How To Recognize a "Texas Diver":

1. Their weight belt has a huge silver buckle.

2. They wear cowboy boots with their fins cuz "they are broke in".

3. They have long horns on their mask.

4. They wear a shinny Case knife on their side.

5. Their fin spurs have a star with five points.

6. They wear Wrangler jeans, with heavy starch, as part of their wet suit.

7. They wear straw cowboy hats underwater.

8. A 30’ lasso is attached to their tanks.

9. Leather gloves dangle from their shoulder straps.

10. They learned scuba diving to lasso and ride a sea cow.

If you see anyone like this...well, you might be in the great State of TEXAS or diving with a scuba cowboy.

Most of the information gathered came from the following website:

The other came from a true TEXAS boy!

OMG ...... This is so funny.... I love it. But in truth, most of the divers that I have had the pleasure to dive with who were from Texas were quite impressive.!

I have dived with some divers from Texas and I did not see neither the "star with five points", nor the long horns on their masks...
Any texan diver, what do you think?

It seems funny but truly, some of the divers that I have had the pleasure to dive with were from Texas, and I had very good dives due to their experience and support. Texans, thanks for beign there ¡¡

Now that wasn’t nice, but not everyone can be from the greatest Stater in the US. Just to let you know...TEXAN, BORN AND RAISED!

Thank you
