from article:


ScubaToys pulled in more than $5 million in revenue last year and is forecasting $6 million this year, says founder and president Larry Dague.



That's a pretty bold forcast... 20% sales increase in scuba gear while we are in a recession?

seems far reached... but I hope they make it.


Leisure Trends reports that the scuba industry will be flat this year. (Meaning no percentage increase in sales). However, the online scuba industry is expected to increase by 30%. (which will have to come from somewhere, such as sales that would have gone to brick-n-mortar-only shops).

So it's highy possible. would be interesting to see the result reported by Larry at the end of the year.

That's odd... Scubatoys started under the name 2dive4? My LDS has their website hosted at 2dive4.com....
