    Default PRESS INQUIRY // Naked Diving for Minimum Exposure Protection

    Hello All and thanks Tom for your help

    I am a writer with MEL Magazine, a men's lifestyle publication in Los Angeles. I'm currently working on a story about men who are regularly nude in pubic and have heard that some divers do not wear clothes to protect the cave / dive area from exposure.

    I was hoping to speak with anyone who dives nude, preferably men, and anyone else who has knowledge of this subject matter.

    Thanks,

    Bad assumptions as to why one would dive naked. The clothes/wetsuits/drysuits protect the person and add warmth.

    Shrinkage in 67 to 71 degree water could be substantial. And while I do not scooter, God forbid that a slack scooter line gets wrapped around a body part.

    Safe diving,

    I have never seen a naked diver. I have seen naked swimmers at Ginnie Springs, though.

    There's a couple of nuts in t-shirts but that's about the closest.


    I like to keep my clothes on. It's hard to stow the long hose otherwise.


    BTW, when did diving naked become a cool internet article.


    There's a video we can link you to of something really cool called the warhammer maneuver that your readers would love.
