1

RINSE YOUR SURFACE MARKER BUOY

It is advisable to thoroughly rinse your SMB after each dive.

To do this, unroll your SMB and simply let it soak in fresh water.
Immerse it in the water, take it out : repeat this 4 to 5 times in succession.
If necessary, lightly rub the surface of the SMB to remove any grains of sand.

2

DRY YOUR SURFACE MARKER BUOY

Drain the SMB, then hang it on a rail with the attachment point and valve facing downwards. Fold the top slightly so that the SMB hangs down on the other side. Fix it with a clothes peg. And let the sun and wind do their work!

When it’s completely dry, carefully fold it and store it in a diving bag in a cool, dry place.
Simple, right?
