Very impressive. And totally unrealistic on a dive boat.
I did 2 min from 5m to the surface. The dive guide was starting to get
worried about me.

90% of divers take < 1 min from 5m to the surface. And I have yet to
meet a single diver who took more than maybe 2.

But then, I don't dive with hardcore tech divers a lot (nor with VdST
people... last time I dove with my brother he certainly wasn't going for
5min from 5m - and he's a TL**)
