La pregunta del millón… Como saber si estoy bien lastrado?

E lastre correcto es aquel que en superficie con el equipo puesto, con el jacket totalmente deshinchado y con una respiración normal flotamos a la altura de los ojos.
Y para afinar aún más el cálculo de lastre, haz pruebas al finalizar tus inmersiones (+/- 30 bares de presión en la botella). Si con todo el equipo puesto, a 5 metros de profundidad y con el chaleco vacío, puedes mantener una flotabilidad neutra fácilmente, ¡has dado en el clavo! Si por el contrario asciendes o desciendes involuntariamente, deberás aumentar o disminuir los kilos de lastre.

The million dollar question… How do I know if I am correctly weighted?

The correct weighting is the one that on the surface with the equipment on, with the jacket completely deflated and with normal breathing we float at eye level.
And to refine the ballast calculation even more, do some tests at the end of your dives (+/- 30 bars of tank pressure). If with all your equipment on, at 5 metres depth and with an empty BCD, you can easily maintain neutral buoyancy, you’ve hit the nail on the head! If, on the other hand, you ascend or descend unintentionally, you will need to increase or decrease the weighting.
