First 5 Pieces Of Dive Gear For New Divers To Buy (Watch Video)

Published

on

Next in the series of weekly videos from Divers Ready!

New To Scuba Diving? What dive gear should you buy first? Why is it better to own than to rent scuba equipment? All these questions and more are answered in our latest scuba diving video!

When I started scuba diving, I made mistakes when I bought my first set of scuba diving equipment. I bought gear that was either cheap, or almost broken or that just wasn’t suitable for the cold water diving I grew up doing in the UK. I learned from my mistakes and want to help you to avoid the same ones, by encouraging you to save up for one piece at a time and invest in quality dive gear.

I decided to pick up the phone and call around the different agencies to get their best offers. It didn’t go well….

Thanks for watching! D.S.D.O, James
