Hey you guys,just bought fins and new googles, and I figured out how to use my swimp3 player. Music underwater---not bad.

Hi Regina,
How's everything with you? I wish I had the luxury of going to a beach. Do I miss it, as I can now only reminisce from my high school days, when I was a lifeguard on the beaches of Chicago. Hope you got the problems worked out with your swimp3 and your goggles. Take Care, Darrick

I have trouble when I use the underwater music headphones. Either my googles are too tight or too loose.
Typically, I'll abandon use of headphones rather than ruin a good swim.

Hi Regina, can you identify the trouble with your goggles? Are they flooding or "sweating" (condensation)? Let's fix it, we need you in the water!

Ok, I've been using the SWIMP3. It works but I have trouble with my goggles. Any suggestions out there?

Errol,
What an excellent observation, and well noted. I, too, agree that for the numbers that exist in DAP, you would think we would have ALL members involved in at least one group or another. I would like to add not only for an educational perspective, but equally important, from a survival point of view, as well as recreational and health.

Hey you guys, I just bought a Swimp3 player for underwater music. I was wondering if anyone else out there is using underwater music devices?
Comment by ERROL DUPLESSIS on March 11, 2009 at 3:11pm
It is interesting to note that there are 30 individuals interested in SCUBA, and barely as many interested in all other swimming groups listed with DAP. Why is this? Just an observation. Promote swimming for self-empowerment - it is THAT important to learn as part of our education
