It was a good day to be on the lake!  :beach:

 

Next time I think we will be playing some inverted hockey!  :sprt (23):

Wow.  Not sure how many folks seeing this understand what is going on...and I'm not sure.  Your bubbles are going down, which means you are inverted walking on the ice?  That alone would be unreal.  But what are you pouring out of buckets?  It appears to be water..but water would not pour out like water, when under water?

Oops.   Can't wait for an explanation.  Thanks again for a truly wonderful video.  Can't wait for the hockey.

being a diver helps understand this video. When you exhale on scuba, your bubbles rise to the surface. When you turn your world upside down, and stand on the bottom of the ice, the bubbles actually look like they are going down to your feet. When we are diving, we wear a dry suit. This dry suit can be manually inflated to add air for both warmth and buoyancy control. to go inverted, I added a little extra air to my dry suit, and let it go to my feet. This helps hold me in place upside down.

 

The buckets were placed prior to the dive, upside down with air added. I actually added a little too much air and had a hard time lifting the buckets, until I poured some of the air out. at first I thought this would be a relatively easy stunt to pull off, but it was a little harder than I had anticipated. It took a good 3 to 5 min. to get acclimated to being upside down. After that, my mind adjusted and it actually seemed normal?

outstanding, what fun!  Hope I did not ruin it for others - it just seems so natural.   Makes sense with the air in the buckets - missed that one.  I remember one dive, about 60 feet, finding a brass urn corked with a burnt candle.   Pulled the candle, tipped over the urn to get the water out --- duh!   So funny, thinking back. 

 

Can only imagine how weird it wass walking upside down.   Was the camera person upside down as well, holding the vid camera upside down -- or flipped using software, later?

 

Being nosey -- what kind of regulator - special for cold water?  Alot of them don't like extreme cold like that.   Looking forward to the next video.

It was fun! I use apex xtx 200. they are specially formulated for cold water.

I hope to incorporate some sponsor holes with signs for a inverted golf game. The golf ball will be a tennis ball (floats) the hole will be an auger hole, golf club probably a hockey stick or broom. We will do it in more shallow water so you can see the lake floor

That is exactly how I would describe it. Another board I posted on showed me links with a better presentation.

 

 

 

video was a go pro helmet cam with the photographer inverted as well

Another great video.  My wife, who has also dove, could not get her head around the fact you were upside down.  Her next question, being female, was why would they?

My wife doesn't even ask why anymore! Anytime you guys want to try, let me know and I will be your guide!

It's really not that bad. We have all of the proper gear to do it safely. We are wearing a drysuit, which is like an underwater snowmobile suit. We also tape handwarmer packs in key areas to maintain warmth and minimize shrinkage  :thumbs: !

 

This weekend we are going to shovel lettering in the snow in reverse and photo it from under the ice  :headbang: ! Why? Why not! I will probably grid out this scale drawing and transfer it to the lake by stretching grid lines, want to showcase this theory and pitch it to dive manufacturers. It will be my first real "snow job"! :lol_hitting:  :pillepalle:

you could take some leds and face them down and have illuminated signs.  I would have said neon, but that would be tough.  Might make for a cool shot.  Maybe even try just one letter?
