How to choose diving flippers

If you seriously want to go diving, the choice of fins will be one of the most important decisions. To make it easier to get acquainted with the market, we will deal with the classification of this type of underwater equipment. First, fins are either ordinary (one for each leg) or “monofins” (one fins for both legs).

bull flippers have two of the most significant factors: heel type and stiffness of the flippers. According to the first factor, flippers are divided into open and closed.

Scuba diver interferes with a bad diver

What tricks have people not resorted to to get into the kingdom of Neptune, not accessible to creatures whose airways are not adapted to live under water! The ancients exhausted themselves with lengthy workouts, allowing them to hold their breath for several tens of seconds longer. Another idea came up with the use of lumps of wool or animal fur, in which air bubbles are trapped. The first device used by primitive divers for diving was a long straw through which they breathed while under water. In the 16th century, an air bell and a leather suit began to be used, which was filled with air pumped from the surface. Diving suits gradually improved and for a long time served people as faithful helpers in various underwater works.

But a real breakthrough in the study of the underwater world occurred only in the 20th century, when scuba gear was invented almost at the same time and the first bathyscaphe was built. In 1910, a slightly improved model of the Henry Fluss submarine, invented back in 1878, found its application as the rescue equipment of the English submarine fleet. The use of a similar apparatus called the scuba gear was Continue reading
