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.
