Dry Suit Certification

  In October of 1999, I (Dave) gained my dry suit certification by taking two dives at Canoe Beach, in Nahant, MA.

This was quite a pretty site.

  This day I learned that diving in a borrowed dry suit can be rather uncomfortable, as it isn't adjusted to fit you.  In fact, it was like being strangled, and I was hoarse for several days.  It might explain how comfortable I look in these photos.  First, you get in the dry suit underwear, this is quite comfortable.

 


Then you suit up.  The cap really adds something, doesn't it?


At this point I am really suffering, and can't wait to get in the water.

Once I was underwater, I could mostly forget about the dry suit.

 After certifying, I bought  a custom dry suit, which is much more comfortable.
