We make a pre-dive prior to a trip in a local lagoon. Our equipment is find now with the rebuilding of the inflator on the BCD. A friend found a leaking SPG. Good to go.

Checklist check list checklist! I can’t emphasize how important it is. Forgetting one thing like a spare o ring can spoil a trip. I use one that I found online. It’s a good start

A pre dive. A check list, tons of buddy checking.

List, check, inspect, test, double check, pack.  

I find it helpful to start form the head (mask,hood) and work to the feet (fins, booties) that way you are less likely to miss something.

I don't want to be the guy who forgot his mask, reg, fins, etc . seen it happen.
