Intermediate Underwater Hand Signals

Previously we showed you the basic hand signals for scuba diving. In this advice video, we're going to be going over how to communicate intermediate hand signals under water. A lot of these can be regional, but these ones are based on American sign language. So it's always best to have a chat with your instructor or your buddy on which hand signals that they use. 

CLENCHED FIST, PALM FACING INWARDS PATTED TO THE CENTRE OF YOUR CHEST.

- I am low on air.  

 

PALM FLAT, FACING DOWNWARDS, MOVED LEFT TO RIGHT ACROSS YOUR THROAT.

- I am out of air.  

 

CLENCHED FIST BROUGHT TOWARDS YOUR MOUTH, THEN TO THEIRS, AND BACK AGAIN.

- Buddy breath.  

 

INDEX AND MIDDLE FINGER OUT, TWISTING YOUR HAND FROM LEFT TO RIGHT AND BACK AGAIN. - Switch second stages.
