    First PADI Recreational Backmount Doubles Certification Issued

    Is it time to kill DSDs and go back to the drawing board?

    Since I got started in the scuba biz we as owners do free DSD's in the pool for people that are interested. We achieve about an 80% conversion over to open water diver. The store owners do most of the DSD's

    Novice Diver - What should happen before underwater hunting?

    Get familiar with game laws, in Texas the laws are different between state waters and federal waters. In some cases you can catch a legal fish on hook and line that wouldn't be legal if taken by spear.
