Keeping warm with a wet suit when scuba diving

If you’re going to be using a wetsuit to keep warm when scuba diving, make sure it fits well.

A loose fitting wet suit will flush too much water and you’ll get cold.

I remember once diving in the U.K. and a guy had this very loose fitting wetsuit that he’d borrowed. I told him he’d be cold and it wasn’t a good idea going down in this wetsuit.

He ignored my advice, which was fine. But I told him he regret his decision.

In only a few minutes from leaving the surface, he returned to the surface from his dive. He was extremely cold, he was shivering and he did come to me and agreed that I was right.

The moral of the story is to listen to someone who has a better understanding of the situation.

Fortunately no harm was done and we all laughed about it, whilst the guy shivered almost uncontrollably.

Learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow...
