    First Post Ever! Freediving along the Red Sea in Eygpt this September, any advice on gear rentals or dive spots??

    First time poster not sure if i'm in the right section, please redirect me if i'm wrong. Traveling to Eygpt in September is it better for me bring my own gear from home (Australia), or just rent out some gear when i get there?

    Question Mask volume and "compressibility ratio"? Why its important?

    So far I always read, the lower volume the better and there is nothing else to care about. I understand basic logic - the smaller volume, the easier to equalize. But then I read some threads on this forum, and some users often mention things like "compressibility ratio". I even found a post...

    Question What Weight belt on swimsuit

    Hi, I'd like to ask about what kind of a weight belt I should get. I know it's good to get a rubber one so it doesn't slip. I won't be wearing a wetsuit though as I'm going to really warm waters and I will have just a swimsuit. I wonder whether it will be slippery on a swimsuit as it's a...

    Question Scuba wetsuit for freediving/spearfishing

    Hey guys. I know scuba wetsuits are very different from freediving/spearfishing wetsuits. But does it really make a huge difference, even for begginers? I am planning to buy a wetsuit for spearfishing and freediving. I found one in very good conditions (used twice only) for an awesome price...
