I’ve been diving with Jörg at the Bunkeranlagen Immenstaad. Here are some videos made with this camera: Warning, you might have to login with your Google account in order to view the videos. But, the interesting part was that I forgot to take my suit that I have to wear below the drysuit (to keep me warm). This massively changed my buoyancy and I had too much lead (~2KG too much). Useless to say that I needed to fight a lot with the weight and that I used my jacket to control the descent and ascent. Phew… what a beginner’s error… 🙁 PS: I am the one filming, the one that is being filmed is Jörg. This is also the reason why the video is so shaken.

And it is done ! I am officially certified. The second and last dive in open water was much better than the first one. It has been really, really nice and I actually enjoyed diving with drysuit. We went 8m deep to feel a bit more the suit’s squeeze 🙂 And the cold … 🙂 This was before the dive… already sweating. This time no water in the suit, just a lot of sweat. Oh… and the weather… foggy, no sun, 14 degrees in the air, 8 in the water.

I started to make the course Padi Dry Suit Diver with Jörg of ScubaDo. I got a great offer from Tauchschop-online.de for a ScubaPro Everdry 4 Dry Suit . I can say one thing: Dry Suit diving is not easy 🙂 It takes some experience to control the buoyancy because you can’t use the jacket. From time to time, air gets in the feet and you need to roll over to get it out. Well, part of the course is to be able to deal with such situations. You need to make sure that you have the right amount of lead. If you don’t find the right weight you will get very easily too much air in the suit, which increases the possibility to get air in the feet. And then the “fun” begins 🙁 If the suit is not set up correctly, you get wet. This was my case in the first dive… A lot of water entered through the neck. The temperature was 7 degrees Celsius. 🙁 Overall, you are carrying much more equipment because You have more lead The suit is much heavier than the semi-dry one But, overall, it is fun to dive with dry suit… You learn new stuff 🙂 Oh, we went diving in the Malereck in Langenargen.
