Hi.... will be going to Penang this June on a non-diving, family trip. Do anyone knows of any Dive Shop on Penang Island that sells lots of dive gears. Always looking to get some new stuff....  ;D

  • There is a dive/ fishing shop call hobi sport. I do not have the address but u can goggle it. They were having a sale when I was there last year. Bought a mares gloves 3mm for s$15 only! The fins there are less than s$50 ! But did not manage to buy any coz dun have my size. Bought a mares bootie for s$25 . It's actually a fishing shop but the 2nd level sell all dives stuff. Their mares 3mm wet suit is s$90. But not sure what's their stock like now coz I was there late last year.

  • They sell torches there too but not sure if it's the brand ur looking for?  U can go to http://www.tce-sports.com/hobi-sports.html for the address and contact number. Although they have 2 shop in Penang. Only 1 sells diving equipment. Good Luck!

  • Already found them by Google... but you are right, they don't have the torch I want. Kind of $$$$ to get it here ($120+)....  :'(
