Been there, done it...

It's best in the Red Sea where you are suddenly surrounded by small fish.

A buddy chucked through the loop of his inspiration holding a 6m stop. I was really having trouble understanding what his signals were all about until we surfaced and he explained. We helped him hose it out and clean it and he dived next day which was probably more than I would have done.

You should have come out with us Roger , we're so concerned with hanging on and not falling off that you dont have time for seasickness
Although you werent that sick that you couldnt scoff down a few fruit slices afterwards :teeth:

Done it. Hard boat in Plymouth getting a lung full of diesel fumes pre dive.

Came to the 6m stop and just let go a large amount. Not an issue, it all just went out. Surface interval i washed reg out (unscrewed it etc), moved to a different place on boat and dived again.

Provided you keep the reg in you can bring up pretty much anything and it'll be harmless (if not messy)

So Nigel, in all seriousness, does it actually go through the mushroom valves? I've often wondered; if I have to chuck, can I stay on the loop?

Taking a third steak & kidney pie during the lunch break before a particularly 'rock-n-roll' drift dive in Weymouth lead to my initiation into this rutual.

Apparently if you tip your head and blow it all goes. We did our stops, which was what mattered, and he didn't really want to discuss it much.

I've only ever done it OC, which was scary enough, but I pulled the reg, heaved, suppressed the gasp and purged the reg into my mouth. My mouth tasted like a well used poop-scoop by the time we got back on the boat but I think keeping face down meant gravity was on my side.

Not something I want to try again.
