodynamic snorkel specifically designed for better movement underwater.

DPV - diver propolsion vehicle

The snorkel connects to the back strip of the diving mask and flows vertically to the diver’s head, thus avoiding any water drag. A 20mm hose transports air directly to the diver, and can be adjusted for use on either the left or the right.

Shapes & Lines

The shape of the Agile was inspired by underwater lines and curves, with a focus on hydrodynamic movement and flow.
