In Topic: Experiences with the Apeks WTX-D18 wing?

Yesterday, 01:16 AM

##Update##

 

If anyone out there are interested, I bought the Apeks WTX-D18 in May 2014 and have now done about 150 dives with it. 

 

The materials are great, inflator is great, the wing is of course tiny but has enough lift to be used with my new 7mm semidry, yes I know its crazy to dive with a suit like that here in Bali but Manta Point and Crystal Bay gets damned cold in august/september! 

 

I can release air from the inflator while remaining completely horizontal, something that was not possible with my old OMS wing.

 

All in all I am very happy with it and would recommend anyone who is not diving "overweight" and who are looking for a streamlined setup to go for it!

 

Happy bubbles, Morten


In Topic: Is selling stock images worth the trouble?

Dear Bill, 

 

Thank you, I am doing very well and the diving just seems to be getting better and better the longer we stay here :)

 

I will start looking into it, I might as well try to let the images work a little for me now that I have them.

 

Just to make sure, what do you mean with writing, you are thinking magazine articles/equipment reviews etc? 

 

Hope you are both doing well,

all the best from Bali, Morten 


In Topic: Attaching a Subsee +10, 67 mm to a flat dslr flat port without using the subs...

Dear Tony,

 

I was recently looking for a way of mounting my diopters on my Aquatica MF macro port and found a bunch of great products, only thing is that I think the prices were a bit steep for such a simple thing.

 

I actually ending up buying a plastic food container that fits my port, did a bit of cutting, made some holes for air to escape and it works like a charm. The fit is very strong, actually its strong enough that I have no problem walking around with the diopters on my housing on land without worrying about them falling off, and it ended up costing me only 2$ and half an hour of work :)  

 

Having said that, the adapter from Ikelite is "only" 50$ and it looks like it will do the trick as well ;)

 

Have fun with the critters!

 

Best regards, Morten

In Topic: Bali or Similan Islands?

22 March 2014 - 06:34 AM

Yep, the bleaching did kill of quite a bit of corals in the Similans.

 

I would go Bali, and I agree with Mikes advice, find an operator who will take you out to places like Gili Selang (Amed) and you will have great soft and hard corals!

 

Have a look in my previous thread, there is a little 5min video of diving in Bali! :)
