An introduction to Jeff’s Scuba Tips Blog
I have been an active diver, some have said overly active, for about 30 years now. I got hooked when I tried scuba for the first time in my high school swimming pool. I have had an incredible journey and have met some amazing people as I have sailed through life’s adventures. The simple tips and tricks I have learned over the years would fill volumes and I want to attempt to share all of that “knowing” with all of my friends.
I try to keep things simple and uncomplicated, I have found knowing how to use one tool well provides better results than having all sorts of options. Some friends have jokingly called me rigid, but I am very open minded to new ways and technologies. I just have been around long enough that I am not that easy to fool and I tend to look several steps ahead.
When looking at new equipment or method, I follow a few simple steps:
- 1. What problem are we solving?
- 2. Was this really a problem?
- 3. What new problems have been created?
I like to have fun and enjoy my diving and I do not like to waste time or money. My real passion is ‘Joisey wreck diving – I love the history and mystery of shipwrecks. Of course, looking at pretty fish on a warm Caribbean reef is quite nice as well.
Your feedback is most welcome as I share all of my little pearls of wisdom, by sharing we can all learn more. One little warning, I have made some mistakes in my diving career, some real doozies! I do not plan on hiding them and will openly impart them.
See ya’ on the bottom,
