The SCUBA Beer fine rules!All over the world dive instructors apply the beer fine law for common ’mistakes’ made by new divers. Beer fines are there for a reason! Can you name at least 3 suitable occasions for buying your instructor a beer?

Hi Ian, great occasions! Glad your instructor noticed it in time. Thanks!

1. Not putting the dust cover on the first stage following the dive.

2. Leaving a tank standing unsupported

3. (cost me a beer) Putting the tank on the BCD facing the wrong way, hooking up the regulator (din) and not noticing the problem until ready to put it on...instructor caught it before I did.
