    Dive History:
    I have done 350+ dives in drysuit and 300+ of those in side mount configuration: in open water, under ice, in flooded mines, through narrow sumps, in zero visibilty, with decompression gasses, for pay, for fun. I have 150+ overhead dives done, although mostly in mines or under ice. I have done 28 sump dives (a day counts as one) and 27 search and recovery dives. My specialty skill is diving in extremely bad visibility in confined overhead environments.

    Some facts:
    Longest dive: 2h at -3m
    Shortest dive: 50 demanding seconds (a less successful ice dive)
    Longest successful free dive: 57m, no fins
    Shortest unsuccessful free dive: about 65m, no fins, blackout, with safety diver
    Coldest dive: -1C water or -20C surface
    Hottest dive: pH 2,9
    Usual dive: +4C

    Dive Equipment:

    During my third freedive deep inside Swildon's Hole in 2010 I suddenly realized that I really want a S.C.U.B.A.

    Confined zero visibility sumps have been my goal and motivation since the beginning.

    Later I found search and recovery diving and underwater inspection to be rewarding forms of diving, too. Why just swim when you can do some real work?

    These forms of diving have much in common: the visibility is **** if it exists, there are hidden dangers, equipment cost is low, you never know what you will find, and there are no crowds.
