Richard looked good though😉

Brilliant - love it! Xx

Sorry guys, the 5:30am starts are killing me, look so tired. I promise it will get better, after all everyone’s got to start somewhere. First time is always the worst...right?

<fist pump>Dive master training has started earlier than expected wooooohooo!! Very happy with this - awesome idea 🙂

For everyone who is missing being underwater at the moment, we can still all share in other ways with each other. So here’s one you might be interested in, tune in with Andy Torbet on the Suunto Facebook page for a Q&A at 6pm today. Get your questions ready and let us know what you think after the session...
It’s sad to see our local inland site temporarily closing the doors today, but rest assured we will all be there as soon as the doors open again. Sending you all Love and stay safe guys x

Dive South

Good afternoon all.

I thought I should let our divers and students know about our position regarding the current Coronavirus situation.

At the moment there seems to be a small amount of concern over the usage of school equipment - particularly, but not limited to regulator use.

The Dive South team have always and will always put the health and safety of our students, divers, and team, first. Those of you who have dived with us will of course be well aware of this!

We are continually checking in on recommendations with regards to the maintenance of hygiene of our equipment, in line with advice from the DAN Europe which includes sanitisation of regulators, masks, snorkels, and BCD inflators. So far there is nothing advised that we do not already do, but you may notice the addition of sanitisers pool side and at dive sites.

We are continuing to run pool sessions, and teaching, diving etc.

Naturally the usual advice applies – if you don’t feel well, then you should not be diving! This advice hasn’t really changed, but on top of that, current government and NHS advice applies with regards to self-isolation etc. and we will update our standards and practices accordingly.

It you are on a course, or are diving with us:

• If you develop symptoms of a cough or fever or have been in contact with someone who has the virus, please could you let us know as soon as possible and do not join us. You should self-isolate and call 111 in line with current advice. We can always rearrange things.

• If you have been on holiday within 14 days of seeing us please let us know.

• Likewise, of course should any of our team become symptomatic for COVID-19 the same guidelines will be followed. If this prevents us from running a course, we can rearrange them if - and as - needed.

• If there are any pool or dive site closure that affect us, we will let you know as soon as we find out, and make alternative arrangements if we can, or reschedule.

If you have any concerns, please speak to one of the team or email info@divesouth.co.uk

Dive Safe!

Sam Gould managed to get some good shots on his first real dive with his camera, I expect he will post later. his bouyancy was great. Good to see David Rintoul.

SURFACE COVER ASSISTANCE - We are heading up to Vobster this weekend coming for some teaching and we would love some help with surface cover on the Sunday. It would be for two dives, so there will be plenty of time for you and a buddy to get a couple of dives in too, so if anyone is available to help that would be awesome, let us know:)
Last week’s pool session was great fun, well done to Ben and Jenny on their RAID try dive. We thoroughly enjoyed introducing you to scuba, you took to all the skills and neutral buoyancy brilliantly, you guys were naturals:) Great to see Sam and Cam getting on so well with their RAID drysuit confined work too, sorry guys had to post the photo of you both pool side. Unfortunately no underwater photos this week as we had no one spare and no time to set up the GoPro in the pool. Join us on Sunday morning in the warm pool:)) @divesouth #divesouth #diveraidukImage attachment
We are in love with the Ocean, and being underwater, are you? Happy Valentines Day everyone 💦💗

I tried all sorts over the years. Even short versions like in the video. I found these IST ones great as they fitted well with 7mm /3mm/ or just shorts. They didnt ride up like some, stuck in place but were still flexible. You can always borrow them and give them a try in the pool or on a dive.

Thank you to Coast2Coast for hosting Saeed Rashid Focus Visuals, great talk tonight about "Getting the Shot" loads of very useful tips about how to get the best out of your underwater photography, whether that be with a GoPro, Compact, Bridge (mirrorless) or DSLR camera. I know a few of our budding photographers were gutted they couldn't make it tonight. Dr Alex Tattersall Underwater Visions Nauticam UK distributor was also on hand for any housing questions people had too. Lovely to see everyone and thank you:) Leon Butler and Jo Jo

If any of you would like to know more about tonight and underwater photography please let me know, I am always happy to talk Photography and I will share what I can:) And if you are interested in any photography workshops with Saeed and Alex let me know because I am really keen and have been for a while to be able to arrange something through us or combined with coast2coast and any other local dive groups.

I will be looking to be able to offer RAID photography specialty course soon too, so watch this space:)

Thanks, Lisa
