What's up y'all,

In Ohio at the moment looking for some cold water diving buddies for the season. All my normy friends are being babies. I'm a PADI certified Freediver. Just got some new gear I want to try out during the cold water dive season. Let me know if you're around and looking to dive.

Scuba diving is a form of underwater diving in which the diver uses self-contained underwater breathing equipment to breathe in underwater. The equipment is used to provide the diver with oxygen from the surroundings, and to supply the diver's body with air, which is compressed by an artificial source such as the surface supplied air tank.
The term scuba can also be used to describe a swimmer who uses a rebreather, which recycles expired air (rebreathing) from the previous dive. Scuba divers are often called "scuba divers" by non-scuba divers because of this usage, although this term may also refer to any swimmer who carries his/her own breathing apparatus and breathes underwater while swimming.
