  • (quiet guitar music)

  • - As some of you may know, I am a dive master.

  • That means I can go on underwater trips

  • with certified divers.

  • And I have worked as a dive master

  • in Malta for three months,

  • and the one most asked question was

  • "I want to start diving,

  • what scuba diving equipment do I need?"

  • (soft upbeat music)

  • - So, as far as I'm concerned

  • I don't think you need any scuba diving equipment.

  • Especially, if you are a beginner

  • because the dive center you're gonna dive with

  • will for sure have some equipment.

  • If you're not sure, you may ask them,

  • just send them an email saying,

  • "What do I need?"

  • But most of the time, they have all the equipment, but

  • it may be more comfortable for you

  • to have your own equipment.

  • The first one, you may buy,

  • and that, maybe you already had, is a mask.

  • This one was in a snorkeling kit that my mom had.

  • So, I just basically stole one from her.

  • This one is kinda old, but you know what?

  • I just fine with it, it doesn't leak.

  • I did add a little dive professional stuff

  • in the back because I like it,

  • and it makes it easier to just fit on your head.

  • If you need some glasses or have a prescription,

  • you don't need to buy an expensive one.

  • You just can add some stickers on your mask.

  • So that's quite small and easy to travel with.

  • Especially if you need some glasses under water,

  • it can be very useful to have it.

  • So, that might be the first thing you need

  • to buy if you want to buy something.

  • The second thing I would recommend you to buy,

  • because dive centers doesn't always have them,

  • are some socks, some gloves, and some boots.

  • I get cold very easy under water,

  • and, as you might know, the heat

  • goes away from the hands, the feet, and the head.

  • If you go diving in some wrecks,

  • or some parts where there is a huge current,

  • or where you need to grab a rope,

  • you might want to have some gloves

  • to protect your hand to be cut,

  • or to just attach yourself to the rocks.

  • But not to touch wildlife or things like that.

  • This is only to protect yourself.

  • If any animal has a spike or weapon, it will go through.

  • It's just to prevent some allergies

  • or things like that in your hands.

  • So this is only protect you and to keep you warm.

  • Between socks and boots,

  • I use them for different reasons.

  • This one is really to make me feel warmer

  • and to lose my heat a little bit less quickly.

  • And this one is really to go walk on things.

  • Like if you go diving in Malta,

  • you have to walk to the dive site.

  • And sometimes there is rocks,

  • So with this one you're gonna be,

  • it's gonna be very painful to walk

  • because your gonna feel every rocks

  • in the ground.

  • And these ones are really designed to go walk.

  • However, if you decide to use this kind of boots,

  • you might need to tell the dive center

  • that you need special fins,

  • and maybe fins that are bigger

  • than what you usually use.

  • Also, to protect you from the heat,

  • being cold under water, I highly recommend you

  • to buy this kind of under water t-shirt.

  • They are quite cheap too.

  • They're like five euros.

  • I have two of them because when I end a dive,

  • I just change to a new one,

  • because when they get wet and it gets windy,

  • it's very cold inside them.

  • But they dry very, very fast,

  • and they prevent you from getting sunburned.

  • You get, like, protected from a lot of things with them.

  • So, I highly recommend that you buy

  • these kind of things.

  • You can also have a full neoprene one,

  • but I tend to not like them as much as this one.

  • Even though they are warmer, they also are tighter

  • when you don't have water on you.

  • And if you don't put them on the water,

  • and you have them, like, good on you,

  • when you go on the water, they're too big.

  • So, I don't know,

  • I really prefer this kind of Lycra,

  • light, stretchy materials.

  • - The last piece of equipment that is quite small

  • and that can fit in your regular luggage,

  • is a dive computer.

  • So, obviously this is quite expensive,

  • more expensive than the other thing I showed you before.

  • This one is very useful to know your decomp time,

  • to know what you can do while diving.

  • If you borrow one from the dive center,

  • they're not gonna have your diving profile.

  • They're gonna have the previous person profile,

  • and if they go really deep,

  • you won't have as much time as you should have.

  • So, this is really to help you,

  • but I would not recommend it

  • to buy it as a first item.

  • If you want to monitor what you did,

  • if you really want to improve,

  • this is a good way to do it.

  • It would say that on your dive computer.

  • But, that's not really an item for beginners.

  • Also, you don't need to buy a very expensive one.

  • I had a Suunto D4i,

  • which is about 400 euros, I would say.

  • And I didn't like it,

  • when it does a lot of things,

  • it didn't show the time.

  • But I didn't see the important information on it.

  • So, sent it back and I bought a Zoop,

  • which is the cheapest one you can find.

  • I guess it was 100 euros at the time.

  • I don't know, but it was really cheap.

  • And, it did do the job.

  • So that's what I would recommend you to buy

  • if you're a beginner and you want to get

  • more comfortable in your dive.

  • Is a scuba diving suit.

  • So this one, I actually bought it when I was

  • 14 or 15, around that.

  • I'm now 23, so it's quite an old suit.

  • I was really happy when I first bought it

  • and I'm still really happy with it today.

  • So, you have to choose wisely.

  • I could do a video if you want

  • on how to choose your scuba diving suit.

  • Yeah, that's really a good thing to have with you

  • when you go diving because you're sure

  • that it's gonna fit you,

  • you're gonna be warm and comfortable with it.

  • So, if you have your own suit

  • the diving will be more pleasant

  • and you will enjoy it better

  • if you have your own materials.

  • Also, what you have to do if you buy a suit,

  • is remember to oil the zip, right there.

  • You can do it with Vaseline or mineral oils.

  • And just remember to do that

  • otherwise your suit is not gonna last long.

  • This is the one prong that breaks on suits.

  • So just oil them sometimes when you thing of it.

  • One struggle that I found with my suit

  • is that it takes like half of my bags

  • just to put my suit on.

  • Which means I either need less clothes

  • or I just take another luggage for my diving equipment

  • which can be a little bit more expensive.

  • Especially if you're not gonna dive

  • during all your vacation.

  • That's something that you have to consider

  • before buying your suit.

  • So, if you're just starting diving,

  • just think of what you're gonna really use, what do you want

  • and if you can try some equipment

  • before buying some, this could be a good idea.

  • So that's it. I hope you liked this video.

  • If you like it, give it a thumbs up.

  • please leave them in the comment sections below.

  • I would be really happy to answer them.
