A surface marker buoy (SMB) is a crucial part of any diver’s scuba gear and equipment. These big, inflatable tubes made from brightly colored fabric are used to mark a diver’s location, and may feature reflective materials to make them more visible and easier to spot. Surface marker buoys are inexpensive, but they are very useful and could potentially save the diver’s life; however, this can only be true if you know how to deploy an SMB properly.
