Very nicely done. Try doing this with someone twice as big as you who has decided that the exchange shouldn't include time to adjust gear sizes, just start out with the other's gear and exchange. Not fun, but instructive.

They are supposed to remain in contact (touching) at all times. I'm surprised a Course Director and Master Instructor would over look that part of the skill.

John, there is no PADI requirement to remain in contact at all times as part of this exercise. If you have any questions about how to perform this skill, please feel free to contact us.
Can you let us know where you have seen this "remain in contact" thing? I have not been able to see this anywhere and here is what you find in the PADI Dive Master Course: (copied from manual) Divemaster Waterskills - Exercise 5 - Equipment Exchange In Confined water, demonstrate the ability to effectively respond to an unsual circumstance underwater by exchanging all scuba equipment (except exposure suits and weights) with a buddy while sharing a single regulator second stage earning a minimum score of 3. Conduct: - Orient Candidates to procedures for sharing a single regulator second stage, including exhalation between breaths and not covering the purge button as the regulator is passed back and forth - Give buddy teams less than five minutes to discuss the exercise. - Have candidates begin sharing a single regulator second stage in water too deep in which to stand, exchange equipment and continue sharing air until they reach shallow water. - Do not assign problems - allow candidates to resolve any naturally-occuring ones. =========== Nothing in the score criteria mention the "remain in contact" part either ...

Good job

they did ok but held their breath (even with bubbling) for too long and in a real case scenario the other diver could accidentally breathe water if his/her lungs are empty. by vacuum or diaphragm contraction i mean. cheers
Rasmus Christensen (2 years ago)
is there a reason they are letting air out as soon as they are not breathing? cant they just hold it in ? just wondering :)
Matthew Novak (2 years ago)
+Rasmus Christensen The number one rule in scuba is to never hold your breath. If for some reason they had a uncontrolled ascent, their lungs may pop from the increased air pressure.

Doing this in a pool and doing this in 25ft of water in a lake ARE 2 DIFFERENT THINKS FOLKS. You can't hold your breath for as long at depth.
The requirement is simply: =========== - Have candidates begin sharing a single regulator second stage in water too deep in which to stand, exchange equipment and continue sharing air until they reach shallow water. =========== For a demonstration video, I think it meets the requirement.

wow, I've never seen this exercise before, I tried to exchange gear once and it was a disaster, the other guy didn't have enough weight on the belt to stay at the bottom, it was only 1m deep though

Javier,, I understand this is a buoyancy stress control exercise and see no other point in it. Could you explain whether there's one?
