Can you guys give me some cool ideas for new divebuddy t-shirts? I want to have a few on hand to provide to members. Can anyone come up with some cool graphics to use? Or just stick with the standard stuff...sharks, frogs, etc.? I would love something eye catching and funny for divers. What about a cartoon image of a diver bending over to fix his fins and another standing behind him (pretty close) fixing his mask...with a caption that says "Who`s your buddy?" Would that be in bad taste? I look forward to your replies.

Hehe.. well, I like the joke, but being a female, I`m not sure I would wear it! ;) Although, there are some pretty borderline female shirts as well - that I wouldn`t wear around my 9year old *LOL*. Anywho, my two cents - I love simple designs, classy logos, and of course those logos need to be strategically placed to accentuate a female`s assets! I`m just saying...keep us ScubaNymphs in mind! :)

From an instructor point of view, you could cover it from a new aspect. When do divers need their buddy most? OOA situations, so why not have a pair of divers performing a buddy ascent with your phrase: "who`s your buddy?" It would most likely look best on the back, that way the ScubaNymphs can show their assets (as it was so eloquently put).

An interlaced D B could be on the front where the D passes through both openings of the B.

T-Shirts a nice idea, however, "Polo" shirts with the logo would be worn by more people. You can defray the cost by selling the shirts at reduced prices. With the shirt being worn more, your name/logo will be seen by more people. There is a lot of funny clothing out there for divers, however we lack clothing which tends to be a little more formal than t-shirts. Just a thought.

It would depend on the frame of reference that the picture is presenting. It could be cute at one point and at another angle it could look way gay," best to go with the male female divers. insted of "he could be standing close behind him" go with, he could be standing close behind her. that way it looks like even the ladies can trust their buddy at any angle that you see it. as far my idea goes, about two diver from out of town at an underwater type of saloon with lots of tough ones around like sharks,barracudas, davey jones, neptune, pirates, etc, giving them the evil eye, with caption like, your buddy`s got your back , or who`s got your back?- your buddy.or Who`s your buddy now. something like that you get the Idea...right?...

Good one bushwhacker! (at the bar) I`ll have a double tall of saltwater please.

Only thing that comes to mind would be a t- shirt that has a full image of B.C. with tank on back,so it would look like you had on all your equiptment. or there was an image in the pictures of this site that had the Quote "one last act of defiance" and a picture of a diver giving the finger to a huge shark that was about to eat him,might make for a cool art design on back then simple logo on front.

How about two divers sharing air on the back and with Got Air? over the top of the graphic, on the front where the pocket usually is located put the Dive Buddy logo!
