Jet Fins – The Holy Grail

 

Hello Amazing Buddies!

For the new, the old or the diver with a collection fins, if you are considering of getting Scuba Pro’s Jet Fins, think no more and just do it!
Today i’ll be telling you what is so awesome about this pair of fins!

Grabs yours today at our store.

 

But first, a little into history!

The Jet Fins was born in 1964 but it was only in 1970’s that Scuba Pro bought over the rights to this pair of awesome fins and almost immediately, it achieved it’s peak.

It was a success – they sold over 100,000 units in the first few years (those were big numbers back then because there were only a fraction of the divers there are today). They took the concept and proceeded to popularise the fin with the US Navy and other commercial diving operations.

Being as recreational diving has mostly evolved from commercial and Navy diving, the Jets came with it.

What makes the Jet Fin’s history so amazing is the fact that they haven’t undergone much in the way of change since their creation in the mid-sixties.

The fact that the design has not changed since the 1970’s and so many veteran divers are still holding dear to their Jets proves how well loved and awesome they really are.

Who are they were made for?

Jet Fins are surprisingly versatile. Anyone can use Jet Fins, but not everyone will have the same experiences with them. It is commonly said that Jet Fins are perfect for divers who use powerful kick strokes. Although it is heavier than the average recreational fin, the awesomeness of this pair of fins is worth the little bit of work out! They work well for most styles of finning though they are fantastic for frog kick because you kick less frequently but with more power in each stroke. It takes a little time to get use to them in the beginning but once you have mastered the techniques of the Jets, you are set and ready to propel your way through the deep blue

The fact that Jet Fins have been almost exclusively adopted by the Navy and the commercial diving sector speaks volumes about what type of diver would benefit from them – someone who needs thrust, durability, control and convenience.

If there was another good reason why the Jets are so renown other than for its power it would be its durability. They can last a life time and with proper care, you might even be able to see your children using them! Overall, these Jets are indestructible. They don’t get sun damaged, salt eroded, chlorine discoloured, travel battered, coral gouged or split. They are the strongest pieces of equipment that you will ever own. They will really last a lifetime.

 

The Design

So, what makes these fins such Godly items?

★ Material – Jet Fins are made by using only one single compound which is rubber, moulded in one piece and therefore unable to have “component failure” being as there are no screws, welds or connections to break as happens so often with modern fins. The Jet Fins are also flexible enough to provide excellent thrust, stiff enough to transfer all the diver’s leg energy into pushing the water backwards and robust enough to take literally any harsh conditions a diver can throw at it.

★ Vents – The vents, placed at the end of the foot pocket, allow water to pass through on the recovery stroke but force water backwards on the power stroke. This improves efficiency while maintaining the integrity of the stroke

★ Spring Straps– These are the cherries on the top of an ice cream.  Nothing fits quicker than a pair of fins with spring straps. They are secure, comfortable and ridiculously convenient! No buckles or straps to deal with! The metal spring strap is stretch and just left behind your heel and that’s all! No fuss, fins are on and off at a moment’s notice. No parts to fiddle or mess with.

★ Durable – Just as i said above, even though Jet Fins are well known for their abilities under water, the real reason they are so super famous is their unbelievable longevity. They manage to provide the same levels of performance as modern day technical fins while being massively more strong and robust. Don’t worry about sun damages, salt eroding, chlorine discolouring, travel battered, gouged by corals or splitting. They would last through a nuclear zombie apocalypse.

★ Simple – As described above as well, the Jet fins are a single rubber moulded fin. No screws, no welds, there is nothing to replace and therefore so much more simpler than almost every other fins.

★ Compact – This feature is a must for cave and wreck divers and other divers in overhead environments. The Jet Fins are broad and short which means that even the clumsiest of divers are able to avoid kicking our buddies and the ocean floor. They are great for performing some more advanced kicking strokes almost gracefully.

 

 

Conclusion:

These Jet Fins has proven itself against the test of time, they have proved worthy to a big scope of different divers and they with its own little pros & cons, they are still loved world wide.

Why Do You Dive?

 

 

Being that Human are on top of the food chain and the only beings that can make a difference in the world,

I urge you to read this and perhaps, just perhaps, even if I can only tickle the mind of 1 out of 100 people who read this then I know that at least even I can make a difference.

Almost all of us will know what I am going to say in the following but what boggles my mind is the number of people who knows but are apparently not doing anything about it.

“Humans are the wrong in the world that we need to correct.”

 

The reason why I am writing this post is because I want to ask you, what is your reason for diving?

I have heard answers like “Because we want to see the ocean and the reefs before they are gone instead of only seeing them through the internet.”

