Have you ever considered how you would respond if your mask strap broke underwater while you were diving? As SCUBA divers one of the skills that we are taught is to remove and replace a mask underwater and I’ve shared stories about this in earlier posts.
Being prepared to handle a problem during a SCUBA dive is obviously important. Taking care of your gear before your trip or on the surface can prevent the problem entirely – which is even better!
How do you get your SCUBA on between dive trips? Since many divers look forward to diving on specific dive vacations or the occasional weekend, staying in touch with the sport during our ‘dry spells’ can help us stay current as well as sate our hunger for diving between trips.
Doing that is getting easier! Until recently, our choices for online SCUBA communities has been… well… one. The past few years have seen expansion of internet resources for divers.
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.
