  • I'm overweight.... so, proper breathing techique seems to be your issue.  ;D

    Btw... in most cases (when we breath normally), Male tends to use up air faster than Female, Overweight divers tends to use up air faster than normal weight divers.... not too sure about smokers, as my smoking dive buddies are very skinny  ;D

    So... proper breathing techique will help alot.  ;)

     :'( :'( :'(

    I am also wondering if its normal to unintentionally breath out through your nose. I do that often and sometime my mask will flood a little. Can this be the cause to poor air intake?

    No.... this problem didn't happen to me. But I believe that it will go away once you dive more.... I do agree with - hellhole - Fitness is also a very important factor.  :)

  • Plus, the more dives you have, the more you will be comfortable underwater. I think the trick is to stop worrying about your breathing underwater and then you will breath subconciously. Just like on land.

  • There are also other factors involved as well like dehydration and fatigue. Once I went to Tioman, have to overnight at Mersing due to tide. For some reason, I cant sleep at all even though I am tired. Next day, have to wait till 9am for the ferry, by the time I reach Tioman, it was almost lunch time. The 1st dive was only about 17 meters and I was out of air by 35mins. I was a shitty day for me. Sunday was back to normal though.
