Diving Weights and Weightbelts:
Weights are critical to Scuba diving. Clients need to be correctly weighted in order to enjoy the dive.
Most clients make the error of placing too many weights on their weight belts. You now end up struggling on the dive because you are overweighted.
Remember that the purpose of the weights is not to pull you down, but to compensate for the buoyancy of the wetsuit. The average person is neutrally buoyant in a costume in the pool. We simply add the weights to aid us in taking the wetsuit down which is incredibly buoyant.
We stand by the philosophy of diving with as little weights as possible so that you don’t have to keep inflating your BC at depth and drastically increasing your Drag Profile underwater.
