Scuba with a Monofin?

by Gia on April 14, 2017

I've been intrigued by monofins of late, and their efficiency in freediving. I was curious as to whether there might be a benefit to using a monofin in scuba but found very little discussion of it online-- one or two people who have said that they've done it and liked it, and that's about it.

Has anyone here tried using a monofin for scuba and have thoughts?

GoPro Tips and Tricks article

by Pete Bucknell on November 01, 2015

Nick Woodman, a young American surfer, desperately wanted images of himself surfing, personal and up close, and there seemed to be no camera available to exactly fulfill his requirements. He set about creating a solution. Slightly more than a decade later, his camera company has invaded the market with the small, waterproof, and extremely high-quality unit we know as the GoPro. Popular because of its size, price, and the quality of the video files it is capable of producing, the GoPro HERO, in its waterproof housing, has become an enormous asset to outdoor sports enthusiasts and all kinds of filmmakers—from the producers of Breaking Bad to youngsters making their first film in a...

The Great Giant Sea Bass Count 2015

by Connerj on July 06, 2015

It's that time of year again! The now annual Great Giant Sea

Bass Count (2015 edition) is almost here and we are gearing up to spot some


For any of those who didn't hear about the Great Giant Sea

Bass Count last year, the project involves using observations and sightings

from recreational divers to help us better understand how many giant sea bass

(aka Black Sea Bass, Giant Black Sea Bass, etc.) call the waters of Southern

California "home". Since the moratorium on fishing giant sea bass was

implemented, these gentle giants appear (unofficial observations suggest) to be

rebounding from their near local extinction in the early 20th century, thus ...


Diveboard connects with Movescount - Check it out and win !

by Ksso on June 22, 2015

We've been willing to do it a long time ago - I still remember us talking with the Suunto team at DEMA in 2013 about this. And today it's finally there thanks to the joint effort we  made ! Suunto users who have been enjoying the smooth Moovescount upload through their favorite DM5 agent can now easily pull their dives from Movescount to Diveboard.

This is really the best of both worlds for Suunto customers and at Diveboard we're really proud to be the first to bring you this integration.

To try it out, head over to the Dive Manager and you'll find the "Movescount import" button on the "Bulk upload" tab. You'll also find it on the "Profile" tab on the edit of your dives. ...


El Boreas

by Victor Masmitjà Prieto on April 19, 2015

El Boreas no es un barco. Es un pecio. Esto significa que es un barco hundido. Este pecio fue, en vida, un remolcador de altura alemán, de nombre Pellworn, que participó en la Segunda Guerra Mundial con la Marina de su país, resultando con graves daños en su estructura, que nunca quedó reparada del todo. 

Al finalizar la guerra el barco pasó a formar parte de la Marina de los Estados Unidos, donde fue rebautizado como USN102 y destinado a sencillas tareas de trasporte. En 1960 volvió a la Marina alemana para desempeñar funciones de localización de torpedos y minas en la escuela de armas submarinas de Wilhemshaven. En 1980 fue vendido para ser desguazado, pero su destino cambió cuando fue...
