  I'm fairly convinced

that I am dragging air, so to speak, and that if I had a way to see it, I would see a slight bulge of air in the back of the suit behind the shoulders when I am completely upside down. Once I get closer to the surface, i.e. in more of a tuck position, the drag goes away, which probably means that the air pocket dissipates in the process of the tuck. Maybe Kokatat could install a handy bleeder valve on top of the suit for occasions like this :)? Actually, next time I practice rolls in this suit, I'll use the zipper to bleed air from time to time to see if that changes anything.
