Scuba Fundamental:
Start Diving the Right Way

"This is a great book! Simon is to be congratulated on this insightful, interesting and honest introduction to scuba diving. He tells it as it is!"

John Lippmann, Founder & Chairman, Divers Alert Network (DAN) Asia-Pacific

Scuba Fundamental - Start Diving the Right Way is a unique concept. This is not just another run of the mill “how to dive” manual. If you do not yet dive but are thinking of learning, Scuba Fundamental is for you.

It takes you from the germ of the idea that you might like to try scuba diving up to the point where you have done around 20 dives. This is a crucial phase in every diver’s diving life. This is the time when you decide if you will be a diver forever or if diving will just be something you did once upon a time.

Too many people stumble into diving without being properly prepared or doing enough research and, sadly, end up abandoning the sport, wasting both money and time and missing out on a lifetime of incredible experiences. The aim of Scuba Fundamental is to make sure that doesn’t happen, by guiding you along the right path and helping you make all the right decisions and avoid the many pitfalls that lie in wait for the unwary.

"I wish I'd had this book to read when I learned to dive. I remember being totally confused."

Robin Yao, Executive Editor, EZDIVE magazine

"Pitching a book at the correct level for divers-to-be is fraught with difficulty, as I've found out. Simon Pridmore is a great dive writer, and I think he's finally cracked the problem with Scuba Fundamental."

Steve Weinmann - Editor, Diver Magazine (UK)

"Scuba Fundamental – Start Diving the Right Way is a thorough, sensible and seriously safety oriented guide for new divers. It is also very, very funny. Simon’s anecdotes will make old divers laugh until they cry, whilst promising decades of fun and adventure for new divers."

Judi Lowe, Scuba Instructor, PhD Scholar and Sustainable Dive Tourism Advisor at thedivetourist.
