In Vietnam, the diving is a relatively new activity that develops in proportion to the growth in tourism since the gradual opening of the country in 1991 ( the Doi Moi ). Until April 2010, no offers for diving existed. Today, the recent partnership established between Dive Spirit Travel, Cocodive Center and Euro Diving Vietnam has created a complete product on the destination of Nha Trang, the birthplace of diving in southern Vietnam.

Check Your Marine Hardware Before Diving Trip

It is important to always have marine hardware on your boat that functions perfectly. Even on a small lake, going out on a broken boat can be rather dangerous. When something goes wrong, you could only have a few minutes to get help; you could become stranded far from shore or the boat could even start to sink. If your boat is in tip-top condition before you ever hit the water, this will not happen, which is why so much time and effort should be put into checking over the boat each spring, before you launch it for the year.


There are some telltale signs that can show you that pieces of hardware need to be replaced. If the lines connecting the sail to the deck look frayed, you should replace them so that they do not snap in heavy winds. After that, check the cleats to see if they are rusting at all, something that can happen quickly with non-galvanished cleats. You should also check the wood under the cleats to see that it is not rotting, which may happen if water gets inside the screw holes, compromising the cleat's integrity even if it is in good condition. Lastly, check the drain in the rear of the boat to ensure that it is not plugged or cracked, that it will effectively drain the water that the craft takes on.

Surfing with favorite Surfboard

If surfing is your passion, you probably need a place to store your board so that you can get to it quickly and easily. This is not something that you do once a summer, but something that forms the core of your life. With the surfboard on a wall rack, you know that it is also right within reach. The board will be protected from accidental scratches and dents, allowed to dry perfectly, and it will be right there waiting for you when you want to go hit some waves.


However, have you thought about using the surfboard as a decoration? People do this all of the time with the things that they love. For instance, people who love hunting and shooting often have all of their guns on a display rack. They know about guns, they love the way that they look, and they want to show off when people come over to visit. A surfboard can be used in exactly the same way. When you hang it on a wall, it looks almost as good as a piece of artwork, but it is even better because it is also functional when you want to go out and have a good time.

You can really use these racks in any room, but your board is probably going to look the best against a blank white wall. This makes it the focal point of the wall, and the colors will stand out. For the best Surfboard wall racks choose

Having Fun in the Sun, While Playing It Safe

There are not many people, especially here in the sun-starved UK, that do not enjoy a nice day at the beach or even a relaxing picnic out in the country. Sunshine is actually good for us, as scientists have proven that even just 15 minutes a day can provide just about everybody with the appropriate dose of vitamin D. In fact, it appears that sunshine is in fact the best source of vitamin D for us. Taking extra vitamin D tablets does not provide any real additional benefit.

It probably comes as no surprise that sunshine is in fact good for us. Just about everybody gets a sense of energy from being outside in the sunshine, even if just for a little while. But it is also important to remember that too much of a good thing is in fact not a good thing at all. Especially for many of us here in the UK, who are fair skinned by nature, prolonged exposure to sunshine can cause some nasty burns which can be painful and not look very appealing. It is therefore important to pay close attention to how much time one spends in the sun, as well as making sure that they take all the necessary cautions to remain safe.
