Re: Video of 72M (236') no fins dive

It just looks that way since there is no reference. I'm sure he moved at least 6 meters in that 10 second period.

Sweet dive man.

Re: Masks that are actually anti fog

You just need to clean the mask - try the lighter method suggested above.

Regardless of how tight the mask is, there will be warm air coming out of your nose to equalize the mask on decent.

Re: HELP!!! Carbon fins Warped!

You sure it wasn't like this when you got it? Most manufactures have some slight "warping" in their carbon. You won't notice it in the water.

All leaderfins are the same shape and all stingray pocket sizes are the same depth in which the blade goes into the pocket. They were simply installed wrong.
