Game-changing underwater breather gets Kickstarted

07 June 2017

The dream of being able to breathe underwater without heavy equipment is a step closer with new portable and lightweight breathing apparatus.

The Scorkl is a unique and compact breathing device enabling a user to breathe freely underwater for up to 10 minutes. The device can then be easily refilled on the spot with a specially designed hand pump. 

Scorkl creator David Hallamore said his idea was to create a simpler way for everyone to enjoy exploring underwater. 

“This is a game-changer for anyone who loves the water, whether they’re a licenced scuba diver, recreational snorkeler, spearfishing and freediving enthusiast or boat-owner,” said Mr Hallamore. “Scorkl opens up a whole new world of underwater adventures at a fraction of the cost and hassle of traditional diving equipment.” 

A Kickstarter campaign has been launched, with a funding goal of $30,000. A Scorkl can be purchased for $269 AUD ($199 USD/£154) during the Kickstarter launch at a steep discount to the future retail price. Mr Hallamore said he hoped the Scorkl would be the first item among a wider product range. 

“We hope to build a whole community of “Scorklers” - watermen and waterwomen - who truly know what it’s like to swim the oceans like a fish,” said Mr Hallamore.
