Freediving mask

New mask! Piranha by Sporasub. This mask came out in 2013. This allows for a reduction of more than 30% of the inner air volume. The field of vision is much wider, approaching to the natural field of view.
The glasses of this mask are thinner (only 2mm) and the overall weight of only 121gr makes it one of the lightest masks on the market. The mask also features great comfort and fitting.

In Hawaii, it is really hard to find something good items in the store. I have to look for always online so that means I cannot try them. Fortunately this mask fit my face really good. I can’t wait to try in water!

I purchased aqualung freediving mask Sphera while ago which is very popular mask in freediving. It is curved lenses provide true 180-degree visibility for maximum awareness while swimming. Lenses are plastic. You need to extra care for this. It is very easy to scratch. by the way this is not a reason I had to purchased another one.

It is CURVED lenses that gives me sea sick in 3 seconds. My husband tried it who never gets sea sick but he said same thing. I could not swim for 30 min. This is really, worse mask I ever tried. I also notice a vision is different too. I thought the depth is only 10ft or something but it is 20ft.  We go that place all the time so I kind of know the site, depth etc but that time with this mask i felt so weird. I don’t recommend this mask who gets sea sick.

It is getting warmer everyday. Water was clear today at North Shore. Not good wave for surfing. Actually tomorrow 5/31 south swell is getting big. all surfer goes to south tomorrow i guess? Cheack at for more info of surfing north shore Hawaii

This picture is at back side of Waimea bay, that valley is Waimea Valley. If you are tourist this place should put your to do list in Hawaii.

Waimea Valley is an area of historic cultural significance on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. The valley, being an important place in Hawaiian religion, includes several historical structures including stone terraces and walls constructed during the time of the Hawaiian monarchy. Waimea Valley is a historical nature park including botanical gardens and fall.

You can swim in waimea fall but mmmmmmm you can swim in the Ocean that much better i guess. There is also creek in Waimea bay from Waimea Valley. Lots of tourist let their kids play in the creek, DO NOT DO this Please! Specially winter time, you guys visit here and there are NOT swimtable water I understand you want let your kids play in water. BUT DO NOT let them go in the creek/pond in Waimea bay. There is bad bacteria, its really bad one.

One time I let my dog swam in there then one of the lifeguard make sure if I know anything about this pond. Even dog! they are worried about it? wow my dog is fine he is swimming in that creek for last 8 months. It is a dog. But I will never let my kids (if i have) touch that water AT ALL.

Anyway yeah it is ALOHA FRIDAY enjoy your week end!
