Tips for Choosing Snorkeling Equipment
Snorkeling is one of the most popular water sports. Snorkeling is synonymous with swimming or diving in shallow water. Snorkeling is also synonymous with snorkels, diving masks, and fins. Usually, in every snorkeling attraction, there are many snorkeling equipment rental places. But for those of you who want to have your snorkel, know some basic things in choosing a snorkel. Here are the tips for you.
Maybe if from the name you are still foreign to hear the name snorkel. We often see snorkeling on television. A snorkel is a breathing apparatus in the form of a hose. Usually, the shape resembles the letter J which is equipped with a mouth guard at the bottom end. If you want to buy a snorkel, make sure you choose a flexible snorkel, because of the more flexible the rubber material, the better the quality. Then make sure the inside of the snorkel is slippery, this is to make it easier for you to blow off the remaining water.
Another mandatory tool is a face mask. Choose a face mask that fits the contours of the face. This is important because if you choose a face mask that doesn’t fit, you can be sure that the inside of your mask will get water in it. Also, make sure the face mask you choose is made of flexible rubber.
Tips for choosing a face mask:
How to choose the right mask is to put the mask on your face without using a strap. Then inhale through your nose and hold your breath for a moment. If the mask is attached to the face, then the mask is suitable for use.
Choice of Frog’s Legs (Fins)
The last snorkeling tool is Fins or frog legs. These fins serve to increase the propulsion of the feet when swimming. Choose the feet of the frog according to the size of your feet. There are two types of frog legs. The first type of heel is open (open heel) and the second is a closed foot (full foot/pocket foot).
Open heel frog legs are usually used for scuba diving activities. Frog legs of this type are made in only a few sizes in the range of small, medium, large and extra-large. The size can be adjusted by tightening the belt on the heel. While closed frog legs are the type that is commonly used. This type has the characteristics of a shortfin tip and various sizes such as the size on a shoe.
