Komandoo Day 8 – The Mask29 Jan 2011
Well, not the Jim Carrey one, but the diving mask instead. Clearing the mask underwater is “the exercise” to master. Is the A on the Alphabet. Every diver should be master in clearing the mask.
Remember: A mask clearing a dive keeps the fear away and the confidence alive. So our suggestion here is that you should practise that every dive. Why not?
Several problems like, equalization difficulties, reverse blockages, foggy mask, dislodged mask, etc can be fixed by removing your mask underwater and proceeding accordingly.
It is really important to be 100% confident with that and also, remember not to tight the mask strap too much! Otherwise you will be wearing the mask mark on your face for the rest of the day…!
