People carved their own coffins before death and the corpses were smoked to preserve it throughout the 5-day…

    Suunto is a trusted and respected dive computer producer. They produce high quality and durable dive computers with different designs and colors. Suunto has introduced the new Suunto D4i Novo that I have written a review about. You can read the Suunto D4i Novo review here. Today, I want to talk about another Suunto model: The Suunto D6i.   With one sentence, I can tell you that Suunto D6i is for serious divers. There are four dive modes: Air Nitrox (you can use two mixtures, set their partial pressures -from 0.5 up to 1.6- and switch during the dive) Gauge (depth and bottom time is…

    It is the end of May. We have a long summer time in front. It is a good opportunity to interact with the underwater world. We’ll be able to spend enough time near by the sea.

Well, if you are planning to explore the underwater world this summer, you got a couple of choices. Take a cup of coffee, well, if it is starting to get hot in your town like mine, take a glass of cold soda then, relax and see what you can do as a recreation in your summer time.

    A dive computer is the brain of our total diving system that allows us to make safe dives.

    27 Jan 2014 | 6:15 am
    007 James Bond dives into the waters but doesn’t surface for a long time. He doesn’t have a scuba unit on him. So how he can do this?
