The Ocean Friendly Committment 1. Constantly being aware of my buoyancy and trim, never touching the bottom. 2. Never allowing myself to go on my knees or stand on the bottom, especially when do skills or in an emergency. 3. Never using my hands for positioning or propulsion - only my fin kicks. 4. Using a streamlined equipment configuration, securing all “danglies” so as not to damage the environment. 5. Continuing my skill development through education and practice to ensure that I remain Ocean Friendly.
