Does anyone here scuba dive as a hobby? Getting certified is something I wanted to do years ago, but I never got around to it. I've been thinking more about it recently, and I'm considering doing it. However, I get the feeling that it's one of those things where you can be pushed into spending way more money to get started than is necessary, so I figured I'd ask around before I go much further with it. I've done some research, but I'd be interested in what others have to say. Also, before anyone suggests it: Yes, I plan to don a bespoke wet suit. And, yes, I will wear a Submariner as a backup to my dive computer, but I will immediately remove it when I'm done diving so I'm not one of those people who wears purpose-built equipment for "fashion." I'm an outdoorsman, not a savage. Anyhow, SF is always a great place for advice, and I'd appreciate any you guys can provide. Thanks in advance!
