The DEMA (Dive Equipment Marketing Association) 2015 in Orlando, Florida was a great success. The show was full of innovative scuba and snorkel equipment, along with advances in photographic, sonar, technical, and travel offerings. Dive store owners, equipment retailers, and dive operations personnel, from the world over, filed in to see the largest dive related show in the world. They gathered to assess the plethora of newly designed exposure gear, regulators, masks, and almost anything their hearts desired, that is dive related. Diveboard was there to examine all those things, to bring you select news and items to enhance your dive experience. To that goal, let's begin with a product...

Looking for suggestions on an underwater camera (besides a GoPro). I have been using GoPros for years, and while I have some good video and decent stills, I am wanting to get a better setup for still photos.
Don't want to go broke doing it, and would appreciate and all suggestions!

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...

Vote here Voting finishes at 2pm PDT ! be quick !
The team at Diveboard has been busy cooking a new product for you ! It's called actvt (reads activity) and it's a mobile video-sharing and social-networking app that lets you select the highlights from your video clips with a tap of the screen and then automatically compiles them into a short edit ready to share.
We realized that with all the data we gathered on Diveboard, we were still missing the moments & emotions behind the data - so we worked on trying to find a way to provide you with just that !
We'll be unveiling actvt today at the biggest tech show on earth: TechCrunch Disrupt - we need your vote to win this ! ...

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 ...

Can anyone recommend a good diving operator based in Tokio. I will be spending a weekend there and would like to squeeze some diving.

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. ...

I am advanced open water diver with a strong interest in underwater photogrpahy. I'm based in Singapore and am looking for a dive weekend in either Malaysia or Indonesia.
I have over 200 dives and have dived in Ireland, Red Sea, Canaries, Maldives and Komodo. I am used to currents and cold. I am Irish by the way :)
Would anyone have any suggestions please?
