Going in Deep: Diving with Anxiety

Mental health has really come to the forefront of conversations in recent years. It’s amazing to now see that it is being discussed openly, but there is still work to be done. This isn’t a sob story or a cry for attention, this is just the truth and my experience with it and how diving has helped.

31 Days Wild Swimming

Throughout July, Charlie Young, a Marine Scientist and Presenter, along with her friend, Wildlife Camera Op. Ben Harris completed a personal challenge of swimming in a wild body of water every day.

AimZero – Leave No Footprint

AimZero is the world's first project that aims to dive, explore and clean the oceans with zero emissions. Together with premium brands such as XShore, Polestar, Cake, Fourth Element and Awake, the project aim is to leave a zero carbon footprint during their environmental projects.

Women on a mission

Here at fourth element we are lucky to be based in Cornwall, UK, with great diving spots and not totally freezing waters, so this weekend we celebrated Padi Women’s Dive Day with a dip in the ocean (socially distant, of course!).
