SCUBA FUNDAMENTAL: Come avvicinarsi alla subacquea nel modo giusto (ITALIAN VERSION)Regular price SFr. 18.00
If you've never tried diving but are thinking about starting , then “Scuba Fundamental - how to approach scuba diving in the right way” is the book for you. It will accompany you from the initial steps up to your first twenty dives.
This is not the classic diving manual. It is very different. Scuba Fundamental's goal is not to teach you to dive. An instructor will do that. But this text will make the process easier. It will help you make the right choices and avoid the most common mistakes that often happen to those who begin to approach this sport. It will also set you on the right path to becoming a competent and capable diver.
Scuba Fundamental will advise you on how to prepare for a course and what a good beginner course should encompass. It will help you in choosing a good instructor, a good operator to dive with once you finish the lessons and what kind of dives you should do in the beginning.
You will learn how diving can change your life and you will get valuable advice on behaviors to maintain in this sport. By reading the book, but especially the chapter "It happened to me" you will have fun, learn and be encouraged through the anecdotes of people who are now expert divers but who, like you, were once beginners.
There is also an entire section devoted to safety, much of which covers vital aspects of diving that standard manuals often overlook or do not emphasize enough.
The message of the book is: get started dive right and you will be relaxed and ready to take on your next adventures. You will have more fun, you will make fewer mistakes and you will be sure that you are well informed, that you have made the best choices and that you have spent your money wisely.
Scuba Fundamental is an essential, unique and reliable guide: a text that you can trust completely and that you can follow during this formative phase of your diving career.
