    Bonaire trip - some where else comparable?

    A destination other than Bonaire. A destination place that shared similar characteristics with Bonaire. When I listed what I thought was a “plus” for Bonaire, I meant is there an overall general dive destination other than Bonaire. But in reading all these responses I am getting the jist here...

    Why do you prefer Curaçao?

    Bonaire trip - some where else comparable?

    No doubt Bonaire is beautiful dive destination. On a recent trip, my first to Bonaire, I experienced the following: efficient and organized dive shop (we stayed at Divi), onsite Covid testing, easy walk to restaurants, easy truck rental and cylinder shack next to P lot that was very well stocked...

    Feet Heavy

    Yeah, around top of hips, like pants belt. I recall that tip a few weeks back from you. Didn’t think about pulling out my thicker boots. Will try. Yes - good idea about paying more attention to what little air I have in my bladder and where that bubble is. Thanks again.

    Feet Heavy

    Wanted to give an update. Still struggling with heavy feet. Got this video to show from last week. Basically, I'm zero weight needed for buoyancy in a 5mm or thinner. In this vid I'm in 3mm and cylinders are full. I've added 4 lbs to shoulders. Still not enough it seems. Heck, the unknown air in...

    Feet Heavy

    Used 2 mm. 3 was killing fingers. Works like a charm. Appreciate the protip. Can’t wait to try this out. B1423249-840B-474E-9391-354122427C9F by CPRC posted Sep 6, 2021 at 8:02 PM

    Feet Heavy

    I’m literally spread on counter with webbing, bungee and weights trying this. Family dinner can wait. DO you guys use 2mm or 3mm bungee? Yep, already have a set of positive RK3’s.

    Feet Heavy

    Yep, going to borrow pockets off my other bc and try this. Didn’t even think to ask this question but it makes sense when there is no other sensible adjustment to make. I will also raise my waist belt a bit as I think I’m still a bit low. I recall your advice a while back in my other thread on...

    Feet Heavy

    This is valuable - guys catching my discrepancies and chiseling away at my problem. I noticed yesterday after raising the tank closer to head that my feet heavy issue did not improve. I wasn’t thinking floaty tail so lower it don’t raise it up my back. CLARIFcation - this was happening for me...

    Feet Heavy

    Thank’s for all that. I planned to get video next week. Was just frustrated today and was hoping for miracle advice. But will get a video back here. Other items will clarify. Positive fins - yes. Legs bent at knees - yes, as much as possible. Was using a 2 lb donut weight at the 1st stage. No...

    Feet Heavy

    THis is a feet heavy trim issue…I think. So I’ve got myself down to 0 weight needed for buoyancy with my neutral 80s, 3mm full suit, no gloves or hood, 3mm boots, fins RK3’s that are positively buoyant. I’ve done plenty of weight checks with near empty tanks at the surface and at depth to feel...

    Looking for hands-on SM advice/instruction Cary/Raleigh area.

    Tbone - when you refer to a line attachment to make the connection of bungee to shoulder strap…do you mean something like the video i’m linking to. This guy is actually deleting the “rope” attachment at beginning of video & converting to a tiny piece of bungee as the retainer. Correct me if I’m...

    Looking for hands-on SM advice/instruction Cary/Raleigh area.

    I just realized I confused cam band with bungee a couple posts up. You mentioned shorten my loops 2-3 more inches. I did not mean to refer to cam band. I was in fact referring to the bungees and my concern with going tighter. But i do plan to try it if you think would help more. TO CLARIFY…when...
