Post SCUBA and Freediving stuff here. I'll dump some photos from my latest trip to get us started.
>>1505902I-is that an underwater ufo?
>>1505921Yes, of course.
>>1505895amazing photos. where at?
>>1505976The Bahamas! Specifically around the Exumas and Eleuthera.
Blue Cave - Cuba
1000 steps - Bonaire
>>1505895I go to take my open water next month. Can't wait to get out there.
>>1505895What's a good camera I can use for capturing color?Currently only have a shitty gopro
>>1506859There's a rose colored lens for GoPro that you can mount to the outside of the underwater housing. That+a rail light will make a good combo.
Anyone have advice on how to dive more often? I'm certified but poor and own very little equipment, no friends that dive, and the only nearby diving locations are quarries. I feel like the "no buddies" part is the hardest to get around.
>>1507228Look on Meetup. That's where I found my first good dive group.Scuba is also not for the poor, generally, as elitist as it is to say.
I just got certified last week at Balmorhea, can't wait to start traveling to more exotic places.
What gear does everyone use?I just ordered a 7mm wetsuit for diving in colder waters.
>>1507228learn to live life by yourself. Not just scuba but hiking or anything else, go alone and enjoy yourself if you can't get friends to go. I've gone to Cozumel alone to scuba dive before, it's still a lot of fun and you meet people. For money, I guess just save money wherever you can. Save for a year and you can go diving once a year. And I only own the minimal equipment (fins, mask, etc) and just use tanks, BCD, whatever at the dive site. I don't even have a wetsuit and I usually just use bathing suit and dryfit shirt, maybe lavacore if it's colder.
Xmas, siberian style
>>1514494Telling someone to go dive alone seems like one of the stupidest things you can do
Does anyone here have a dive watch for skindiving?
be me scuba diving in crystal clear strip pitwater 80 deg fish everywhere watchingdecide to fap unzip lycra suit and start slappnblow a load perch are on it they gulp a glob then blow a cloud of goo out gills then start flapping their jaws like they just ate peanut butterI kekd
>>1511398At that point, you might have been better off with a drysuit. My 5mm is difficult enough to move around in as it is.
>>1514797I don't mean you actually dive alone. You go on the trip alone, sign up for a guided dive, and get your dive buddy from the group
>>1514985Yeah, I use a a seiko skx 007 and it does a great job. What is the make/model of the watch in your pic? It looks seriously nice---
>>1515638Lorier neptune. It's a good upgrade if you ever get tired of your seiko
