CHOOSING THE RIGHT DIVE GEAR FOR YOU
There are lots of different factors here, such as your size, gender, preference etc. But the biggest one for most people is probably cost. Generally speaking the more you pay, the better gear you will get, the more comfortable it will be and the better your diving experience will be. There is a limit though, if you were to do blind trials of the top brands most expensive gear, I bet most divers couldn’t tell the difference. There is however a lot of difference between entry level gear, and good middle of the range gear.
The first two things you should consider are your budget, and the fit of the gear. You might want the best mask, but if it doesn’t fit your face, it’s pointless buying it. So in the same way you try on shoes before you buy, you need to try on all the gear and test it out. Don’t buy online, you can’t try the gear on, check the quality or make sure it works for you.
Lucky for you, Tauranga Dive have an indoor heated 4 meter deep training pool that you can use anytime you like for trying out gear, or refreshing your skills etc, and we are experts at fitting you out with the right gear.
Come in and see us, try the gear on, and get the right advice.
