Otherwise known as the Self Reliant Diver course hits Wellington. Wellington didn’t quite turn on its ‘on a good day’ diving conditions but at least we didn’t have to use the harbour.
I’d echo the tenor of comments from Sfish, diveChiq, Axe and Nemesis, in the post immediately below. A lot of good knowledge and skills in the course and a lot of fun - all in a weekend.
We covered things I’d never got around to learning, like how to fire an SMB and calculate SAC rate and how to use things I didn’t think I needed, like a pony bottle. I’ll also think more about what my feet are doing (no one ever accused me of being Zen like) and whether I’ve thought about all the contingencies for a dive.
Thanks Andy for an excellent programme and to Becs, DiveDiva (including for the excellent vege bake) and the returning recent graduate Nemesis, who accompanied us in the pool and today at Rocky Bay.
