    Took my wife to a DSD and she did the 'Mask On Forehead' She did not seem panicked at all.

    You're welcome

    Mask On Forehead is a sign of distress in guessing she gets rescued first.

    And she is thumbing the dive.

    It's just natural for me to want to put my mask on my forehead as that's where my sunglasses go!

    It's just easier to put my mask around my neck than wrestling it around to the back of my head. Although in my avatar, it's on the side of my head.

    OP, your wife over inflated something. :wink:

    Screw all these threads about Back Plates and Wings, get yourself a integrated "Buoyancy Over-Compensator." :wink:

    :) This picture was just too good to not share! There were plenty of BC comments in the pool on this day.

    I think we found a decent example of someone who would require 37lbs of led.

    I have it on good authority that Over-Compensator requires Re-Compensation with trim weights on D-rings. There's always a downside...
