Competitive diving is when an athlete participates in competitions in the area of springboard diving. There is spring board diving, which is done on either a one meter or a three meter diving board. Then, there is platform diving, which is most commonly done on a five meter, seven meter and ten meter. Diving is a competitive sport practiced in the Olympics, where they do both springboard and platform diving.

Can't tell you, but competitive swimming, from what I've learned started in ancient Egypt. It really only started after competitive diving evolved.
Diving in some form has been around since ancient times. An ancient Roman tomb called "Tomba Del Tuffatore" depicting a scene of a young diver & dating back to 480 BC is the earliest evidence of sport diving. Competitive diving in modern times is most often credited to 17th century acrobats from Germany & Sweden. During the summer months, they would practice outside on the beaches. Acrobatics over the water evolved into "fancy diving" and the competitive sport it is today.
If you want to get a swim suit for competitive swim, i would recommend sports authority or target. they are not too expensive, but will last a while.
Skin diving is any underwater activity done without the use of SCUBA gear, using a mask and flippers, and possibly a snorkel.It includes swimming, spear fishing, free dive photography, competitive breath-hold free diving and other apnea competitions.
It is diving on a high diving board.
In my diving club, there are no members in the US diving at the moment.
Free diving is diving without scuba. Skin diving means diving without a wetsuit or scuba. Since you can free dive without a wetsuit they can be the same thing but they are not necessarily always the same thing.

Not necessarily. Many famous and successful divers took diving up later in life. Children do tend to take to diving more naturally than adults though; for children breathing underwater because a grown up tells them to comes naturally. Some adults really struggle to get comfortable doing it however. If you are young and interested in diving, you should dive because you want to; not because you want to be a great diver. It is not a competitive sport. But it is a lot of fun.
aquatic sports include: competitive swimming (racing) water polo syncronized swimming water aerobics aquafit underwater hockey diving (as in doing difficult flips ect. off a diving board or platform) diving (as in going as deep underwater as possible)
Professional Diving is a type of diving where the divers are paid for their work. Recreational diving or sport diving is a type of diving that uses SCUBA equipment for the purpose of leisure and enjoyment. Military, navy, rescue and police diving courses need to be taken per your division or location. Technical and scientific diving is mainly for research and exploration.

There are scuba diving classes and popular scuba diving areas in Sydney, Australia. Scuba diving clubs are not advertised in that area.
Well, firstly you must seek out an appropriate, genuine diving location. Thus, this allocated location will essentially be a testiment to what diving supplies are needed. Nevertheless, the usually diving apparrel consists of the following: diving masks, snorkels, diving suits, fins, compass, air tank etc. Again the aforementioned apparel is subject to change depending on your diving location and intensity of the dive. Diving supplies can be found at sites like www.scuba.com or www.thediveoutfitter.ca
