Diving is a wonderful journey! Nevertheless, it is likewise a visual experience. If you cannot see plainly, you are missing the very best component of diving. Find a scuba diving mask that fits as well as prepare it appropriately for diving as well as you will certainly be a life long participant.
The most vital factor to consider when looking for a diving mask is healthy. If the diving mask doesn’t fit it won’t matter how fashionable it looks or that it has the most up to date incorporated modern technology. The bottom line is if the scuba diving mask doesn’t fit properly you will be getting rid of the diving mask continuously throughout your dive and also miss out on all the amazing destinations.
Allow me inform you a fast story to show my factor. My better half Sheila and also I went to Fiji in 2014 on a scuba diving and relaxation experience. My wife had never been diving in the ocean, nevertheless, had actually heard the tales from other diving divers as well as myself around exactly how fantastic ocean scuba diving is. As we anxiously waited to get in the water for our initial dive I can see Sheila was excited regarding the new exotic world she was about to see.
As we came down though a college of thousands of barracuda towards a reefs wall teaming with fish as well as shade a broad smile glided across my face. I recognized that if Sheila was seeing just what I was seeing she would certainly be hooked on scuba diving and my life long buddy would likewise be my life long diving buddy. As I looked into to Sheila completely meaning to see the same smile that I had actually glued across my face, I saw right here scuba diving mask was half packed with water and she was having to get rid of the diving mask often. Not only was the diving mask requiring frequent clearing, when she wasn’t getting rid of the diving mask, the lens seemed foggy.
We finished the scuba dive as well as every person on the boat was active discussing exactly how terrific Fiji scuba diving is. I asked Sheila exactly what she thought? She claimed she wasn’t that amazed with sea scuba diving. I informed her that I really did not doubt that her experience wasn’t excellent due to the fact that whenever I looked at her she was either removing her scuba diving mask or the lens were all fogged up. I marvelled she can see anything.
I convinced Sheila to attempt once more as well as we where able to locate a diving mask that fit her as well as we also prepared the lens to ensure that they wouldn’t mist up. Our second dive was as spectacular as the first and this moment Sheila can see exactly what everybody was so thrilled regarding. Sheila as well as I went on to have a wonderful week of scuba diving and Sheila is busy now discussing our next trip the sea.
The moral of this tale is to make certain you pick a diving mask that fits and also is correctly planned for scuba diving. Sheila chose her scuba diving mask based upon style and also color. Like numerous new scuba diving divers Sheila didn’t comprehend just how essential mask fit is to the pleasure of the dive.
How can individuals locate a mask that fits? The very best solution is to begin by consulting a specialist scuba diving diver that has experience in fitting individuals with the ideal scuba diving masks. I have actually been fitting people with masks for over 30 years. Via experience and item expertise, I have actually developed the ability to consider a scuba diving divers face as well as recommend a diving mask with the right fit. The most effective ‘on face’ test is to look up at the ceiling as well as place the scuba diving mask on your face. Breathe in through the nose and also the scuba diving mask need to secure as well as pull into your face. If air is dripping between the scuba diving mask skirt as well as your face chances are you don’t have a great fit.
How about those problem of lens fogging? What can be done to address this problem? Lens could mist for a number of reasons. One of the most common reason is that people do not prepare the scuba diving mask for scuba diving after acquisition. Most scuba diving masks originate from the manufacturing facility with a silicone spray finish the lens. This layer makes the scuba diving mask look new as well as glossy from the box. Nonetheless, this coatig must be eliminated prior to utilize or you will certainly get fogging. You can buy a mask/slate cleaning product designed to clean up the lens of a mask. Your scuba diving mask could also obtain an accumulate with time from the water as well as may have to be cleaned usually depending upon use. I highly urge any brand-new scuba diving mask proprietor to tidy there mask with this sort of product before utilizing the scuba diving mask for the very first time. I recognize that Sheila would certainly advise this too.
A second reason scuba diving masks fog is that individuals don’t use defog service prior to diving. The defog service is different than the diving mask cleaner. The defog solution need to be related to the scuba diving mask prior to each scuba diving dive.
An additional factor worth keeping in mind is fogging occurs when scuba divers breathe out continuously via there nose. The majority of people do not even recognize that this happening. If you have actually cleaned you scuba diving mask and have actually used a defog remedy prior to diving and also you are still obtaining fogging, ask you pal to enjoy you to see if you are breathing out via your nose.
Make your following dive much more delightful! Select the appropriate mask, clean it and also prepare it properly. Pleased Diving!
