Welcome to Social Diving and thank you for checking out the site!

My name is Julius Launhardt and I started Social Diving in 2018 while I was still in university. I started out giving diving courses to hundreds of students before people started to tell me:

Can you please write down what you teach us in your courses so we can go back to it whenever we want?

Since then Social Diving has evolved with a single goal in mind: Create an online resource for scuba divers with guides, reviews, and tools that are easy to understand and of high quality.

Something that I wish I had when I was first starting out.
