I am NAUI Openwater 1 certified, but it’s been awhile. I grabbed my books to refresh.
As you know, I love water. It’s likely we’ll be interfacing with Cetaceans. I see bliss and insight in our future, in and out of the ocean.
I’ve got a regulator, tank, harness (non BC), weights, mask, flippers and snorkel. Regulator needs a tune up and tank is probably due for hydrostat. I also have a full wet suit (warm water) that’s getting a little rough but could serve. To lighten my load between MI and HI I’d leave my tank and weights behind and buy upon arrival. I am also intrigued by my friend Jason’s recent tales of free diving and his special custom italian wetsuit that keeps him toasty in ice water. Probably overkill in HI but I do like to be warm. I’d really like go farther with my free diving on Desire, especially if I’ve got an underwater camera rig.
