    Hey, Divers!

    If there are sidemount divers, or anyone interested in SM, Let's share some information. I and my friend just set up the plan to go Millbrook this Sunday. We'll be at Beach #1 around 9 to 10am.

    And any divers are welcome to join us.

    Daehag.

    I am interested in learning more about sidemount diving. I had planned to be at Millbrooke on Sunday. I usually dive from beach 2 where there are less classes but will I will try to make a stop by beach one.
    Thanks

    It was beautiful day for diving. And the viz was so good to lose your buddy.:wink:

    The writer of "Beyond the Deep"-Barbara Am Ende and Member of NACD Committee- Marius Clore, and Jason and his daughter showed up at Millbrook.

    The divers using Sidemount rigs, good and clean trim, you may find some valuable idea with the photos. Enjoy!

    Was it good viz? It wasn't to me at all. Normally camera can see better than human eye.

    That weekend was strange. The vis in some areas was better than I have seen it all year, but in others it was horrible!!

    last weekend it was horrible and then it went to zero with a class trying to figure out how to use a lift bag. Just from watching on the surface post dive, I formed the opinion they could have benefitted from some useful instruction.

    I always find it interesting to watch students trying to use a lift bag for the first time. Generally, on their knees on the bottom, with their fins continually moving. So they will not sink in the silt I guess!!
