I am going offshore for the first time. I am going off the coast of Malaysia (tropical). I am wondering what equipment I should bring with? Also, what in terms of personal stuff too i.e. deodorant, toothpaste, books etc?
I am bringing my knife, hat liner, some tools, workboots and thats about it. I am not bringing fins as I didn't need then while working inshore. I am seeing video of divers though and they have their fins on. It's too late for me to pick up a pair as I leave tomorrow (just got the email 2 days ago...you know how it is) . Can I borrow other divers' fins? Will I be ridiculed for doing so?
