Re: Now I know why no one Freedives here

Who got the flag laws passed? Divers. Who pays the State and Feds to use the water ways? Boaters
Who is the Safety priority? Boaters. Kind of a golden rule thing, except those who pay the gold get the benefit of the rules.

Re: Equipment Warning

It will all end when people stop ordering HOT coffee and spilling it on themselves and then complaining the coffee was HOT.
A responsible person wouldn't sue Mcdonald's, they'd take the life lesson that HOT coffee is HOT and be more careful in the future.

Mongo, that just might be an idea if I knew anything about the garment industry. I learned my lesson, I do a patdown for pens and notebooks before I get into my drysuit now. Since there's been so many suggestions for custom, any feedback about which manufacturer is the most customer friendly for cus...

Don't touch any UXO (unexploded Ordinance) and remember where it was and take pictures so it can be reported, was part of every dive brief I received or gave in Okinawa. Didn't think UXO would be a local condition to be aware of here.

However they usually turned them into the ammunition amnesty point on bas...

big guy drysuit undergarments

I've been searching and trying on undergarments for sometime now, with no luck in finding one that fits.
Anybody else out there 6'4" 250lbs or bigger that have found undergarments that fit? If you have please share.
