We have some loaner gear for first time players, but eventually you will need to purchase and maintain your own equipment.

Lots of trade offs between speed, acceleration, maneuverability, comfort, price, durability. Highly recommend to try another players fins in the pool before purchasing. Avoid fins that are very small, very soft, or very long (no 4 foot long free diving fins!), or have holes/vents.

Recommend Equipment:

Avoid anything fancy, like special valves at the bottom or top of the snorkel. Large bore (diameter) snorkels may be better for players with big lungs, they can also be harder to clear. Snorkels can be cut down to a custom length quite easily. You will also want some silicone "snorkel keepers" to attach your snorkel to your mask/cap, or a "snorkel band".

Mask Strap

Many players replace stock silicon straps with polyester or polypropylene straps that keeps masks firmly on ones head. This can be made from a camping strap such as those found at REI, or purchased from an UWH/UWR shop. Ask around for more info on how to make one.
