I am REALLY buoyant. That's just how it is. Today I got a weight belt for snorkeling. With my magical weights, I am neutral at the surface, my mask rising and falling above the waterline as I breathe. Trouble is, when I free dive, I take in a big breath, and I am once again buoyant. I don't really think I want so much weight that I am negatively buoyant when I breathe out, that just doesn't seem safe. Today I experimented with breathing some of my air out. Better underwater, but when I came up I didn't have enough juice to clear my snorkel. This is going to be a tricky balancing act.
