If you've never lost anything diving just wait it going to happen.

Stencil for my slate! Loose them all the time! Before that, my hat. Blew right off my head on the boat. Somewhere in the Pacific is a Manta Ray with a really nice Bronx Zoo cap!

my dignity lol - just kidding.

i've been lucky so far, but I did almost lose my GoPro once. It was on my head and at the end of the dive, it wasn't on my head anymore. My husband and I had 700 PSI we were going to ascend (30ft depth) and i touched my head and realized it was gone, but I had felt it there not that long ago, so I quickly tried to search around me to find it about 5ft away in the sand... it was a close call, now i pretty much tether everything to me that i possibly can tether lol.

Funny how you mentioned GoPro. I lost my GoPro filters in Belize. The waves were 6- 8 feet and getting back on the boat a real challenge. My wife was behind me and had one fin off so she decided not to try to retrieve them. That's $100 gone.

I lose weight every time I go on a dive trip. Lost my booties one time in the rinsing bucket. I think someone took them by mistake.

I have never permanently lost anything, however, after doing the back roll into the water I looked down to see a weight pouch laying in the sand about 20' deep.  It was mine.  :)  When I went to pick it up I found a new lobster catch bag, also mine.  LOL.  Looked like a yardsale on the ocean floor!  

On the other hand I have found all kinds of stuff.  Watches, fishing poles, hoop nets and at Lake Powell I found a chrome box anchor at about 60'.  Took awhile to get it up and I still use it on my deck boat here in Canyon Lake.  It will hold 3 boats, no problem.

It's a lot of fun to find stuff underwater and it feels great when it's your own. We are coming your way tomorrow looking for property or a house around canyon lake.  Let having fun and dive safe.

I lost a fin once after a dive. We had a really big group at Vortex springs in Florida and I guess someone got one of my fins by mistake. never found it.

Vortex  springs is one of my favorite places to stop on the way to Florida.

I do not wear jewelry (except engagement and wedding ring) when diving. I could lose it, getting caught on a hood or clothing, etc. , but also not to attract sharks. I don't really mind them, but I don't want to look like dinner either. I wear gloves when permitted to cover up the  rings.

I found a spear gun off the coast of Florida. It had been there awhile. I also found a weight belt.
