I've heard you can get mini oxygen canisters that strap to your arm and you can bite down on them to get and new lung full of air just when you need it the most after being held down just that little bit to long, after looking long and hard on the net I have not been able to find this, can anyone tell me if these things are out there and where i could get one?

HAHA....you'd be spewin if you let out the last bit of air and found out it didn't work.

I'm the scab you keep picking off and is there again the next day.

I hope not coz one of them would be awsome!!! after to many years of breathing concrete dust, my lung capasity is not good and every now and then find my self scratching for the surface. i do not want to be sitting on the beach when the surf is pumping!!! some one should make them if they are not out there already.

Col, yes you are entirely correct mate.

Some of my mates in Hawaii use the vest with the built in air canister. I have heard reports of them using the air durig two wave hold downs.
