Yesterday, Robert, Del Rio Dive Club president, and I met in person for the first time for a dive. I was fortunate to share my 50th dive with him and after successfully completing the dive we had a good conversation.

There are many "certified" divers out there who don’t dive more often, because they don’t own their own equipment. They probably would dive more if they had...

Leisure Pro purchases

When it comes to equipment purchases, divers have many options regarding where to make their purchases. Generaly speaking, purchases can be done at local dive shops, online stores, or online classifieds. I have made purchases from all three and find each have their conveniences and risks. My favorite equipment supplier however, is Leisure Pro. I first learned about Leisure Pro from a fellow camp counselor while completing the PADI Open Water certifcation course as part of a "Cops and Kids" event...
