So many times I see Divers not properly equipped for what they are about to venture into, one reason, no proper training, they do not understand that they may need all this extra scuba equipment to do a certain type of dive. Take Ice diving, for instance, most people do not understand how much gear is needed to do a proper ice dive, they think it is just cut a hole in the ice and go diving. In the ice diving course, divers are shown a video of what can happen when divers decide to just do that.
Owning diving equipment represents a long-term investment in fun and safety. A good set of dive gear can last through years of diving and travel, take you to unforgettable experiences, incredible underwater environments, and bring you home safely. It is important to buy the right gear for the type of diving you will do, ensure that it fits and is comfortable, be trained in its use and keep it serviced at recommended intervals.
