The Fun Part

The more you know about how your dive gear works, the more comfortable you are with it and the more comfortable you are in the water.  You'll also get better performance from your gear, and it will last longer (even though buying new gear is always fun).  Equipment Specialists also can troubleshoot many issues, which means the dive fun continues uninterupted.
