Biggest Concern when diving

This year I dove with more new dive buddies then ever before thanks to DiveBuddy.com. I feel like the newer divers that I dove with had been very comfortable diving with me and I am glad and hope the experience was good. I have noticed with divers that had a little experience all had the same couple of worries. Please share with us all your greatest concern from list and please add your own if other then those on list.

[Choose #2] Well maintained, personally owned gear shouldn’t be too problematic, but rental gear might be a different story.

[Choose #2] YAY! Glad to hear that you’ve dove so much with DB members David! Umm.. I’m not a diver but if I were, I’d be scared of the whole gear failure.

[Choose #2] My only concern, not a fear is gear failure. Nothing sucks more than getting a flooded computer or light.
