I’m Joe. I created JoeScuba as a site created to provide information about diving, SCUBA gear, vintage dive equipment, dive travel and info about instruction.
I began diving decades ago, and have since made a little over 3,000 dives. About 2/3 of those have been in a drysuit. The vast majority have been with air, although I’ve begun using other gas mixes a lot more in recent months.
I am a PADI Open Water SCUBA Instructor. I teach through Sierra Diving Center in Reno, NV, and find it to be one of the most gratifying things I do. If you have questions about learning to dive in the Reno/Tahoe area, you can reach me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
My own personal diving interests have taken me deeper, longer, which has made technical diving and technical dive training something of an obsession. People ask all the time, “what do you see down there?” Well, you often hear divers say the most interesting things to see underwater are within the first 30 feet. I don’t deny that there’s a lifetime of things to see within that range, but it’s a deep ocean.
The great thing about technical diving is that it opens up new possibilities. Dives that would be unthinkable on standard SCUBA are well within reach of divers prepared and trained for them. As a result, we have opportunities to see things no human ever has.
I’ve also created a dive log on this site where anyone who wants to can create an account and enter his or her own dives. I think it would be cool to have people logging dives from around the globe, so please join in.
Mostly, I just love to be in and around the water, and to share the experience by teaching others. Hopefully, I’ll post something interesting once in a while.
