When I was just a kid living in suburb Melbourne, I wanted a pair of the original Air Jordans – the flashy red and black ones that were banned in the NBA for not being white (racist!), but Jordan wore them anyway because he’s Jordan, and he doesn’t give a damn about the pity fines he had to pay for disregarding that rule. Anyhow, growing up in a single-parent family basically meant that $70 Air Jordans were a no-go, so I’d pass through the sneaker store every day and salivate at the sight of them. Read More
As an instructor with more than ten years of experience in scuba diving, I feel entitled to address the essence of this sport in my own unique way. I call it the power of three – safety, comfort and fun. The order of these three words is not as is by accident. One has to feel safe in order to feel comfortable and they have to feel comfortable in order to have fun.
For new divers, owning their own equipment is an excellent way to enhance both comfort and safety because choosing pieces that fit exactly one’s needs and being able to get used to them instantly raises one’s confidence. Today I’m here to give you a little bit of advice on how to choose the best scuba diving equipment for you. When looking for scuba diving equipment for sale, it’s of pivotal importance to find a dive center (whether online or offline) with staff who can readily respond all of your questions regarding the products diving and guide you to find the perfect fit.
In terms of brands, a foolproof way to hit the under-waters is to go with major manufacturers like Mares Diving Gear, Oceanic Diving Equipment, and TUSA Gear. There are about half a dozen eminent manufacturers in the scuba business and if you are choosing equipment from any of them, chances are you’re getting something that’s going to last you long time.
Needless to say, it’s important for the gear to fit and if you are buying from a physical store, the staff can surely assist you, but if you want the convenience of buying online having the products delivered at your doorstep, you can find the right measures by following a specific online chart and just with a body tape measure determine the right size for you.
If you are just starting out, you may be thinking there’s a lot to buy as to become a fully equipped diver. A good rule of thumb is to upgrade your gear slowly, start with the basics and get the extras when your budget will allow you to. A diving computer is something you may want to consider getting right from the start as it makes diving a little easier and more fun. Purchasing your own regulator is also recommended for safety reasons.
Finally, when looking for scuba diving equipment for sale, many divers tend to get excited over how cool a certain piece of gear looks. However, coolness is often the worst factor to base your decision on. The quality and functionality of the gear is what you ought to consider as to ensure you’re getting the best value for your money.
Getting stuck with your vehicle can cause a lot of panic if you are inexperienced – it can feel like you’re inventing the theory of relativity from scratch. To get unstuck in a relaxed and more confident way, you’ll need to own the right outdoor equipment: Flashlight, Towing Hook and an Air Compressor.
May there be a flashlight and enough illumination to make everything visible. Yeah, sometimes you can get stuck somewhere at night. A busted tire or engine failure while on a tough terrain at night means that the flashlight can be your superhero. You can easily inspect the vehicle, see where you’re headed and even signal for help. Whether online or in a physical shop, you can find a wide range of flashlights, but in Australia, without any competition, the LED Lenser flashlights are leading the way. It’s both due to the energy efficiency feature and the durability it offers why it is such important piece of outdoor equipment, however lacking in importance in may appear at a first glance.
Yar, where me hook be? It’s on your vehicle Captain! Oh, right, another thing to consider is the towing hook. Getting unstuck in some of Australia’s tricky roads can rarely be done without a towing hook. A tow hook or tow bar is a device that is connected to the chassis of the vehicle. The installation process goes like this: the towing hook is mounted on the lunette ring, and the loop is connected to the other vehicle. A well-built towing hook can work at any terrain, rough or smooth.
Fully Inflated Tires, Connects all the Wires. Like it was mentioned before, Australia offers rough terrains that demand a lot of amortization and durability from your tires. However, even if there is nothing wrong with them, as you drive through a rocky terrain, the tires can lose little bits of air and won’t be in 100% working conditions. Tires that are not fully inflated can add to the fuel consumption, make the ride uncomfortable and create dangerous situations for all passengers in the vehicle.
To sum it all up, the road is treacherous and full of danger. However, owning the right outdoor equipment for your vehicle can help you cope easily with any tough situation you may find yourself in, especially if there’s no one around to offer a helping hand. Driving well-prepared means reaching your destination safely.
I’m one of those people who think that in order for a relationship to work, both sides have to be sexually compatible, among other things. And I wasn’t a believer of the sex after marriage myths, as both me and my girlfriend at the time (now wife) had a decent sex life at least a few times a week. But boy was I wrong. After getting married and having two kids, my wife turned borderline asexual. Read More
