Dusty, Rusty or Crusty Tune Up Dive

Needs a location

This is the perfect opportunity for divers who are new to the sport and want to gain more experience or rusty divers who may have taken some time off and are looking to get back into the sport. Success of this event is directly related to your RSVP so please make sure to set your attendance as going so others will want to join in the fun. These are freestyle events and so good communication with others going on what you expect or need is encouraged. You should communicate via messages on the event page so everyone knows what's going on.

Again: This is a Freestyle event which means there is no Host or Leader. All divers are expected to have good communication skills and freely communicate with others about their desires and limitations. Create sound dive plans, Do effective predive buddy orientations and keep up on both their air supply and their buddies air supply to insure a safe overall dive. Buddy teams should consist of two but no more than 3 divers and all divers should know who and what they are responsible for before entering the water.

We are going to assume this to be a one tank dive but additional dives are fine as long as you communicate that with the others going.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to practice your skills no matter what your level is.
