Tomorrow I’m going to the dive shop and can’t make up my mind. Do I go for the AOW course, or get Scuba Pro Nova Seawing fins. AOW is only a few bucks more, but I need better fins than I have now.

Better fins? Wow I used the same fins for 30 years. I handed them down to a friend. So I did get some new ones off eBay from a local shop... They were $150 fins for $40. Personally id get my AOW

Same here. I would opt for the AOW course. Then I would buy used fins on eBay or Craigslist.

I love my Seawing Nova’s.....but I have to agree with everyone else. Do the class.

I’m hoping to do the class and get the fins at the same time now. But I agree with the class being the number 1 priority.

All signed up for AOW, I can’t wait. I’m going through Underwater World down in Horsham.

I was gonna do that, but I found the dive shop I go to sells them at a lower price.
