Aegean EcoRun Project
12 Sept 2013 , our "EcoRun Aegean project" was held , with destination Santorini, with our new specialized vessel. entirely made of carbon fiber. The purpose of the project was to certify the vessel's ability to travel with extremely low fuel consumption and minimal pollutants.
Trygons published a series of tutorial videos. Now you can see how to customize your speargun handle, change fins footpockets, setup your fluidgoggles and more! These videos is the start of a 8 scheduled video series, to be ready before next summer... enjoy!
next generation counterbalast system design
When it comes to safety, we at Trygons do not cut back at all. Three years ago, we designed, made and used a totally new concept in free-diving safety technology. Back then, we promised, and accomplished to organize a 214meter free-dive safer than a normal constants dive! A sonar, 2 powerful electric motors, 3 alternative lifting procedures, plus extreme sled speed, where all invented by Trygons for that purpose. At a breathless 4'20'', back then, everybody realized that our favorite sport can be pushed a lot deeper!
Last year, Trygons organized a new "skandalopetra" freediving world record.
It was a very easy 107meter dive for Herbert. Although everything went ok, we where a bit disappointed with the footage. So, this year we came back, and installed a video camera on the stone! The actual footage will take some months to edit and will probably be out around September. But, Trygons has kept some testing footage, done with Italian Trygons diver Tomasso Buglioni:
Of course our new heavy duty 150m housing with Sony tx-7 was used.
Planing this filming goes back 2 years, while filming movie " bejond limits". We where wondering how good can a spearfishing scene be filmed.
And , on the 26th of June, it all happen within 30sec! Herbert, with a trygons dmf130R hosting an onboard HD aluminium trygons housing. Alexander Abela with a Subal-Cannon eos5 MKII from above.
They got the 60sec footage that every diver speaks about! More than 1000 tunas , sized from 60 to 400kgr, circling Herbert in the middle of the Agean Sea in Greece! Special thanks to the "tuna tracker" Bagelis Moundrianakis.
