Equipment requirements
Everything can be rented from Just Get Wet! Total cost is around $80. We also have a rent to own program for specific items, please inquire if interested.

- Mask – A low volume spearfishing/freediving mask. A standard snorkel/scuba mask is OK for the Level 1 Freediver course.
- Snorkel – A simple J. style snorkel
- Wetsuit – This is your most important piece of equipment. For San Diego, it’s highly recommended to have a 5mm proper spearfishing or freediving two piece, open cell wetsuit. A proper freediving suit will positively influence your course experience. We offer freediving wetsuit rentals, as well as a rent to own program if interested.
- Fins – Longblade freediving fins. Standard snorkel/scuba fins are acceptable for the Level 1 Freediver course. We do not accept “split fins” or the full open heel and bootie style. We have fins available for rent if needed.
- Weight belt – A rubber weight belt is preferred. A standard webbing weight belt is OK for the Level 1 Freediver course. We have weight belts available for rent if needed
- Weights – A selection of 1lb and/or 2lb weights, most people use 5-10lbs. We have weights available for rent if needed

**Optional Items**
- Pool Suit - A 3mm surf suit or something similar is highly recommended for the pool. If you don’t have anything like that please let us know, we have some laying around that might fit you. If we don’t, your 5mm suit will work for the pool but will require a lot more weight for you to be properly buoyant in the pool
- VENTED Docs Pro Plugs - If you are sensitive to the cold water, you may want to consider purchasing some VENTED Docs Pro Plugs. We do not carry these

Throughout your course you will be instructed on what to look for when purchasing new equipment. It is not necessary to buy a new set of equipment prior to your course. However, if there is something you do need/want to purchase then please do not hesitate to call to get recommendations.

We look forward to getting out there with you!
