Awesome job!! Chuffed for you both - high fives 🙂

Well what a weekend that was. Huge thanks to the DiveSouth team for their patience and understanding of our needs from our first tentative pool sessions a few years ago to becoming Raid Master Recsue divers. We have been taught to dive safely and controlled. The journey has been awesome. Sally and I are really proud of our boys and we are confident they have both had the best start to their diving careers they could of had. Proud to be part of the Raid family.PS thanks to Sally for her patience and support, she has been solid through out.

Well done gents! I wouldn't of rescued Scott though... Should of left him in! ☺️

Or still come down, grab some bargains and look for over £2k's worth of prizes? 😁

Really fun pool session last night, Simon did brilliantly, we spent quite a bit of the session without fins working on trim and hovering, as well as some propulsion techniques and a little bit of SMB work at the end, managed to keep him busy so only got a couple of shots right at the end of the session. Well done to Rose, Mark and Max for doing so well on their Try dive with Rich and Justin and well done to Tracey for making the most of the pool time practicing some skills with Dave. Thanks everyone great work:)) @divesouth #divesouth #DiveRaid #DiveRaidUK 5ThingsClear #learntoscuba #Xdeep #ApeksImage attachmentImage attachment

We’re looking forward to welcoming Simon from #5thingsclear back tonight for some more fun hanging out underwater and some fine tuning in preparation for his upcoming Ecological diver course:) @divesouth #divesouth #5thingsclear #diveraid #diveraiduk #learntoscuba 5ThingsClear
Its so nice to receive such great feedback about the RAID courses and how we do things here at Dive South. We just had to share Adams amazing feedback from his RAID Explorer 30 /Drysuit Specialty and Nitrox Specialty courses from last week. We are so glad you are enjoying your courses with us and we love teaching and diving with you. You are super keen and are clearly enjoying your time underwater learning new skills and putting them into practice. Its been great to see you progress so well on your journey so far and we all cant wait to see where it takes you next. Looking forward to many more dives with you coming up:) Sign up today to start your RAID journey https://www.diveraid.com/asp/members/register.asp?fromdc=577 @DiveSouth #DiveSouth #diveRaid #diveRaidUK #learntoscuba #scubadiving #Explorer30 #Drysuit #Nitrox #ukdiving

Well done Divesouth again, and well done Adam.... I can see you going a long way in scuba diving... Maybe even instructor? Well done with you're courses mate, keep it up...

Another fun pool session this morning, some different courses going on - we had Rob and Sam in working on their confined work for their Raid Master Rescue course, Maria enjoying her first taste of scuba as she completed her watermanship and snorkelling skills a couple of weeks back and is now well under way with her pool work towards her RAID Open Water 20 course. It was also lovely to meet Georgia who completed her skills review and we are looking forward to her joining us on some local dives soon. Well done everyone, sorry these were the only photos from today, hopefully take some more next time:) @divesouth #divesouth #scubadiving #scubadivinguk #learntoscubaImage attachment

Now these I have seen in the flesh and they look awesome, yet to try them out yet, but we do love all of our Apeks regulators so no doubt I will end up owning a set of these. Small and perfectly formed, light weight yet not compromising on the robust build quality. Very nice!
The new Xdeep mask soon to be launched, looks great can’t wait to see one in the flesh:)

Looks amazing🥰

Anyone fancy a couple of dives at Swanage with me tomorrow? A couple of different options just let me know ASAP this morning as there are limited spaces. Option 1 - an early drift or the Fleur in the morning then the pier or option 2 - the pier late morning then a drift in the afternoon around 3:30pm.

Hope you guys had a great day, my plans were changed late Friday, so managed a couple of dives at Chesil.

The long awaited Dive South Tshirts and hoodies have arrived! Sorry for the delay everyone, long story🤣 we are planning to have a social get together one evening next week, meet at the new classroom and then head for a beer, so we can hand them out then:)) We are waiting for a partial refund from them due to all the issues, so we are hoping to be able to refund you all £5 each and a couple of sizes were incorrect so we’ll catch up with you all individually about the refunds. #divesouth @divesouth #recycle #recycledclothing

Last nights pool session was brilliant, two new RAID Open water 20 students Maria and Mike started with their watermanship skills and snorkelling skills, great start guys. And Adam joined us for his first try dive and he absolutely smashed it, such a natural and I just know he’s going to be a great diver, have a great time in the Dominican Republic and have fun on your open water course, looking forward to introducing you to drysuit diving on your return:)) @divesouth #divesouth #diveraid #diveraiduk #learntoscuba #trydive #scubadiving #divinguk #xdeep #apeksImage attachmentImage attachment
