It’s very exciting to welcome the Suunto dive team to visit our Downbelow operations, at both our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre and the Dive Shop based at our Kota Kinabalu HQ!

Downbelow’s Managing Director and resident Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann, discusses with Suunto representatives Timo from Finland, as well as LC and Shia from Kuala Lumpur about the popularity of Suunto amongst our local scuba diving community in Kota Kinabalu and Sabah.

Even more exciting topics of discussion are the future dive products Suunto are planning and the ways to promote them, as well as the presence of the highly reputable brand in our new premises! The space of our current retail space is recognised as the largest Dive Shop in Malaysia, and that record will be broken soon (by none other than ourselves!) with the opening of our new HQ very soon!

Many of our professional scuba diving internship candidates, enrolling to qualify as PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors, invest in the Suunto dive brand from our shop to ensure they meet the standards of diver safety for their student divers, as well as for themselves. And they will find any Suunto product reliable throughout their professional dive training on our award-winning PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC), and for many years to come in their instructional careers too!

For more information on the Suunto dive brand products we stock at our KK Dive Shop, contact our experienced and helpful Supervisor Karen!
