Diving Equipment

Are under normal conditions dressed in a Ursuit BDS Kevlar. Has a 5mm Mares wetsuit for summer diving and snorkling. Has been using Viking dry suits for almost 25 years but after 3 viking suits changed to a diverite in 2002 and now to Ursuit with plastic zipper in 2015. Underneath the Ursuit there is in the winter a Weezle Extreme Plus and in the summer a over 30 years old Viking undersuit.

Started with a DIVEX 324 (2*4L*300bar) in 1979 but after 1 year changed to AGA Divator 324. Upgraded in 1984 to an Interspiro MKII 326 (2*6L*300bar). Neither of those regulators have given any problem at any time independent of temperature and depth. Are sinde 20 years diving with twin 7l 232 bar bottles with AGIR bands, manifold with seperation and backplate. All this together with an OMS Deep Ocean strapped wing. Using twin Poseidon Xstream Deep regulators. Sometimes this is changed to a 10L 300 bar single bottle.

Bought a pair of Force Fin Pro in 1996 and these are the only fins I have used ever since. Are using SI-tech ring system with standard, 5-finger, dry gloves during most part of the year and Viking latex thumb mittens for the coldest winter period, Januari to March. These mittens makes a great difference when holding the Subal case for almost 1 hour in water with a temperature of 2 degrees centigrade.
