Human beings were created to live on land, however, due to increased knowledge they can now go deep seas and make discoveries. Many things in the oceans have not been discovered below the oceans and seas, but humans are trying all means to go explore the ocean beds and make discoveries. But before any person dives below the ocean, he or she must some gears meant for diving. One of the requirements that every diver should have is a wetsuit. There are many reasons why divers are advised to put on wetsuits when going under the water, some of these reasons are discussed in this article.
A diver who wears wetsuit will stay warm even he or she goes under the ocean where the temperatures of the waters are low. The environmental temperature will always change as the seasons’ change. Because the sea and the oceans are also found in the environment, the temperature of the waters will also change as the seasons change. Therefore, when a diver goes below the sea during the time the temperature is low, he or she will be feeling the cold and may not be able to stay long below the waters. However, if the diver, puts on a wetsuit, he or she will not be affected by the cold and therefore, can stay below the water for a long time. The materials used to make the wetsuits will insulate the body, and so the diver will always feel warm even if he or she is at the region the temperatures are cold.
Wetsuits have also been shown to increase the buoyancy of the divers. The buoyancy of a person swimming should be high for the swimmer to find it easy to swim, if the buoyancy is reduced, the person will find it difficult to swim. The research which has been conducted have shown that the wetsuits increase the buoyancy of the swimmer. Thus, any person putting on a wet suit will find it easy to swim under or above the waters. Because the buoyancy of the swimmer is increased when wearing a wetsuit, he or she will use less effort when swimming than when not putting on the suit.
The other merit of putting on a wetsuit when diving is that it will keep your safe. It is possible to find some sharp rocks, and deadly fish like the jellyfish. Because the ocean current is strong, it can push you towards a rock which can cut your skin. However, if you put on a wetsuit your body will be kept safe from the abrasion of the currents, the deadly bites of the jellyfish and other sea creatures.
These are the benefits of putting on wetsuits when diving.
