Hi..I guess the forum isn't very active. I just sign up yesterday.
About fitness...hmm I guess light any other sports u need to train on endurance. Diving is quite physical at times. Having the endurance and mindset to stay calm is key.

I run marathons but don't think running helps with my air depletion rate.
This is my experience, normally during open water or AOW courses, because you are diving at very calm condition, normally DM or instructor deploy SMB during the 5 meter safety stop.

There are 2 reasons to deploy SMB, one is to avoid been crashed by boat, and secondly is to allow boatman to see you. For reason one, deploy at 5meter is fine, because you are not likely to dive in the path of Tanker nor big cruise ship. But for second reason, you want to deploy SMB as early as possible, see my explanation below:

From my experience it is better to deploy SMB whenever you decided to ascent, especially important when you are diving at challenging conditions, where surface wave is high, strong current or drift diving, you want the boatman to see your SMB as early as possible, because you could be drifted very far away after the 3 minutes safety stop. As long as the captain see your SMB, he will be able to track and locate you even after you are drifted far away.  Especially when you are diving with small boat, when there is strong current and 1 meter surface wave, if you are drifted half to 1km away, the boatman will not be able to locate you, on the other hand, if your SMB is raised near the boat, the boatman can track and know to find you.

There is no disadvantage of releasing SMB early, except that you work more to reel back the line.
Trip Reports & Reviews / Maldives. Underwater painter.

Hi guys!  I'm a new member in your community)))  My wife and I were visiting Maldives about a year ago. We are not divers, we can only snorkel and freedive a bit.  I was making a video of corals from the surface with a selfie stick. Suddenly I saw a girl in a funny orange hat painting underwater! It was very shallow, maybe 2-3 meters deep. So I tried to go deeper to take video closer. But it bothered her. Anyway, we had to check out in 15 minutes. So we left the hotel without getting any info about her. My wife wants to get exactly this painting and she has been asking me to find this artist for a long time. Iím specially registered on a few diving forums to ask professionals, maybe someone knows the name of the artist?

Don't know how to add video. On another webforum agree with this link
