I like being a troublemaker. Actually, you know what, I'm going to be positive - I like being a torchbearer (yeah..I know, I drank the PADI punch), and I think we would be doing newer divers a disservice by being so quiet here.

 

Been a while since any new topics popped up here.

 

Newer divers...any questions or topics you want to ask. The great thing about these forums is that you can ask anything, and someone will answer! (And, everyone is really nice - so never fear!) 

 

Bring on those questions. Everything from, "Do I buy or rent?" to "What should I bring with me on a trip?" or, "Can you help me find an exposure suit that isn't black?" 

 

Oh, and if you have a punny joke or two - I always enjoy adding to my repertoire!

I agree...we would LOVE questions from newer divers. I get a lot via email so may try and post some here for member input. Kudos for refreshing this! :respect:

There are all kinds of questions, and all kinds of people with different experiences. And, frankly, we can ALL learn from each other.  :flirt:

 

I would love it if you wanted to share some of your newbie questions here! 

 

After all, why not talk diving if we (many of us) can't be diving because of the pandemic?!

Here's a question I got recently from email and I get a lot:

 

How do I adjust from diving in a lake to diving in the ocean?

Probably a good idea to start these in separate topics. So I will....

Kamala -

 

Do you have any other questions for our fellow divers to face and debate? I'm itching to do some critical dive thinking! 

 

:thankyou:

OK, how about this one.  How do you gain and maintain that coveted horizontal buoyancy position and how is the answer different for men than it is for women?  Believe it or not, it is different to some extent for each gender.

Great question Scott!
