Shorty Skillz Dive

Jen B. came and met me at Centeen, for a skillz dive!

I stayed in my drysuit, from the previous dive, and we got our gear together. I had had a bit of a flood, but I’m pretty sure it’s because I was due to lube my TiZip!

We dropped into the basin, worked on finning techniques, valve drills, s-drills, smb drills, and played around the big log.

We took our time, coming up the wall, and back in.

Since we were doing skills, I left the camera behind. We did still have fun, and it was nice to enjoy the warm water!

Bottom Time: 47 mins.
Max. Depth: 26′
Water Temp.: 69F

Since my awesome friend isn’t too fond of being in the spotlight, I will be completely evasive in this post.  🙂

So… I have this friend, who has been out of the water for a while, thanks to higher education. Yes, she is a smarty pants, and she had to take some time off, in order to get through the torture that was schooling. Whatever the case, it was really great to have her back in the water, and I was honoured that she would choose me, to be her buddy.

We met at Centeen Park, since it is an easy place to ease back into things. We put gear together, and in we went! Once we got sorted out, and dropped into the basin, it was smooth sailing. I brought a stage along with me, since I was doing another dive, after this one.

Yeah… I think you’ve still got it, lady…

We took our time, swimming in the shallows, and checked out the sculptures.

Yep… You got this…

We then went for a tour, around the wall, looked at some rocks, swam back around, and came in.

We did a nice, slow ascent, up the rocks, and in.

Bottom Time: 50 mins.
Max. Depth: 33′
Water Temp.: 69F

My friend, it was really great to be in the water with you, again! w00t w00t!
