Housing /super suit fogging in ocean

I've got a super suit housing for my GoPro 7 but it kayaking in the ocean today it fogged up on me. Any suggestions to keep it from fogging?

Re: Housing /super suit fogging in ocean

Best steps to stop fogging... do all steps for best results and skip any not possible at the time for better than nothing results.

 

  • Get some anti-fog inserts. Various brands out there and even some DIY options.
  1. If possible, in a well air conditioned environment (car/room) prepare the gopro (the air is less moist)
  2. Place some saliva onto the inside of the supersuit lens area and rub in thouroughly then buff dry and smudge free with microfiber cloth
  3. Insert gopro into super suit
  4. Insert 3 anti-fog bits anywhere they will fit around the gopro
  5. If possible, hold supersuit case up to air conditioner vent (in car on recycled) and blow into case a little bit
  6. Quickly close/seal case (do not open case again until you have to)

Re: Housing /super suit fogging in ocean

Yep, that's the answer!
In most cases, just using the anti-fog inserts will do the trick. Depending on the conditions, even just using one can work. If you don't have any handy, 1-6 as @swifthero28110 suggested should do the trick.
