    Thanks a lot! My friend says that then the raspberry she heard must have been the air coming out. But probably the fact that it was so long and so loud means too much air had already been expanding...

    Is it dangerous if she doesn't do it? Is the difference of pressure in one direction dangerous, but not in the other? I cannot help her there, because I don't notice anything strange when ascending.

    Oh, this changes everything. I've already told my friend about this, and she says she always expected the Valsava manoeuvre to cause a pop, like when swallowing (in my own case, it does, so that's...

    Thanks a lot for all your help!

    My friend doesn't think she has any physiological problem preventing her from equalising, since it immediately happens when she swallows. But since she says she...

    @ebt, thanks for mentioning the Fresnel method, which neither of us had heard about before. I've read an explanation on how it should be done, and it seems awfully complicated, but maybe some more...
  6. What to do if the Valsava manoeuvre doesn't work?

    Hello everybody,

    I am writing to ask you something on behalf of a friend who has found a problem during her OWD course, and doesn't know what to do. The instructor (the same as that from my own...

    I haven't got any suit of my own yet, and I was planning on buying the BCD before the (semi-dry)suit, because I'm finding it more difficult to adjust to different hired BCDs than to different suits,...

    How should I dress when trying a new BCD on?

    I'm sure this must have been asked before, but nothing has turned up in the search I've performed. If there's some other thread related to this, just redirect me there!

    I've decided to buy myself...

    Thanks for your answers! @Nickpicks, yes, my idea is to have a single fountain pen devoted to diving, but the problem is -I think- that waterproof inks make pen maintenance much more necessary, as...
  11. Anyone who uses a fountain pen for their dive logs?

    I've searched the forum for information on this, but I haven't found anything. If there already was a thread devoted to this topic, please direct me there and forgive for the inconvenience.

    Yes, I'm afraid I already noticed it. I've never considered myself fat, though I know I am a bit overweight. But the rash guard made me feel like a whale. I wonder whether something similar to what...

    I was thinking of the Hollis Neotek, which is the only one I've tried. It's the one I was wearing when the photo above was taken, and I was very comfortable in it. And almost dry.

    Thanks for the info! That sort of encourages me. If I was all right temperature-wise, that will probably mean I'll also feel OK in winter with some thermal protection under the semi-dry suit. I'm...

    Thanks a lot! It's great to know what it was. Knowing that it didn't provide lots of thermal protection but I didn't feel any cold, I think that a thermal vest will be good enough for colder days /...

    Thanks a lot for your helpful answers! If it's the old Mares rash guard, do you know whether it came in different thicknesses, as smileydiver says? Or did this specific model come in only one? I know...

    What sort of undergarment is this?

    I'm on the process of trying as much equipment as I can before moving on to buying my own. Since I intend to dive a lot in the Mediterranean, I was considering the possibility of buying a semi-dry...

    Great piece of information! As Dave1w says, it's a great solution when trying to read your computer in an emegency. I will try it during my next dive.

    Is it normal to see this badly underwater?

    I know it's impossible to have clear vision when not wearing a mask underwater. I had always assumed everybody saw the same I see: nothing at all. But during one of my dives I saw someone lose his...

    Cutting my toenails is getting more and more troublesome. I was never too flexible, but age is playing havoc with me.

    Ears sensitive to noise, pain and diving

    I have very sensitive ears. I work in a noisy environment (a school), and now and then, on one of those days when students are especially restless and I must shout to make myself heard in the din, I...
