    Poseidon Se7en

    Vincent from Kapolei, HI

    I am currently in Utila, Honduras where I just finished my Rebreather and Advanced Rebreather training for the Poseidon MK7.

    I have been diving for a number of years and learning this week was challenging for me. I felt like it was take everything that you know about diving and throw it out of the window. No more fine tuning buoyancy with your lungs.

    I needed an extra day of training because I had quite a lot of problems trying to solve getting neutrally buoyant. I have no idea why I had just a hard time, but it was difficult. After all of the required class diving I did some extra dives and I think I have finally started to build some nice comfort. I am 6'11" and the backplate and wing I was using didn't fit the best (shocking right?)

    So, I decided I will buy one, but I think I will plan to go to Poseidon in Venice and see if I can get the fit right. I know that it's possible to get longer breather hoses, so I hope that will help with the constant feeling of the regulator pulling down. Also, I always felt like the counterlungs were squeezing my neck.

    All in all I made it through successfully, but not without some challenges.

    I look forward to reading the forums and if anyone is taller I would love to know if you have any tips/tricks.

    There are a bunch of rebrether divers over in HI, that I use to dive with in CA. Send me a PM and I will hook you up with them.
