I went to Shaws cove and it did'nt look good for my dive buddies so we went home DANG!

So I called my friend Adam at Pacific sporting Goods and said, hay you need to clean the pool befor we teach class next week.

So he said(Fully) :)

I went to my house picked up my stuff. yahoo I get to dive still even if it's only in the pool.
I suited up, it was realy easy to get on now that the neck seal fits good.

My buddy Adam got the pool vacume ready for me and I jump in.
I got almost all the air out of the suit befor I got in but I felt like UH O my feet are full of air wich they where but I started kicking to the bottem of the pool and got my head up and everything just got perfect(SWEET this thing kicks ass)!!!!

I felt the suit get tight and then I thought o ya I need to add a teeny blast of air to my suit (Awsome)

So I vacumed and horsed around in the pool with my suit. It was so easy to get my bouyancy perfect. Sheesh I thought this thing was going to be a challenge Dratt foiled again.
There was no seal leaks the inflator works great the dump valve works great.When I got out of the water and took the suit off my left shoulder was a little wet but I'm sure water is going to come in the exit valve a little bit.

So my first time going dry was a complete sucsses.
I'm going to try it in the blue cavern tank at the AOP just to feel the cold then I think I'll be ready for the open ocean.
The pools realy clean too
