Dived Up’s new book ‘Diving Equipment – choice, maintenance and function’ now available

‘Diving equipment – choice, maintenance and function’ by Jonas Arvidsson is a comprehensive guide to choosing the correct gear, using it correctly and making sure it keeps working for as long as possible.
understanding how our dive kit works
How many of us can honestly say we know how our dive kit works, or how it is assembled? Even if you have no intention of stripping it down, knowing the principles behind that diaphragm regulator or dual bladder wing is beneficial.
Author Jonas is a former Head of Education at PADI Sweden, dive centre owner and PADI Course Director. He translated nearly all PADI training material into Swedish and has also instructed in Australia, the Philippines, and Thailand. A former biology and chemistry teacher, Jonas is now a writer, illustrator and translator.
His book will be particularly useful to newer divers, but Diving Equipment will also be of interest to divemasters, instructors, those who need a refresher and any curious non-diver.
It covers a range of conditions and a wide range of diving gear including: accessories, BCDs, computers, cylinders, drysuits, fins, gauges, masks, regulators, rebreathers, sidemount, snorkels, stages, torches, weights, wetsuits, wings and much more.
The book features 202 pages (including 100+ illustrations) and is available now in paperback for £19.95 from Divedup.com, online and from retailers.
