When the full force of the summer heat is upon us, it can feel too hot to work out – unless you move your fitness routine into the water.
There’s almost no end to the different sports you can practice on and under water and between sister stores Divers Supply and Sports Supply, you’ll find all the toys and kit you might need.
Novice and seasoned divers can find BCDs, regulators and more from Aqualung, Atomic Aquatic, Cressi, ScubaPro, Mares and Oceanic. What many new divers looking to purchase their own BCDS, regulators and dive computers do not realise, however, is that Divers Supply match their prices to North American prices, but with no sales tax in Cayman, it’s actually less expensive to kit yourself out on island than overseas.
Dive computers are, of course, essential for underwater explorers, and brands like Suunto, Oceanic and ScubaPro make fashionable-looking dive watches that incorporate dive computers, which track of your depth and remaining no decompression time but are sleek enough to be worn every day.
Divers Supply is also able to service Suunto dive computers on site – no sending your computer overseas for weeks at a time. It’s all taken care of in-store.
Over at Sports Supply, stand up paddle-boarders can take advantage of a 20 per cent discount on Liquid Shredder SUPS and paddles from now until end of July. Whether you’re new to the sport or a bit of pro, you’ll find board styles for every level.
Catering to the terra firma sportsmen of the island, Sports Supply also stocks athletic wear, including the full spring/summer line from Under Armour – ideal for the humid months as the double dry fabric wicks away moisture extra fast and has a UV protection factor of 50.
You can also pick up footwear for any sport, be it running, football, basketball or tennis, and dumbbells and free weights for those who want to workout at home.
With all that at your fingertips, there’s no excuse for not being active this summer.
