New Podcast for Divers - The Under Pressure Divecast!

by SKuba Steve on May 27, 2014

Hi Divebuddies around the world!

I just released the 2nd episode of the Under Pressure Divecast and would really appreciate your feedback.

The Under Pressure Divecast is a podcast about recreational SCUBA. I cover one main topic in some detail. After that I have a 'Tip of the Week' segment and finally I close the show with a brief discussion about a piece of gear.

You can find the divecast and related show notes on the Under Pressure Diveblog web site here.

You can also find it in iTunes here (note... this is the US podcast link for iTunes) or on Zune or Blackberry Podcast directories. ...


Diveboard updates: new commenting & internationalization

by Ksso on May 22, 2014

We've been busy! This week we have two huge upgrades to announce on the platform:

1) The commenting has been upgraded from Facebook Comment - which did a good job but was not really integrated in Diveboard to Disqus. Now if  you're a Diveboard user you'll be commenting using your Diveboard account, if you're not you'll be able to comment using a third-party login mechanism making your life easy. Kudos to Gonzo for bringing this to Diveboard. Check at the bottom of this post to see it in action !

2) Diveboard is now available in French! You can hit the yellow menu and set yoru language or just head to . Gettign there was a journey as we had to go through almost every file...


We just certified some new dive buddies! Check out the video!

Many thanks and congratulations to all our new Dive Buddies. You guys rocked it! I know that I speak for Alan, Todd, Dave (Homestead Crater instructor extraordinaire) and I when I say we had a great time working with you and hope you had as much fun as we did as you dove through your certification to begin your adventures as open water SCUBA divers!

Snorkel Pros, Cons and Solutions

by SKuba Steve on May 14, 2014

Why do divers carry a snorkel? Don’t they have air already?!

If you’re not a SCUBA diver this is an understandable question. Why would we have a snorkel if we’re already carrying air in a cylinder on our backs?

And, if you are a diver do you ever ask yourself this question or have you ever left your snorkel in your dive bag (you don’t have to admit it out loud… just let the voice in your head do the talking).

The answer to the first question is, of course, we do have air but there are some good reasons for carrying a snorkel as a SCUBA diver and some problems as well.

Dive in for more!
