Katak Pink.....HELP ME...!!

Post Number:#1  Postby rinaaz » Tue Jul 24, 2007 8:12 pm

Hi Katak Pink.. heheh

I bought a mask,fins and the booties from you right.. and I was so excited and can't wait to wear it for 'poyo-poyo'...

Well.. the 'poyo-poyo' seem tak jadi... because.. :

1. The mask keep leaking and since I failed to do that mask clearing..so...I had to surface and fix it up ! Luckily it was only 3 mtr... :-[

2. The fins was sooooooooo heavy and my legs was sooooooooo tired.. huh !.. at last.. I just pakai yang sewa tu.. lagi ringan...

3. The booties ??.. heheh.. no problem at all..   8-)


So..Mask tu still 'virgin' heheeh.. baru pakai tak sampai 5 min.. Anyone who want to buy it ? Just tell me..

Yes, Rinaaz......... do you mind share which mask and fins you are using?  I am now shortlisting the type of fins I would like to buy but I am more concern on the weight of the fins...... worried if buy those rubber fins maybe heavy and caused tiredness and worst,  muscle cramp during dives.  Thanks

rinaz maybe you were wearing sublock...grease and water dont mix so thats why the water rushes in
or maybe the way you wear the mask is wrong too tight or the strap is not fasten properly?

I have a fren who has the same problem and she had to buy her mask twice. Still she has the same problem.

try to get someone to help you when you are diving in the pool..if itw true the mask just aint for your face then follow snafu advise..

those are procedures to prevent mask from fogging...its not related to mask flooding.

before you get another mask..i would recommend you to:
a. check whether there is any hair stuck between your face and mask skirting.
b. tighten the mask strap. loose mask starp may promote flooding.
c. if you are exhaling into your mask.....stop doing that..heh

yes..low volume mask are good...but they have this tendency of pressing on the facial bone especially on the cheek and eye socket when being wear too tight or because of mask squeeze..

i have a Dacor Bandit which i really like but it presses on my eye socket, so in the end of the dive it will be very uncommfortable.

just to show that not only look for perfect fit when buying a mask...but make sure the frame or lens does not presses on any specific part of the face to be comfortable.

woo avidiver why not just try fins from your frenz...i did it before i bought mine..pure rubber is good but it must be flexible and not too tough or hard.

katak pink...try adjust the mask without surfacing...
take off the mask while u in the water and try to do mask clearing...who knows maybe this could help hehehehe

mine last time..when i bought, i soak with Coke for two nights, burn the lense (outter and inner), scrub with colgate.. the before dive, i put Colgate Triple Action.. (other variant tak jalan *other variant did not work*  :P

or maybe ur hairlet the water comes in.. or the simplest way is to get a new one. hehe..
i prefer season mask compare to the bau kedai one!!  ;D

bau kedai = brand new
