AtlasOmega brings you to Outdoor Retailer’s 2011 Summer Market, where equipment makers showcased their newest and most cutting-edge new products. This year’s show featured technical fabrics woven to produce a vintage look, ultralight gear made to propel the outdoor athlete faster and further than ever before, and of course a host of great parties for the work hard/play hard crowd.
AtlasOmega interviews Evan Bozanic, who at eleven years old became the world’s youngest person to dive in Antarctic waters (30 degrees Fahrenheit). At the age of twelve, Evan became rebreather certified while designing and building his own custom, closed circuit rebreather (CCR), for a science fair project. Now at age thirteen, Evan has dived off of four continents, and plans to be the youngest person to reach the waters off of all seven. He currently lives with his family in Fountain Valley, California.
