I would too, I like Heli's. The feel is completely unlike that of a plane, and you see much more.

I've never seen somebody do that, but it is one of the things they taught me how to deal with in rescue class. Interesting indeed.

I myself only log a dive as deep if it's 100 feet or more, otherwise I consider it shallow for dive log purposes. It's a check box on the Oceanic software and that's how I decide to check it.

You can buy a VT3 without transmitter and it's quite a bit cheaper if you do it that way, similar to the deal here except you still get the download cable and software.

How do you play under water hockey? I know with a drysuit you can go under the ice and inflate and have your feet stuck to the bottom of the ice, you can walk after a fashion. But hockey? I'd...

I would venture a guess and say your next advanced class will be the Rescue Diver Class. AOW is hit or miss on what it's teaching, but Rescue is pretty involved and definitely more advanced.

There are times it's a good idea, and times it's not. I need a second first stage for my H valve on the tank but I don't need another second stage so for that situation buying only one works for me....

You mean to tell me you don't sweat? I have during the Summer sweated enough to get the suit so wet you'd think it was a leak. 100 degree's will do that you know.

I myself don't find it hard to avoid the face plant, as others have said it's because theres too much air in the BC. In fact, if you watch divers all over the place they ALL have too much air in the...

It's a lake fit for boats and little else. Vis isn't what I'd call horrible with reports of it being as great as 2 feet. Not bad for looking for lost items near boat docks, but it can be dangerous...

Sniped a few things.

First, no I did not have any weight on my beyond the plate for that dive.

The reason is for that gear config there simply is no way for me to have weight I can ditch. I...
