Re: Question

I hear ya on the different computer, but its a crazy jump from that one to others...200+ dollars to be exact. Then again I will need other divers opinons to really nail down what to do and I appreciate it.

Re: Question

Thanks Brian, Yeah I assume that I will get a bunch of answers but after reading the reasoning it will make it a little easier for me to make a decision. I will most likely go used on much of my beginning gear, but is there anything that I should asolutely NOT go used on? All answers are appreciated...

Question

So my first class is this Monday and I have been looking around at getting my own gear. I will be honest, this hobby is somewhat expensive so buying things will be a process. I will be renting much at first and my question is "What should I buy first?" I felt that I should ask you all and ...

Re: I COULD BURST

You all are so very helpful!! What I have learned... If i'm going wetsuit during the winter I should limit it to one dive (my intention at first anyways) and I was thinking shallow as 30 - 40ft so that should be ok. Eventually I will buy a drysuit and I assume that after a few winter dives in a wets...

Thanks Bob,
Please define Shallow Dive...

As long as getting out and switching from wetsuit to clothes is a very short time, I should be ok?

Re: I COULD BURST

Well Im not sure what I used but when I snuck in a few uncertified dives it was in February and I was fine in a wetsuit. Looking around it seems that most wetsuits only go to 7mm. So I assume thats what I used. I really hope I can dive in the winter with one as that is the best visibility around the...

Re: I COULD BURST

Last question before I move out of the N00b area.

I assume that 7mm wetsuit will be fine in this area. As I understand it, our Puget Sound really doesnt change in tempature that much seasonally....4-5 degrees?

Thoughts?
