Dive South

Myself, Scott and Adam had a fantastic day yesterday trying the VMS RedBare up at Vobster Quay, with great briefing and supervision from Hugo and Seb. This is really a fascinating area of diving and I see why it is clearly on the increase.

I am nothing but impressed with the dive I had on the unit, and found it pretty user friendly. It also highlighted how little I think about the little buoyancy corrections I make throughout a Dive on open circuit, which have zero effect on CCR! It’s a learning curve though, and it has left me interested to learn more and gain more skills of course!

We were also fully geeked upon with the breakdown of our dives from Tim and also the glimpse into the engineering involved from Martin. I must admit I got a little lost in places when three engineers in one room started getting into it!
For any looking to have a go on a rebreather, I can heavily recommend it - a day well spent in my opinion!

Big thanks to Tim Clements and the guys at Vobster Quay for an inspiring day, to Hugo for his fantastic briefing and instruction, and to Seb for his supervision - it really was a great day!

If you are interested in having a go, get in touch with the guys up at Vobster Quay and you won’t be disappointed!

Two things though ....
1) Be aware that you will end the day wanting to know more, and
2) Let Lisa know if you’re going...she’s not happy that we went without her!

If you are thinking about improving your dive skills and taking it to the next level, the Master Rescue course is certainly a challenging and very rewarding course. Tim was kind enough to share his thoughts on his course with us, which saw him qualify this weekend. Thank you so much Tim, you and your buddy Kev worked very hard to achieve this and it was a very well earned certification, well done!

Why did you get into diving? And if you are not a diver yet, why not?

I would like to order 2 more tee shirts for your next order if that's OK?

Fantastic pool session today! First confined dive in the RAID Master Rescue dives for this month, and two great students! Kev impresses me every time with how far he has come since starting - rock solid hover fella! It was a pleasure to meet Tim and see his skill set in the water...you can tell he was well trained! Well done lads, I’m looking forward to the next few weeks training!

Well done to Mike on his first pool session on Scuba:) Great work towards your Open Water 20 qualification. Getting a feel for the buoyancy control and neutral buoyancy without the distraction of fins really paid off. Looking forward to next weeks session!

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! ☺️

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

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
