The Leisure Trends Group, which surveys the dive industry, reports that retail sales in major equipment categories were absolutely abysmal this August. Dive customers are avoiding high-ticket dive equipment. Dive computers are down 36% in dollars; B.Cs, 28%; and regulators, 21% from August 2001. The under $150 categories did not get hit as hard. Sales of fins are down 18%; masks, 15%; and snorkels, 13% from last August. Are there any bright spots? Yes! Equipment needed for certification courses and dive instruction are both up.
