5 Watersports Made Better By Waterproof Notebooks

Any-Weather Paper outlines how waterproof notebooks can better water sports like: scuba diving, paddle boarding, sailing, water polo and underwater football

Waterproof paper is produced with compact fibres that are so close-knit they resist the permeation of water ultimately making waterproof paper: tear-resistant, impervious to grease and able to withstand certain chemicals. With all of these factors Waterproof notebooks can simply make water sports better just by their existence, here are a few...

Scuba Diving 

Scuba diving is a mode of underwater diving where the diver uses a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus, which is completely independent of surface supply, to breathe underwater. The breathing apparatus will allow the scuba diver to be hands-free and experience their surroundings. As an amateur scuba diver may only get to experience this once in their lifetime, unfortunately, these memories can fade and crucial details of underwater experiences can be forgotten. This is why scuba diving with a waterproof notebook should be considered. Be sure to take your waterproof stationery down into the ocean with you and note everything that you see, this can allow you to keep it as a memory forever, or even allow you to note what you see and gather a larger knowledge and understanding in the future. If you are more of the artistic type, why not what you see and give yourself the ability to relive the experience for years to come. 

For professional scuba drivers, an underwater notepad is their crucial underwater communication, which can be overlooked. Waterproof note pads can help scuba divers provide their team with important information that can not be expressed underwater through signals. 

Paddle Boarding 

Paddleboarding can be a very peaceful water sport to participate in, with the ability to paddleboard in thousands of beautiful settings across the world. Writing down the beautiful things you see or hear can be an amazing way to remember experiences and make paddleboarding that much better. Whilst the aim of paddleboarding is to stay on the board, a waterproof notebook would be the best way of doing this without the water sabotaging the notes and findings that you make.

A waterproof notebook could also be used to note important contact information. Unfortunately thousands of people every year find themselves in scary situations in the water, whilst they are by themselves. Use a waterproof notebook to store all of your emergency contacts and your medical issues or history that people should be aware of if you are ever injured or in an accident. 

Water Polo 

Water polo is a competitive team sport played in water. The game consists of four quarters in which the two teams attempt to score goals by throwing the ball into the opposing team's goal. The team with the most goals at the end of the game wins the match. Waterproof notebooks and waterproof pens can transform a game of water polo in a few different ways. The first way a waterproof notebook can transform water polo in an amateur game is through keeping score, without it getting the paper soaking wet, and a fair game of water polo is being played. The other way that waterproof notepads can be used to an advantage in water polo is through mapping out a formation or tactics, that all the team can use and read without the paper becoming unreadable after a few members of the team have held it. 


Sailing is a great water sport to take up on your own or as a group, however, it does often require your undivided attention as it is powered by the wind. Therefore it is not surprising that some things can slip your mind when you are sailing, so why not write down your thoughts and ‘to do’ list down. Even better, why don’t you create this list on a waterproof notepad so that it does not get ruined by a splash of water. Be sure to note down where you are going, all the things on your list that you need to do before, during and after your trip. 

Underwater Football 

Underwater football is a two-team underwater sport that shares common elements with underwater hockey and underwater rugby. As with both of those games, it is played in a swimming pool with snorkelling equipment. Waterproof notebooks can work in a similar way to water polo in terms of its use. The notebook can easily be incorporated into the game by keeping track of scores and also noting down tactics. However, within underwater football, it is important that the players can all communicate, which is also another huge advantage of a waterproof notepad within underwater football.
