Lessons Learned From a Weekend Dive! (Plus video!)

Hi Dive Buddies!
I had a great dive on Saturday with Greg & Dave (last names withheld to protect their prospects for future political office). We had a good time diving but it also brought to light a great reason to get local diving in.

4 Easy Ways to Share Your Passion for SCUBA Diving!

Share Your SCUBA

Diving is cool… not just a little bit cool… it’s REALLY cool! Having dive experience and being a part of the SCUBA community makes each of us a member of a fortunate group. The great news is that this group is always looking for new members and as ambassadors of the SCUBA community (aka – SCUBAvangelists) we enjoy drawing people into the sport,  either vicariously through our own dive stories or quite literally by introducing them to diving for themselves.

Here are 4 ways you can share your SCUBA!

SCUBA Diving with the Shine From Misfit Wearables – Update

In Episode 001 of the Under Pressure Divecast I introduced the Shine fitness monitor from Misfit Wearables. At that time I hadn’t yet been able to dive with it and today I’m happy to report that after three dive locations the verdict is in and the Shine… well… it shines!

My dives with the Shine:

  • The Homestead Crater, Midway, UT
  • The Blue Hole, Santa Rosa, NM
  • Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The video above was shot in the Blue Hole, NM.

The facts – the Shine has been down to over 100 feet and… it just works!

If you need a fitness partner on your next dive take a look at the Shine.

Destinations of Opportunity

There you are… you’re traveling for business or visiting your relatives; walking down a boardwalk… and then it hits you… ‘I could be diving!’

How often do you take the opportunity to go SCUBA diving when you are traveling for other reasons? Do you avoid packing your gear if you’re not going on a ‘dive trip’ simply because you’d only get one or two dives in anyway?

I know I have. I’ve been to California and the northeast plenty of times to get some dives in but left my gear at home. Why?

Here are 5 reasons divers lose dive opportunities!

  • It’s too much to carry.
  • That’s not the point of this trip.
  • The airlines charge too much for checked bags.
  • What if I carry it all on my trip and can’t dive?
  • I would only get a dive or two in anyway.

Now, let’s talk about strategies overcome these excuses and make every trip a ‘dive trip’!
