EASYBREATH SNORKELING MASK

Innovation designed by the Subea team, it's a surface-only mask, but with a built-in snorkel.

This mask stands out from the rest thanks to its shape and functionalities; with this mask, you breathe through your mouth “and” nose. What’s more, the mask has a large field of vision and an anti-fogging system. And all this without ever losing your snorkel, since it’s built into the mask! These strenghts are very popular with children (now, over the age of 6) and beginners put off by snorkels. Everything becomes easier when you give it a try and are able to breathe just as easily as when you’re on the surface!
There’s just one limit - you can’t dive with an Easybreath mask. Hence the benefit, after a while, of stepping up to a standard diving mask if you want to submerge!

As an innovation for 2017, Subea offers a snorkeling set with an Easybreath mask and small fins. An ideal set for people who enjoy swimming on the surface!

"CLASSICAL" DIVING MASKS

Diving masks are equally suitable for snorkeling, scuba diving and recreational freediving.

Choose your snorkeling mask for comfort and  a snug fit that will keep out the water. For snorkeling, Subea recommends single lens masks for a wide field of vision when snorkeling. Some have a fabric strap, so that you can put it on easily without watching in your hair, and others have a silicone strap to help keep the mask in place better.
 

SNORKELS FOR SNORKELING

Above all, choose a comfortable snorkel!

A snorkel enables you to breathe when your face is just under the surface of the water. It will make it easier for you to observe sea life as you swim on the surface. With a snorkel, no need to regularly lift your head for a breath of fresh air! Depending on the type of snorkeling, each feature of your snorkel matters and there are different types of snorkels. They are "classical" snorkels equipped with a valve at mouth level for easier water clearing after a short dive, and snorkels with a deflector (or water trap) that will keep you from getting a mouthful of water in case of small waves. Our Subea snorkels are brightly coloured in order to make you visible and easy to spot on the surface by various watercraft.

SNORKELING FINS

Colours, flexibility, material and shape will all impact your choice of diving fins.

For snorkeling, light and flexible fins are best. Other more rigid and solid fins are stronger and more versatile, and enable you to move towards a more intensive or even diversified activity. The fin blades vary depending on the model: the longer and more rigid your fins, the more powerful they'll be, but while requiring more effort from you! Subea snorkeling fins are only full-foot and non-adjustable fins.

AND FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN?

Subea has designed snorkeling sets specially adapted for them.

Some snorkeling sets including a fins-mask-snorkel set, and a mask-snorkel set has also specially designed for your children. There's one main difference between the sets : the snorkel! Indeed, its size and volume have been designed to suit a child's breathing. Finally, these sets have small flexible fins that guarantee minimum power while finning. This makes them ideal for children! The Easybreath-fins set is perfectly suitable for children, but don't forget this mask is only designed for youngl snorkelers over 10 years old!
