My dry suit

Finally!

I got my dry suit back from repair (Zipper replacement). It took more than a month but Oceanic Australia sent me a free hat and key ring for the delay, good on you Oceanic!

Anyway I went for a dive today for a trim and weight check, I took my camera but didn’t use much and no-good photo.

I was bit confuse. I was using the Apollo Neoprene Dry Suit for the DSAT Tec Level One course and I needed 5kg weight with near empty twin tank. Today I had same weight and I thought I might be able to lose 1kg because my suit is tri-laminate suit but no, I even need one more kg. mmmhh why???. Even trim has changed which I was expecting. I need to adjust my harness for setting the back plate lower.

I hope this works. I might try on Sunday again so I will be ready for the rest of Tec Deep Course starting next weekend.

DSAT Tec Deep Program

Hey Guys!

It’s been raining for some time now and didn’t do much so no photos.

I have started the DSAT Tec Deep Course last week.

We had some academic session and Tec gear configurations on Wednesday and Friday night and dives on weekend.

Saturday, 2 dives

Dive one; Max depth 3.7 m for 62 minutes

Dive two; Max depth 4.6 m for 76 minutes

Sunday, 3 dives

Dive one; Max depth 3.7 m for 46 minutes

Dive two; Max depth 3.7 m for 55 minutes

Dive three; Max depth 4.3 m for 80 minutes

During all the dives we were required to hover horizontally all the time.

I thought I am pretty good on trim in the water but wasn’t good enough.

Skills were mainly Hover, Gas shut down drills, decompression and stage cylinder handling, Gas sharing exercise and gas switch procedures. The mastery for technical diving course was deferent from usual recreational diving course you will keep doing until your body remembers it.

Our Instructor is great. He dose push your limit so I got frustrated/annoyed by him but it made a deferent on my skill mastery and realised how much I got better. Hmmmuuuu he is good.

Now I got muscle ache on my back from horizontal positioning underwater and shoulder from gas shut down drills. I hope I will fully recover before this weekend for more torture.
