    I have a well-known-brand-mtm-suit with a front entry zip. It leaked after a few dives. Spent ages fiddling with/swapping out dump valves. Turned out to be the zip.

    I think you'll find that dir-style rigging for stages isn't compatible with how you'd want to sidemount them. Obviously depends how you do it, though. But you wouldn't want clips or rigghing on a...

    It's really warm in the water - maybe 28 degrees - but cold-ish on the surface. There used to be a bcd and an empty tank wedged under a rock a short way into the cave - chilling reminder!. I think...

    Years ago I dived in the cueva del agua with Sergi who owned Rivemar dive centre. He's a nice guy. Don't know if he still owns it. Worth visiting Cabo de Palos. Some wrecks and popular scenic dives.
