I have been having trouble equalizing past 30 ft. I have tried to do the nose pinch, but have only been sucseccful on the surface. I have even tried to do the nose pinch all the way down. Still no luck. The strange thing is that I can dive to 30 ft. with out equalizing at all. I don't get any discomfert at all until I reach 25 ft. Then at 30 ft. I can't go any farther. Someone told me that I am subconciously equalizing to 30 ft. But how? And how can I extend it? Is there any way to equalize with out pinching my nose? This would be helpful, since when I pinch my nose I waste air and dive time. I have the dive time to reach 50+ ft., just not the ability to equalize. Any tips would be greatly appricieated.
