Slime Star?

I've been calling these cushion stars, but the closest match I can find are the Slime Stars. Is this one?

Re: Labor Day Weekend

How was your dive Glenn & Cameron? Did the drysuit fit? Keystone was crazy beautiful!! Hope to dive with you guys soon! It was great! 3 GPOs and zillions of shrimp (are they looking at us? I think they're looking at us. It's like we had an audience of 100,000 shrimp, all evenly spaced apart and sta...

Re: Labor Day Weekend

60south, I'll be on the peninsula tomorrow, so if you don't mind a hang along, I'd love to dive with you. Also, if you bring the dry suit, maybe I could give it a test dive for any leaks? Sure thing! Confirmed we're 'go' for meeting at 11am, Pt Whitney. I drive a white Tacoma. Will bring the drysui...

Re: Fort Flagler

We dove this site again yesterday... and it was great. No, really. It's a shame the pier is gone but there's still a lot of life out at the fish havens (concrete structures). Vis was 25+. Max depth ~55ft. Wolf eels, old bottles, quillback rockfish, sea pens, the works. Lots to explore. It's super se...

I am very interested, but at 6ft 180lb, I'm a little worried about the fit. Where would you say it's short on you?
It's short on the inseam. Torso is plenty long.

Drysuit, Heavy Duty, Men's Large $200

This is a Viking ProAm 1050 drysuit, size Large. Boot size is maybe size 11-12. It's heavy duty, really heavy duty . I bought it as a spare suit from a fire department but decided it's a tad bit too short for me (I'm 5'11", 220lbs). Anyway... It needed a new zipper, so I used it as a practice drysui...

Re: Old Diver, New Area

Welcome to the board!

Go dry. Sooner or later you'll get too cold in a wetsuit and decide to get a drysuit. Might as well just do it from the start. :-)

Where to go on my next dive trip???

NWDC hive mind! I need your ideas. I'm starting to think about my next big international dive trip. Here's the thing... I recently got back from Thailand, which was nice enough, but all the diving was follow-the-divemaster style, and crowded. I cannot take any more of that! I'd like to find someplac...
