Needles in my eyes were nothing compared to my embarrassment as we finished the dive and everyone was asking what the hell happened to me down there.
In my teaching experience I encounter many students thinking, ok I’m gonna get through this skill to get certified and I will never clear this stupid mask again. Well, my Dears. That’s where you’re wrong. You may try to get away for a while, but not forever.
Adventures, like the one I shared with you, can end up with embarrassment and itchy eyes in the best case, or with panic attack in the less favorable scenario.
Fortunately, this skill doesn’t have to be your nightmare if only you spend enough time practicing, and get used to the water around your face.
