A save a dive kit for scuba diving. What is it? Who needs one?



A "Save a Dive Kit" is a collection of parts and pieces that the diver will take with them to make sure that they can get into the water.

Just because something breaks doesn't mean you have to sit out a dive. I'll show you what's in mine and you can build yours to meet your needs or equipment.
While I am an instructor and a equipment service technician, there are some things that everyone should have.

Except for the specialty tools, I recommend buying inexpensive tools as in most salt air conditions, your tools will rust.

Inexpensive tools can be thrown away and replaced with little out of pocket expense.

A sneak peak at the SDI Solo Diver Course...



Take my SDI Solo Diver Course

Here's a sneak peak at the program

SDI Solo Diver Course
Chapter 1
Introduction

New divers are traditionally taught that everyone needs to dive with a
buddy. The reasons cited for this wisdom range from: "They can help you if
you have problem," to "You will have someone to enjoy your experience
with." When one is gaining experience and growing one's comfort level
this advice holds true with the condition that the person one buddies with
is competent, attentive, and unselfish. However, and this takes many divers
by surprise, as we gain experience, independent diving or going solo is still
deeply frowned upon by a large number of instructors, dive operations,
and resorts...

As a leader in the dive industry, I've grown personally and professionally by challenging myself to consider alternatives perspectives. Failing to challenge established methods, modalities, and techniques will only doom us to continue to make the same mistakes. I am grateful to my mentors that have helped to shape me as an person which has ultimately resulted in becoming the best diving instructor for my students.

Instagram Video: https://www.instagram.com/p/BSb_kOsFGGq/

I found a post within a forum that shows a failure in scuba diving education. I'm really very surprised about the number of people that don't see how incredibly dangerous incorporating American Sign Language (ASL) into scuba diving practices are. I believe that having access to scuba diving regardless of handicap is imperative. So much so that I've taught divers with various disabilities. However, the common theme with every student is NEVER their disability rather their ability. Even without a physical disability there is a lot to learn during the educational process. Scuba diving is physically challenging not to mention emotionally. The new diver will learn to use muscles they never thought about, overcome urges to do things that could result in injury or death, as well as having to manage equipment that has no correlation in the terrestrial world....
