I'm currently doing a dive course (BSAC).
I'm totally fine with everything apart from mask clearance! The first time I had to do it, I was fine unless the mask was full/nearly full. But I think it's become a bit of a mental block cos last session I couldn't do it at all!! That is, unless I wasn't being asked to!! When we were doing a different skill and I happened to get a little bit of water trickle in, I could clear it no problem at all.
Are there any tips anyone could give me?! Or is it just a case of practise and staying calm? I've just been practising at home, just by putting a bit of water in from the tap, and I could do it a bit better, but noticed water was trickling down my nose (I wasn't breathing in through my nose) - how can I stop that happening? I'm thinking maybe that was what was happening in the lesson and it was messing it up for me.
