    Camaro D1 Hybrid XL Drysuit with all accessories

    The diver is 5'11" and 190 lbs and it fits very well. I think anybody from 5'9" to 6'2" and 180 to 220 is a candidate for it. I haven't looked at the size chart but I would describe the cut as 'medium' personally. It fits me and I'm 5'9" and 215

    Camaro D1 Hybrid XL Drysuit with all accessories

    The suit has maybe 20 dives on it, it's like brand-new. If you're not familiar, it's a $3500 drysuit that has everything standard - it has two thigh pockets (expandable), integral boots, a unique integrated undergarment system (undergarment is removable and lighter garments can be used), a...

    You ROCKED it last year on black Friday. I got some awesome deals on stuff. I was just waiting to see what you're going to to this year! I'm in the market, but if you won't tell me, I'm not gonna tell you......

    Dive Op from Lahaina? Ed Robinsons? Diving West vs. South Maui?

    Nothing wrong with using Ed, especially from Makena (which is very close to Kihei, and the boat ramp, maybe 10 minutes at the most). I would try B and B instead if you'd like a little supervision. Let B and B know, they'll be happy to accomodate. I imagine Ed would too, but honestly, for...

    Piranha Dive Mfg Clearance Sale

    and it was great. You refunded me some freight, it got here quick, you gave me a link to the shipper, all around a great experience. I do have one question, maybe others do too, and that's why I'm posting it here instead of the usual e-mail - re: the Tiara masks. You mentioned they accept...

    Maui late Aug and early Sept?

    They go out before the butt-crack of dawn and I'm back at the cabana with a cold beer in my hands, with sand all over the bathroom and the gear soaking in the bathtub before lunch:rofl3: The maids must love us divers at the GW. Gear spread out all over the lanai, a trail of water from the...

    Maui late Aug and early Sept?

    I have a membership at the Grand Wailea, and use Lahaina Divers for my Lanai dives and the Carthaginian because of the size of the boats (I get seasick easily). B and B Scuba is a great operation. They leave out of Kihei boat ramp very early, it's not far at all from GW (maybe 5 minutes -...

    Crappy Dive Boat on Maui Hawaii

    That was never truer than in Maui. I've never been to another place that had more hand-holding on boats (all of them) in my life. It was a big thrill once for me to have more air than anybody else (along with my son) and the dm to "allow" us to stay on the bottom for 3 whole extra minutes by...

    Scuba Diver Dies Off the Coast of Point Loma - San Diego 6 I'm not familiar with the operation - and was this a group trip from here?

    the only and only gratuitous bump - anybody know about Curly?

    I'm looking for a captain who just moved to HI

    His nickname is "Curly", and he likely is either a hand or a captain of a dive boat somewhere in HI. He was captain of a Truth Aquatics boat in Santa Barbara, CA until recently. I'm coming to Maui in May and it would be epic if I wound up on a boat with him. Anybody know of this guy? Young...

    Maui Dive op experience

    I think that's a great theme to have. I would recommend to you a refresher course every time, if you're rusty. Never rush, and develop a "checklist" that you use. I prefer to pack for a trip from toe to head (fins, boots, wetsuit, belt, weights, bc, reg, mask, etc) but i prefer to check from...

    Had a great time. Lots of divers, Leo as usual did a great job with the service, Loren was an excellent server. Plenty of people, like old home week. See you all next month, if you're new and want to come, just introduce yourself like you've been coming for years.

    In Water Recompression?

    but only if you get back in the water within (IIRC) five minutes of surfacing. You would follow a protocol to retrace your deco stops. Additionally, If you've taken a neurologic hit you're going to be incapacitated by definition. You'd need help, to say the least. Third, 100% 02 at 30FSW...

    Maui Dive op experience

    Breathing Water Really Ain't Fun... I specifically use B and B with my kids because of their attention and fun quotient. I'm a DM and a former skydiving instructor, and teach young kids how to referee ice hockey. I know how to deal with kids (and adults) in pursuits with danger involved...

    Man O Wars today at Kamaole II

    and MAN, was it brutal. I never saw the tentacle, obviously, but it wrapped around my ankle. I got it off, poured real hot water over it (but it was fresh, which is the best I could do) and then shaved it and washed it well. It took a long, long time for it to stop itching, like three weeks...

    Man O Wars today at Kamaole II

    in Wailea, on the beach by the Grand Wailea. They absolutely PUNISHED a little kid that got tangled up with them, and mom decided to dunk the kid in the pool (cool, fresh water, ugh!) because he was screaming so much. Just for the sake of argument (or to clarify and provoke discussion, to...
