My snorkel has a hard plastic. and every time I put it on, it hurts my face. What should I do to stop it. Please tell me because I’m going to free dive next week. Btw, I’m a lil kid. Just look at my channel to see proof.

Ora Wheeler says:

Aw, this was a very nice post. In idea I wish to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and actual effort to make a very good video but what can I say I procrastinate alot and not at all seem to get one thing done.

Hey AC I wanted to just give you a shout out. Your river treasure vids have really inspired my son. We watch most of your vids together. We went out just for fun, spontaneously purchased some masks with snorkels from Benny’s. I’ll admit I know they’re poor quality. But we used them anyway. Every day on our last vacation. I used mine mainly to retrieve a $10 spinner lure I had lost on a log one morning before anyone woke up. Catching turtles. I even found another lure that I replaced the hooks on.
You’re a good guy brotha. Thanks for giving my kid something appropriate and inspiring to watch when he gets lost in YouTube land. Cuz god knows he sure does. But it’s fine with me as long as he keeps finding fun things he wants to do, because I really enjoy my time with him. Next summer I’ll invest in some quality gear and we are going to do it right.

For defogging my personal way of doing it is thouroughly washing ONLY the glass of the mask with detergent, then do the same thing with toothpaste, thoroughly clean the glass. And so u dont get fog everytime before u go diving spit in the mask, put it all over across the glass and give it just a little bit of water so the spit doesent affect ur seeing. This has worked for me and has not damaged my mask.

Alexander Sim-Rowan says:

the thing is. we call our sister samsquanch because she is really hairy

Lil Clout says:

So the lady that gets her hair tangled should maybe wear a swim cap so it doesn’t happen again

Marshall Horton says:

I’m planning on buying this mask, could you tell me which Gopro mount you use?


So basically what you are saying is, I might as well just buy goggles because using a snorkel is just as efficient as holding your breath? I personally don’t understand why people use those.

Maybe you can explain it to me?

mark Bohamed says:

I love ALL your videos. I’m brand new to metal detecting and magnet fishing. In fact I JUST BOUGHT and JUST RECEIVED everything. I haven’t even used any of it yet as I’m getting it all organized. Is there ANYWAY I can contact you via cell or Facebook to ask a lot of questions. My name is mark Bohamed and you can find me on Facebook or send me a PM. Thank you!!

jesse lee says:

Chigg where can I buy a shirt?

MasterCollingwood says:

They have an anti-fog wax in a lil jar you can buy. Buff your lenses and it should keep them from fogging for the duration of your underwater adventure time. 🙂

roolee2k says:

Hirozen Sarutobi says:

Can u breath using snorkel why you are in deep in water? Or u will just hold your breath?

EasyToRemembur says:

Great, but this isnt freediving.

RetardBoy says:


Ashton Lancaster says:

What type if snorkel is that I need a snorkel like that

Oh-Billy says:

camera ?


freediving is totally different than snorkeling. also the equipment you use is totally different. I think it is better if you just wrote snorkeling in the video but not freediving.

How do you that camera on your mask or you want to scammers

Ben Lee says:

So how does it seal when you have facial hair? Mine constantly leaks and fogs. $50 mask too… I’ve tried everything, burning the silicone off, toothpaste, clean shaving, not having it on tight, I spit in it before every dive. ????……

Quinn Opiola says:

What is the GoPro attachment

SixRavenEight /SMBW says:

Googled, how do snorkelers work? Saw a Mr Wizard video and this video, so I watched them both. I’m still afraid to go very far underwater, but now if I ever have to I have a better chance of coming back out of the water breathing. Thanks.

Brecken Keoraj says:
