Whether you are a curious newbie or a seasoned technical diver, Try Tech Gear Demo Days will have something for you! Florida Dive Connection has teamed up with several well-known dive equipment manufacturers to bring a series of Tech Dive Gear Demo Day Events to locations around the Southeast United States. Beginning in February of 2018 these one-day events will feature all types of equipment from fins to masks and everything in between with several companies at each event to let divers try out their gear. If you’d like to test dive a new rebreather, a new mask, or just ask questions Try Tech Gear Demo Days will have plenty of gear and dive industry pros on hand to help you out. All divers are invited so come out and join in the fun!
The equipment, training, and techniques of what we call technical diving can be applied to every type of diving to make the sport safer, and more fun. We launched Try Tech Gear to help more divers understand the philosophy of technical diving, get advice from industry pros, and try out some awesome dive gear all at the same place. Our sponsors include Deep 6 Expedition Dive Gear, DiveSoft / Liberty CCR, Underwater Light Dude, and Reef Safe Suncare. Along with these companies, we’ll have equipment and representatives from Dive Rite, Scuba Force/ SF2 CCR, IANTD, and others! Check the website often because more companies are joining in!
Demo Days are scheduled on Saturdays at popular dive destinations like Ginnie Springs, Blue Water Park, Blue Heron Bridge, Lake Jocassee, Merritt’s Mill Pond and others. Lunch is on us and there is no charge other than for normal park admissions and rebreather consumables. We’ll spend the day diving then everyone is invited to gather around the fire that evening to get to know each other better. Try Tech Gear Demo Day Events are relaxed, casual, and inclusive. Everybody is welcome!
The first event is February 3, 2018 at Ginnie Springs near High Springs, Florida. We currently have no less than six companies with gear to demo and may add more. Check the website for details and the complete schedule. Don’t forget to like Try Tech Gear on Facebook too!
