Meet Our Newest Addition To The Team
30th December 2014
We hope you all had a great Christmas and are over your hangovers and food comas. Our Christmas Dinner was epic; Scott Frost our aussie instructor who was a chef in his previous life along with his side kick Lina cooked our dinner for nearly 40 members of staff. We were treated to lamb, pork and turkey with a Swedish input of meatballs and potato gratin and a whole other bunch of veggies and stuffing. Yum! But the best news of all was Big Blues present of a brand new boat. The boat which has yet to be named will be up and running in the New Year and will be the biggest boat in our fleet. This means we have four, yes four boats that can accommodate dive courses, fun divers and also run 3 dive day trips to Sail Rock. As you can imagine we are all very excited. All we need to do now is come up with a name for her. Suggestions on a post card please.
When we are taking certified divers fun diving it is sometimes surprising how many divers we see diving with too much weight because it’s what they were told they needed on their last diving holiday. Being weighted properly means that it isn’t all about kicking your way around a dive site, a more efficient way to move through the water is to kick and glide, thus reducing effort and air consumption. During the Advanced Adventurer course your Instructor will recommend that one of the chosen dives is Perfect Buoyancy and this is usually the first dive of the course, as this will help you determine how much weight you need for different diving conditions, and you will also experiment with different weight positioning to perfect your trim. It fines tunes your buoyancy skills and educated how just your breath can alter you buoyancy. Being able to control your buoyancy means that you are more comfortable in the water which also means you will enjoy your diving much more and also making you a safer diver. Ask your instructor about the buoyancy dive on your Advanced Course, or even the Buoyancy Specialty Course which is two dives of intense buoyancy skills. #realdiving
