    Lovely vid. Interesting to notice that everyone is diving a short hose primary. Is that a normal configuration for tech or was it a team choice?

    60 and 65 meters are very deep for a 20/30 mix.

    Three of the divers had longhose configuration, but this was the gear setup we had for the week, if we were to dive caves / overhead a longhose would be required in case of air sharing.

    Thanks for the reply, no criticism intended. Just curious as to what configurations people use.

    The O2 partial pressure was still above 1.6, but yes it is borderline :wink:
