The Florida Dive Connection team has put together some fantastic events to give all divers the chance to try out some awesome gear, meet industry pros, learn a little, and make some new friends. Whether you are a curious newbie or a seasoned technical diver Try Tech Gear Demo Days will have something for you! Florida Dive Connection is working with several well-known dive equipment manufacturers to bring a series of

Tech Dive Gear Demo Day Events to locations around the Southeast United States. For the “Tech Curious” diver the demo days will be a great place to learn and the hard-core “techies” will appreciate the opportunity to try out a variety of great new gear in one place.

The inaugural event is February 3, 2018 at Ginnie Springs near High Springs, Florida. We currently have no less than six companies with gear to demo and will certainly add more.

Demo Days are one-day events that feature all types of equipment from fins to masks and everything in between. With several companies at each event to let divers try out their gear, if you’d like to test dive a new rebreather, a new mask, or just ask questions Try Tech Gear Demo Days will have plenty of gear and dive industry pros on hand to help you out. We invite all divers to come out and join in the fun!

The equipment, training, and techniques of what we call technical diving can be applied to every type of diving to make the sport safer, and more fun. We launched Try Tech Gear to help more divers understand the philosophy of technical diving, get advice from industry pros, and try out some awesome dive gear, all at the same place. Our sponsors include Deep 6 Expedition Dive Gear, DiveSoft / Liberty CCR, Underwater Light Dude, and Reef Safe Suncare. Along with these companies, we’ll have equipment and representatives from Dive Rite, Scuba Force/ SF2 CCR, IANTD, and others! Check the website often because more companies are joining in!

Demo Days are scheduled on Saturdays at popular dive destinations like Ginnie Springs, Blue Water Dive Park, Blue Heron Bridge, Lake Jocassee, Merritt’s Mill Pond and others. Lunch is on us and there is no charge other than for normal park admissions and rebreather consumables. We’ll spend the day diving then everyone is invited to gather around the fire that evening to get to know each other better. Try Tech Gear Demo Day Events are relaxed, casual, and inclusive. Everybody is welcome!

With a fun relaxed atmosphere, equipment from several manufacturers, knowledgeable industry pros, and diving at awesome locations Try Tech Gear Demo Days will have something for everybody. We’ll see you there!
