    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    I know of a few folk that really struggle to clear their ears, my advice

    Start on dry land , your ears should pop, or click or glug..but if they don’t then don’t force them …take it easy trying a couple of times a day gently.

    Seasons affect people differently, pollen , dust etc ..so if you have a season that blocks your nose /nasal passage don’t try to dive blocked up.

    Medical intervention is a huge no go, don’t use medicine to clear your ears because if they block on the bottom under pressure you will blow ear drums returning to the surface , which can and will cause infections nausea ear bleeds deafness.

    So your starting out , clear your ears on the surface and again as you duck dive ..ie your head is a meter under water ..then again as you feel the very first squeeze on your ear drums ..do not wait for it to hurt .

    If it’s hurting , stop , please understand your dealing with a very fragile part of you body , damage can cause vertigo, nausea, deafness that maybe on going!

    Understand every dive is different water temp and conditions and your physical condition, and environmental conditions change regularly!

    Dive to your abilities and comfort on the day.

    Better to give a dive a miss than miss a life time of diving!

    Been up Whangaroa ways since Monday. This was the first decent day weather wise. Managed this one jigging a reef offshore.
    Got a few snaps in the harbour yesterday so it was worth towing the boat up.

    Sulphur Point I think it's called. Easy launch with 3 lanes and pontoons from memory.
    Pretty much at the Mount.

    I am sure there must be a programme to help kick that habit. Ha ha ha ha

    Just watch the Whareroa boat ramp as you come out under the expressway and the height limit is low, ideal for smaller boats but very low traffic so always a spot on those calm days when everyone else is heading out too. Pilot bay can be a bitch to find a park and no jetty's to assist the launch. Both the Sulphur point and Nautilus ramps are well set up with multiple jetty's, my pick is the Nautilus as it can be a bit quieter
