    What made Women go CCR?

    A question came up why there are so few female CCR divers and nobody had a good answer. I kept wondering about this and figured I go ask this question here. Would particularly like to hear from fellow female CCR divers what got them into diving CCR and why.

    Claudia.... I think a good start in this would be to first look at the number of female divers by classification... (ccr, technical, cave etc) and compare that to the dive community as a whole to see if the number is different from the current distribution...

    OK I am not a woman but three of my regular deep tec dive mob over the last few years have been women.

    Add to that six more of my aquantance (ie I bumped in to them on boats regularly or they were friends)

    It may be presumptious of me but Id reckon they all to a woman went CCR because of gas cost and gas logistics just like the rest of the men I dive with.

    One of them possably went CCR because her husbnd did, but her husbnd has long since quit diving and she still dives CCR.

    this post is from Sirene, i.e. SWADIVER's wife.

    I am a woman CCR diver and love it. However, I must admit that there are some aspects of the technology that are more than I want to invest in, and in those aspects I tend to rely on my husband to handle.

    Here are some aspects of CCR diving I truly enjoy: light weight for tech diving, elimination of time pressure, and the ability to get close to marine life for photography. Once I tried a proper CCR unit (the Revo), I was sold! Maybe one should compare the number of women CCR divers to the number of women in tech diving...

    Doesn't high PPO2 increase sperm count though? If you both dive CCR you'll have end up with twins!

    Bet she see's it as a large disposable asset, basically you just bought yourselves a nursery up-front


    The women CCR divers I know bought in for the same reason the blokes did- gas cost, weight of tech gear, reduced time pressure at depth, variable PPO2 deco and cause they are cool.

    Thats why I posted.

    Of all the women I know who dive CCR only two of them are on the boards (Blanaid & Clare Pooley) and even then its not often. I know Elizbeth lurks often but she posts very little.

    From the rest I have never seen a single post?
