    SCUBA - акваланг (aqua lung)

    Dry suit - сухой костюм (гидрокостюм)

    Wet suit - промокаемый (мокрый) костюм

    Buoyancy Compensator - компенсатор плавучести

    First stage regulator - регулятор первой ступени (не уверен)

    Decompression sickness - кессонная болезнь

    Nitrogen Narcosis - азотный наркоз

    Enriched Air Nitrox (or Nitrox) - Нитрокс (так и будет) или обогащённый воздухом нитрокс

    Surface - поверхность (поверхность воды)
    (as in the surface of the water from the perspective of the ocean floor)

    i.e. "I was low on air so I had to return to the surface."[/quote]

    У меня было мало воздуха и мне пришлось вернуться на поверхность (или просто всплыть)
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    sometimes we also call it би-си-ди (BCD, buoyancy control device)

    correct.

    Decompression sickness - кессонная болезнь
    in the Russian translation of PADI manuals you may come across декомпрессионная болезнь, but I guess кессонная is more correct Russian

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Я читал, что "кессонная болезнь" это разновидность "декомпрессионых заболеваний", к которым относятся вообще заболевания, связанные с перепадами давления (в том числе в горах и под водой).

    Yeah, we call it the same. I usually just shorten it to "B C".

    Correct! It is like opening a bottle of beer. When the lid comes off the bubbles of carbon dioxide are released from the beer into the air and surrounding area.
    When an underwater diver comes to the surface too quickly the same thing happens to him, only the gas that is released is Nitrogen (from the pressurized air he has been breathing), which will form bubbles in his blood and under his skin. For this reason a diver must ascend to the surface no more than 9 meters per minute. This gives time for the Nitrogen to stay in solution while it is being released from the tissues and blood.
    You don't want to become an uncorked bottle of champagne!

    PS Does anyone know of any dive sites in Russia. Are their popular places for divers to go. Perhaps the Black Sea?
