GOUMBA 360 Dive Flag Showcased At Blue Wild Expo

Having a dive flag that droops listlessly on a windless day doesn’t do a good job of warning people there are divers in the water.

The folks at Boca Raton, Florida-based BuyDiveFlags.com came up with a solution that they showed off at this past weekend’s Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The company showcased its GOUMBA 360 Dive Flag — a three-paneled flag mounted on a pole that spins in the wind, allowing boaters to see the flag from any angle.

Company founder Michael Greenfield told DeeperBlue.com that the flag was named after his son D’Artagnan who helped in the product’s development. “Goumba” is D’Artagnan’s nickname.

The flag has reflective coating and glows at night. It retails for US$139 and comes with a three-year warranty. For more information, check out the company website at buydiveflags.com.
