SCUBA Progress, Session 4

It's become SCUBA blog!

Tonight was session 4, pool session 3. Just two more of these to go! Tonight we did:

  • Entering by just falling backwards into the pool. I think I like this way better than the giant step.
  • More alternate breathing with the octopus. This time we did the whole shebang: out of air, sharing, swim to surface, inflate BCD orally.
  • Swim back and forth while only exhaling. Despite my first session performance, I think I swam just as far as anyone else, thank you.
  • Finally, neutral buoyancy exercises, laying at the bottom of the deep portion of the pool (14').

Actually, the neutral buoyancy exercises were kind of fun, even though I'm not sure I got it down 100%. You lay face down and slowly inflate your BCD until you can "pivot" up and down based on your breathing.

The instructor didn't say anything about my form, so I guess I was OK. What was really interesting was that I could see how a small change in depth affected my buoyancy. If I started going up, I'd just keep getting higher and higher unless I released some air. An obvious result, but still cool when you experience it first hand.

We did other crap too, but it wasn't really memorable or challenging.

Bought this for my husband as a Christmas present. I ended up giving it to him early because he had a very important business trip, and I wanted him to look his

best. He absolutely loved it! He loves the large face, and the weight of the watch. It looks so classy

and sophisticated. It added the perfect frosting on my already gorgeous husband!

The company is already in the middle of transformation business to Europe, which will result the product assortment featuring more fashion and style.
