Mask Clearing Drills

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I came across this somewhere.....still cannot believe someone did this...

Trainee divers sometimes have unusual ways of interpreting diving skills. BSAC Advanced Instructor Paul Morley explains:
"I had two novices in a pool. They were both kneeling in front of me, and I did a demonstration of mask-clearing. I looked at the first student and he did it fine; I looked at the second one and he got hold of the mask, stretched the strap and let the mask smack back onto his face.
"His mask was filled with water and his eyes were bulging. Then I noticed that the water level was dropping in his mask, but he didn't appear to be doing anything. It was like watching water going down in a cistern, but I couldn't see any bubbles. He cleared his mask but he had this fixed expression, and I gave the signal to surface.
"I got him to the side of the pool and asked: 'Did you do what I think you did?' and he just grunted. I couldn't believe it. He had snorted the water in his mask up through his nose and blown it out through his reg!"

Dear Torbaydiver

Unhappily, this is not that uncommon!

Bet that cleared his sinuses out.

Also, not that I would want to, but I don't think I could do that.

Is that not how you're supposed to do it?

<font color='#000080'>Mary,

That girl Porg is a bad influence on you! I remember that you were a lovely, sweet young woman last time we met and now look at you - just dragging every conversation right into the gutter!

At this rate you'll soon be as depraved as she is!

Good girl!!
