OCTOber Meeting

RDC Monthly Meeting

 and swap meet*

PUTTING BUOYANCY TO WORK


The first key to success in underwater image making is to master buoyancy control to capture smooth footage and unique moments. Jennifer Idol will share insights and fresh footage from the field as she showcases photography from the expeditions she leads and her work on Maui with the Avelo System. The Avelo System is a lightweight solution that provides inherently stable neutral buoyancy. As a core team member of Avelo, Jennifer is one of three official representatives of Avelo permitted to share this insider information.


Jennifer Idol

Jennifer Idol, an expert in diving, design, and photography, connects people to the natural world. She showcased local waters in her book, An American Immersion, a quest in which she became the first woman to dive 50 states.

She's published in DIVERSCUBA Diving, and Alert Diver, was recognized as a PADIĀ® Ambassadiver (2017 and 2018), and is an Explorer’s Club Fellow National. Jennifer helps others experience wildlife encounters as an expedition leader with Big Fish Expeditions for trips that include whale sharks, sperm whales, humpback whales, and tiger sharks. 

A well done brief video further overviews Jennier's background and focus at

https://www.theunderwaterdesigner.com

Jennifer is a core team member and experimental diver for Avelo and has created the photography, videography, and all communications for this new dive system. The Avelo System is a revolutionary approach to scuba diving that consists of a Hydrotank and a Jetpack. The Hydrotank resolves some of the most challenging aspects of scuba diving: overall weight and the stability of neutral buoyancy. Avelo technology eliminates excess buoyancy associated with standard scuba, which reduces the overall weight divers must carry. This new scuba system will help us go farther with exploration.
