TIPS FOR GETTING YOUR SCUBA DIVING SUIT ON

OUR TIPS TO PUT YOUR SCUBA DIVING SUIT ON

1

USE A PLASTIC BAG

When you put your leg in your diving suit, does it stick around your foot, particularly over the heel ? No point pulling: neoprene is designed to resist! Instead, try putting your foot in a plastic bag beforehand. Test it out - put your leg in your suit... your foot will slide right through ! Just let it slide, like on your surf board ! Do the same with your other leg and then your arms as well if necessary.

BLOW TO MAKE IT EASIER TO GET YOUR ARMS IN YOUR DIVING SUIT

Once you've got your diving suit on, you'll want to be able to adjust it giving you complete freedom of movement. Ask someone else to help you by blowing into your sleeve, from the wrist. The air will inflate the neoprene suit and unstick it from your skin for an instant. It's then easy to make some last-minute adjustments and changes.

IF YOU HAVE A SEMI-DRY SUIT...

To put on a semi-dry suit, you will need the help of your partner to be able to close the back zip. In addition, it is essential to put water in your suit to avoid feeling the squeeze effect during your descent, in other words, the crash of neoprene due to the infiltrated air in your suit when donning which compresses under the effect of pressure.

                  The buoyancy compensator or buoyancy control device, called a "BCD" in diver-speak, plays more than one role in the water: it keeps the tank on your back, helps you adjust your buoyancy, helps you to get back to the surface effortlessly and even keeps you up there. Check out our simple and practical guide that will help you choose your buoyancy compensator.
