I know it's not Friday yet, but...

A manual, for a drysuit? Seriously?

1. Remember to connect direct feed before jumping in.
2. Press button on chest to inflate.
3. Leave auto dump all the way open at all times unless on the surface...
4. To dump, salute with left hand and roll onto right hip.
5. Don't have shit trim.
6. Buy one that fits or go home.
7. Only ever put enough air in to take the squeeze off.

Job jobbed - £20 please!

Believe it or not, I've done the course and got the cert card already but WITHOUT the manual! Been taught less than the instructions you listed above!
How dodgy was the course! So wanna just read the manual and see if I've missed out on anything! Lol

have you watched the video? thats a good laugh too my drysuit course involved "put it on jump in, have a play arround" this was in a 6m diving pit after a hour and a bit in it i came out soaked to the bone from a bad neck seal, it then took about 20 dives until you feel truly confident with it.
I dont understand why people use a drysuit for buoyancy the trick is in the name drysuit and Buoyancy compensator, but its a learning curve and managing 2 buoyancy sources is a bit different to start with.

Manuals are great but the pages get wet underwater
