WELCOME!
When you arrive you’ll see two 20’ x 40’ tents with big DUI logos on the top. Registration opens at 9am. After you park your car, grab your regulator and come on over! We have 7 stations under the tents. This will help you know what to expect and how easy it is to get you fitted and ready to go diving!

STATION 6 – SUITING UP
Start putting on your insulation while the CREW checks your suit to make sure it has the right sized ZipSeals and picks out your RockBoots. They will help you all along the way and you’ll be in your DUI before you know it and off to go diving! We have DUI Weight & Trim Systems and ZipGloves to try, too!
