How many of us have lost masks/snorkels in surf?

Post  Bringel on Tue Feb 09, 2010 10:41 pm

The one way to overcome this is to put the mask strap underneath the hoody of the wetsuit. Another approach that I heard of is to stitch a one inch ring of dyneema to my wetsuit in line with my right collar bone. Then attach an eight inch piece of dyneema to my mask's snorkel clip. On the other end of this dyneema I attach a plastic clip which clips onto the ring stitched to my wetsuit. Another advantage is that you can afford to wear your mask really loose, increasing your comfort and thus the length of time you spend in the water. cyclops

Here is a tip ,

I use the standard clip that comes with the snorkel , but i also attatch one of those silicone figure of eight snorkel protectors that the scuba guys use.

Costs about R 3.00 at Orca , i am yet to loose a snorkel after using this contraption.
