I watched the movie here in Brasil at the theater and liked it allot even though I don't like sad endings. I was a little worried the movie would scare my girlfriend since she is planning on taking her OW course in January after her law school graduation but she liked it as well and she realized that the crazy guys jumping out of helicopters with not much more than a mask and a fin was nothing like rec scuba.
Have you people seen the movie "The Gaurdian" staring Kevin Kostner and Ashton Kutcher. A must see for those who are rescue divers or considering taking a rescue course.
The US Coast Gaurd rescue swimmers are shown with mask on forehead. MOF is definitely not a sign of panicked diver and is a more comfortable position to keep you mask.
Not quite. A panicked diver will push the mask up on forehead, pop the reg out and forget to fill his BC. That is not to say that everyone who pushes the mask up is panicked, but a panicked diver may.
It is also easy to lose a mask with the next wave that comes along. Been there, did that. If you really don't mind risking the rest of your dive day on the chance that the mask won't get swept off, then have at it.
what's the difference of me putting my mask on my forehead(which I usuallly don't)
and putting on the back of my head(which I usually don't) I leave my mask on until I get on the boat, unless I'm ust hangin out bs'ing which I'll pull it down on top of my octo( on the chin)........
