#54: What's Happening - Wetsuit Revenge!

Our co-op students are usually ready to get out of their wetsuits after completing five dives a day for five days straight. Not this week! Our newest co-op, Kimmie, just couldn't bear to part with her wetsuit. Well, actually she got stuck in at after her last dive of the day.

We use our dive gear several times daily and we're really tough on it. It seemed like Kimmie's wetsuit really wanted to put up a fight. After many attempts to free her we decided to bring in the big gun (a.k.a., John with his pliers.)

John cut the top of the zipper off so the suit wasn't badly damaged. Kimmie was able to go home in her regular clothes. I'm happy to say she came back this morning and is ready to dive again!
