    OMG! It appears some adults put some jumpers in a pattern. How can I explain this to the children?

    I once saw someone try hitting a reg on a rock underwater to try to stop it leaking. He had a surprised face when it fell to bits. Much to my amusement.

    I also crawl up the last 6m and generally throw in another two-three minutes @ 3m if other people are being picked up. Why wait on the surface if you can wait on the shot or under a bag?

    don't fold it, the neoprene will crease. lay it flat or hang it on a hanger. I leave the zip halfway so if it sticks I can get at the puller more easily.
