Today’s dive was just to get in the water and play around with skills, while Eric tested out his new TLS.

We did our predive checks, modified valve drills, and modified S drills, then dropped down to sort ourselves out. We made our way over to the plane, where Steve and I demonstrated full valve drills and S drills, as well as various finning techniques.

Eric was checking his buoyancy in his new suit, which seemed to be smooth sailing.

We goofed around a bit, then headed back in. We doffed our gear, then got back in the water, with just our drysuits on. Our goal was to demo the back fin on the surface, and for Eric to practice it. This was the first time that I had done it this way, and we did have quite a bit of fun with it.

Bottom Time ~ 25 mins.
Max. Depth ~ 23′
Water Temp. ~ 59 (Ahhh…. 5mm gloves)
Visibility ~ 30′

Here is a before and after:

Congratulations, Eric, and good luck with your upcoming course!!
