#askmark hi mark, when ascending and holding at the 3m mark I’m having to kick to stay there, does this mean I’m overweighted

Cheers

It could be. The best thing to do is a full weight check with a buddy to work out just how little lead you need.
At the end of a dive when you have plenty of time, you’re in shallow water and you only have about 50bar in your tank. Empty your BCD completely and see if you can hover just under the surface. If you sink, you’re carrying too much lead.
Take one block out at a time and hand it to your buddy until you can comfortably hover just under the surface. That should be all the lead you really need

My buddy when just got his OW used to empty the gas tank a lot faster when he dives with a camera. His air usage only get better after some 40 dives or so.

on a hot day i put my wetsuit on and then get wet before getting on the boat. i’d buy a mask, fins and dive boots(to walk on corrally shore lines) first so even if you aren’t diving you can snorkel with your own equipment
nice tips

Something I see a lot of both new and experienced divers do, and have probably done myself numerous times, is hanging out at the back of the boat and messing with gear whilst other divers are still coming back on board. It’s best to take off your BCD, do the bare minimum you need to do, and then move out of the area for awhile so other divers have room to do the same. Especially after the last dive of the day, people start a full disassembly and pack up, and block other divers from even sitting to take their tank off. It’s never fun to have to ask someone to move their fins so you can sit at your spot, some divers can be really cranky after a dive, but priority needs to be given to the person who still has a tank on their back.

Agree 100%! Does the avid golfer rent clubs every weekend, does the tennis player rent a racquet, does the skier, snowboarder rent their gear every weekend? Buy your own Scuba gear, you will have a much better experience. And don’t forget to support your local Dive Shop!

As for rental equipment: even before your own bcd consider your own wet suit. it’s called wet suit because many divers have wetted it before you.

I had a friend get certified recently and advised to get everything you’d need for snorkeling before getting a regulator, BCD, etc. Get your own tank last.

Hi Mark. Just returned from Carribean, let me tell you about my moment of embarrassment. 🤣
When we arrived at the dive site, there was a bunch of students on the boat in line to jump in, so I decided to toast my scuba unit overboard and put it on in the water. The only thing i forgot is to put air in BCD, and since it got integrated weight – yeah… i saw it disappear like a titanic. 🤣🤣
While keeping a straight pocker face, I had to do quick skin dive to 14 feet to get my stuff back.
Had a good laugh with captain afterward.
