Slide-in finns aren't pro :D ?? Than I am definately an absolute beginner. I imediately throw away mine.
This means I have to climb the Dutch dikes barefooted from now. This will end up in broken toes, awfull scars, and really cold dives (I have to cut the shoes off my drysuit).
BUT at least I am on the Pro-route again.


:D :)

Underwater and pro seems very much like an oxymoron to me! Apart from DD, is there one?

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

I thought sticking your feet in Dykes was confined to just 'topshelf' smuttiness or the seclusion of your own bedrooms..

But if their up for it then, who am I to judge..

OK, this is hilarious. Thanks for the post, Wags!

But I agree with Alex. Check out the sand, and stand on it if you have to. I like to sit on the sand and just.. hang out there and watch what's going on around me. It's peaceful.

Now about the strobe placement... :rolleyes:

Wags, you've certainly got the crowd going on this one! It would be scary if people started posting images of all the pro's in action. I'm sure many may start to rethink join in trips!
