I’m working to finish off my Dive Master certification by the end of June. After getting back from Hawaii, I jumped into the pool on Saturday to assist with Jessica’s second weekend Open Water class. The class went really smoothly and I mainly was in charge of crowd control, keeping the students in line and together (they tend to drift across the pool if you don’t keep tabs on them). I helped Jessica demonstrate mask removal and swimming with no mask, one of the skills the students had to perform. Lou was there with a new toy, the BladeFish which is a new fancy DPV that is compact (really it looks just like my house fan, only without the base!). It was fun to watch him scooting around in the water, but with the noises echoing off the pool walls that thing was LOUD!
Lawrence was also there helping Lou make a video of the new toy, and he put together a little video of the various instructors working with students. Take a look and get an idea of what the SCUBA pool sessions are all about!
