    I was wondering if anyone else on here is a diver? A little about me...I was certified in Sept 98 and have been diving pretty regular since then. During college things slowed down, but Im been trying to stay busy with it for the last year. In January I started working towards tech diving. I love it so far, but it is definately an expensive hobby.

    Currently my certs

    PADI

    Open Water
    Adv Open Water
    Drysuit

    TDI

    Advanced Nitrox
    Deco Procedures

    Feel free to vote on what type of diver you are and what type of equipment you dive.

    I currently have:

    Dive Rite Aluminum Back Plate with Classic 360 wing
    double 108s

    Dive Rite Stainless Steel Back Plate with Rec Wing
    double 80s

    2 AL40 oxygen and 50%

    A few Al 80s

    Mares Dry Suit

    Dive Rite 700 Can Light

    Shearwater Pursuit Computer

    Dive Rite RG3000 Double Regs

    Thats the main stuff but there is a ton of other stuff. I will try and post a pic of my scuba room at the house!

    Yep, I got my open water in 2005. I've only been on 3 real trips - belize twice, and saint lucia once, but I really like going when I can.

    I rent gear with the exception of mask/fins/snorkel, wetsuit, and aladin prime computer.
