Great deal on a dive skin
One of our guests who is going on an upcoming trip just sent me a link to LeisurePro.com. They have the best deal I have ever seen on a full body dive skin: $26.95!!!! It looks like a great skin. I computed the shipping and UPS ground to Moab would be $7.45. Really really a good deal. She also sent a report on it: “Just wanted to update you that the diveskins arrived today- (so fast!) and th
