If you cannot see accurately under water then you are definitely missing out on the most effective part of scuba diving. Discover the best diving mask that fits and prepare it correctly for scuba diving and you will certainly be a life long individual.
The most crucial consideration when buying a scuba diving mask is fit. If the scuba diving mask does not fit it will not matter how fashionable it looks or that it has the most recent incorporated modern technology. The lower line is if the scuba diving mask does not match appropriately you will certainly be clearing the scuba diving mask continually throughout your dive as well as miss all the exciting destinations.
Let me tell you a story that occurred a while ago. My wife Sheila and I went to Fiji in 2013 on a scuba diving and leisure adventure. My other half had never ever been diving in the ocean, however, had listened to the tales from other diving divers and also myself around how fantastic sea diving is. As we anxiously waited to get in the water for our very first dive I can see Sheila was excited regarding the new exotic world she will visit.
As we came down though an institution of hundreds of barracuda in the direction of a coral wall teaming with fish and also shade, a broad smile glided across my face. I knew that if Sheila was seeing just what I was seeing she would be addicted to diving and my life long friend would certainly also be my life long diving companion. As I looked towards Sheila fully meaning to see the very same smile that I had glued across my face, I saw her diving mask was half packed with water as well as she was needing to remove the diving mask regularly. Not just was the diving mask needing regular clearing up, when she wasn’t clearing the diving mask, the lens appeared to be foggy. 🙁 poor Sheila
We completed the scuba diving dive and also every person on the boat was very busy discussing exactly how excellent Fiji diving is. I asked Sheila what she thought? She claimed she wasn’t impressed with sea diving. I told her that I really did not doubt that her experience wasn’t good since every single time I looked over at her she was either removing her scuba diving mask or the lens were all misted up. I was surprised she could see anything.
I persuaded Sheila to try again as well as we where able to discover a diving mask that fit her and also we also prepared the lens to ensure that they wouldn’t mist up. Our second dive was as spectacular as the very first and also this moment Sheila could possibly see exactly what everyone was so excited concerning. Sheila as well as I took place to have a superb week of scuba diving as well as Sheila is active currently discussing our next journey the sea.
The ethical of this tale is to make sure you pick a scuba diving mask that suits as well as is properly prepared for diving. Sheila selected her scuba diving mask based upon style and color. Like many new scuba diving divers Sheila really did not recognize exactly how crucial mask fit is to the enjoyment of the dive.
Exactly how can individuals locate a mask that matches? The best advice is to start by getting in touch with an expert diving diver that has experience in fitting dive newbies with the best diving masks. I have been fitting individuals with masks for over Three Decade. Via encounter and also product expertise, I have actually created the capability to consider a diving divers face and also recommend a diving mask with the appropriate fit. The very best ‘on face’ examination is to look up at the ceiling and also area the diving mask on your face. Inhale via the nose and the scuba diving mask should close and pull onto your face. If air is dripping between the scuba diving mask skirt as well as your face possibilities are you do not have a great fit.
How about those issue of lens fogging? What can be done to fix this issue? Lens can fog for a couple of reasons. The most popular reason is that individuals do not prepare the diving mask for scuba diving after purchase. Most scuba diving masks originate from the manufacturing plant with a silicone spray finish the lens. This layer makes the scuba diving mask look new and shiny from the box. Nevertheless, this coating must be eliminated before using or you will certainly obtain fogging. You can also buy a mask/slate cleaning product made to clean the lens of a mask. Your diving mask can additionally obtain a build up over time from the water and also may have to be cleansed usually depending on use. I highly urge any kind of new diving mask owner to tidy there mask with this sort of product before utilizing the diving mask for the first time. I understand that Sheila would certainly recommend this as well.
A 2nd reason scuba diving masks fog is that individuals do not use defog solution before scuba diving. The defog option is different than the diving mask cleaner. The defog option ought to be put on the scuba diving mask before each scuba dive.
One more reason worth noting is misting happens when scuba diving divers breathe out continually through there nose. Many people do not even realize that this taking place. If you have actually cleaned you diving mask and also have applied a defog solution prior to scuba diving as well as you are still obtaining fogging, ask you friend to watch you to see if you are breathing out via your nose.
Make your following dive a lot more enjoyable! Select the best mask, tidy it and also prepare it properly. Delighted Diving!
