THE EQUIPMENT USED
With varying face shapes from player to player, it’s critical that you find a mask that fits your own to avoid water leaking-in during play. Vacuum-test carefully at your dive shop for a snug fit.
Lens – dual-lens, not single-lens (for safety)
Volume – low-volume better than high-volume (for streamlining; to minimize getting knocked by other players)
The simpler, the better.
Construction – simple J-shape better than with purge-valve (for streamlining; to minimize snagging)
Bore (diameter) – big-bore better than small-bore (for easier breathing)
Fins should match your leg strength and not hurt your legs/joints.
Length – long enough for enough thrust… but avoid too long to retain maneuverability and tighter turning, and to minimize snagging on other players
Weight – avoid too heavy to allow for quickness and to avoid leg fatigue
Stiffness – stiff enough for enough thrust… but avoid too stiff to avoid leg fatigue, cramping and injury
There are a lot of different types of sticks ranging from wooden, plastics and fusion plastics. A pair of black and white sticks make a set.
Padded gloves (usually with silicon padding) are used to hold the sticks. This is to protect the hand.
Important for ear protection. The caps are the same caps used in Water Polo.
