The key first step for new scuba divers to improve their diving skills in the underwater environment is, Dive a lot.
The more you dive, the more experience you get, and the higher your comfort level in the water soars.

One major question on almost every newly certified scuba diver’s mind is: How can I dive more to become an experienced diver?

Dive clubs provide the perfect source for a new diver who seeks diving experience. There’s always a buddy or two who can get away for the day, and is anxious to get wet, if you ache to get your tank wet, and need a diving partner, I recommend you join a local dive club. If you have trouble finding a dive club, check with your local dive shop. The people there probably know about any local clubs, and can give you the contact information for joining.
Not only will you find dive buddies when you join a dive club, you’ll find a lot of diving knowledge among the members.
And they’re always ready and willing to help you improve your scuba diving skills with the tips and tricks they’ve learned by diving.

Good article man! It’s so much nicer to have someone or a group of people to dive with. You tend to dive more often the more dive buddies you have :)
