These guys were great when Aaron Bruce ran it but he has since left so I'm not sure what it is like now.Don't know if they're the best, but Emperor Divers have a "tech" group - Red Sea Technical Diving - Emperor Divers TEKSTREME
Have only done Emperor's recreational stuff, but had no complaints with them.
I think it was the strange bsac instructor training photo, bit last of the summer wine for me. A lot of very high end recent instructor certs at one centre (only imho) it would seems to me that when not diving being in the pub watching the rugby or soccer is of great importance, not relly my cup of tea either. i went back and found some interesting bits from Aarron, but he is not around by the looks of it.
I just dont think it would suit me, be more happy in the u.k.
A rant, yes, when a comment on a thread is made directly against me (you didn't get the Beer n Rugby thing from the Tekstreme blog as you claim cos it aint there, its in my profile and nowhere else), then I will reply!mmmm,
You were right about the funny talking, bit of a rant steve. Are you clock work or on duracells. I think I recognise chris from littlehampton, good all roud egg. And would i have dived with Sarha many years ago on Ghazala, think the last thing Sarha would want is 2 hours on the thistlegorm (me too) Cant see the piont of getting up at 4.30 just to make sure you miss the slack ??. Well at least i did not waste my money to be patronised, think i will stay at home and count my dives one day i may have as many as steve got this year. (not how many steve..........its How). i thought emperor was not the place to spend my money, nice p.r job Steve
Congratulations on the promotion fella, I hadn't heard.Hi all.
I still work at Ocean College, mostly running the technical dive operation alongside Leigh Cunningham.
Just to clarify, cos I'd hate someones holiday to be spoilt by bad advice - Chris Armstrong does not work at Tec Guru, and Aaron, despite being a top bloke and excellent instructor is struggling with Egyptian red tape and as such Tech Guru is not yet allowed to operate in the Red Sea so Aaron is working for/from Werner Lau until such time as his paperwork is sorted.I'd reccommend contacting Aarron or Chris Armstrong at TecGuru directly, if I was looking for CCR guiding in Sharm, that's who i'd use.
Hope this helps,
No, its called Tekstreme, I dont know whose posts you are reading but I never spelt it that way, try reading em again before trying to score points!!Thanks Jim,
I can see where you are comming from thanks for the heads up, I would like to know what if any expedition experience there is at Tekstreame or is it now Texstream as Stevie puts it. And for the record steve 3,500 logged dives 300 ccr logged hours and still not enough to teach it in my opinion ( thats me not you steve). bert
