compact, easy-to-use, and comfortable dry snorkel. It's designed with a special baffle
system to help keep water out and enhance ease of breathing during surface snorkeling. The
flexible neck drops out of the way when diving, reducing the possiblity of snorkel

SP-580Q IMPREX II HYPERDRY SNORKEL
The exhaust pipe features a special cross-cut design to allow for quick, efficient
clearing. The Hyperdry system helps to keep the snorkel clear and the mouthpiece is
specially angled for a perfect fit in your mouth. Both of these snorkels have a special
internal purge channel located below the mouthpiece which deflects exhaled air out the top
of the snorkel while excess water drains through the bottom purge valve.
CROSS-CUT DESIGN EXHAUST PIPE
The exhaust pipe features a special cross-cut design to make it easy to blow the water
out of the snorkel.
TUSA snorkels introduce a one touch
snorkel adaptor for easier attachment to the mask strap.
WIDE COLOR SELECTION
TUSA snorkels are designed to offer divers more freedom and come in a full spectrum of
colors to coordinate with masks and other equipment.
CRYSTAL SILICONE MOUTHPIECE
TUSA snorkels provide a crystal silicone mouthpiece that is engi-neered for comfort.
They mini-mize jaw fatigue and swing out of the way when they are not in use.
CRYSTAL SILICONE ONE-TOUCH ADAPTOR
TUSA snorkels introduce a one touch snorkel adaptor for easierattachment to the mask
TUSA snorkels feature a flexible joint so they are ideal for diving and great for
snorkeling: the SP-110 snorkels have an oval joint to reduce water resistance thoroughly.
LARGE CAPACITY DRAIN CHAMBER
TUSA snorkels provide a large capacity drain chamber and purge valve
(large size oval purge valve : SP-580Q) which allows quick
and efficient clearing.
HOLOGRAM TOP REFLECTOR (SP-300Q)
The SP-300Q has a hologram top reflector for superior identification.
INTERNAL PURGE CHANNEL (SP-580Q)
The SP-580Q has a special internal purge channel located below the mouth-piece. It
channels exhaled air out the top the snorkel while excess water drains through the bottom
TUSA PLATINA SEMI-DRY SNORKEL
Maintains the ideal angle for snorkeling. The world's first three dimensional pipe.
The three-dimensional pipe curve is the result of years of snorkel design and
repeat-ed model changes. Using the average posture when swimming on the surface as the
basis, it maintains the ideal angle for effective breathing. To insure that the pipe top
is close to the top of the head, it is curved along the head section and has an incline at
the back. This creates a greater feeling of unity between the snorkel and head to further
reduce water resistance.
The ultimate in oval types to reduce
The oval design, a unique feature of TUSA snorkels, has now been further improved in
the pipe. It provides direc-tion to water blown upward to insure a clear snorkel at all
times while mini-mizing water resistance during snorkeling. The pipe interior, with its
bellows section, has a new flush sur-face to further smooth the air flow.
Maintain pipe stability.
On the inside of the one-touch adapter, which allows easy mask attachment/re-moval and
position adjustment are two pillars which create a difference in high and low position.
This lets you accurate-ly adjust the strap to prevent the pipe from shaking or falling
forward. The new design maintains the ideal angle.
New pipe top function with three currentrectifying plates.
TUSA led the industry in developing the Hyperdry System [PAT.] which is becoming a new
world standard in snorkel-ing. The three blade current rectifying plate is a new func-tion
offering a further improvement of that system. It recti-fies the flow of the water
entering the system while effective-ly guiding it to the escape pipe for ejection. It also
prevents water spray when clearing the snorkel and controls water return and shaking of
