Platform Diving Equipment
The best platform diving equipment consists of everything that will allow you dive unobstructed and with more confidence. When you are on a diving platform, you can't be distracted by any thoughts, let alone concerns about whether or not you have the necessary equipment to complete your dive. Thus, you will want to make sure that you have all the right equipment in place as supplements to an effective dive.
- Durafirm Three-Meter Diving Stand. The best platform diving equipment is the actual structure you need in order to dive in the first place, and there's no better item than this three-meter diving stand on which to attach the actual diving board. There's a reason that this brand is the best of all manufacturers of diving equipment: because it is the brand that has been used in official Olympics competition for decades. You want this diving stand because it is corrosion resistant, meaning that all the water droplets and climate of the aquatic atmosphere will not cause this piece of platform diving to rust at all.
- Duraflex 16-foot Modified Maxiflex Model "B" Diving Board. Along with your diving stand, you clearly need the actual diving board in order to have some of the essentials you require in platform diving equipment. From the same maker as the diving stand, this type of 16-foot diving board has been used in Olympic competition as well as Pan-American Games for decades. This is a very sturdy board because it's made from aircraft aluminum, so that type of heavy-duty construction means that it will last many years of people jumping off of it, climbing up to it, and then standing on it. If you need platform diving equipment for an outdoor or indoor pool, then this is the board to get.
- 2-Ply Black Rough-Tex. When you have your diving board and your platform diving stand all set up, you still need to make sure that you can actually stand and walk on the diving board without slipping. It won't be pretty slipping and falling when you are a few meters high in the air, so to guard against such unfortunate accidents and potential injuries, you want to outfit your diving board with some nice, old, anti-slip platform surfaces like this Rough-Tex material. Just install it on the surface of the diving board, and you can have the peace of mind needed to focus on your dive.