It is a common answer and it is such a sad reply to a question that could possibly have more than a million different answers to.

I knew that to most of us it’s just “because I like to dive” or “to try out something new”

Today I hope you can take a look at my answer for why I want to dive.

Read it with an open mind, with the dying earth in sight and what we could do more to save and preserve her beauty for the future generations to come.

BE THE START OF THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE 

Small changes like using less plastic –  don’t use straws, printing double sided pages, using less electricity. All the simple things that we can change in our daily lives can impact the world, even if it is just one person. You might think that what you don’t make an impact because you are just one person but think about it like this.. I drink about 2 cups of iced tea everyday. That’s 14 straws a week and 210 pieces of straws a month. If 2 person stopped using straws, that’s 420 pieces of plastic straws in a month.. Insane right?

Now, how do you make a bigger impact?

You know that dive trip you’ve been planning with your buddies? Let’s take a look at how much it cost, I’d estimate at least $500.

After a couple of beers and $500 later, when you are back at your desk in the office and looking back on your trip, what do you think of it?

Yeah, you had fun and took the perfect Instagram-worthy photos of your silhouette.

Yeah, perhaps you even saw some turtles or really cool fishes while diving.

But at the end of all that, did you do anything meaningful or something that might create change even if it is just a minuscule amount?

What if in the future if we spend $xxx to still go diving, still get to travel BUT we add in some sort of conservation work?

Like a reef clean up? Reef restoration dive trip, etc. Many diving locations also have reef restoration events that you just might not have noticed. Not only do you still get to dive, but you get to do a part in keeping the ocean YOU are diving in clean, healthy and happy so that more divers of our future can look at the beautiful reefs YOU helped restore

 

Let’s plant the seeds together today so that tomorrow, we can see a better Earth.

We have a clean up trip coming up in a few days, if you have the time, please do show your support to our Earth.

Most people learn more effectively if they experience something first hand. So I beseech you to come take a look at our oceans and do your part in saving it.

Let’s all do a part in restoring and keeping her healthy.

 

Date: 20 – 22 October 2017

Location: Tioman, Berjaya Resort

For more details, please head on >> here <<

If you cannot make it for this trip, do keep a look out for more clean up trips.
Even if you only do it once a year, it is still an effort put in instead of none at all.

One of the essential equipment that divers need to have is the Dive Computer. A dive computer provides information to aid the user plan their dives and dive their plan. This means diving within safety limits!

With that, we introduce the “sporty” dive computer – ScubaproChromis.

Topside or under water, this versatile wristwatch-style dive computer delivers features and performance at a very affordable price.” – SCUBAPRO

Scubapro Chromis in Classy Full Black

The ScubaproChromis is a multi-sport dive computer that has the looks and functions. With its sleek and stylish design, it is ready for action in and out of water. The polymer casing and marine grade stainless steel front ring and back plate makes it ultra-lightweight and robust. From exercising to travelling, the handy Chromis is convenient to wear as a regular wrist watch for daily routine.

On the surface, Chromis has all standalone wrist watch functions – full time-keeping, alarm clock, stop watch, dual time, and even a built-in altimeter. Under water, Chromis has full featured deco dive computer in 3 dive modes (ie Scuba, Gauge and Freediving) to fit any diving needs. The Scuba mode supports air and one nitrox mix from 21% – 100% O­­­2 for certified air and nitrox divers. Chromis is highly adaptable to any dive plan.

Chromis features a clear, large, high-contrast display with specially designed extra sharp characters. The display is tested and proven to be extremely easy to read under water at any angle and visibility. Audible and visible alarms are added to alert divers of safety limits too. All the essential information can be obtained at a glance so divers are thoroughly aware of the diving conditions and limits. Chromis zigzag strap is also cleverly designed to provide comfortable and secure fitting even when wetsuit is compressed under depth. For conservative divers, other than the automatic safety stop function, Chromis has a unique Profile Dependent Intermediate Stop (PDIS) which computes an intermediate stop to facilitate nitrogen release, based on the current and previous dives and breathing mixes used. A Microbubble (MB) levels system is also incorporated for divers to adjust the level of conservatism (L0 to L5) in the custom algorithm so the algorithm can better reflect and calculate the appropriate dive plan and limits required to accommodate different divers’ capabilities. A more experienced and younger diver may opt for less conservative dive with shorter safety stops while a tired diver may go for more conservative dive. With the flexibility to suit different divers’ needs and enhance safety features, divers can enjoy their dive without fret.

In addition, ScubaproChromis has a dedicated and interesting function for swimmers – Swim mode. Scubapro developed its own patented stroke counter for surface swimming.
