First 5 Pieces Of Dive Gear For New Divers To Buy

In this instalment, James imparts his knowledge of diving equipment and makes 5 recommendations on what scuba diving equipment to purchase for new scuba divers.

James points out that “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.”
