    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    The discussion seems to me to be moving now towards JJ vs REVO or in any case the pros and cons of the two machines. Coming back to my initial question "Where should I start to approach the rebreather world?", I understand that the best thing is to talk as much as possible with rebreather...

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    The similarities don't stop there, because I also live in Veneto! My buddies are mostly GUE, but OC. I barely know JJ GUE divers (2 or 3 people with which I did a few dives years ago in OC) and in general rebreather divers, just because I am used to dive with OC people. I am an OC GUE diver...

    At what age did you switch to the rebreather? (From OC)

    Maybe it is not your case, but I believe that a lot also depends on where you live and if you are lucky enough to have around you, in your life, people who have this passion. For example, I live in a mountain village, where even today a diver is seen as a Martian and often arouses curiosity...

    At what age did you switch to the rebreather? (From OC)

    I expect most to be between 40 and 50. In general, scuba diving is an activity that does not appeal to the youngest, for various reasons. If a young person (let's say between 20 and 30) is passionate about this activity, it still takes time to complete a serious path before reaching the...

    At what age did you switch to the rebreather? (From OC)

    I think this is the path that most people did in Italy at that time, at least with Fipsas. I say this because the path you did is the same as my first instructors in fipsas

    At what age did you switch to the rebreather? (From OC)

    Just curious to understand the average age at which people here decided to leave the open circuit

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    This is a very interesting consideration and for this reason I would like to start now to deepen the construction of the single machines, so as to make an objective reasoning on the reb, its functioning, its safety etc, together with the methodics, the standards and the customizations proposed...

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    I have a couple of tech certifications, one is the GUE tech 1, the other is a normoxic with another agency, let's say a tech 60 in the GUE world. The standard I use are the GUE ones anyway and most of my current OC buddies are GUE... despite this I am open minded and I don't want to focus on the...

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    Thanks everyone for the comments, I didn't think I would get so much feedback. From your words I understood that the savings on the single tech dive is considerable, then based on the number of dives per year we can also talk about "recovering" the cost of the reb, but that's another story. A...

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    Hi everyone, I am a diver with about twenty years of dives on my back and I am starting to consider a future step towards the rebreather. For several years I have been certified for diving at 60mt with 2 decompression gases and I stopped at this level (GUE and CMAS certifications). I would like...

    Ciao from Italy 🤌🏼😄

    Thanks! live in the North east of Italy. I often dive in the lakes near where I live and when I can I go to the sea in Croatia because it is close enough. In Italy I really like the islands (Sicily, Sardinia, Elba, Giglio) and Liguria also. My favorite dives are wrecks

    Never been to Europe, considering Italy.

    I am a tech diver from Italy, any specific question, let me know in case. Without knowing your route and you level, I would suggest Sardinia (Explorers team for tech and Baseone for cave) Tuscany (Argentario Divers) and Liguria (Portofino divers). In terms of locations, Elba, Giglio and Tremiti...

    Diving in Sardinia

    You may have already gone to Sardinia, anyway I did a technical diving weekend 10 days ago near Cagliari and I was very satisfied. It was 30 degrees Celsius outside, perfect water temperature as well as visibility. Wrecks between 40 and 65 meters (The Loredan wreck was really beautiful) with...

    I think it's time to invest! 📷

    Hello everyone, I am new to the forum, I was looking for a place to get some opinion/ advice for the future investment that I would like to do in terms of underwater photo-video equipment and I think this is the right place to get some feedback. I am a technical diver who has developed a...
