    Peak Performance Buoyancy [PRACTICAL]

    When you can cruise around plucking scallops in 50 feet and place them into
    a sack clipped to your torso with these little darlings reaching up to envelop
    you without making dust and I'm talking where you almost cant see the sand






    I mean much more thicker than these

    Well you pretty well got it down


    Gonna have to get a video for my head

    That is absolutely amazing! On such barren substrate, what ARE they living on? Each other?

    This is a regular migration of spider crabs from Tasmania that happens every year. They move around the bay feeding at various sites, including some of the piers where us divers get to watch them. The sandy area in the video can be full of life, on nights dives I have done there you see a lot of octopus coming out of the sand to feed.

    Holy crap thats a lot of crab :o

    Is that a seasonal thing or something?
    If your face aint numb.. It aint a cold water dive!
    I wonder if periodic short term exposure to risk can decrease your longterm risk of accidents. I hope it does..

    We see the same thing with lobsters out on the sand at the right times of the season.

    The practical side of buoyancy control is the real deal. I like to drop down and pluck golf balls from silty fresh water sites without stiring things up.

    No sequence of classes will make a good diver out of you, if you aren't actively diving and practicing in the meantime.

    My colleague just suggested it might be the mafia body-dump site TSandM, that would explain what they live off?

    That video needs a stick of butter in it to give us a perspective on their size.
