This shop is either the worst or the best depending on which owner you get. The guy there, James (?) and his assistant (don’t remember her name) are amazing. Both are super friendly and will take the time to answer any question you can think of, no matter how inane. He’s one of those old hat divers who trains right and really knows his stuff. Maybe a little ego, but what good diver doesn’t have one?
On the flip side of the Jekyll and Hyde personalities is the female owner. She’s obviously not interested in helping out customers or answering questions. I’ve never before walked into a store and had such a rude reception that I walked out without even asking what I came to ask. But that’s just fluff. The meat of it is that she doesn’t know anything about dive equipment. She couldn’t even change out a regulator hose for me, and had no clue about any nearby dive sites. Maybe she was being rude and not ignorant, but saying most people dive in the lakes is just snotty! Where else? The bath tub?
Bottom line… Go when the guy is there and you’re good. He will answer every question you ever had about diving. Avoid his wife(?).
