Full Face Snorkeling Mask: Choosing the right size & maintenance
Updated: Jul 21
LeWave Sports designers have developed Full Face Snorkeling Masks that can fit adults as well as children. The snorkels come in two different sizes: S/M and L/XL.
Choosing the correct size for Adults and Children:
Take a quick minute to take your facial measurements. Measure from the bridge of your nose to the bottom of your chin.
If it is less than 4.7 inches or 12 cm, the correct size is S/M.
If it is more than 4.7 inches or 12 cm, the correct size is L/XL.
Things to keep in mind (quality):
Your first criteria should be to always have the right fit. The skirt of the mask is what will be in contact with your face and create a seal against your skin.
Always make sure that the skirt is made from silicone. Rubber skirts will crack and will easily break over a short period of time. Silicone masks will be effective for a long time.
Choose a wider width for the skirt instead of a shorter one. The longer the edges are, the better it will seal against your face.
Always choose a mask with Neoprene Straps. Rubber straps tend to pull on the hair as well as rapidly cut and split. Meanwhile Neoprene is a soft and non-breakable material. It has quick-drying and temperature-controlled properties.
LeWave Sports purpose is to focus on Quality primarily. This is why our masks are engineered to have the best materials and deliver the highest of quality. Now let’s talk about maintenance!
Taking care of your LeWave Sports Mask
In order to extend the lifespan of your mask, here are some tips that we would love to share with you.
TIP 1. Snorkeling in fresh water and salted water involve different care requirements. Salted water has a long-term corrosive effect on goods. Simply rinse the mask with fresh water after each snorkeling adventure to remove any unwanted salt particles. No rinsing is necessarily for fresh water dives but it is still recommended.
TIP 2. Sand can be abrasive, especially inside the float within the snorkel, it can eventually damage the float's valve. Always rinse the float, the drain valve, the lenses and the connecting section of the tube with fresh water, before and after snorkeling.
TIP 3. Store your mask and snorkel in the LeWave Sports mesh bag and store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
